Fall is one of the best times a year to host a bridal shower. In addition to the great weather and flavors, fall brings a sense of closeness and community that makes every occasion more special. If you have already decided on your guest list and location it’s time to consider these must-haves for your fall bridal shower. Fall makes it easy for your event to be beautiful and memorable.
A Great Theme
Even though a theme isn’t mandatory it can add a bit of charm to the whole occasion. Fall provides so many great ideas. Here are a few to consider:
- She’s Fallen in Love (Fall leaves theme)
- Something Wonderful is Brewing (for a coffee and dessert theme)
- “I Do” Barbeque (especially for a couple’s shower)
- Beside the Campfire Brunch (don’t forget to wear a flannel)
A Love of Nature
Whether you host indoors or outdoors, including natural elements is important for a fall bridal shower. Rustic decorations such as apples, pine cones, pumpkins, or sunflowers add an element of fall beauty by bringing the outdoors inside in a tasteful manner. If you are planning the event outdoors, hay bales or a cozy fire subtly showcase the season, while creating an inviting atmosphere for the guests. Remember that hay bales can be uncomfortable long-term, so be sure to drape them in blankets and have plenty of proper seating as well.
A Touch of Elegance
Because fall decorations are rustic it is important to add elegant touches. Farm tables adorned with burlap or white linens make beautiful displays for desserts or gifts. A chocolate fountain for improvised s’mores or a champagne cart can make a statement without distracting from other decorations.
