Martinis and Manicure theme was a hit!!!
Beauty school students provided free mani's for all guests; purple martinis which we called "Jolinies" in honor if the bride to be we're served; the party room was adorned with shades of purple throughout. Success!
The game was a huge hit!
The end of the game--the story ended and then the last sentence said was "that was fun, RIGHT?!!! It was hilarious to see the thought to be winner have to pass the gift one more time!
Most Touching Moment
The bride opened a basket with candles in different sizes and colors for each event in the future. The poem was read and it was very emotional and beautiful.

Activities / Games
We played one game which was a blast! One wrapped present was on every table and a story was read out loud; guests were to listen closely to the words "left" or "right" and pass around the table accordingly. Person holding the gift at the end wins that gift! Gifts were graciously provided by one if the bridesmaids, Pam, who chose all kitchen themed gifts; included pizza stone, serving trays, etc.
The shower was kept under $800
