Top 10 Tropical Bridal Shower Ideas....
When you think tropical - bright colors, beautiful flowers, warmth, and relaxation come to mind. Use all those aspects when planning the shower. Brightly colored decorations, a bountiful flower bouquet, sunshine, and a calming atmosphere. This would be a perfect theme for an outdoor shower but if weather does not permit - set up an island oasis indoors!
Here is a little inspiration and Our Top 10 Ideas for a Truly Tropical Shower...
#1) Clue all the guests in on theme by sending them a tropical themed invitation. This invitation comes from Wedding Paper Divas Wedding Invitations & Bridal Shower Invitations . They offer many fun invitation choices!
#2) For centerpieces; arrange colorful flowers in vases, incorporate sand, seashells, and tropical fruit too. It's always nice to personalize the centerpiece by adding initials or a picture.
#3) For decorations - string flower (fake or real) garlands around the room. Make your own flower garland by gluing
fake flowers to a piece of string or ribbon. Paper lanterns are another great way to decorate - they give it an island feel.
#4) Little drink umbrellas are a "must have" at a tropical bridal shower. Use them to seat guests, label food, or to simply garnish a drink.
#5) For favors, send the guests home with flip-flops, a tropical candle, beach themed candy or soap, lotions, or even the bride-to-be's favorite margarita mix to go.
#6) Potted tropical plants add another fun feel to the party. Display them on tables, use them to label different food dishes, or hand them out as favors.
#7) For food - serve up some teriyaki chicken skewers, fruit kabobs, pulled pork sandwiches or these amazing shrimp lollipops with pineapple chili dipping sauce (pictured above). Get the recipe
#8) Fruity, fun cocktails are a necessity at a tropical bridal shower. Margaritas, pina coladas, mai tais - serve them straight out of a pineapple or coconut for extra pizazz! Make sure to serve a virgin version of the drink to accomodate the non-drinkers.
#9) Pineapple upside down cake, key lime pie, fruit sorbets are all great dessert choices. Anything fruity will do!
#10) A fun game idea - do the limbo! The person who gets down the lowest wins a prize. Don't forget the limbo music to get everyone in the mood!
Now you are set to host an unforgettable tropical shower for the bride-to-be. Don't forget to relax and have fun while doing it.
