Great Bridal Showers

Queen For A Day

“Royal Tea Lights” Jeweled Tea Lights (Set of Four Prince or Four Princess)

Don’t know what to get a bride to be who has everything they need? Are you stuck on ideas for a bridal shower for someone who has it all? Then why not make her a “queen for a day”? This theme is for the bride to be who doesn’t need the normal gifts.

Invitations for this shower can be a simple invite stating what the party is about, location, items to bring, etc…however, you could make the invitation relative to the theme by creating one similar to those from the old days that Kings and Queens sent. The invitation could say something like “Here Ye, Here Ye! The maid of honor requests your presence for a lovely shower for (bride’s name) as she will be crowned ‘Queen for the Day’.”

Decorations could be set up that match the color of the wedding or if possible, depending on where you have the shower, try to set up everything to look like a room from a castle including a throne (use a chair that’s tall and decorate it with ribbons) and crown. Food for the shower would be specific to the ‘queen’, as it’s her day and gifts could be items such as a spa package or expensive chocolate.

If you want to treat that special woman like the queen she is, then this theme is for you!

Jack and Jill Theme

Save the Date Vines Magnets

Tradition shows that most bridal showers are geared towards women…this is a time when the bride to be is surrounded by friends and family who dish out advice, whether good or bad, and a time when women can get together to talk about everything. It’s rare that you see men at a bridal shower (unless they were dragged to it!) because most men believe that bridal showers are just for women…well not anymore. In this modern day and age, bridal showers are not only geared towards women, but men too, as some showers are now co-ed. If you’re thinking of having a co-ed bridal shower, then try the “Jack and Jill” theme!

Invitations for this type of theme can be anything you want. You could have invitations that have a mix of masculine and feminine touches…flowers on the outside of the card and when opened, have sports memorabilia as a border around the invitation information, is one example.

Decorations could have masculine and feminine touches also…deep colors mixed with soft pastels or miniature cars with butterflies, anything is possible.

If the weather is beautiful, have your shower outside…a barbeque is a great way to have a co-ed shower, as it is something everyone will enjoy. A limbo contest, horseshoe toss, and volleyball are some of the games that everyone could play.

If you’re looking for something that everyone, even men, will enjoy, then this theme is for you!

Fashion Show Theme

Signature Style Purse and Shoe Favor Boxes and Placecard Holders (Set of 12)

Women love dressing up…wearing a new dress, buying the prettiest shoes, getting that $100 purse to match the new dress and shoes…it’s fashion and women love it. Do you know a bride to be who loves dressing up and sporting the newest dress? Does she look for the newest season’s fashions? Then why not have a fashion show shower?

For this theme, invitations can be anything you’d like…you could have a cutout of a high heeled shoe, a dress, purse, anything that relates to fashion. Decorations could be what you have at home…dresses, coats, purses, etc. all in different colors and textures…you could also have your decorations set up to look like a fashion runway, with streamers and strobe lights.

For food, you could have cookies cut in the shape of shoes, purses, bags, etc. and have each decorated…you can have a cake made to look like a dress (wedding dress maybe…). For games, you could have a paper bridal dress contest, trivia about fashion, or have a runway show…the possibilities are endless.

If you love dressing up, love wearing the newest clothes and you want to enjoy a day as a ‘fashion model’, then try this theme!
