Here are my 10 favorite bridal shower themes to take your shower out of the ordinary…
1. 1950′s Happy Housewife Shower
These adorable women certainly are not Desperate Housewives.
In fact, these beauties were inspired by theiconic 1950′s housewives,
but with a modern twist and a more vibrant color palette!
This is such a creative way to celebrate a bridal shower or a birthday party.
What women doesn’t like to get all dolled up and celebrate?!
2.Wine & Cheese Tasting Shower
3.Spa Day/Relaxation Shower
Wedding planning can be a lot of work so take some time off before the
big day with a spa bridal shower. Treat the guest of honor to a little pampering
at her spa themed bridal shower, while you enjoy the relaxing atmosphere, too.
Check out spa and retreat locations near you to find the perfect venue and then
take a peek at the spa bridal shower ideas below to help get you started.
Spa bridal shower invitations: Your bridal shower theme invitation can
include any image related to a day at the spa such as a face mask with cucumbers,
a robe and slippers, a bottle of nail polish, or a hair dryer. Let the guests know
what they will need to bring (it’s a good idea to check with the spa/retreat
where you are hosting the party), the general schedule of the day, and all
other important details about the event. Create your event and send a
digital invitation through Punchbowl and eliminate the need to do paper invites!
4.Cooking -Themed Shower
If the bride-to-be is addicted to the Food Network and has a pile
of Gourmet magazines sitting by the door, a kitchen-themed
bridal shower might be right up her alley.
Some ideas to get you going:
Use a cooking themed invitation or modify recipe cards with the time,
address, and instructions. See below for gift theme suggestions
you can include with the invitations.
How about giving your guests a theme for their gifts?
Ask groups of guests to bring either a favorite kitchen gadget,
cookbook or gourmet ingredients. Or have every guest bring their favorite
recipe and create a collection of them for the bride. Just make sure
that if you are asking for themed gifts, you make it clear on the invitations.
In keeping with the theme, I think that providing appetizers and desserts
that require a bit of interaction are interesting (and keeps you out of the
kitchen all day!). Try fondue, a hamburger slider bar or decorate-your-own sugar cookies.
For the cocktails:
The focus of this party is most definitely the menu so bring on the cocktails!
Go retro with gin and tonics or old-fashioneds. Or spice it up with a margarita bar!
5.Candy/Love is Sweet Bridal Shower
Use a candy themed invitation or modify recipe cards with the time, address,
and instructions. See below for gift theme suggestions you can include with the invitations.
