I’m going to a “Linens and Lace” bridal shower next month! The super-cute invitation had lace on it- I’d never heard of that theme! So of course I had to tell you guys about it and do the research on bridal shower themes and ideas.
My first instinct was that for a Linens and Lace shower, you could bring either linen or lingerie. I just assumed that would be the lace- haha! Not necessarily, however. This shower is generally for bedding and table linens. I will definitely report back on favors and decor, of course!
Another theme I researched that I thought was a great idea is a tea party shower. Tea is obviously served, along with a luncheon of finger sandwiches and petit fours. Check out my previous blog about the Alice and Wonderland theme for decor ideas. Give teas in cute tea cups and saucers for a useful favor.
“Stock the Bar” is becoming a popular shower theme, especially for couples’ showers. I’ve never personally been to one of these showers. This would be a great shower for a couple who loves to entertain. Guests would be encouraged to not only bring bar gifts from their registry, but also their favorite wine/liquor/mixer. This shower would be great at a wine bar in the evening, with fruit and cheese served.
A third shower I’ve heard about (but not yet attended) is the “Rock Around the Clock” theme. Each invitation sent is assigned an hour of the day; the guest is encouraged to bring a gift that would be used during that time. Has anyone been to one of these, and was it successful?
Let me know about fun showers you’ve been to/planned that were a hit!
