With springtime JUST around the corner, along with warmer weather it brings the unofficial start of wedding season. As weddings are getting more and more expensive, you’re wedding shower doesn’t have to be! Help the bride keep on budget for her big day by planning the perfect wedding shower at home.
HOST YOUR OWN BAR
A party isn’t really a party without some bubbly. Liven up wedding shower by popping open a glass of MARTINI Asti Sparkling Wine. Known for its light green gold colour, delicate bubbles and lively sparkle, there is now better way to cheers to the bride-to-be than with its sweet fruit flavour filled with a flowery aroma mixed apricots, peaches and lemon candy aromas.

DECOR & GIFT IDEAS
When planning the perfect bridal shower, why not pick up items that you can use to serve the food and add to your buffet display but that the bride-to-be can keep as well. Since she will be outfitting her new home, pick out items that she can find useful and reflect her personal style. Tiered serving platters (like these ones available in store at Pier 1 Imports) are a great way to maximize the space on your table while adding some dimension to the layout. Plus, they are extremely versatile so she is bound to use them again and again! I love these Mini Flares (also available in store at Pier 1 Imports) because they are the perfect size for personal dessert cups and look lovely on display as well!
Serve those one-pot meals in this stunning Dutch Oven from All-Clad. The 5.5 QT vessel effortlessly prepares heaps of comforting meals has has browning capabilities as well as oven safe features, this versatile dish goes from kitchen to dining room.
If you’re looking to add some colour to your decor, pre-order the perfect bouquet from Metro! With a ton of blooms to choose from, it’s so easy to find the perfect one to match your party decor.
Or, channel you’re inner interior decorator by picking up some fresh flowers at Metro, beautiful vases like these from Walmart (that the bride can keep too!) and arrange your own centerpiece.
For the bridesmaids, why not adorn them in a personalized Love Bridge bracelet from Thomas Sabo.

With the option to include a personalized engraved message on them, show those celebrating your special day with you how much you care by giving them a special bracelet.
