Wedding Shower Ideas
Planning a wedding shower doesn’t need to be overwhelming, thanks to all the great resources on the internet these days. A shower should have refreshments, an activity, and a favor; here’s an idea for one of each found on the web.
Mimosa Bar – Hosting a brunch time shower? Set up a mimosa bar. Everyone loves some bubbly, and by setting up a serve-yourself bar, guests can serve themselves – freeing you up for other hosting duties. Small Shop shows some great inspiration for your mimosa bar.
Decorate a Mug – Why not have each guest decorate a mug for the couple’s kitchen? Purchase plain mugs and a porcelain pin and ask each guest to draw on one. Artistic guests can make their own designs, but even the non-artsy folks can do something simple such as the couple’s last initial, or a simple pattern. Wit & Whistle shows you the details on how to make these mugs.
Guest Favor Boxes – Shower guests took time out of their busy schedule to toast the bride, so to say thank you, send them home with a favor box filled with treats. Take favor boxes from plain to spectacular by adding some washi tape, as seen here on Martha Stewart’s website. Washi tape can be found in just about every color and with vivid patterns, so do an internet search and you are bound to find one that fits your shower color scheme. Purchase favor boxes here.
Now you are ready to be the bridal shower hostess with the mostess!
