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.

“Paper Doll” Theme

A Formal Affair  Dress and Tuxedo Favor Boxes (Set of 24)

Do you remember playing with paper dolls when you were a kid? You know, the dolls that you cut out from magazines that had different outfits, such as a wedding dress, summer outfit, fall clothes, etc…Did you ever wonder what it would be like to be a paper doll and have other people dress you up? Well now you don’t have to wonder with a “Paper Doll” theme.

Since this theme revolves around paper, so should your invitations of course…if it’s possible, handcraft your invitations with cut outs of paper dolls. If you can’t do this, then regular invitations will be okay (if you can find some with a picture of a doll or silhouette of a woman on them would be great). For decorations, have all types of paper products…paper streamers, bells, machete, anything you can think of that’s made out of paper (don’t forget the plates and napkins).

You could have “paper thin” treats, such as crepes, thin mints, lettuce wraps, anything that could be considered “paper thin”. For games, you could have the guest go into teams and have them create the bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses out of shredded paper (the type you can get from offices, banks, etc.) and have the bride wear it.

This theme is creative, different, and fun and that’s what a bridal shower is supposed to be right? Enjoy yours with this theme!

Recipe Theme

“Love Beyond Measure”  Heart Measuring Spoons with Free Personalized Tag

Do you know a bride to be that’s learning how to cook or one who enjoys cooking? Does she have two, three, or four recipe boxes or books filled with recipes from appetizers to desserts? Then why not give a shower that relates to what she loves, a recipe theme…

Invitations can be related to the theme of the shower…you could have invitations set up to look like a recipe and ask the guest to bring a recipe on an index card to share. For decorations, you could have small kitchen gadgets and other kitchen utensils, such as wooden spoons, around the house.

For food, you could have meat, fruit, and veggie trays and finger sandwiches, but if you plan on keeping with the theme, you could have the guest make different types of quick dishes with items at the party. Games could be played, such as having several ingredients and coming up with a dish or whole meal using the ingredients…you could also play other games too.

Gifts for the guest could be small kitchen gadgets, such as small whisks, melon balers, veggie peelers, etc. or you could give the guest small jars of pre-mixed food with recipes, such as oatmeal cookies.

If you’d like something different, something unique, and you enjoy cooking and creating meals, then this theme is for you!
