From iconic blue hues to luxurious details, a Tiffany-themed bridal shower exudes luxury and class. Here are some fabulous ideas to help you plan an unforgettable Tiffany-inspired celebration.

Tiffany Bridal Shower Invitations

Set the tone for the bridal shower with invitations that reflect the iconic Tiffany blue color scheme and elegant aesthetic. Choose cardstock in shades of Tiffany blue and white, adorned with silver accents or faux diamond embellishments. Incorporate the iconic Tiffany & Co. logo or motifs such as ribbons, bows, and diamonds to instantly evoke the brand’s signature style. Elegant calligraphy and classic fonts add a touch of sophistication to the invitations, setting the stage for a glamorous celebration.

Tiffany Bridal Shower Decorations

Transform your venue into a luxurious Tiffany-inspired oasis with glamorous decorations that evoke the brand’s iconic image. Start by draping tables with crisp white tablecloths and adding accents of Tiffany blue through napkins, centerpieces, and chair sashes. Create stunning centerpieces using white roses or hydrangeas arranged in Tiffany blue vases or boxes. Incorporate elements such as faux diamond confetti, silver candle holders, and pearl strands to add a touch of opulence to the decor. Complete the look with elegant touches like Tiffany blue balloons, satin ribbons, and oversized diamond rings as photo props.

Tiffany Bridal Shower Dessert Table

Create a show-stopping dessert table that dazzles guests with delicious treats and glamorous decor. Feature a stunning Tiffany blue cake as the centerpiece, adorned with edible pearls, bows, or a fondant replica of the iconic Tiffany blue box. Surround the cake with an array of decadent desserts such as cupcakes, cookies, and chocolates, all beautifully decorated to match the Tiffany theme. Display the desserts on tiered stands and platters adorned with silver or gold accents, satin ribbons, and crystal embellishments for a luxurious and visually stunning presentation.

Tiffany Bridal Shower Food & Drinks

Treat guests to a sumptuous spread of delectable treats and beverages that reflect the elegance of the Tiffany brand. Serve an assortment of finger sandwiches, petit fours, and delicate pastries on tiered trays for an elegant touch. Offer a selection of gourmet teas, champagne, and signature cocktails served in Tiffany blue glassware or adorned with diamond-shaped stirrers. For dessert, indulge in a decadent Tiffany blue cake adorned with edible pearls, bows, or a fondant replica of the iconic Tiffany blue box.

Tiffany Bridal Shower Activities

This gorgeous bridal shower was planned by Charmed Events Group. The shower was filled with beautiful decorations and plenty of entertainment. It was the perfect party to celebrate a bride-to-be.

The seating area was stunning! Every guest received a delicious-looking red velvet cupcake with a personalized topper. Each cupcake was placed in a decorative wrapper and also included a sparkly gold topper to fit with the decor. The plates had a gorgeous rose gold edge and were paired with matching gold silverware. On each plate was a special thank you note that fit perfectly with the color scheme. A decorative white table cloth was covered with a long floral table runner. Gorgeous pink and white flower arrangments lined the entire center of the table.

The dessert area was equally stunning! Guests could choose from four different types of cake. The largest cake was in the middle and was covered with fresh berries. Guests could also choose strawberry cupcakes or lemon bars.

The background of the dessert area was simple but gorgeous. The entire backdrop was covered in light pink. The words “Cake and Frills” were displayed in large cursive lettering. Pink, gold, and blue bubbles framed the lettering perfectly.

Guests also had the opportunity to make their own flower bouquets. A sign with pink roses read “Let’s play with flowers.” Below the sign, white vases held a variety of fresh and colorful flowers to choose from.

A gray and white chevron couch in the corner made the perfect place for photo opportunities. The couch even included matching pink pillows.

Planning a bridal shower is a lot of fun but can feel like a lot of work, especially if you’ve never planned one before. Several details go into making the bride’s special day magical, and it can be daunting trying to keep track of everything – or even knowing where to begin!

Bridal Shower Planning Introduction

If you’re tasked with planning a bridal shower for a bride you love, don’t worry! Consider this your ultimate bridal shower planning guide, walking you through the whole process step by step. Keep this guide on hand through the entire planning process, from start to finish, and you’ll be just fine. It’ll be a piece of [wedding] cake!

Who Hosts a Bridal Shower?

Chances are if you’re reading this guide, it’s you!

On a serious note, bridal showers are traditionally planned and hosted by the maid (or matron) of honor, with some assistance from the rest of the wedding party. Parents and other relatives typically lend a hand as well, and will often bake treats, cook part of the meal, help decorate, and supply addresses for the guest list.

