Say It With Flowers! Pretty Bridal Shower Basics
Let us help you get the ideas blooming! Here are the prettiest bridal shower basics inspired by spring florals—that would make a virtual gathering with your besties just as special!
The event may be virtual. But start it off with a personal touch, hand-written fill-in-the-blank Floral Virtual Bridal Shower Invitations (1 – available on Amazon). Send these out early enough, though, so your guests can get ready for a virtual event at their end, too.
Next, prepare decorations to be seen on-cam that you can easily order online or make right at home. A glittery Bride-to-Be cake topper (2 – from Glam Celebration) would be a lovely way to dress up a simple cake adorned with flowers. While a DIY hanging flower backdrop (3 – Dollar Tree) is both a super-simple and spring-like accent for the occasion.
And speaking of "to be seen on cam," why not plan for you and your guests to wear spring dresses in floral colors for those bridal shower souvenir shots? You in a sunshiny yellow Pelagia Dress (4 – by White Mark, available at Macy’s) with lace cutout details, while the rest choose pink, lavender, peach, sky blue, and so on. And for bride-to-be accessories, add a fun sash, garland, and floral headband set from (7 – available on Amazon).
Spring flower cookies would be the perfect sweet treat to serve—lovingly home-baked then delivered to your guests ahead of time. Or you could organize a virtual cookie decorating activity for the shower (5 – idea from Frosted Cake Studio) with ingredients pre-bought and everyone joining in the frosting fun online!
Lastly, prepare a bridal shower cocktail that’s as pretty as this Spring Wedding Sangria (6 – from Bhldn) tinted blue by butterfly pea flower concentrate. A fitting toast to end this floral-themed virtual spring bridal shower!
