How to Use Flowers in Your Bridal Shower

UntitledSpring is here, and with it comes wedding shower season as brides look forward to their early summer weddings. If you are the maid of honor, or simply a friend looking to support a soon-to-be bride, you may be the one responsible for planning the shower. Here are some tips to help make it a memorable experience for her, and a beautiful event for all who attend.

Throw a Garden Party

A garden party bridal shower is an excellent option. Not only can you shower the bride with gifts, but you can easily plan the shower. With a garden themed party, your main decor, whether you have the party inside or out, is flowers, and Gordon Boswell is ready to help.

Start with the tables. You will want an ample number of flowers gracing each table at the shower to create the feeling of being in a beautiful garden. Then, add some larger arrangements on the food table and a few decorative chairs around the space. The more flowers you include, the more garden-like your venue will feel. If you can have the shower outdoors, include a trellis with flowers to add to the overall look of the space and create a garden feel.

Create Floral Art

It’s not just the florists that can get in on the floral artwork for the party. In addition to the centerpieces and other decor you showcase at the shower, ask your florist if you can have a selection of cut, but not arranged, flowers. Then, set them out for your guests to make arrangements, floral crowns, necklaces and more. The creativity will surprise you when you give guests the chance to shine.

Give Floral Gifts

At the end of the shower, say “thank you” to the guests with a floral-themed gift. Talk to your florist about giving you a bloom of a flower that you can tie to a packet or tin of seeds. Your guests can take the garden home with them and plant something in memory of the bride and the party you threw.
