Come Up With a Theme

Let's put it this way: "Bridal shower" isn't a theme. So instead of hanging a bunch of tissue paper wedding bells and calling it a day, come up with a real theme -- it'll help make the rest of the planning decisions a cinch. Go kitschy with a '50s housewife theme party with wooden spoons, whisks, and aprons as decor; give a nod to her favorite food with a Mexican fiesta; or let something as simple as a button inspire the entire party. In the very least, let the guest of honor's favorite colors guide the details.
