Great Bridal Showers

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!

Arabian Nights Theme

Elegant Personalized Dupioni Silk Cosmetic Bags

You close your eyes and hear the music…thump thump thump from the sound of the drum…you hear the sweet sound of a lute and the slight sound of finger cymbals. You open your eyes and you see beautiful colored fabrics surrounding you and the dancing of belly dancers. You swear you’re in Arabia but you’re not…you’re at your bridal shower. If this seems too good to be true, it’s not with an Arabian Nights theme…

Invitations for this theme are bright colors, such as fuchsia, gold, and burnt orange…you could have simple invitations in the colors described or you could go fancy and use a scroll as an invitation. You can decorate with silk drapes, sheer curtains, and hanging lanterns…you want a bohemian, in another country feel to the room.

Food could be traditional items found at a shower…finger sandwiches, veggies, fruit, cakes, etc. or you could have Arabian food, such as Kabsa (meat mixed with rice), Arabic bread, and Ataif (small pancakes filled with nuts or cheese and doused with syrup). Games could be played, such as bingo and stump the bride…for entertainment, you could have a belly dancer and after the performance, the belly dancer teaches the bride to be and guest how to belly dance.

If you enjoy the colors, dance, and atmosphere of Arabia and have always wanted to go, then try this theme.
