Since Jess and Robert's wedding is less than a month away, we thought it high time to celebrate them in our best Southern style with a couples shower BBQ. Jess and I and the other hostesses went to law school together, and several of us were in the same first year section. Robert is the brother of one of Richard's best friends from Wofford, so everyone is interconnected somehow or another.

We hosted the party in Candy's neighborhood clubhouse and between the five of us, we put together a menu of BBQ (thanks Robert!), oriental coleslaw, hashbrown casserole, fancy baked beans, and an array of appetizers and Sweet Reba desserts. No one left hungry!

We used burlap table covers and pretty white lanterns to create a festive atmosphere.
The best part for me was seeing so many old friends, and I can't wait to see everyone again at the wedding!
some of my favorite Columbia girls- Rebecca, Bec and Ashley- miss them!
