How to Throw a Garden Party Bridal Shower


It’s no wonder “wedding season” happens in the spring—the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the weather is starting to warm up after a long winter. So take advantage of all the season has to offer with a garden party bridal shower theme. Here are a few of our tips for throwing the perfect garden party soiree.

1. Enjoy the outdoors

What better setting for a garden party than in the garden? If the weather permits, host the party outside on a patio, in a park, or in a botanical garden.

2. Savor the flavors

The ideal garden party menu celebrates freshly grown ingredients. Think fruity and floral. Try this Blushing Bride Moscato Lemonade with blueberries and raspberries. Garnish drinks with fresh rosemary or lavender. Opt for lighter, citrusy flavors like lemon cupcakes.

3. Let love grow

Live succulents make chic thank-you gifts your garden party guests will surely enjoy taking home with them. Plant succulents in Chinet® Cut Crystal® 9 oz. tumblers and top with a “Thank You” message. Get the full instructions here.

4. Make pretty place settings

Fancy up your tablescape with pretty details fit for the occasion. Slide a charger or paper doily underneath a Chinet® Cut Crystal® dinner plate and wrap Chinet® Cut Crystal® cutlery with delicate lace for a feminine, dressed-up look.

5. Set the stage for photos

Create a DIY photo booth by hanging colored streamers and flowers that coordinate with the party’s theme. Bridal-themed signage or Mylar balloons add an extra touch.
