Bridal Shower Themes
Help the bride and groom get ready for their honeymoon vacation. In the invitation to the Bridal Shower tell the invited guests where the couple will be going on their honeymoon and ask them to bring gifts that they could use during their stay or while they travel. Fun gift ideas could be: Sunglasses, Luggage, Matching beach towels, Travel size items etc. Decorate the Bridal Shower to match where the couple will be going and serve food that would be found there.
Recipe Bridal Shower Theme
Bless the bride and groom with a box full of new recipes to try while they are married. In the invitation to the bridal shower send a 3 x 5 card and ask that they fill it out with their favorite recipe and bring it to the shower with them. Gather them together at the bridal shower and place them in a pretty recipe box for the bride to keep. You can also ask that they return the recipes before the shower and make some of the dishes to be sampled at the bridal shower.
For a fun bridal shower activity that will compliment the Recipe theme see "Three Things".
Kitchen Bridal Shower Theme
This is a great theme and will help stock the newlywed's kitchen. In the invitation let the invited guests know that the bridal shower will have a kitchen theme and ask them to bring gifts that reflect the theme. Kitchen appliances, Spices, Serving Bowls etc. are all great examples. Decorate with centerpieces made from kitchen utensils in tall containers wrapped with kitchen towels. As a fun game you could also ask each guest to bring a mystery item used in the kitchen ... then as they are opened with the regular gift guests have to guess what they are used for.
BBQ Bridal Shower Theme
This is a fun theme especially for Couples Showers. Grill dinner outside and ask each guest to bring a side dish with the recipe to give to the bride. For prizes give away barbeque sauces, bags of charcoal, barbeque utensils, barbeque mitts and aprons. Great idea for a casual bridal shower theme that lets people relax and get to know each other.
