Valentine's Day Centerpiece Ideas
Everything you ever needed to know about cheese...almost!

A little something I'm working on...

I am helping plan a couples wedding shower for one of my best friends this Spring.  I am in the brainstorming stages now.  They did not want the traditional "around the house" shower because they have most everything for their home already.  They are, however, saving for new furniture so I came up with the Money Tree theme.  I'm trying to elaborate on this and so far I've been thinking about a "Tree of Life" theme, comparing their marriage to the growing branches of a tree or something to that affect.  Or the song "Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me"... What do you think?  Her favorite color is lime green.  So I was thinking of using Granny Smith apples as part of the decorations.  I've found great inspiration on hostessblog.com (for some reason Typepad is not letting me upload the pics).  I love how they used the branches and leaves with the apples.  The only thing is I don't want it to look Fall-ish.  If you have any ideas I would love to hear them!

Here are the plates and napkins we are using from my store:

They are a pretty casual and very modern couple so I didn't go with the usual bridal or marriage theme paper goods.  This will probably be in the evening and they love mojitos, which also incorporates the green, so I'm thinking that will be our signature cocktail.

I love the green apple motif idea...check out this cool apple from Miss Natalie at http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13833913 these would make for a great tablescape addition!

I like your theme. To make the tree more Spring-like, you can use paper flowers to attach to the branches.
