Planning a Beautiful Bridal Shower


Planning a wedding can be one of the most fun – and let’s be honest, sometimes the most stressful – time in a future bride’s life! Once the question is popped and the engagement is announced, it’s time to start planning! At Flowers by Nonna we meet brides, grooms, their future spouses and their bridal party in Ridgewood, Queens, NY all the time that are ready to start planning their bridal flowers.

A new trend we’re noticing in wedding planning is bridal shower flowers. We love making out hand-crafted flower arrangements for bridal showers because this is a fun opportunity for the bride and her bridal party to be creative without having to stick to the wedding theme or color palette. There are so many choices when it comes to picking a theme for bridal shower decorations and flowers, so we picked a few of our favorites to help you get inspired.

A Champaign Brunch is the quintessential mix of delightful fun and a classy affair. This bridal shower theme is a perfect way to sit around with the ladies, relax and celebrate the bride while enjoying a nice meal and some champagne. This mid-morning celebration is perfect for a delicate pastel color palette based around the color white. We suggest choosing the brides favorite colors and pickings a pastel hue to match with white for the decorations. For a pink-loving bride, we suggest the Shades of Pink Flower Bouquet which is brimming with pale pink roses, lilies and more all hand-tied to create the perfect pastel decoration inspiration.

With the wedding on the way, the honeymoon probably isn’t much further ahead! The honeymoon is one of the most fun parts of the wedding season and celebrating the bridal shower with a honeymoon theme is a fun and creative idea. Decoration theming can be based off their destination and the couple can request to skip all gifts in lieu of some padding to their honeymoon fund. For an outdoorsy couple taking off of a romantic camping get away, choose decorations that celebrate greenery and nature with deep browns and warm green in the color palette. For a couple embarking on a grand European getaway, try to decorate with things that remind everyone of their destination. The Fields of Europe Flower Arrangement ties together all the beauty of the European countryside and brings some nature to your décor – a perfect choice!
