Something Blue Bridal Shower Ideas

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed

A bridal shower is a magical time of celebrating a bride marrying her one true love, and what better way to make this even memorable than to give it a classic and romantically traditional theme. The most well-known saying regarding nuptials is “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” and most brides still incorporate this tradition into their wedding day. Send out those Tiffany blue invitations and get the bride and all her guests excited for a classically delightful bridal shower!

Something Blue Decors

For decorations, posing up signs and chalkboards displaying the age-old saying “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!” is a fun and happy way to get everyone on board with the awesome party motif. Have accents displayed that are heirlooms from the bride or groom’s parents or grandparents to represent “something old” and post up a clothesline of photos of the bride and groom as “something new”. Get the guests involved by asking them to bring one of each of the sayings: old, new, borrowed, and blue for the bride to keep! Incorporate plenty of soft, bridal blues into the décor with tablecloths, runners, backdrops, and plenty of flowery garland and balloons. White flowers make great floral centerpieces, while burlap and jewels bring in whimsical and elegant feel to the party space.

Something Blue Food

For food, you can really be creative here. From beautifully adorned desserts that look almost too pretty to eat to classic family recipes, you can create a setup that the bride and all of her guests are taken by. The bridal shower cake can be a tiered blue one or it can be a sheet cake with a screened sugar photo of the bride and her mother and grandmother. Serve desserts on white porcelain platters with food labels that boast an old timey cursive font. Frosted blue cupcakes with pearl accents, apothecary jars full of Jordan almonds, and towers of pastel hued macaroons are gorgeous additions for the sweet tooth. The perfect beverage station could consist of mimosas and pink lemonade, while saltier fares could range from tea sandwiches to old recipes from generations past.

Game & Favor Ideas

Party games can also be delightfully diverse, with old games like Bridal Bingo or newer games with hilarious Truth or Dare for the bride. You can even have a storytime in which each guests shares an old memory of herself and the bride. Party favors can be given as prizes for these games and activities, or you can make burlap goodie bags full of gourmet treats. You can even fill a party favor box full of gifts that represent each of the four: old, new, borrowed, and blue. The guests and bride are sure to remember this bridal shower forever.
