Bridal Shower Theme Ideas

1. Wondering how to plan a bridal shower, how soon should you make arrangements, setting the date, activities or what about gifts for guests? Martha Stewart never ceases to amaze with her step by step instructions to plan a bridal shower.

2. Feast your eyes on this beautiful Bridal Shower Brunch by Jenny Collier complete with a mimosa bar! Gold polka dots on burlap, gold mason jar centerpieces, delicate hydrangeas, and a mint, pink and gold color palette set the stage for an amazing shower. And, as a unique party favor guests each took home a mason jar to make their own sweet tea.

3. He loves me, he loves me not! How perfect is this daisy inspired party by The Tom Kat Studio for a bridal shower, birthday party or even Mother’s Day? Some of the pretty party decor included a unique and creative tissue paper medallion backdrop that resembled daisies and a simple “he loves me” banner.
