A Perfectly Paired Menu For A Perfect Pair – A Couples Shower Menu

For our “Perfect Pair” themed couples shower we served heavy appetizers that were split into 4 stations.  Each station was paired with a different wine and beer.  We used chalkboards to label the foods and describe each pairing.  The stations were in different areas on the first floor of the house to encourage movement and mingling among the guests.  Click on the links here to view other details on the shower and games.
