And boy, did we come across some real fab inspiration! Got a shower theme in mind? You just might find the perfect garland to match it right here!
Such Pretty Finds from Cool Blogs!
1 – Planning an Alice in Wonderland-inspired shower? Then, this unique playing cards garland, found on the German interior design blog Minimalisti, would be just the thing! You could either use an actual deck of cards or else download the designs and print them out on card stock. (Note: This post is actually for a Valentine’s party full of the cutest themed ideas!)
2 – Another attractive option is a hanging garland to be suspended from the ceiling, a door frame, or even a chandelier. This pretty example we found via Pinterest is attributed to Creature Comforts (although we can’t trace the original post). Love its combination of patterned and vellum paper and the dainty scalloped edging.
3 – Perfect for a bridal shower, this all-white bunting features a combination of girly dresses, paper flowers, and a monogram “M.” Credited to Darcy Miller Designs via this Pinterest entry (we’d love to credit the actual post or shop listing, if anyone knows it), it offers a great opportunity to personalize your decorations for the bride-to-be!
4 – Cheers for the oh-so-versatile cupcake liner! Among its many decorating possibilities is being transformed into a paper pompom garland, like this one found on Hello! Lucky. And lucky indeed for us all that the post links to a great DIY template and tutorial.
5 – To play up the shower idea, what about a whimsical umbrella garland like this one available at the etsy shop GFetti? This multi-colored decorative piece has a clever punched-out design with the umbrella cutouts hanging alternately with their matching ‘stencils.’ Colors can be customized, too.
6 – Wedding dress cutouts strung on gossamer ribbon make the sweetest bridal shower garland (don’t you just love that they’re on tiny hangers?). Available at the etsy shop Grandpa’s Pocket, this can also double as a ‘guest book’ option with the dresses doubling as wishing cards!
7 – If you’ve never tried making origami, now’s your chance! How lovely would an origami butterfly garland be gracing a springtime or garden shower, or one with a Japanese theme? This find is from White Willow Events and includes a helpful video tutorial.
