Whether you’re decorating your own shower or you’re decorating one for a friend, here are a few simple tips for sprucing up a wedding shower occasion.
No matter how large or small of a wedding shower you plan on hosting, there are plenty of ways to spruce up your wedding shower decor to transform it from a plain occasion to a fabulous celebration. Sprucing up your wedding shower decor starts with paying attention to the little details. Even the smallest accents can make a big difference, especially when those details are creative and unique to your personality.
Regardless of your budget or how short you are on time, any of the following tips will help you enhance your wedding shower decor:
Choose stylish wedding shower favors to match your theme—Wedding shower favors are some of the smallest details found at a shower, but they are also some of the most important. They have the potential to make a big impact, and they give you a touch of pretty decor while gifting your guests at the same time. Choose favors that are chic and stylish but that complement your existing decor theme as well. Even better, order favors that can be personalized with text or graphics of your choice to give them a special touch.
Personalize your place settings—Speaking of personalization, try personalizing your place settings in other ways to spruce up your wedding shower decor. For example, consider dressing up your tables with themed dishes or tableware to match your shower color schemes and designs, and top it off by placing individual mix CDs next to each plate. You can compile a list of your favorite songs and decorate the CD jewel cases to match your decor.
Use creative floral arrangements—Flowers can be expensive, and it’s definitely not necessary to spend a fortune on them when there will already be plenty of beautiful arrangements at the actual wedding, but investing in a few arrangements for the shower is a great way to enhance the event’s ambience. These arrangements don’t have to be chock full of classic roses or tulips, either. Try getting creative and opt for making your own silk arrangements, or order edible fruit arrangements from your local caterer or gift shop. This is another great way to spruce up your wedding shower decor.
