I have thrown that wonderful Alice in Wonderland – themed baby shower for my niece, and now I get news that a dear friend of my daughter’s will be getting married next September. My daughter and I will be hosting a bridal shower, so now it is time for me to begin considering themes for a bridal shower.
These sweets are from a Linens and Lingerie shower. This would be a cute way to dress the home with new linens and the bride with new lingerie.
This may have possibilites for our shower, an Alphabet Shower, where each guest is assigned a letter and has to bring a gift that starts with that letter. Decor would include alphabet letters, and cookies might be letter-shapes.
How about an “Around the Clock Shower”? Each guest is assigned a time of the day and brings a gift the couple would use during that time. It could be fun, but might not work for a guest with a specific gift in mind.
I think a lot of brides-to-be would enjoy a Tiffany’s themed shower! You can see more about this theme at my Tiffany party post here.
This is an interesting take on a vintage modern bridal shower. I like the use of the chevron pattern throughout the party decor. You can see more of it at Hostess with the Mostess blog here.
If I were to hold a Kitchen Shower where all the guests would help outfit the couple’s new kitchen, I would have to use colanders like these for centerpieces!
This is a lovely tablescape for a “Lovebirds” themed bridal shower.
There are so many ideas for showers:
Color Shower – Use the Bride’s wedding colors or favorite colors, and theme the shower around those.
Spa Shower – Arrange for manicures, pedicures and/or facials for guests.
Chocolate Shower – Serve up chocolate desserts and decorate in brown and a pastel color like pink or green.
Wine Tasting Shower – Arrange for a wine-tasting and serve up cheeses to go with the wines.
Backyard Barbecue Shower – A great idea for a couple’s shower.
Stock the Bar Shower – Another couple’s shower idea where guests bring glassware and alcohol to stock the bar!
Pajama Party Shower – Invite your guests to come in their pajamas.
Garden Party Shower – Set the party outdoors in the garden, or bring the outdoors in with pots of flowers on the tables, and serve food in flowerpots.
Travel Shower – Set the scene with maps and globes, send out invitations that look like passports or airline tickets.
Have fun planning your shower! I know I will continue to research ideas for the bridal shower I am helping to host next year!
