Always a bridesmaid never a bride? Don’t worry. You can indulge your wedding fantasies with your plans for a stunning bridal shower. Here’s a collection of ideas for a sprightly spring shower.
Westwillow is an Etsy find that I am completely drooling over. Their invites are custom ordered and perfect for someone hoping to find a unique invite option at a great price. I love these ones for a spring shower.
Bridal shower food, normally made up of vegetables, dips and mini sandwiches, can take on a sophisticated air with these pretty treats below. Martha Stewart’s new web article, 50 Good Things to Eat at a Wedding has several great suggestions and recipes. I’m not sure I can realistically envision these mini pieces of extravagance served at a 200 person wedding, which is why I think they are perfect for a shower.
Drinks…pretty colors, pretty glasses. Done deal! **Easy tip: if you want to keep your drinks icy cold, but want to pre-pour them for guests’ arrival, rather than add ice to your glasses, add frozen fruit. It will keep the drinks nice and chilly without watering down the flavor. Photo and recipes click here: Martha Stewart.
These tags are an absolutely adorable way to dress up cupcakes. Lauren Makes on Etsy sells 24 of these tags for only $15. She also offers custom options which would make your dessert that much more thoughtful.
For favors, CasaSugar found these totally adorable tins on Etsy, and I think that if you use these, it won’t matter what you put in them! CasaSugar suggests flower seeds, small decorative soaps or chocolates. I think even pistachio nuts or fancy tea would do the trick. The seller, GamiWorks, offers a collection of home items and jewelry as well, so you can stock up while you’re there. The tins are $22.50 for 10.
