When it rains.... it Bridal showers

One of the most important events when I was wedding planning was my shower.
I was looking forward to this party with my close friends and family just as much as the big day.
My cousin and aunt pulled off a wonderful party for me.
I still love looking at shower ideas online even though the wedding is over.
 There are so many fun girly things you can incorporate for the bride's special party.

Here are some of my favorites:

Mad Men

Serve up the Tom Collins and Manhattans strong.



Guests can  dress in period attire aka cocktail or house dresses



Include fun foods like deviled eggs, layered jello, deviled ham sandwiches



Great Favor Idea:
Along with the initiations include a blank recipe card for guests to fill out with their favorite dish.
 Have a vintage recipe box out to file the cards away in when the party starts.
Then give it to the bride as a fun keepsake with all her friends and family's recipes to start her new life with!


*Extra Credit: Cute Props for a Polaroid photo shoot!



Kitsch



Basically anything over the top and tacky goes.


Sweet vintage floral prints
( Think grandma's table cloth, but not the lace one)

Tacky bridesmaids favors

Anything that lights up, has glitter, is Tiki themed or has some kind of food product on it.


Your food options:
Hostess treats,lil smokies, cheese on toothpicks and doughnuts

Cute favor for guests!

Paris:





Macaroons are a must

Ohh LaLa



Pink, Gold & Girly


Sweet and perfect for your virgin bride to be!


With all the shabby chic decor around today, this theme is super easy to pull off!


Don't forget the cake!

Love the mad men theme idea. Wouldn't that be perfect for a certain Fior?
