Whether you live by the beach or the bride-to-be has a love for the ocean, there are so many special sea-inspired elements you can incorporate into a beach bridal shower. For this breezy bridal shower, Andressa of Twinkle Twinkle Little Party, chose a sandy riverbank to bring her beach-themed celebration to life. These seven ideas will help inspire a bridal shower with a beach theme:

Beach Themed Bridal Shower

2. An Beachfront Location

Choose a shady spot in the sand to host a beautiful bridal shower for the bride-to-be. Not near the water? Any outdoor venue will do for some fun in the sun! Transform the space with pillows and a low table so guests can sit comfortably in the sand.

Styling Tip: Create a low table using wooden crates and a painted plank of wood. The crates can be used to carry all of your shower supplies, too!

3. Organic Decor

Starfish and sea shells make whimsical decor for the table. Simply string starfish on natural nautical rope and attach it to stakes in the sand for easy DIY beach bunting.

4. Sea-Inspired Place Settings

Gold “fish net” place mats are elegant foundations for each place setting. Add sea-glass-inspired plates and a coral place card holder to mark each guest’s special spot at the table.

It’s always a good idea to keep plenty of water on hand, especially if the bottles are topped with adorable sea-themed icons like sea horses and sand dollars!

5. A Blue Ombré Color Palette

Blue, white, and sand-colored hues make a serene color palette for a beachfront fête. Incorporating these colors in the desserts helps them serve as beautiful edible decor. This ombré cake shines as the centerpiece on the table!

Planning Tip: Burn citronella candles in gold lanterns to help keep the bugs away.
