This post was sponsored by Oriental Trading, however, all opinions are my ownOur family recently had the privilege of hosting a bridal shower for a good friend of my daughter’s. This sweet bride has spent so much time at my home that I feel like she is one of my own. In fact one time her father called and asked if I was ready to adopt her, since she hadn’t seen her own family in so long! Since she is so dear to our family we wanted to make her shower feel special and came up with some easy bridal shower ideas.
My girls really took the lead on this party and with the help of Oriental Trading they did a great job. They picked out the beautiful garden party table ware to enjoy. It made the food buffet look so pretty. The bride kept commenting on how gorgeous all the plates, cups and napkins were.
They picked out these sweet little chocolate roses for favors for the guests. They were just the right size for a sweet little bite and the colors went just right with the table ware.
To really make your table shine and still have easy clean-up, use these fancy plastic forks. Your guests will feel elegant and you will have no clean-up. We kept the menu simple and asked a couple of close friends to bring a plate of nibbles to help us out. This is one of my favorite tips, because prepping all the food can take a lot of time. Ask for some help from a few close friends and you will enjoy the event even more.
We made the Bride-To-Be feel special by giving her this sash and sweet tiara. We also pulled out the big comfy chair as her spot of honor to sit and enjoy her shower.
Probably the first question all guests ask when the arrive at a shower is where do they put their gift. Make it simple and straight forward and create a designated place right by the chair of honor clearly labeled with a fun chalkboard. You don’t need to be shy about it, because after all a bridal shower is where we shower a special young lady with gifts.
A bridal shower is a wonderful time to get together with family and friends to celebrate the bride. It needs to be special, but it doesn’t need to be overwhelming especially with these easy tips.
