5 Bridal Shower Themes Perfect for Wintertime

There’s no better time to celebrate the bride-to-be than the holiday season: your home is already decked out, family is in town, and cooling temperatures make everyone want to cozy up inside to enjoy a festive get-together. If “plan a bridal shower” has made its way onto your holiday to-do list, I’ve got you covered with five wintertime themes that are sure to make your celebrations merry and bright!

1. Garlands and Gold Bridal Shower

Elegant and timeless, this theme of greenery and gold is fitting for a bride who leans toward classic choices rather than the latest trends. Evergreen garlands are glammed up with sparkles of gold, adding a formal feel to this theme!

Weave twinkle lights through a real Christmas garland (or buy a prelit one) to add some sparkle to your tablescape. A balloon chandelier is the perfect way to display photographs of the couple, suspended from gold balloons—be sure to have double-sided tape on hand to secure the tops of the balloons to the ceiling. If you’re feeling crafty, miniature champagne bottles covered in glitter make for a favor that pops! Whip up these vanilla champagne cocktails to elegantly toast the bride!

2. Flannel and Frost Bridal Shower

I love this theme for a couple’s shower! Bold plaids, rustic touches, and lush winter greenery combine to create a warm and inviting event.

Invite guests to warm up at the hot chocolate bar, filled with delicious toppings and decorated with touches of plaid. A cozy charcuterie board encourages guests to mingle and enjoy while they’re at the party, while a to-go s’mores bag is a sweet sendoff to enjoy at home!

3. Snow in Love Bridal Shower

Cooling temperatures are perfect for snuggling up and celebrating your closest friends. This “snow in love” theme is perfect for a more intimate, casual gathering!

An all-white color palette inspired by snow makes decorating easy and elegant! Use white blooms paired with branches spray-painted white for striking centerpieces and decor. Snowflake cupcake toppers add a whimsical touch to dessert, and these adorable miniature snowflake soap favors double as decor when displayed.

4. Stock the Tree Bridal Shower

I love the idea of asking each guest to include an ornament for the newlyweds’ first tree! This invitation inspired me to choose a color palette that’s a little less traditional: instead of red and green, I went for pops of pink, gold, and other bright colors!

Create a shimmering tablescape with greenery, ornaments, and candles, and colorful bottle brushes are an inexpensive way to add visual interest. Decorate cupcakes with macaroons decorated to look like Christmas ornaments–your guests will be impressed!

5. Mistletoe and Mimosas

I saved the most classic Christmas theme for last! Use the traditional colors of red and green to host a Christmas brunch in honor of your bride-to-be, complete with holiday-themed mimosas! Your guests will be filled with cheer as they say, “cheers!”

Set the mood the moment guests arrive at the door: order a Christmas wreath sash from Etsy with the bride’s new last initial to use at the shower, and give it to her as a gift when the party is over! When the gifts have been opened and the last mimosa sipped, send guests home with little bags of peppermint bark, tied up with rosemary.
