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.

Derby-Themed Bridal Shower Ideas

Even though California Chrome had already been in the winner’s circle of the Kentucky Derby a few months before, this bride loved her Lucky in Love derby-themed shower, complete with fancy dresses and big, floppy hats traditionally worn at the race. To set the tone and tie all the bridal shower ideas together, the bride-to-be chose Off to the Races Bridal Shower Invitations.

Before heading to the track, all of the guests met at a local restaurant for lunch and to shower the bride with gifts. The table was sprinkled with photos of the bride growing up, along with pink and gold accents using the Gold Faux Glitter Small Table Decor. At each place setting were small favor boxes adorned with a golden horse and a ribbon stamped with each guest’s name. Inside the boxes were strawberry, chocolate and pistachio flavored French macarons and lucky two-dollar bills for betting.  Continue reading

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.

Couples Shower Ideas: Waffle Bar

Guest post by Molly Suedbeck from Suburban Events (Read her bio below.)

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!
Couples Bridal 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.

Bridal Shower Ideas: Recipe for Love

One of our favorite bridal shower ideas is the recipe theme, where guests bring their favorite recipes, along with gifts for the kitchen, to help out the new cooks. The handwritten recipes give the shower a personal touch and are a lasting gift the couple will treasure. planned a recipe shower using our Ingredients for Love recipe bridal shower invitations as inspiration. The simple one-sided invitation comes with a matching recipe card that has a place for your recipe on one side and a cute gingham pattern on the back, where you can also put the bride’s name and shower date as a memento. The gingham pattern led to a retro theme that tied all of their bridal shower ideas together.

Colorful flowers in classic aluminum cans set the tone for the retro table décor, along with canisters of kitchen utensils—a budget friendly idea you can create from your own supply! (Alternatively, you can purchase them, and give them to the bride as a gift when the party’s over.) The classic grilled cheese and tomato soup lunch fare took on a chic party feel when they cut them into mini bites. They kept the mini-food theme going with sliders and mini desserts, too.

Bright ideas for a Bridal Shower

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.
Bridal Shower Invitations -- Multi Stripes
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. :)
