Pink & Gray Couples' Shower

Today's post is for Jennifer who's throwing a pink and gray couples' shower at night time. The shower is for a very large group of people and is to have a 'casual cocktail party' feel. Candles, pale hues, multiple textures and romance prevail in my theme to create an intimate and elegant environment despite the number of people.

I love the way the pink is combined with glasses, flowers and cake. The pink and gray hardly came to my mind for decoration. I've changed my view.

Anne said...

The faint gray brought out the romantic pink. It was a nice touch. Great combination too.

Aprons for Women said...

How elegant! What a pretty color scheme. I wouldn't really think about using gray as a color for a shower, but how nicely it goes with the pink. And especially, being a couples shower, the men aren't overloaded with pink:-)
