One of the many pre-wedding events to set the tone for your day of celebration, your bridal shower is a unique opportunity to showcase your chosen wedding style, or perhaps, a more playful version of your big day. Whether you're envisioning yours as a festive brunch, or even a relaxing spa-themed fête, we have plenty of expert ideas to get you inspired. Check out a few of them below.

Utilize functional décor.


To add flair to this festive bridal luncheon, Jacin Fitzgerald, owner of Jacin Fitzgerald Events, used flower crowns as the focus for the tablescape's decor. “For this beautiful bridal shower, we put one at each place setting affixed with a name card to help guests find their seats,” she says.

Encourage effortlessness.


For a garden-themed affair, use farm-to-table florals—as well as other organic elements of décor—to create an effortless feel. “To generate a magical ‘secret garden’ ambiance for your bridal shower, create centerpieces that appear to be growing right out of the table," suggests Christina Baxter, owner of Cibi Events. "Incorporate wild ferns, ivy, and forest flowers such as fairy slippers and foxgloves for a fairytale setting."

Embrace the outdoors.


When hosting a bridal shower during warm weather months, utilizing your outdoor environment for a seasonal affair can help define your overall theme. Kelly McLeskey-Dolata, owner and creative director of A Savvy Event, opted for light linens and fresh florals when decorating this stunning display. “Natural wood elements and greenery tied-in with the stunning landscape of this bridal shower venue,” she says.

Go boho


A boho design scheme is a great outline for creating an event that is both relaxed and chic. “Accent colors of burgundy and emerald green were used to offset materials like lace and white-washed wood,” says Erin Sprinkel, co-founder of Sterling Social. “A champagne set-up with festive glassware proved a great alternative to a traditional bar."

Think interactive.


Incorporating activities—like a bouquet-making class—into the agenda for your shower is a great way to get your guests involved in the festivities of your event. “A floral-themed activity like this one, is a perfect substitute for a traditional brunch or sit-down dinner,” says Meredith Waga Perez, founder of Belle Fleur.

Stage collaborative stations.


If you don’t want to commit to a full day of a themed-activities, interactive stations like this petal bar make an ideal resource for whimsy and décor. "What better way to shower a bride than with the prettiest petals in her color palette?” says Jennifer Stiebel, founder of Soco Events. “I love to add calligraphy bags for the perfect take-home touch."

Opt for neutral tones.


If you are looking to design a space that doesn’t adhere to a specific theme choose a neutral color palette. “Simple white balloons set atop this dessert display played into this French-inspired affair,” says Tracy Taylor Ward, owner of Tracy Taylor Ward Design.

Incorporate day-of traditions


“In the spirit of tradition and good luck on your big day, be sure to decorate with something borrowed and something blue!” says Bailey Leitch, event sales coordinator at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards. Whether it’s heirloom china or your best friend’s table runner, the sentiment will result in endless décor possibilities. “It will add a sweet touch and become a great conversation starter for your guests,” Leitch adds.
