Love the feel of warm, white sand between your toes? If the bride and groom-to-be are beach fans, too, maybe a beach bridal shower for couples (or traditional bridal shower) is the way to go. Sunwashed colors, relaxing atmosphere and a cool beverage.
Let us help you with some beach bridal shower ideas. Begin with invitations for a beach bridal shower to set the tone for your party. Then choose beach and seashell decor to pull the theme through the event itself. Finally, serve your favorite tropical paradise food and colorful beach resort beverages. Perhaps your guest would be inspired to wear their beach attire or favorite hawaiian shirt? You can encourage this with a simple “tropical attire” or “casual beach attire” as the last line of your invitation.
Here are some finds to further the beach showers theme…. Fun place card holders also make great little sign-holders for your beverage table… lemonade, margaritas (margarita recipe), passion fruit punch.
Shell-theme tableware is not easy to find on the internet, but you will find tropical-theme or Hawaiian luau paper and plastic ware at most party supply stores. All you really need is lots of bright color… mixed tropical hues of red, cyan blue, orange, green. Going for authentic? Try coconut shell mugs!
If you are looking for some fun party games, you could use the “Survivor” party idea, breaking your guests into teams with matching bandanas and lei’s.
Party decorations could include a tiki bar, and hawaiian luau or tropical flower accents. Consider grass skirt table skirts for a festive look. Pineapples make nice centerpiece addition or decoration for your food table. The DIY Network has a great article on Carribean party decorating and food.
