To many people, winter symbolizes coldness and loss of vibrant colors. However, no matter if the bridal shower is taking place in winter or the theme is winter, you can plan a spectacular and memorable bridal shower. If you are planning a winter bridal shower, here some creative and innovative tips and ideas to create a special bridal shower party.
The first step towards a special and memorable bridal shower party begins with the invitations. You can send invitations containing a picture such as a snowflake, snowman or other winter themed items that will instantly remind the guests about winter. On the other hand, you can also send invitation cards shaped as a snowflake, snowman and so on. It would also be appropriate and courteous on your behalf if the invitations also contain information about the proper attire.
Once the invitations are on their way, you can start picking the appropriate location. Since it is winter, the location of the bridal shower party should be indoors. Depending on the size of the guest list, the appropriate venue can be a house, hall or hotel ballroom.
When the location has been decided, it is time to get into a festive mood and start decorating the venue. You can cover the floor with white linens, scarves and so on and can scatter plastic and metal snowflakes everywhere on the floor. This will set the tone and mood for the party and your guests will instantly feel the theme. You can also cover up everything with crisp white and silver-colored clothing. This will resemble the nature as it is during winter time. If you are thinking about incorporating a color-scheme, the appropriate colors to choose from are silver, white and blue. You can also use wreaths made of tree boughs, flowers and so on. Wreaths symbolize the circle of life. When it comes to decorating your tables, the options are vast. You can start by covering the tables and chairs with scarves and linens based on your chosen color-scheme. Silver charger plates should also be placed in the table. They serve to be both a decoration item and for eating.
If you want to take it one step further, you can glue silver-colored beads on the edges of your plate. This will amplify their beauty. Another beautiful decorating item that you can incorporate is the glass tree. They are available in many different shapes, sizes and colors. You can use one large glass tree as the bridal shower centerpiece or purchase several small ones and make them the centerpiece for each of the table. A common but beautiful decorating item is a glass vase. Also available in numerous shapes and sizes, they can be filled with flowers or decorated with silver ribbons, wreaths and glitter.
You can incorporate drinks based on the color scheme, bride’s preferences and so on. For instance, if the color-scheme is white then you can include drinks such as egg nog, white mojito and so on. With the white color scheme in mind, you should also serve non-alcoholic drinks like coconut water, lemonades and so on. Your food should include warm and hearty dishes. Dessert options are limitless and should be based on the bride’s preferences. However, a bridal shower cake is customary and should be on the list. The cake can be shaped as a snowflake, snowman or any other winter item.
With so many ideas and options available, you simply need a little imagination and creativity to create a bridal shower that will fail to escape the guest’s memories.