In modern times, it’s common and totally etiquette-friendly for anyone to be the host of a bridal shower. Whether you’re the maid of honor, mother of the bride, sister of the bride, a close friend, or just someone who cares deeply about the bride, the important thing is to show the bride some love!

Ultimate Bridal Shower Planning


Who to Invite to a Bridal Shower

The honored person organizing a bridal shower needs to assemble a guest list. Ask the bride or mother of the bride for a list of the “must-have” people she would like to attend her shower and get home addresses for the invitations (more on that later).

There’s no official limit to how many people “should” be invited, but the standard is usually 20-50 people in total. A point of etiquette: any guest invited to the bridal shower should be invited to the wedding, too. You can’t invite a guest to one but not the other! Once you have a final guest list, be sure to let the bride look it over to make sure no one is left out or was accidentally placed on the list when they shouldn’t have been.

Generally, you want to invite female relatives of the bride and groom, all women in the wedding party, and close female friends. At least, that’s how things are traditionally done! Nowadays, you don’t have to adhere to that strict gender rule, and close male friends are more than welcome to attend if the bride wants them to! Check with your bride to make sure everyone she wants to see is on your guest list.

Who to Invite to a Bridal Shower

When to Host a Bridal Shower

Typically, the bridal shower happens within two months and as late as 2 weeks before the wedding, depending on a few different factors. Location of the bride as compared to her guests, how big or small the guest list is, and even the season (think of inclement weather) can affect the timing of a bridal shower.

Be sure to chat with the bride to pick a date that works for her and the rest of her guests – particularly her family and other “priority guests.” In some cases, the bride is out-of-state, so you’ll need to coordinate the bridal shower with other trips and events.

While any time of day is acceptable, many bridal showers are held in the afternoon to provide guests with a delicious lunch and the bachelorette party in the evening. If you’re hoping to keep food costs low, schedule the shower for late afternoon and just offer light appetizers and snacks, plus some desserts! If you’re looking to shake things up a bit, brunch bridal showers are quickly gaining popularity – mimosas and yummy breakfast foods? It doesn’t get much better than that!

Where to Host a Bridal Shower

Once you know when the bridal shower will take place, you need to pick a venue or location. Bridal showers are often held at someone’s house, usually the maid of honor or the mother of the bride’s house, but it largely depends on how many people will be in attendance and the budget for the event.

Where to Host a Bridal Shower

Start with the big picture: is the bride out of state while most of the guests are in her hometown? Is she in the same area as her guests, while you’re further away? Pick a location that makes the most sense for everyone, but prioritize the bride’s needs. After the area is nailed down, you can start hunting for a good venue.

Any venue is fair game! You can rent out a banquet room in a restaurant, a wine tasting room (if you really want to get fancy), or even an art gallery. Just keep in mind your headcount and the bride’s interests! If she’s an outdoor adventurer, you could even consider hosting her shower in a state park. Not sure what the bride would like most? Just ask her! It’s better to check in and make sure she’ll enjoy the venue rather than take the chance of surprising her with a venue she’s not thrilled with.

Budget for a Bridal Shower

Okay, before you get any deeper into your planning, you need to figure out a budget! Traditionally (there’s that word again), the host is the one who pays for the shower, from food to favors. However, relatives and other members of the wedding party may offer to help pay for some things or provide some of the food to offset costs.

You should account for invitations, food and drinks for every guest, venue costs, décor, favors, and any photography or other vendor services you hire. But don’t be afraid to cut some corners to avoid breaking your bank account! Your bride will love her shower and will be grateful for your efforts no matter what.

There’s no set amount of money that you “should” spend on a bridal shower. It really depends on what the bride wants and what the host can afford. Don’t be afraid to get creative and come up with some budget-friendly solutions!

Choose a Theme for a Bridal Shower

Alright, you’re doing great! You’ve got the guest list figured out, you’ve got the where and when nailed down, and you’ve set a budget. Now we get to move on to the fun stuff!

The theme of a bridal shower is a great way to showcase the bride’s personality or something she loves. Or it’s just another way to sprinkle some fun into the day! Is the bride a coffee fanatic? Does she love the retro theme of the ‘50s? What about traveling? Or is there a simple theme, like country charm, that emulates her style? Get creative, and ask some of the other wedding party members what they think would be most appropriate for the bride!

Picking a theme can help guide all the other choices you need to make for the shower and tie everything together. Even if you don’t choose a full theme, picking some colors or mirroring the bride’s wedding colors can give your shower decorations a cohesive balance.

Invitations for a Bridal Shower

The first thing you want to handle after you pick a theme is the invitations for the bridal shower. Time is of the essence, so invitations are one of the first things you should address (pun intended).

