And because we’re all trying to figure out how to navigate parties in the age of Covid, we’ve included some of our best social distancing tips to help ensure the safety of your guests. 


Social Distancing Tips When Hosting a Shower:

  • Plan your shower around a time of year that the weather will allow you to host the event outdoors.
  • Consider cutting down on the amount of people attending the event or host a “drop in” shower which allows you to split your guests in groups and assign a specific time for them to drop by. Be specific in your invitations as to how you will social distance so that your guests can make an informed decision before they  RSVP.
  • Guests can be confident they are germ free when the food and drinks are served in individual cups. From veggies and dip to dessert cups you will find many creative recipes to accommodate individual servings.

Beautiful Boho Bridal Shower Theme

For the bride with a hippie side, a bohemian themed shower is a great way to give the guest of honor that carefree vibe that she loves!

  • Floral crowns can actually be made for the guests and the bride-to-be to wear or they can be used as decor. Hanging from the mantle of a fireplace or multiple ones hanging at different levels from the ceiling will add an extra dimension of detail to the decorations! 
  • Edible flowers? Who knew? For an unforgettable and unique dessert option, make adult popsicles using your favorite rose wine and a mixture of edible flowers. 
  • A beautiful spot for taking pictures is a must at every shower. Create a photo backdrop that’s full of texture and romance using pampas grass and macrame galore! 
  • Wow them with a beautiful table arrangement. Forgo the typical flowers in a vase by making a floral garland for your table. Start with eucalyptus and greenery and add finishing touches by nestling your favorite flowers and candles throughout. 
  • Treat your guests with a special gift by sending them home with their own mini succulent. Add a little tag with a cute saying like “Watch Love Grow”.
