Bridal Shower Theme Ideas

Guest Author - Susan

Round-the-Clock Shower: On the invitation, guests are assigned an hour of the day (ex: 9:00am) and challenged to bring a gift appropriate to that hour (ex: coffee maker, alarm clock).

Kitchen Shower: All the household staples are welcome – gadgets, dish towels, spice rack, canisters, trivets, cookware. Party favors might include a wooden spoon or refrigerator magnets.

Entertainment Shower: Guests bring gifts for hobbies and entertainment, including theater, movie, or sports tickets,; videos or sporting equipment. Guests can also pool their resources for a big gift like a camcorder, barbeque or television.

Gourmet Shower: Do the bride and groom love to cook and entertain? Gather for a fabulous special meal and bring gift certificates for fine dining, cookbooks, a subscription to a cooking magazine, kitchen gadgets, china, glassware, espresso maker, or a gift certificate to a cooking course.

Handyman Shower: Get ready to work! At this service shower bring a hammer, nails, buckets of paint, and whatever is needed to spruce up the couple's house or apartment. Gifts might include tools, materials, a gift certificate to a hardware store, or the services of a professional painter, plumber, electrician or craftsman.

Bar Shower: Here's the chance to stock the couple's bar with glassware, tongs, ice bucket, corkscrew, napkins with silly messages, wine rack, fine wines or boutique beers.

Thanks-for-the-Memories Shower: A great party for close friends and family of the bride. Everyone is asked to bring old photographs of the bride from her childhood or teenage years and to write a poem or letter to her recalling the happy times they've spent together and good wishes for the future. As each guest shares a memory, the letters and photographs are placed in an heirloom scrapbook for the bride to keep.

Lingerie Shower: Pajamas, nightgowns, slippers, down pillows, bed linens, robe, bath bubbles, fragrances, slips, teddies, or any kind of lingerie or related items!

Holiday Shower: Homemade Christmas decorations and holiday stockings; red, white and blue linens and glassware or barbecue utensils for the Fourth of July; decorated paper mache eggs and moss-covered wreaths for Easter, confetti, candles and paper hats for New Year's Eve. The bride will end up with a year's worth of household decorations. Our Seasonal Cooking site has some great recipes that could be used to bring more excitement to your holiday-themed shower!

Gardening Shower: If the couple enjoys gardening, then gifts relating to the garden are perfect. Items range from tools to decorative accessories to plants and flowers.

Room of the House Shower: Assign each guest a room of the house. They will then bring a gift that is appropriate for that room.
