7 fall bridal shower ideas & recipes
the look of lace. There is a wedding on the horizon, so you know there is bound to be some lace involved somewhere. How about as an appetizer at the shower? Yep! That’s right! We created lacy wonton cups filled with a delectable artichoke and crab dip and they look as good as they taste. These bite-sized babies are way easier to make than you might think and they are an absolute showstopper to boot!
places everyone! A definite nod to old tradition, our DIY garter place cards are not only wedding appropriate but multi-functional! They act as personalized place cards so your guests can find their designated seat with ease. And they are made to wrap around a wine glass, so no one will lose their drink!
picture perfect. Personal photos can make a gathering, well, more personal. And since there is nothing more personal than getting married, sharing engagement photos of the happy couple with your shower guests will surely get them excited for the wedding. We took our photos and mounted them on scrapbook paper to create an unexpected napkin treatment—the perfect personal touch for an extra special occasion.
casual comfort. Picture it: the bride-to-be has endured the make-up application and the hair stylist and is about to put on her gorgeous yet constricting gown for her walk down the aisle. In short, your girl will have been uncomfortable for a better part of the day already and the party hasn’t even started yet! Give her a pair of these adorably adorned sneakers at her bridal shower so she can face the rest of her big day in casual comfort! She’ll be proud to show them off!
signature sipping. Have you noticed how trendy it is right now to serve a signature cocktail to guests as they arrive to an event like a shower or a reception? It’s such a fun idea and a great way to kick off the festivities too! Turn our light, festive blackberry lemon spritzer into the perfect signature cocktail with a creative moniker combining the names of the bride and groom. Put your thinking caps on!
salty or sweet? Contrary to popular belief, bridal shower games do NOT have to include clothespins. Seriously, they don’t. Put those babies down and print out our FREE “How well do you know the bride” shower game instead. It’s super easy to make, a sure way to get the whole gang involved and everyone will learn a little more about their favorite bride-to-be. Crank up the competition by offering up a prize to the winner!