Guests need as much notice as you can manage so that they have time to make arrangements to attend. You should plan to mail out the invitations at least four to six weeks before the shower. That means you should have the invitations designed, finalized, and ordered about two months before the shower’s date – whew!

When designing the invitations, make sure you include the date, time, location or venue, and any registry information you know. Also, make sure the invitations include the name of the host (or hosts) and a way for them to RSVP. Oh, and the name of the bride!

While E-vites are easier and more convenient, it’s still good etiquette to send actual paper invitations. However, if invites are taking up a large chunk of your budget, email invites or Facebook invites are acceptable in this day and age. Prioritize the bride’s wants, and your shower will be a hit!

Menu for a Bridal Shower

Now it’s time for the most delicious part of the planning process: planning the food! Whether you have the budget to hire a caterer or are making the food on your own, the food choices should complement the theme of the shower.

perfect Menu for a Bridal Shower

However, you can consider the bride’s favorites, too – it is her day, after all! If she likes simple food like PB&J, consider making tiny versions for appetizers! Does she love Mexican food? Consider adding tacos, chips and guac, or margaritas to the menu! The menu can be as creative as the theme; it’s one of the most memorable parts of the shower, so make it count!

When planning the menu, keep the time of the shower in mind; if it’s a brunch buffet, set up a coffee station, juice bar, or make-your-own-mimosa area! Then stock the food tables with plenty of croissants, danishes, donuts, fruit, and eggs. Is your in the late afternoon after lunch? Chips and snacks are all well and good, but consider adding something with a little more “oomph,” like small sandwiches or meat and cheese trays with bread and buns to make your own.

Try to accommodate any food restrictions, as well! When you send out your invites, it’s helpful to include a line where guests can indicate any allergies or dietary needs. That way, you’re prepared on the big day!

Décor for a Bridal Shower

This is where your theme or color scheme really comes to life! Some hosts opt for hiring an event planner to transform the shower’s venue, but plenty of others take matters into their own hands – it’s up to you and your budget! And just because you’re decorating everything yourself doesn’t mean you have to stick with the classic mylar balloons and streamers. Think outside the box for some fabulous and festive. 

Are you going for a tropical island theme? Find plenty of faux palm leaves and pineapples to dress up the tables! Going for a ‘50s vibe? Use old vinyl records to make centerpieces! Decorate the big things, but use the details of your décor to drive your theme home.

Games and Activities for a Bridal Shower

While you’re shopping around for decoration to match your theme, keep an eye out for games and perhaps little prizes for the winners of the games, too! Of course, you can include some of the classics like wedding mad libs, trivia about the bride, and bridal bingo, but it’s always fun to play at least one game that matches the shower’s theme! If you’re stumped, check out Etsy or Pinterest for inspiration.

Games and Activities for a Bridal Shower

It’s nice to get the games and activities done early on because it helps break the ice for guests who may not know each other yet. Plan for guests to eat, socialize, and greet the bride first, then start the games when there is a bit of a lull. It’s an excellent way to get your guests engaged, so they’re not sitting and staring at the bride the whole time. As wonderful as that is, everyone needs a break from basking in her bridal radiance!

Thank You Favors for a Bridal Shower

Last but far from the least is the thank you favors. The options are limitless; you just want to give the guests a little something to thank them for coming and showering the bride with gifts and love!

Popular options include yummy baked treats like cookies or boxes of candy, hand sanitizers or lotions, even personalized sunglasses to commemorate the special day! Again, try to stick with your shower theme when you plan out your favors. And if you don’t want to take the centerpieces home, send them with your guests as bonus favors!

Bridal shower planning doesn’t have to be overwhelming. As long as you keep the bride’s best interest at heart and this guide close by, your shower is sure to be a magnificent event!

Bright Tropical Themed Bridal Shower Party

Bright Tropical Themed Bridal Shower Tablescape

Warm and Bright Tropical Bridal Shower by K Fab Creations

Let’s face it – we could all use an island getaway right about now! Even without the pandemic, a little bit of beach therapy is never a bad thing! Well, the lucky guests of this tropical-themed bridal shower got just that, thanks to K Fab Creations.

Right from the entry point, K Fab Creations knocks it out of the park. As guests arrive, they are greeted with a bright, exciting sanitizing station. Now, sanitizing stations don’t sound bright or exciting, but this one definitely is! Vibrant colors of pink and green cover the table, where personalized bottles of hand sanitizer await each guest – even the sanitizer itself is pink!

sanitizer station spread love not germs

Face masks are provided as well, but they were specially made for this occasion, with a fresh, tropical design. The masks are adorable and help the guests feel like it’s part of the celebration! Plus, can you ask for a better party favor right now? The sanitizing station is topped with an acrylic sign saying, “Spread love not germs” – fitting for the occasion!

