Diamonds are a popular focal point for a bridal shower because of the dazzling engagement ring. Set them amidst a palette of blush to hot pink, touches of gold and lots of sparkle—and you have the perfect setting for a “Diamonds AND a Girl’s Best Friends” theme! Combine elegant elements with playfully posh ones, for a pre-wedding celebration that’s both girly and glamorous. After all, precious as diamonds are, your besties are most priceless of all!
Girly and Glitzy Elements for a Diamond-themed Bridal Shower
Once you’ve decided on a palette of blush to hot pink, plus gold and crystal for the diamonds—the bridal shower stage is all set!
Announce the upcoming event with invites (1) that are sparkly and chic (love that hot pink calligraphy on the envelope flap!), including a “love sparkles” imprint on the invite. Then greet arriving guests with bubbly Raspberry Champagne Floats (2) that will surely set the festive mood. And get everyone settled at the guest tables, prettied up with “beauty and bling” vignette-type centerpieces using a pink perfume bottle, lipstick, a pearl brooch, a rhinestone picture frame, and a flower vase decorated with pastel pink ribbons–all resting on a mirror (7).
Serve dazzling miniature 2-tiered cakes with edible glitter (3) in shades of pink with rhinestone ribbon trim, plus sweet treats like Fudge Chocolate Gems (4) in pink and gold—all displayed on a dessert buffet with a bridal shower cake topped with a glittery “He put a ring on it” topper (5)!
And of course, for some BFF bling to take home, gift guests with adorable diamond ring donuts (6) and bottles of blush nail polish with gem-shaped favor tags (8). Fun and fashionable at the same time!
Styling tip: When decorating this theme, the key is to not over-decorate the party with diamond themed items. Instead, opt for subtle, impactful elements that create a glamorous look that is chic and modern with vintage touches. Use color to bring out the theme’s intent like adding a pop of hot pink glitter!
