Martha Stewart is, by all accounts, the queen of all party ideas. The key to throwing any party with Martha Stewart style is held in the thought that goes into making everything from the invitations to the treats served. With a little planning you can throw the perfect Martha Stewart Bridal Shower. See all our other Bridal Shower Party Ideas!
Getting the Word Out in Style
The first step in planning the perfect wedding shower is to pick the date and let everyone know. Creating your own invitations can be simple, elegant and budget friendly. Get a photograph of the happy couple and print it on cardstock paper. Cardstock is thicker and will hold the shape of the invitation better than regular copy paper. Next print the party information on velum which you can purchase at any craft store. Velum is opaque and will allow you to lay the information for the party over the photograph for a special touch. Simply punch two holes at the top and lace wired ribbon to hold the invitations together. You may also want to glue dried flowers or party favors to the top to make them extra special. Remember, the key to Martha Stewart style is making sure everything looks elegant.
Setting the Stage
You do not have to spend a lot of money to make it a special occasion. Cut fresh flowers from your garden and place them in several vases on the table. Votive candles can go a long way to setting the mood of your bridal shower. Placing candles throughout the space can give you the atmosphere you are looking for with little expense. If you do not have enough candle holders a votive in a wine glass can give your party a touch of elegance to any shower. For a special shower try keeping all the decorations in white in homage to the bride to be. White roses and lilies in simple vases throughout the space will be all you need to fill the space. Choose elegant decorations that Martha Stewart would show off in her home.
Simple Food Ideas
With all the planning involved in throwing a bridal shower it is a good idea to keep the food simple. A few well placed treats can set the stage for a perfect shower. Finger sandwiches will be quick and easy and your guests will be able to eat while they socialize. Place candied almonds in dishes around the party and you will be able to keep with the white theme. Decorative petites fours are a great alternative to a large cake. Place them on a pie stand and you can have a striking centerpiece to your table. Coconut macaroons on a simple platter will give you a touch of elegance while staying in your white theme. Give your guests a variety of finger foods allowing them to mingle while they eat.
Bridal Shower Games
When it comes to games for a bridal shower always to remember the bride must be kept the center of attention. For a fun twist videotape the groom answering a few questions and have the bride to be play the newlywed game. You can also have the guests create a scrapbook for the bride to place all of her future wedding photos.
With a little thought and preparation you will be able to give the bride a shower that she will remember always. An afternoon filled with food, fun and friends is all you will need to throw the perfect bridal shower.
