Did You Know?
The whole custom of presenting gifts to the young bride-to-be originated in the 1890s, and is most commonly practiced in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
Celebrate with the young bride-to-be, shower her with loads of love, and gifts that she can use. It's one day when the bride can let go of her inhibitions and pre-wedding stress, and just be herself. Besides, it could be the day, when the young bride gets to spend time with her closest buddies and family.

So to say, a bridal shower can mean not just fun but tons of memories too, not just for the bride but for everyone who becomes a part of it, including you―the bridesmaid.

This summer, it is time for you to let go of all inhibitions, and host the perfect bridal shower for the bride-to-be. Remember, it's all about celebrating the summer in style.

Very Berry

Very Berry


Isn't the summer all about juicy berries? You can choose from strawberries, cherries, blueberries, and all kinds of berries. You can serve berries and cream or sensuous strawberries dipped in chocolate. From strawberry punch to berry cakes, there's just so much you can do with a bunch of berries. As an activity at the shower, you can ask your guests to exchange recipes which include berries.

High Tea

High Tea


The whole idea behind a high tea is having a laid-back summer bonanza. Besides, as little girls, reminiscence the fun each of you had with dollhouses and tea parties. Set the mood with china teacups, cakes, cookies, and bite-sized eats. Do make sure to serve flavored tea, including iced tea, for those who like it cold. For the decor, you can use old teapots as centerpieces to adorn the tables. How about having tea-flavored ice cream for dessert?

Grilled Indulgence

Grilled Indulgence


Is that the aroma of barbecue wafting through the cool summer breeze? Oh yes, it surely is. Summer afternoons are incomplete without a barbecue session. Besides, why should boys be the only ones to enjoy a nice grilling session? Try out new kebabs, salads, and sauces to accompany your grilled meat. You can indulge in a number of outdoor games to keep your guests entertained while the grill sizzles.

Picnic Baskets

Picnic Baskets


Come summers, and it's time to bring out the pretty hats, scarves, and floral dresses. Not to forget, grab the huge picnic baskets and head to a picnic spot to relax under the shade of large tree. Make the summer of her life special with a country picnic themed bridal shower. You can use bicycles, picnic baskets, and watering cans to decorate the venue. The best you can do is actually plan a day trip with the girls to a place that will remind her of her teens or her budding romance. Keep the menu picnic style, with sandwiches, spreads, fresh fruits and the like. Your guests will definitely thank you for this day out in the country.

Beach Volleyball

Beach Volleyball


All I can think of is sun, sea, and sand. Lots of seafood too, and not to forget beach volleyball as well. With all the fun that comes with a trip to the beach, who can resist a beach themed bridal shower? For the menu, think of all the ways you can serve seafood. Shrimp cocktails, sushi, grilled fish, and PiƱa colada, makes for a perfect brunch. Use coconut shells, shells, scones, and stones to do up the venue.

Flutterby Butterfly

Flutterby Butterfly


Summer is the time for pretty little butterflies to venture out of their cocoons and flutter by. It's all about being light, flirty, and colorful with a butterfly-inspired theme. Get your gals to dress in colorful outfits and have a blast together. Alternately, you can keep the party outdoors to attract real butterflies to the floral decor.

Blooming Garden

Blooming Garden


During the summer, a garden in full bloom is a treat to the eyes. Use flowers to decorate the venue, as well as potted plants as centerpieces. Incorporate fresh blooms into the menu by using flowers to decorate the cake. You can welcome your guests by sprinkling rosewater on them, and give them rose-infused drink to complete the theme.

Festive Neon

Festive Neon


It's time to move away from dark colors and bring out fresh new colors. Greens, pinks, yellows, whites, and lavenders, it is the time to get fresh with neon-colored clothes, decoration, and food. Create a festive mood with all the neon colors.

Prickly Cacti

Prickly Cacti


Out of the ordinary, it's time to think of prickly cacti. Hot summers, dry, and arid conditions is the perfect time for the cactus to survive. You can use potted cacti to decorate the venue, and welcome your guests with cool aloe vera juice. You can also give away aloe vera planters as favors to thank your guests.

Twittering Birds

Twittering Birds


Come summers and the woods are alive with the sweet sound of birds. The two lovebirds can celebrate their love with a very birdy theme. Pretty birds perched on branches can be used to decorate the venue. You can vouch for a log cake with a pretty bird sitting atop to be the center of attention at the bridal shower. Popcorn and eats and treats sprinkled with seeds and nuts can be served to complete the bird theme. Do not forget to keep a bird splash at the venue to welcome your winged friends to stop by.

You can come up with your own unique and creative ideas to make your friend's day very special. Remember to keep the likes and dislikes of the bride-to-be in mind while planning the event.
