What better way to throw a bridal shower for our Marketing Communications Specialist, Dani, than to make it a surprise party and then blog about it!
While looking at our new bridal shower invitations, Dani had pointed out her favorite, so we used the Pink and Purple Bubbles Bridal Shower Invitation and the matching pieces as the inspiration for all of our bridal shower ideas.
We used the Pink and Purple Table Decor party decorations and made banners on the back of the chairs and scattered them on the table. We set the table with mis-matching plates and cloth napkins to give it a unique look.
Our new bridal shower decorations are chic, modern and versatile to use when planning a bridal shower for the soon to be Mrs. We put together our top 5 bridal shower decoration ideas using different versions of the table decor and gift tags from Pear Tree Greetings! But we’re always coming up with new ways to use these products, so don’t be surprised if we have a new ‘Top 5′ every week!
1. Centerpiece. This idea is featured in our Waffle Bar Couples Bridal Shower where the host used our Simple Strands Bridal Shower Decorations and paired it with these beautiful, yellow & white flowers to make this centerpiece idea. Very easy to do and makes a lasting impression on your guests.
2. Spruce up the Treats. Favors for guests aren’t expected at bridal showers, but it is a nice touch. This inexpensive idea was used in our Rustic Bridal Shower where the host baked cookies and attached these adorable Showers Ahead Favor Tags Bridal Shower Decorations. It’s a fun, added decoration that all guests can enjoy.

When my friend Amanda asked me to be a bridesmaid in her upcoming wedding, I was beyond excited! To make things even better, she let me host a couple’s shower for her and her future husband, and I had so much fun coming up with couples shower ideas!
Like every event that I plan, the invitations set the theme of the party. I decided on Pear Tree Greetings’ Simple Strands bridal shower invitation and was able to alter the colors to match the shower’s color scheme.
The Name in Lights yard sign greeted guests, along with a wooden pallet adorned with Simple Strands bridal shower decorations and pictures of the happy couple. The Simple Strands decorations were used throughout the entire event as accessories in mason jars and labels for drinks. After writing down a few date night ideas for the couple, guests grabbed a drink from the bloody mary and juice bars.
This bridal shower for my cousin was one of the simplest, but most colorful parties I’ve ever planned. The theme was decided by our choice of invitations, Pear Tree’s Multi Stripes Bridal Shower Invitations. The fun and bright colors, especially on the back, were so fun to play with, and they became the inspiration for most of our bridal shower ideas. The bride’s favorite colors were lavender and dark purple, so we used those as our primary colors and brought in many other colors from the invitation as accents.
Our original goal was to host this party outside, but weather prevented us from doing so. Still, our garden party in the living room turned out great! (Always good to have a backup plan!)
The plan for the décor was simple: use bright colors everywhere! We utilized lanterns, tissue-paper poms, fresh flowers and vases in many, many colors! We also scattered Pear Tree’s coordinating Multi Stripes Bridal Shower Decorations onto the guest tables and used it to create hanging garland behind our dessert table.
Our dessert table became another bright focal point for the décor. We served cookie dough cake pops and cake, both of which were divine. To dress the table up, we used more Multi Stripes Table Décor right on the table, as well as sewn into a garland hanging behind the table, and we added even more color with some brightly painted bud vases. To dress up our cake we attached purple flowers to the tops of skewers and paper straws—so simple and easy but so adorable! Don’t worry, we did serve food other than dessert.
