Bridal showers originated centuries ago during the days of dowries. When women wanted to marry "unsuitable" husbands, their families refused to provide a dowry, so friends of the couple gathered to pitch in and make up for the lack of a dowry by helping them set up their home. Today, bridal showers are a time to share stories and advice, eat and drink, and pay special attention to the bride.
Napkins, Balloons, and streamers. (Ahh! Flashback to my clown_themed 4th birthday party where the creepy clown made me pee my pants!) No, not cheesy balloons and streamers, but purposeful and eye_catching. For example, our Halloween party last year was decked to the nines in the kitchen. But the living room? Bare. I strung up some streamers and tossed some balloons on the floor, and voila...instant decor.
