Whereas attending the wedding of a sister or best friend is usually a fun experience, planning a bridal shower party can be daunting. Worry not, we have some time-tested suggestions to get you started.
Nothing spells a promising future better than a garden party.
Keep everything floral and peaceful, ensure there are champagne flutes, fruit-flavored waters and foods that reflect the theme (e.g. floral shaped cookies). Add costumed servers to spice up the ambiance.
The bride to-be is definitely overwhelmed. Why not give her a spa day?
Consider hiring a masseuse. Keep the theme simple and decorate with a calming and relaxing color palette of all blues and greens.
Arrange for give-a-ways like aromatherapy oils, bath salts, or scented candles, packaged in a favor box and tie with ribbons.
For a fun idea, a morning shower with some tasty mimosas will get the ladies chatting.
Consider offering a variety of juice choices and bubbling champagne. You can also place a bar with fresh fruits as a help-yourself.
You can never go wrong with a coastal vibe – who doesn’t love the beach?
Incorporate starfish, an aquatint color palette, and seashells. Here, it’s all about sunshine and sand.
Does the bride-to-be have a Western side? Tell your guests to dress in their best cowgirl attire.
Decoration should revolve around horseshoes, horses, and hay bales. Don’t forget the country music.
How often do we get to try indulge? A bridal shower is one of those rare opportunities in life where carbs are sinless. Give the bride-to-be a true treat with a stunningly indulgent shower.
Offer fancy cupcakes with fresh berries, whipped frosting, and crushed candy bars toppings. Variety is key.
The idea here is to have the guests compete at being mixologists – a fun way to get everyone a little tipsy!
Provide a variety of drinks and mixers and some drink recipes to get your guests started. Offer a prize to the best drink made.
Sometimes, the best conversations happen in the most relaxed and intimate settings.
A girls’ night-in, with some drinks, movies, pizza, games, candy and matching pajamas isn’t a bad idea at all.
For an unconventional and memorable theme, consider giving the bride-to-be a tropical get away.
Design the atmosphere with palm leaves, fresh berries, coconuts and fresh flowers.
For a more high-end theme, consider doing the ‘Gatsby!’
All you’ll need are classic cocktails and a clear dress code theme.
We hope our suggestions have got your creative juices flowing. Feel free to mix and match – all that matters is that you throw a memorable party that sparked a lot of relaxed, fun conversation between the gals.
