Bridal Shower Inspiration: Sexy & Black

When it comes to bridal showers, I’m would never say no to a bevy of gifts ala Williams Sonoma. However, if you’re looking for a way to spice up the whole shower scene, why not throw a lingerie shower for the bride-to-be in your life? Here are some sexy and svelte ideas to get you going.

These images from Sweet Paul use black paper flowers as the basis for a simple, DIY friendly, yet totally stunning look. There are several how-to guides for these flowers, but check out this paper flower how-to from Hip Hostess, which is fairly similar to the ones shown. Use this element throughout your decor and food to keep the look. If you have the time, make enough for a garland, table runner, chair backs, escort cards, thank you gifts, etc…


Sweet Paul uses beautiful caramel colored food and cocktails, which keeps with the deep, rich look.




In case you were wondering, Ballard Designs has a black cake stand for just such an occasion:

I love the look of this black chalkboard, which will add a bit of rustic to your sexy shower. While you’re at it, you can pick up these velvet rings if you so like:


To go with the look, perhaps these paper flowers with vintage buttons might dress up an invite:


And you can’t forget the most important part…GIFTS:

  2. very elegant! 🙂 wonderful ideas.

  3. The paper flowers rock. My goodness that is creative.
