Bridal Shower 101

Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is almost upon us and we’re looking forward to the relaxation ahead! Now that we are in the midst of spring, many of you may have bridal showers lined up to attend over the next couple of weeks. Or perhaps you will be playing hostess for a loved one’s shower or as a bride, you are looking for some inspiration and ideas. With this in mind, we’ve put together a few decor ideas and themes that can help you along the way.

The first step is to decide on the theme or ambience for your bridal shower (also dependent on your choice of venue).  For instance, you’re feeling the modern vibe then stick to a color scheme of muted tones and greys with accents of gold, silver, or bronze.  Eiffel towers add an instant sleek modern touch.  Or you could go for a more traditional and true favorite approach and host a brunch or tea party.  In this case, edible favors compliment perfectly with a fete centered around a meal.


Next, plan out the menu. As mentioned above, brunches and teas are traditional favorites but don’t be afraid to try something new.  Does the bride love a good party? Consider hosting a cocktail hour bridal shower.  A variety of cocktail glasses and drinkware infuses a celebratory mood that guests will appreciate.

Create a signature cocktail featuring the bride’s favorite drink – a twist on a margarita or martini will be a sure hit.  Add hand written menus on paper or chalkboards.  When it comes to desserts, you can keep it simple but charmingly festive with an old-fashioned cookie bar or platters of ice cream sandwiches.

Finally, don’t be afraid to experiment with themes and decor.  A vintage themed wedding does not require a similarly themed bridal shower. Showers are a time when friends and family of the bride gather for an intimate party of cheer and merriment.  However and wherever you choose to host the bridal shower, be sure to remember it’s all about creating beautiful memories.


“Around the Clock” Bridal Shower Theme Ideas!

A bridal shower is a fun time for the bride to celebrate her new adventure into marriage. Close friends and family all join around the bride to be for a special celebration, typically over gifts and food. There are many different bridal shower themes that are popular, one of which is the “Around the Clock” bridal shower. The bridal shower gifts and theme are all centered on a certain time of day. Each guest is asked to bring a gift that reflects a certain time during the day. For example: say cousin Jill gets 6:00 AM, she may choose to bring something related to coffee as anyone who gets up that early definitely needs it! The bridal shower theme revolves around numbers and daily tasks. Gifts can be things for the house, kitchen supplies or gifts for the new married couple. There are plenty of fun bridal shower games that you can play to include numbers or household items, such as bridal shower bingo. Associate each space with something that pertains to a certain time, the questions will be “This drink is found on the table with a plate of waffles or cereal”. Instead of covering numbers each square has an answer to a question, in this case “orange juice”!

For “five o’clock” give the bride and groom a personalized jar glass set to serve drinks for cocktail hour! They can choose to enjoy a cool glass of lemonade on a hot summer day or serve guest drinks at a small cocktail party. These bridal shower gifts are really fun for any new couple. Be sure to include a time of day for each guest on the invitation along with a popular example in case they need inspiration.

Wedding Parties: New Bridal Shower Theme Ideas

So first, since my mind is very wedding centered and one day soon I’ll be attending my own–  I have a great bridal shower idea to share with you. I have no part in the planning and coordinating of my own so here’s hoping this idea works for you!

My aunt suggested a tea party bridal shower which, quickly might I add, got nixed by every other woman in the room. Mind you, in my family the bridal shower is a adorable affair my aunts throw together to show love and doting appreciation on the bride and welcome her into the wondrous club of housewives and mothers my family consists of. We’re strong minded, outspoken Hungarian women who sure know how to make a good pie– if I can humbly say, it’s a pretty awesome club. Hence why throwing a food oriented bridal shower seems like a no-brainer to me.

Anyways, bridal shower themes? Stick with something that is related to the bride but still fun and not run-of-the-mill. If your bride is a foodie, try a potluck bridal theme. I know it sounds tacky but stick with me on this one. The bride is going to be entering into a marriage and more likely than not won’t have an established cooking repertoire. So the idea would be each guest brings a something to eat that their husband or family has loved and include the recipe. The bridesmaids then have the fun task of collecting the cards and putting them together to create a recipe book or box. This way your bride to be will have plenty of recipes to choose from in the future.

Wedding Cupcake Favor Boxes From

Take home desserts and food related items work great as bridal shower favors. The point of a bridal shower is to spoil and embarrass the bride so favors are not necessary. However, some easy favor ideas are personalized iced cappuccino packs and cute little cupcake favor boxes which work great with left over dessert cupcakes.

The bonus for a food themed bridal shower? Your bride gets to avoid the nerve-wrecking embarrassment of opening lingerie in front of her groom’s family. Instead, have your guest list stick with food oriented gifts- aprons, cookbooks, decorating books and other Martha Stewart-esque options.

Oh man, I can not imagine anything worse than having to smile politely and quickly hide that creepy zebra print negligee your kooky Aunt Katie got you before your future mother-in-law sees it.

Showers, Flowers and Fun for Hours: Top Summer Bridal Shower Ideas

The summer of 2011 will see more couples tying the knot than in any other season. Summer’s long days, golden sunshine and mild temperatures make it the perfect time to plan a wedding, and for every bride, there must be a bridal shower!

If you’re planning a summer bridal shower, it’s a great idea to hold the event outdoors to take advantage of the sunshine. There’s something so decadent yet laid-back about an afternoon in the garden, just the girls, with plenty of champagne, gossip and giggles!

A great theme for your outdoor summer bridal shower is ‘vintage English tea party’. You can set a picnic table up on the grass with a pretty pink and blue tablecloth and some old-fashioned tea dishes. Serve cucumber sandwiches – it’s an English tradition! – along with scones, cupcakes and macaroons in pretty pastel colors. You can decorate with lots of pink and blue blooms, hand-tied for that homegrown effect, or arranged in glass jam jars or vintage tea tins. Finally, treat your guests to a little teacup tealight favor, so they’ll always have a memory of your tea party bridal shower!

The garden in summertime is simply awash with color, what will all the fruit and flowers in bloom. This next bridal shower theme draws its colors from a simple palette that combines the acid brightness of daffodils with the subtle red of country apples. It’s a fresh, vibrant and utterly irresistible combo! A basket of apples makes a delightfully simple centerpiece, and you can display apple-themed favors at each place setting too. Bring out the yellow of the daffodils by laying out yellow napkins, plates and chair covers, and serve miniature cupcakes with lemon yellow icing – ultra sweet, and simply too pretty for words!

If you’re not keen on the whole outdoorsy, picnic-style event, but fancy something with a little more style and ooh-la-la, why not hold a bridal shower with a ‘Parisian chic’ theme? The colors for this theme are ever-stylish black and white, with pink accents, and plenty of bling – think jeweled shoes, dresses and even cake. You can bring the outdoors in with some pretty pink floral decorations, but keep the look chic and the décor ultra sophisticated. As the bridal shower is usually a girly event, work with feminine symbols like purses, high heels and perfume bottles for the place card holders, invitations and favors. It’ll be the most glamorous bridal shower ever!
