“They brought the tropics and beach theme to Philadelphia!”
My Maid of Honor and bridesmaids did an incredible job with my bridal shower – BOY DID THEY EVER. We’re talking mimosa bar, pineapples as centerpieces, a Polaroid camera station, and it doesn’t end there.
Will you be throwing a bridal shower soon or in the near future? Do you and the bride have a love for all things T R O P I C A L? My MOH has the hookup.
I’ll start at the beginning – the first thing you see walking into the backyard (tysm to my future mother-in-law for lending her home for this ) is the MIMOSA BAR. Who doesn’t love a good boozy & brunchy bridal shower? Answer: nobody. So get your drank on and don’t forget some sort of alcohol.
AND THEN – all things white! (obvi). The white balloons, “bride” letters, and table linen made for a nice crisp white background, with the pineapple centerpieces and black and white photos standing out as accents.
Can we talk about the Polaroid station? This was ADORABLE. The photos were printed within seconds and make for a great keepsake for your mama, mother-in-law, aunt, cousins, friends – EVERYONE basically. An affordable option is to definitely include print-outs of the couple. They’re fun to walk around looking at and can be conversation starters!
After that – games! All women come to the bridal shower expecting to play some sort of trivia proving they know the bride or the groom better than anyone else. Bring on the competition as you’ll have some relatives ready to compete.
A super special thank you goes out to my Maid of Honor, bridesmaids, mother-in-law, and my own mamma for all that went into this gorgeous day. I will never forget it and it was incredible to be surrounded by so much love – and have all of my favorite people in one location.
Want to throw a tropical-themed bridal shower? Here were my favorite parts:
- pineapple centerpieces (which everyone can take home – YUM)
- MIMOSA BAR – because, well… alcohol
- GAMES for everyone to show how much they know the bride/couple
- the Polaroid station! easy and quick keepsake to take home so you remember the shower!
