April Showers

We all know the phrase “April showers bring May flowers.” Well, we are getting excited about a few bridal showers coming up. Spring reminds us of new beginnings and feeling fresh and new. So we thought we would share a few of our favorite April showers themes!

{1} Kate Spade: Luxury brand themes have been so popular lately: Tiffany’s, Chanel, and Kate Spade to name a couple. Make your bride feel like a princess with all the sparkle that comes with these themes. For Kate Spade try blocky textures, like this black and white striped ribbon, paired with bright colors, like the hot pink napkins and bright green flowers mixed in with the shades of pink.

{2} Travel: You can do so much with a travel theme: Traveling from Miss to Mrs, Love Makes the World Go Around, An Adventure Awaits, Her Greatest Adventure, etc. Dig out some old maps for the decor. A vintage suitcase makes a perfect card box. A “luggage drop off” sign for the gift table is funny and cute. You can even make the games and favors travel themed.

{3} 60s Beach: Go retro with a shower at a beach or pool. Upon arrival, give everyone a lei to wear for the day. Bright colors and retro bathing suits are a must. Beach balls and other pool toys only add to the fun. Decorate with surfboards and finish the night off with an awesome bonfire.

{4} Tea Party: This is another theme that works great with soft, pastel colors. If the bride is a tea lover, she will flip over this idea! Offer traditional tea time snacks for the food: finger sandwiches, crumpets, croissants, cookies, biscotti, etc. For extra pizzazz, have a make your own tea bar for the favors. Guests can mix the loose leaf, dry ingredients together in a bag and take it home for their next cup of tea. Mis-matching china gives it a delicate and modern feel.

{5} Wine: If the bride is a wine lover, host a wine tasting shower! You can decorate with wine crates and barrels. Give the guests score cards for the various wines they taste. Wine charms can be the favors. For an activity, provide plain wine glasses and paint for guests to decorate their own wine glass. Provide cheese and chocolate pairings for the wine and maybe have some hearty food choices so no one gets too drunk!
