Throw the bride-to-be a bed and bath bridal shower.
Your engaged friends are looking forward to making a home together -- so why not give them a head start with a bed and bath shower? Help them stock the bath and decorate the guest room -- or their room -- with everything they need to sleep (ahem) in peace.
Invitations: Send guests invitations for the bed and bath bridal shower so they know the theme. For a very girly bride-to-be, check out these Pink Bubbles Bed and Bath Bridal Shower Invitations. If she is more of a traditional bride, you may want to pick these Bed & Bath Wedding Shower Invitations. If the bride-to-be is a very modern lady, send out these Bed & Bath Bridal Shower Invitations. Make sure to include who is throwing the party, the place, date, time, how to RSVP, and where the bride is registered.
Decorations: Set the bed and bath theme by creating a relaxing environment. Place these Robin's Egg Bridal Shower Soap Centerpiece on each of the tables. You can also put a few Yankee Candle Lavender Vanilla Small Jar on each of the tables for a pretty scent. Finish off the table decorations by sprinkling Nirvana Mix White, Cream, Blush, and Red Rose Petals around the table.
Food: Keep the bed and bath theme going when you serve the food by creating a breakfast in bed feeling. Instead of having a place setting for each guest already set up, leave that spot empty. For a smaller shower, rent serving trays from a restaurant or hotel and bring guests their bunch on the tray. Place a Bud Vase with a flower in it on the tray. For a larger shower, simply serve the meal and reuse the tray. Along with the vase, have a Tropical Fruit Salad and Whole Grain Waffles with Strawberries and Whipped Cream.
Gift Ideas: Celebrate two becoming one with these gifts that both the bride-to-be and the groom will enjoy. At the of a long day, the newlyweds can slip on their cozy Mr. and Mrs. Bathrobes. A great smaller bath gift to give is the Mr. and Mrs. Bath Soap Set that they can share. If you would rather give them something for the bed, they might like these Together Mr. and Mrs. Pillowcases so they can dream of their future together.
Favors: For this theme, there are a lot of great favor ideas. Send guests off with one of the With This Ring Body Butter Favors, which you personalize with the couples names and wedding date. Another idea guests are sure to enjoy are the Seeded Paper Pillow Boxes with Soap. These favors can be customized in three ways by picking out the color of the pillow, the scent of the soap, and the printing on the label. For a sweet smelling treat, send guests away with a Lavender Sachet that they can place in their lingerie drawer.
