Bridal showers are beautiful events where all sorts of people who have connections to the bride come together under one roof for the purposes of supporting the bride and showering her with love.
If you’ve been in attendance at a bridal shower, you’ve likely seen some that are thoughtfully and beautifully designed without even realizing all the work that goes into making it so stunning. If you’re now on the opposite side of things and are scrambling to create your own beautiful bridal shower, think through these key areas to decorate the space and make it feel cohesive.
Aside from the outside of the building, the first thing that guests will see is the entryway to the party. There are many themed, fun ways to decorate the entryway, such as to fill it with a balloon arch, a wood arch covered in flowers, or some other themed gateway that ushers you into the space. First impressions are important, so don’t forget to put the effort into designing the entryway so that it fits in with the rest of the party’s scheme!
One of the key areas of a bridal shower is where the bride-to-be sits to open her gifts. You can decorate this space with a comfortable chair, balloons, a backdrop, and other elements that will create a stunning backdrop and scene for all the photos that will be taken. This is going to be a focal point for many of the guests and the site of many photos, so it’s vital to think about this space being both beautiful and practical.
Teardrops and Fans
Whether you’re looking to decorate the ceiling, walls, or both, you can use honeycomb teardrops and fans in these areas to add bursts of color and texture. Both fans and teardrops come in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors, so no matter what color scheme or style you’re creating, you can find these items in your desired palette.
Since much of the time at the shower is spent sitting at tables, eating, and enjoying one another’s company, it makes sense to decorate with tablecloths that fit in with the rest of the decor. Whether you choose an ornately designed tablecloth or a simple solid colored one, you can find one that fits into the color scheme and is constructed well enough to look as classy as the rest of the decor.
Don’t underestimate the power of the napkins, plates, and drinkware! These are elements that everyone at the party will look at and interact with, so look for plates that match the color scheme and style of the rest of the shower. Oftentimes when you’re looking for plates, drinkware, and napkins that match, you can find them all at the same shop. How convenient is that!
The favors are another element that each of the shower guests will interact with, and unlike the others, the guest will even take these home. There are many themes and aesthetics for bridal showers, so there are just as many favors out there to choose from. One adorable option is a floral teapot favor,
Putting together a fully themed, decorated bridal shower can be a daunting task, which is why many people look into full party kits. The wonderful thing about buying a kit is that everything is already in the same theme as well as color scheme, so you don’t have to go hunting for matching components. Many kits like this floral brunch party kit and the geometric floral bridal shower kit will include signs and banners that fit with the theme. And again, if you’re looking for other elements made by the same designer, look at the shop as a whole for other items that may be in the same theme.
There are many parts of a bridal shower to consider when it comes to decorating, but at the end of the day, there are plenty of options out there for themes, colors, and styles, so when you create your bridal shower, you can design one that truly fits the bride-to-be’s personal style and create a space where everyone has a great time.
