Other Ideas Bridal Shower Spring Themes
33. Plan an Around-the-Clock Gift Exchange
This idea is better with a lot of guests, but the number of people doesn’t matter. The idea is every guest giving the bride a present according to the time. For example, for 8 am, a coffee maker will be ideal. If you write a small letter along with the gift, it will make the bride happier and may even burst into joyful tears!
34. Foreshadow a Destination Wedding
If your friend is going abroad for the wedding, why not recreate the party room like the country? It will be a preview of her wedding.

Place a world map on the wall, some globes on the selves, and serve great food.
35. Quiz Guests
For some extra fun, quiz your guests! Play Bingo or a short quiz. If there’s a prize, everyone will be even more motivated. The most important part is that the bride doesn’t get hurt even if someone doesn’t know the answer. Don’t worry, we all love you, friend!
36. Shower the Bride-To-Be With Good Advice

You could place picture frames all over the room, but photograph balloons are a more creative choice. You can add the pictures to the balloon itself or tie them to the string so that they are more visible. They take up less space, but they sure are prettier!
38. Guestbook Selfies
Place a camera in a pretty setting so that everyone wants to take pictures there. Don’t forget that the background has to be pretty and lighting should be good. That way you don’t have to go to everyone to take pictures with them. Instead, you’ll have a whole photo book with everyone in it! Less work, but more fun.
39. Fruit-Infused Water
To make the party interesting, add some fruit in the water. They are not only pretty, but they also taste good and pair well with any food. You can also add them to cocktails for an extra hint of fruit scent.
