Bridal Shower Decorations
By Trish Burrell
Your bridal shower decorations can be simple or elaborate depending on the atmosphere you are trying to create.
So, picture what you would like the room to look like. Are you having a small intimate party, or a large fun-filled one?
Giving some thought to your wedding shower decorations will help you achieve the perfect look.
If you are having a theme, decorate with that in mind. Choose appropiate props and colors. Party stores have a wide variety of items. Take a look ahead of time, to help with your plans.
If you're not a having a theme, choose a color scheme. These may be the bridal colors, or the brides favorite colors. Choosing three shades of the same color creates a very unified look. Look again, to the mood you're trying to create. Soft colors will convey a peaceful, romantic look, while bright colors are more dramatic.
In most cases, you'll want to have three types of decorations: wall and/or ceiling, floor, and table. Let's take a look at some ideas for each:
Wall and/or ceiling will give an overall effect. Streamers, banners, draped fabric or tulle, swagged silk flowers, and balloons are just some of the items you can use.
Floor items spread throughout the room are used for visual effect and color. Plants, large baskets, balloons, and theme props are some suggestions.
Table decorations are your centerpiece, and place settings. Flowers in season, candles, and balloons are often good choices. If you're having a buffet table, you may want to add some touches of color around the food. This could be single flowers, or colored confetti.
Have fun with your bridal shower decorations. Keep to what you think the bride-to-be would like, and you can't go wrong.
