Bridal Shower Centerpiece
By Trish Burrell
Your bridal shower centerpiece is often the focal point of your party. It helps set the mood, whether it be soft and romantic, or bright and lively. So, put some extra thought into your choice. Answers to the following questions will help with your brainstorming.
How do I decide what to use?
The best place to start, is with your bridal shower theme. Try to come up with some creative centerpiece ideas related to your theme. For instance, if it's a kitchen shower, use a utensil holder filled with utensils, and tie a colorful bow around it. This can become a useful gift for the guest of honor to take home when the bridal shower is over.
What if I'm not having a theme?
Use your color scheme. This simple idea has a unifying effect, as it will blend with your other decorations.
What are some bridal shower centerpiece ideas?
Fresh flowers are always a great choice. They add color and aroma.
Silk flowers are inexpensive, and come in a variety of colors.
Candles come in many shapes and colors. Place three or more pillar candles of varying height on a charger plate, and surround with colored marbles. Floating candles in a decorative bowl can also be used.
A picture of the couple makes a lovely statement. You may also assemble a collage of pictures of them through the years.
Mylar balloons with a design on them, can be added to any centerpiece for a festive effect.
Fill a basket with theme-related items, and attach three or more helium balloons.
Many cakes are very ornate. You may want to use your cake as the bridal shower centerpiece.
Do I only need one centerpiece?
In general, you should have a centerpiece on each table you are using. You may need several, if it is a long table.
Your bridal shower centerpiece should help coordinate your room.
