a handyman and a housewife

On Saturday afternoon Hubby & I hosted a 
couples wedding shower for our friends,
Lauren & Matt.

we used my red kitchen aid mixer & Hubby's toolbox 
as the anchors in the centerpiece.
then we placed other tools
(i.e. hammer, wire cutters, tape measure, etc.)
around his toolbox and kitchen utensils
(i.e. spatula, wooden spoon, whisk, etc.)
around my mixer.
 the finishing touch was
a vase of yellow gerbera daisies and mums inside the mixer.

the total cost of our centerpiece was $4.00!
all we purchased were the flowers!

we were also able to use another toolbox as our
serving piece for plates, napkins, and silverware.

i thought they were both absolutely adorable!
a great way to carry the theme from the invitation
to the party.

what are your favorite themes for wedding showers?
