A bridal shower is a celebration of an upcoming wedding and a chance for the bride's friends and family to get together. A bridal shower theme can help to coordinate the décor and games that you play at the party. Bridesmaids, the maid of honor and family members work together to throw a bridal shower for the engaged couple or just for the bride.
Beach Bridal Shower
A beach theme allows the bridal party to get together and celebrate the upcoming wedding amidst tropical decorations, games and beach foods. The bridal shower can take place outside in a backyard with beach decorations such as beach balls, tiki torches, tropical flowers, sand pails and seashells. The guests celebrate while playing games such as limbo and volleyball for an active and energetic bridal shower. Serve seafood, finger sandwiches, fruit salad, pasta salad and potato salad for the event. You can also cook outside and serve hamburgers and hotdogs for a casual beach atmosphere at the bridal shower. Create sand art for bridal shower favors or you can use sea shells to decorate glass jars for a memorable favor. This is especially suitable for a destination wedding at a tropical locale.
Garden Tea Party
A garden tea party is an elegant way to celebrate a bridal shower. Serve a low tea menu, which includes cakes, scones and finger sandwiches. Include a variety of teas from which guests may choose. Set each table with non-matching teacups and saucers for an interesting table décor. Search for a variety of cups and saucers at flea markets and yard sales to keep the costs low. You can also ask for contributions of teacups and saucers from other members of the bridal party. Guests can take home the teacup as a bridal shower favor at the end of the party.
A kitchen shower is the perfect choice for a bride who loves to cook. Give heart-shaped measuring spoons or salt and peppershakers as favors with this bridal shower theme. Instruct guests to bring gifts of kitchen items for the baking and cooking bride to help set up her new kitchen after the wedding.
