3 Bridal Shower Ideas

Are you throwing your best friend a bridal shower and looking for a theme? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We are sharing our top 3 bridal shower ideas to help inspire decorations, invitations, treats and more for the bride-to-be and her friends to enjoy!

1. Rustic-themed. At this bridal shower, bridesmaids used our Showers Ahead Bridal Shower Invitation and changed the colors to pink and grey. They used various shades of both colors in their decorations, food and treats. They strung our matching Showers Ahead Table Decor throughout the room. They also made a “bride-to-be” sign out of pink, kraft and black paper. It turned out to be a beautiful shower celebrating a very special bride.

Wedding Gift Ideas: Homemade Pizza Sauce

Wedding gift ideas
If you’re anything like me, you have countless parties to attend this summer. From weddings, to baby showers and barbeques… the list goes on.

I’ve been searching for wedding gift ideas that I could make, to pair with items on my friend’s registry. Of course, her registry was filled with appliances, cooking utensils and towels—the usual. Being budget cautious, I hunted her registry for something affordable. I spotted a beautiful Williams and Sonoma Pizza Pan. The price was right, but something about a pizza pan just seemed lame. Boring. Heartless. Ok, I’ll stop now. Luckily, my creativity kicked in, and I thought, let’s make it a date night! Pizza pan, pre-made wheat crust, homemade pizza sauce, a fancy pizza cutter and a hand crocheted blanket to cozy up with. Sounds meaningful, sweet and thoughtful, right? Great, I thought so too! But one problem. I am not the greatest cook.

I stumbled upon this FANTASTIC recipe that’s easy. I even tested it on a pizza before gifting it. After all I can’t let my pizza sauce ruin the end of my friend’s “date night.” It did not disappoint. And as long as you’re going the extra mile, why not make some for yourself? Here’s the easy recipe from thebusybhomemaker.com

Here are 3 wedding thank you ideas to make your card stand out when guests are opening them.

1. Include printed photos of the guests. This idea has been a hit with friends and family!
