Five bridal shower ideas that were once new and progressive but are now the norm. We simply MUST give credit to these genius ideas!
- Special Venues
- Finger Foods
Think about it. This may seem obvious but themed bridal showers have not always been the norm. Some smart lady out there decided to celebrate more than an engagement, she celebrated a hobby, a color, a lifestyle, and it blew up!
The first woman to host a bridal shower at a winery, a bowling alley or ice cream shop was one smart cookie! No cleaning required, minimal decorations needed, plenty of space, food and drink are prepared and everyone (including the hostess) can enjoy themselves.
As dreaded as they may be by some, bridal shower games are really a lifesaver. Not only do they give guests something to do, they promote socializing among people who may not know each other at all. In the end, everyone is better acquainted and feeling comfortable enough to have a good time.
Finger foods were created with intention: the intention to promote movement and mingling. A sit-down meal is too formal and stuffy for a celebration as casual as a bridal shower. Finger foods keep guests satisfied while allowing the party to stay lively and full of conversation.
Yep, we’re dedicating an entire section to these hand-held confections. A portable dessert with crumb-containing paper wrap, which can be found in any color, pattern or design to coordinate with your bridal shower theme? Genius!
