Planning A Bridal Shower? Need A Theme?

Throwing a shower and can't decide on a theme? Why not base it on a color? Or type of color.  The photo above uses neon colors to throw a great party. In this case they are looking for an 80's look.

What can you take from this? No matter what color you are using the five vases on the table runner filled with gebera daisies (also in bright colors) catch your eye are are really easy to make! You can choose to either color the water (wow simple right?) or use some acrylic paints and just swirl it around a tall glass or Dollar Store vase.

And see that flower pot to the right in the photo above from Nest of Posies? Just another simple trick to make yourself! It is a painted flower pot decorated with bright rick rack.  (All it takes is a little glue, rick rack and a painted flower pot and coaster under it) How simple can it be? (Oh and don't forget to add the potted flowers!)

So if you can't come up with a theme for a bridal shower, make your color scheme the theme! It allows for lots of DIY projects. (It is also easy to use these ideas for any kind of party you might be throwing!) I'd love to use these votives at Christmas time, or the vases with with a single red or white rose or even carnations if you are budget conscious.
