Being in the bridal biz, it seems we hear weekly about a different themed shower for the lucky bride or couple. If you are the planner of the shower, all you have to do is scan Pinterest, and your imagination is fueled with hundreds of interesting party ideas! Here are a few we’ve heard about.
Around the World. Here’s a fun theme, especially if the couple plans to travel abroad for their honeymoon! Food served would be cocktails and appetizers from the country/countries to be visited. Invitations would certainly have the colors and feel of those countries, and the shower decorations would carry the same theme. Gift ideas would include maps, travel accessories, gifts for the home with an international flavor, ethnic food stuffs from places the couple plans to visit, or photo albums/scrapbooks for their special trip.
Naturescape. This is the perfect theme for couples that enjoy activities in the great outdoors. This shower could take place at a picnic site with a campfire or favorite hilltop or creek side destination. Foods would obviously be picnic or hiking fare and some gifts could include certificates for outdoor/sporting stores, camping equipment, comfortable outdoor clothing, cookbooks of camping recipes. Shower guests could even jointly purchase a favorite local adventure like river rafting, guided fishing or cross country ski lessons!
Yard and Garden. A great idea for those that love to dig and watch things grow or who are fans of organic foods. A backyard garden, garden center cafe or botanical center would be a beautiful backdrop to host this party. Gifts could include gardening tools, hats and gloves, seed packets, favorite plants, reference books and cuttings from their friend’s gardens.
The Entertainers. What a great idea for that couple who loves to host! As guests, you can shower them with bottles of wine or favorite beers, a large beverage serving chest, serving glasses or dinnerware pieces, cookbooks that focus on feeding crowds, party games or a backyard fire-pit. Since these couples enjoy being with their friends, a large space…indoors or out, would be the perfect spot for this shower!
Tools and Gadgets. The couple that gadget-geeks together, stays together! A garage would be fun for this one, or maybe even a small industrial space if they are all about the tools. Items to be gifted can come from home improvement stores, auto parts or unique gadget stores. Guests should try for both the unusual and the basics.
So many themes to choose from, and this is just the beginning! Happy planning!