The acrylic sign holders make another appearance at the bar. I have to say – I love the reinvention of the acrylic sign holders. Using stickers instead of printing out plain white paper is so inventive! It’s a small detail, but it makes a world of difference in presentation. The champagne flutes at the bar come with gold pineapple-shaped stirring sticks that are so quirky and cute!

An air of island royalty permeates through the event space. Luscious arrangements of tropical flowers, palm leaves, and pineapples are peppered among the tables, making the guests feel like they’re genuinely on a lush island vacation. And the addition of frozen rosebuds to the glittering, gold champagne ice buckets? I would expect that level of sophistication at a five-star resort!

Polished gold-framed tables and chairs give the whole space a sense of island royalty. Each place setting has a gold, textured plate, reminiscent of the imprint of a seashell in the sand, with elegant gold silverware to match! The napkins lend a pop of tropical color to each setting, with a menu provided to give every guest exactly what they want.

The sweets and cake stands are spot-on, as well. The cake toppers match the floral arrangements throughout the space, and the ombre tropical color scheme was a perfect choice. And placing the cake on a palm leaf is a super cute way to give the cake stand some extra pizzazz! My favorite part, though, is the candy “oranges.” They’re actually candy apples made to look like fresh, juicy citrus fruits – genius! The sticks are made to look like bamboo shoots, adding to the illusion even more, and they’re given a polished look with the satin pink ribbon – which, of course, matches the color scheme perfectly!

Guests are given one last party favor before they go – a chocolate bar in a personalized wrapper! The wrappers are in keeping with the island theme with a fresh, tropical design and gold accents. The words “Carrie’s Bridal Shower” on the front of the wrapper makes sure the guests will never forget their island getaway!

Hosting Your Bridal Shower During COVID-19

Hosting Your Bridal Shower During COVID-19

Alright, Brides, let’s be honest – COVID-19 has thrown a huge monkey wrench into a lot of bridal shower plans for 2020, even into 2021. Across the country, federal guidelines strongly suggest no more than ten people should gather in one place. Most guest lists for a bridal shower range from 20 to 50 people – so what’s a Bride to do?

The easiest, most effective solution is to host a virtual wedding shower. You can use platforms like Zoom, Google Hangouts, or Skype to gather all of your friends and family together without putting anyone at risk! So before you start making those dreaded cancellation calls, here are some tips and ideas to make your virtual bridal shower a success.

Bridal Shower During COVID-19

Spread the Word

Reach out to your guests and let them know that they can still attend your shower, just from the comfort of their couch! You can use this as an opportunity to tell them which platform you will be using, so they can be sure to download the app, create an account, etc. ahead of time – not five minutes before the shower starts.

Virtual Bridal Shower Invitation


Have Your Guests Send Gifts or Cards to Your House Ahead of Time

There are plenty of options for sending gifts via snail mail or online. You may get some virtual surprises like gift cards to your favorite restaurants or boutique, or maybe a membership for a subscription box! Just be sure to share information with your guests like an email address for virtual gifts, your home address for physical gifts, and your registry for ideas.

Pick a Theme

Once the changes are made, and your guests are notified, it’s time to focus on your bridal shower’s theme. Maybe your original theme works for a virtual bridal shower, or perhaps you need to adapt it a bit. Take this time to figure out how you can really embrace the virtual aspect of your shower.

You could plan a cocktail hour theme where guests could bring their own cocktail creations and swap recipes with each other! Or maybe a virtual spa day sounds more like your speed. You can ask your guests to bring their favorite nail polish, face masks, or pampering products to the virtual call and share your beauty routines!

Make a Custom Snapchat Filter

Guests can take videos or pictures with the filter then post it to their social media pages. You can design your own filter in the app or purchase one that is custom-made for you on Etsy! While this may seem trivial, creating a custom Snapchat filter is a great way to capture everyone’s moments from the shower. It helps you to feel like everyone was truly together!

Bridal Shower Snapchat Geofilter


Games, Games, Games!

No party is complete without some fun games! In light of the pandemic, many game companies are releasing or expanding their virtual game platforms – perfect for your virtual bridal shower. One option is to create a custom game with TriviaMaker. A host can write trivia questions all about the happy couple, then broadcast their screen over video chat for all to see.

If you want something that’s already made and ready to play, you can go for these virtual bridal shower battle trivia game by ThinkGames.
