Spring Showers

February 8

Happy Wedding Wednesday, friends! Since most of you probably have more than a few recently-engaged girlfriends, I thought we could have some fun thinking of shower themes! One of my favorite things to think about, actually. (:

Building a shower around the bride’s favorite color is always a fun non theme-y way to personalize a party. Incorporate bits of color throughout the decor, keeping it subtle and pretty. Drop fruit – think raspberries, blackberries or kiwi pieces – into champagne glasses to add a little something extra.

Mix and mingle around candy, petit fours and powdered sugar. Be sure to note the “dessert shower” on the invitation, so ladies can eat beforehand and get excited about what you’ve got planned!

Don your prettiest dresses and sit down for an intimate tea party with your best girls. A great idea for a bridesmaids luncheon or wedding-morning brunch, too!

Assign each guest a holiday and ask them to bring a corresponding gift. It’s so fun to see what people come up with here – a “Mr. and Mrs.” ornament for your first Christmas tree as a married couple, a set of linen napkins for the Thanksgiving table, or even a great bottle of champagne for New Year’s Eve.

Bring in one or two professionals and offer mani-pedis for all! I have been dying to try this myself, because how cute is this favor?

Let guests know where the bride-to-be plans to honeymoon and have everyone bring a little something to get her ready – a swimsuit, cute new ski hat, matching luggage or a honeymoon beach bag! Tie in the destination with a little something special – like sangria!

Let your imagination run wild, and really think about what the bride would appreciate most. There are so many fun ideas to try! What are your favorites?
