Traditionally: Something low_key but casually elegant and, ideally, pretty, such as someone's home, garden or backyard, or a restaurant or tea house. Our Take: Keep your budget and abilities in mind. Traveling to Chicago for a fancy brunch makes sense if a lot of attendees live just outside Chicago__but not if you're all based in Florida. Also, don't ditch the backyard just because it seems super traditional. Backyards have the distinct advantage of being free, and there are so many ways to make someone's backyard feel special. You can go with the tried and true__fresh flowers and paper garlands are classics for a reason. Or you can go for the unique_to_them touches__a tropical_themed collection of homemade desserts for your Hawaii_obsessed pal, for example.
Host a "Stock the Pantry" Bridal Shower: I recently hosted what I feel is an innovative theme for a bride and groom shower, a 'Stock The Pantry Shower". This kind of 'theme shower' allows the groom to be present and guests can be both men and women. It was such a nice event! After all both a man and a woman are joining in union so it makes sense that all sexes would be invited to celebrate. A 'Stock the Pantry Shower" is also wondering for the LGBTQ community because there are many combinations of genders that celebrate a union of two people so why should this kind of event be exclusive to only women. A wedding is a time to celebrate the love of two people and a shower is the perfect gathering to get this commencement underway.
