Finding decorations for a bridal shower opens a world of possibilities. You need to decide on the theme and then the color scheme. Some decorating ideas for a bridal shower include things like tableware and favors.
If the bride will be following a particular theme for her wedding, your decorating should come easy. Otherwise there are several ideas you can try.
If the bride isn't having a theme for her wedding, you probably want to go with traditional bridal shower decorations. Allow helium filled white and silver balloons to drift towards the ceiling. If you'll be decorating in the colors of the bridal party, do get balloons in those colors as well. Balloons with a pearl sheen add a touch of elegance.
Drape tables and chairs in the linens and throws dyed the bride's chosen colors. If colored linens aren't available, cover in lace. You can find yards of satins, silks and laces at your local fabric store.( Ask for discounted remnants to save money). If you'll be using white tablecloths, accent with colored napkins and tableware. Place matching favors at each plate.
If balloons aren't enough, feel free to drape fabric over the walls as bunting or implement crepe paper streamers. Just remember, there's such a thing as too much.
If the bride will be having a beach wedding, you'll want to use beach bridal shower decorations. Planning a beach bridal shower is easy. Decorate with sea shells and tropical flowers. Use the colors of the ocean for your balloons and accents and hand out lei's to all of the guests so they'll blend in.
Pamper the bride like the princess she is! Decorate the shower area with lots of luxurious throw pillows and fabrics. Offer her a tiara and lead her to a chair covered in satin or velvet.
