I attended a bridal shower this past weekend and the details the bridesmaids pulled together were adorable. Monogrammed favors, tea-cups for the guests, and delicious bite-size treats. It inspired me to pull together something for the bride who loves pink…and things that sparkle!
Kitchen/Chef Themed Bridal Shower
Druid Hills Golf Club – Atlanta, GA
Bridal Showers should always carry a theme, whether prominent or underlying, that expresses an interest of the bride. The shower doesn’t always have to be a huge affair either, because at the end of the day it’s all about celebrating the bride-to-be. This is one of my favorite ideas, because as newlyweds one of the things you get excited about is all of the fun things for the kitchen you put on your wedding registry!
How to Do this Idea:
- Each guest had to guess spices that were placed in small jars with numbers around a table
- Guests contribute a favorite recipe to a recipe box
- The guestbook is a cookbook where the guests sign next to their favorite dish
- Favors are kitchen timers, or something similar that is kitchen/chef themed
Jihan Cerda, of jihan cerda photography, was the maid of honor in her best friends wedding. She pulled together, along with Pineapple Planet, an adorable backyard bridal shower two weeks before the big day. We love the personal details, including pictures of the bride and groom at each table, a lounge area for opening presents, and food stamped with hearts. Thanks ladies for sharing this special day with us!
I think that bridal showers are a lot of fun to decorate. It’s the one piece of the pre-wedding fun that can be completely girly (because it is all about the bride!). To get this “ticked pink” bridal shower look, you often don’t have to go further than your own cupboards or garages. Discuss with other bridesmaids, neighbors, and friends and bring together an eclectic, but cohesive, look with china, crystal, and decor accents (like pillows, cupboards, and old rustic chairs).
