"Top 10 Winter Bridal Shower Decor and Planning Ideas"

#1 Winter theme ideas - {Love Birds} Decorate with miniature nests, birds and feathers. If the Christmas tree is up - this theme would compliment it perfectly! {Perfect Pair} Make it a "pear" themed shower. Bowls of pears on tabletops, hand out ripe pears for favors. {Something Blue} Blue, silver and white color combinations scream winter! Add some snowflakes for extra flair.

#2 Sending invitations out early is a must for a bridal shower held in the winter. Many people have holiday parties already scheduled so get the invites out 5 to 6 weeks in advance.

#3 Festive winter color schemes include:



#4 Winter centerpieces should be easy. Poinsettias, amaryllis, holly, topiaries, or even some branches from your yard - spary paint them white or silver and place them in a vase. Ball ornaments, cranberries, or even pinecones in vases also make great, affordable centerpieces.

#5 Use garlands in place of streamers. Link paper strips together to make a classic garland or opt for a popcorn and cranberry one. Add the phrase "Best Wishes" to the garland to make it extra special.

#6 For drinks, consider serving hot chocolate (spiked if you'd like), egg nog, hot buttered rum, and the classic apple cider garnished with a cinnamon stick.

#7 When it comes to food in the winter - comfort food comes to mind. Mac n' cheese, chili, potpies...but think mini versions - serve in shot glasses or make appetizer sized portions. Fondue is also a great winter food option.

#8 Scrumptious wintry desserts are next on the list! Try red velvet cake or cupcakes, cupcakes with a festive accent on top, pecan pie, rum cake, and cheescake are all crowd pleasers.

#9 Stick to the traditional bridal shower games but maybe cut the paper into a mitten or snowflake shape and add some glitter. For prizes hand out poinsettias or whatever you chose for the centerpiece.

#10 Favor time! Packaged peanut brittle, peppermint bark or hot cocoa make excellent winter favors. Mini snowglobes, tree seedlings, and fruit are fun options too!

No matter the season, make sure to make the shower all about the bride-to-be and you will have a successful shower. Hope you are now filled with wintry goodness to plan that shower. Happy planning!
