Great Bridal Showers

Exotic Summer Theme

Hibiscus Favor Boxes filled with White Chocolate Hearts

Ah Summer…a time where the weather is warm and people go to the beach, when school is out, and when showers are all around. Have you ever wondered what summer feels like in the Amazon or Rainforest? Well find out with an exotic summer theme!

Invitations could be printed on a white or off-white paper and have the words in bright, tropical colors or you could have vines or flowers for a border around the invitation.

The basis for the theme is nature, so have the shower outdoors, if possible. Decorate the area with bright centerpieces, bamboo, tropical flowers, anything that sets the mood. Guest can dress in colors that fit the theme, such as a tropical shirt or flowery dress, or you could have the guest dress in plain or pale colors and have the bride (and groom if it’s a co-ed theme) in a color that fits the theme.

For food, you could have exotic foods, such as mangos, kiwi, or pineapples as part of your shower or you could have it catered by someone who prepares exotic dishes. The cake could have bright frosting or you could have tropical frosting flowers on the cake. For games, you could have a tropical treasure hunt or a bingo game with tropical bird names.

If you want to feel as if you’re in the Amazon or Rainforest, then try this theme!

Bridal Shower 80’s Style


Personalized Mint Tin – Retro

They say not to dwell on the past as it is gone and you can’t bring it back, but how many of us would love to go back to the 1980’s? The big hair, the neon-colored clothes, the music….well you can with a 1980’s style bridal shower.

Madonna bras, grease leggings, big hair with hot pink and purple, and valley girl make-up…this style will definitely bring you back to when snap bracelets were the hottest clothing accessory and when cell phones were just starting out.

Invitations could be sent out as DVD’s with a “Ferris Buller’s Day Off” style graphic or you could make your own by using different colored construction paper with lots of glitter. Wondering what type of games to play? How about “Pin the Tail on the Donkey” but with a twist…or “Musical Chairs” while playing 80’s music, like Olivia Newton-John or Duran Duran. There are so many options but regardless of what you choose, you will feel as if you were back in the 80’s.
