Bridal showers are a fun gathering hosted to celebrate the beautiful bride-to-be before her wedding day! Whether the maid-of-honor, mother of the bride, or a close family friend hosts the party, we’re sharing 5 unique party ideas to make this event unforgettable!
One: Host a Floral Arranging Class
Adding an interactive and hands-on activity to your party agenda is always a great idea! Instead of the traditional bridal shower games, opt for hosting a floral arranging class! This activity is great for guests of all ages and encourages mingling. Friends and family will enjoy sipping on cocktails while learning how to make beautiful arrangements via an Alice’s Table host. What’s even better is that the Alice’s Table exec comes to you and brings all of the necessary materials.
At the end of the party, let guests take home their hand-crafted arrangements as a party favor!
Two: Host a Feast Dinner Party
We know how stressful hosting a party can be! So, why worry about all the logistics of food and decor when Feast Dinner Party can handle it for you!?
Feast Dinner Party, a Denver based catering company, comes onsite to set up, style, and service the entire experience from seasonal floral arrangements and curated menus to calligraphy name cards and so much more. Let their team do the heavy lifting so you can enjoy the party with all of the guests and bride-to-be! You and the guests can partake in traditional bridal shower games during set up, between courses or afterward. Work with Feast Dinner Party to design the party of your dreams!
For a dinner party inspired favor, consider gifting guests something related to the kitchen! Perhaps a whisk with a recipe card tied to it or
If the bride-to-be is a lover of the outdoors, then a picnic is a beautiful way to celebrate her! Gather at a local park or backyard for a picnic-style party. Set up yard games galore for guests to hang out and mingle with a glass of champagne. Some of our favorite yard games include lifesize Connect-4, Cornhole, Jenga, and Yard Darts!

And, for the party favor, pass out Turkish towels upon arrival! This gift also serves as a great place to sit and relax on during the party.
Four: Tea Party
Who doesn’t love a good tea party? Invite guests over mid-morning or afternoon for tea, light sandwiches and snacks, and of course, games! Ask guests to dress in their best Sunday attire to amplify the theme. Set up croquet on your back lawn for guests to enjoy while mingling over iced tea, lemonade, and cocktails.
For a tea-inspired party favor, consider vintage teacups or a custom tea gift box with different flavors of tea, honey, and more!
Five: Wine Tasting
Now, this is an idea we can get on board with! If the bride-to-be you’re planning a party for is a wine aficionado, then wine tasting is the perfect activity for her party!
What we love most about this party idea, aside from the wine, is that the gathering happens at an outside venue. That means less clean-up and planning on your end. Many vineyards or wineries offer event packages and can help with all the nitty-gritty details. Not to mention, sampling wine is a great way for guests to get to know one another!
For the wine inspired party favor, consider a customized wine glass, miniature wine bottles, or cute wine openers!
