This is where bridesmaids come in handy. Bridesmaids should utilized for duties such as planning the bachelorette party and a wedding shower.
To help you make the bride-to-be feel special, we’ve rounded up a list of five fun inspiration bridal shower ideas that are perfect for spring. Move over pink cupcakes and dainty hors d’oeuvres – your bridal shower will be so much more fun with our five creative bridal shower ideas!
1. Create a colorful juice stand that blends fashion and function.
Mimosas are refreshing and tasty – seemingly the perfect drink for a spring-time party. However, having an entire bar stocked with a variety of cocktails is an attraction for the eyes and the taste buds. You can create a fun and fresh party atmosphere by setting up a bevy of colorful beverages in vintage glass decanters. In addition, you can create DIY labels to incorporate a crafty vibe and garnish your drinks with fresh fruit to appeal to foodies.
2. Use what you have for decoration and party favors.
It’s simple to jazz up your table decor with uncomplicated add-ons like displaying a floral centerpiece in a silver bowl. Or, you can make a flower chandelier for a whimsical accent by hanging three dozen flowers with ribbons from a delicate lace-covered embroidery hoop. Or, you can easily brighten up your table with DIY homemade rose napkin rings. Additionally, give any flowers you may have leftover from creating floral arrangements a second-life by placing them in bundles into attractive containers and offering them to your guests as party favors. However, party favors aren’t just for guests! Have the guests sign a champagne bottle and present it to the bride-to-be so that she can bring home a fun gift covered with well wishes.
3. Play lawn games.
Showers are a perfect opportunity for wedding guests to get together to celebrate the bride-to-be. Keep in mind that this could be the first time that friends and family are meeting, so breaking the ice with some classic lawn games is a great way to ensure everyone is having a good time. If you want everyone to mingle, perhaps you should get physical with active party games like croquet, lawn darts, or badminton.
4. Try something new with the food you serve.
Are you tired of having to stop and grab more food on your way home from a bridal shower, because the only food available were simple finger-foods or bite-sized sandwiches? Nothing breaks the ice better than food, so why not make the shower all about exciting people’s palates? Consider filling up your menu with more satisfying items like a gourmet cheese platter with charcuterie and olives, a jazzed -up salad bar with grilled veggies or popular bar food like sliders and chicken tenders.
5. Set up a frozen yogurt buffet for dessert.
Forget cupcakes and other stale baked goods. If you want to liven up a bridal shower, you should rent a frozen yogurt machine and set out a buffet of fixings – including fresh fruit, syrups and sauces, candies, cereals and more – for a dessert that’s delicious to eat and fun to create.
