Add a playful twist to a bridal shower by bringing the outdoors in.
Personalize card stock with event details and the words “You are invited to a bridal garden party.” Include one of the mini parasols typically used for cocktails with each invite. Pen registry information on a flower-shaped note card created with a stencil.
Display several square glass vases of a mixture of tightly grouped mini roses or tulips cut short so that the buds appear just above the rim of the vase.
Cover serving tables with simple white tablecloths and thread chandelier crystals, onto fishing line and hang at varying lengths in the windows of your party room.
Cocktail and Menu Ideas
Get inspired by foodnetwork.ca’s bridal shower menu ideas. For cocktails, try some of foodnetwork.ca’s girly favourites: the Pink Flamingo, which tastes like pink lemonade; a sparkling Pomegranate Cocktail and the classic Champagne Cocktail.
Split the guests up into teams and test everyone’s knowledge of the bride-to-be by creating a quiz about her. Ask fun questions like where her first date with the groom-to-be was or how many wedding gowns she tried on before finding the right one.
If you have a crafty crowd, have guests design their own handbags. Provide each guest with an inexpensive basic black clutch and provide a variety of ribbon, rhinestones and, of course, faux flowers in keeping with the theme.
