A garden bridal shower is the perfect setting for celebrating upcoming nuptials, don’t you think? Wedding season is in full swing. I love admiring all the unique and inspiring ideas on Pinterest. One of my favorite parties that I have ever thrown was my niece’s Bridal Shower. You can see all the details HERE.
Taking the party outside is one of my favorite things to do, especially when the weather is warmer. The greatest part about this? Having the natural landscaping to add to the decor. When having a backdrop of lush greenery and garden roses, little else is needed to add to the beauty of a garden bridal shower!
I have rounded up some of my favorite garden Bridal Shower party ideas for you. What I love about all these ideas, is that you can use them for more than just a wedding theme! These garden party ideas are perfect for a birthday or anniversary party. Or just for summer entertaining!
Use a Unique Chair for the Guest of Honor
I love the idea of creating a special seat for the Bride-to-be! And how perfect is this one draped in flowers? Via Inspired By This. The juxtaposition of the rattan set amongst the outdoors for the garden bridal shower is perfect!
I used a similar chair for my niece’s Bridal Shower and brought out this pink peacock chair for the bride-to-be! I love having a special seat for the guest of honor!
Use Flowers from the garden for Your Table
I love this table draped in oversized peonies! The best thing about this? The greenery is faux, allowing you to create the tablescape ahead of time and not worry about the flowers wilting in the sun! This table is simple, but stunning. The perfect garden bridal shower setting! Via Crazy For Us.
Another beautiful peony table setting via The Nest. How can you say no to peonies?!
And I just love this intimate garden setting for a smaller bridal shower. My friend, Rhonda at Hallstrom Home always creates the most beautiful settings with her incredible linens!
I love how my friend Janine from Happy Happy Nester created this incredible garden party! The jasmine wrapped around the chairs is one of this simple ideas that make a huge impact!
For this Bridal Shower, I used a mixture of hydrangeas from the yard along with garden roses to pull from the natural landscaping.
Bring The Barcart outside
I love this outdoor bar cart from 100 Layer Cake. A garden bridal shower is the perfect event to bring your bar cart outside and style it up for the occasion!
I also love the details on this outdoor bar cart from Style Me Pretty.
Host a DIY Succulent Station
What a lovely idea to have a planting station at your bridal shower. Each guest can choose their container and plant their own succulent to take home with them! Have signage that reads “Let Love Grow”! This is an easy and fun way to start off the party! Images via Beijos Events and Row House Nest.
Edible Garden Themed Food
And you can add flowers to the food too! These individual puddings look especially cute with some edible flowers ontop. Via Beijos Events.
I love the idea of serving food in these cute terra-cotta pots. The carrots and hummus are too cute. Via HWTM blog
Garden Bridal Shower Cakes
Nothing says Garden Party more than a naked cake. The simplicity of the cake topped with beautiful flowers is the perfect dessert for a garden bridal shower! Image via Tu Eres El Chef.
Brit + Co has a great tutorial on how to make your own naked cake.
And I love this strawberry topped cake! Via Fab Mood.
Serve A Garden Inspired Cocktail
My recipe for Watermelon Frozen Rose is perfect for any summer event, but I think it’s absolutely fitting for a Garden Bridal Shower!
I always like to provide something non-alcoholic for guests and this Rose, Lemon and Strawberry infused water is not only beautiful but sounds delicious!
