Bridal Shower Themes

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!

    Have you attended the linens and lace shower yet? I’m hosting a bedding shower on Sunday and looking for unique decorating ideas.
