The Desserts

Petite finger foods are always a good option for parties, it’s easier for guests to just pick up what they want and go. Pastries, cookies, mini-cakes and cupcakes are all eligible desserts to have for the theme you’re going for.

The Accessories

Choose cute cake toppers, like the “hooray” in the photo above. You can stick these in the desserts themselves or in the flower arrangements. Getting ones that say “Mr. & Mrs.” or “hostess” is cute too!

The Decor

Coffee table books can be used for added decoration. Getting books that match the theme of your shower – in this case pink pastel ones – will definitely add a nice touch to the table.

The Arrangements

It’s always best to pick the bride’s wedding colors for the bridal shower arrangements. In the photo above, the theme was pastels (which are just stunning!).

Wine

Red, white, rose, there’s a wine for everybody. This is definitely a fun idea that can be completely customized based on the bridesmaids wine tastes, and through the bottle label. Depending on how many bridesmaids you plan on having in your bridal party, this can be an inexpensive but cherishable gift for all. It’s up to you how much to spend on the wine bottles, and instead of buying the labels, consider designing and printing your own!

This option is for the indecisive bride who can’t choose just one gift idea. We completely understand.. why choose one when you can have more than one?!
