I recently threw a couples shower for an upcoming wedding. While I’ve done quite a few wedding and baby showers, this was my first couple’s shower! We served everything on my grandmother’s crystal to keep it nice, but made the food options much more hearty then normal shower food. Since men were coming we had food that is of more substance and more food choices then we normally would. Here is what we decided on for our couples shower menu.

Throwing a couple's shower? We've got recipes you'll want to use!

First, I decided to have pulled pork sandwiches. These are easy to make and so yummy. I made the pulled pork ahead of time and then heated it up the day of and kept it warm in the crock pot. They were at hit at the shower but any time we make them people love them. I had a tray for the buns and the meat separate so people could make their own sandwiches.
