What’s more chic than a colorful party to celebrate the bride-to-be? A Pineapples and Palms bridal shower is bright, vibrant, and so tropicana. With shimmery golds, watercolor stripes, and lush green palms, this bridal shower theme is perfect for anything from a Palm Springs-inspired soirée to a tropical shower to celebrate the bride’s destination wedding. Here’s a few tips to throwing one fabulous shower!
A Fresh Food and Drink Station
Start with a delicious food and drink station. Serve freshly cut pineapple, watermelon, and canteloupe for a taste of the tropics. Leave a bottle of champagne and juice for girls to mix up their own mimosas and stack pretty pineapple donuts on a cake stand for a lovely presentation.
Special Place Settings
Set a special palms photo frame at each girl’s seat. Personalize each one with the couple’s names and wedding date or with each guest’s name!
Dress up water with personalized water bottle labels that perfectly match the shower theme.
Fill striped paper favor bags with pineapple gummies or one of the bride’s favorite treats for something sweet at each place setting. Adhere a personalized sticker to the bag and tie a small palm to each set of disposable cutlery for cute touches!
Fruity Tropical Cocktails
Make your guests feel like they’ve escaped to somewhere sunny with a few fruity cocktails! Mix fresh orange juice, pineapple juice, and mango nectar in a glass bottle. Combine the juice mix with champagne in personalized mason jars, then top with fresh fruit for one tasty drink!
Gold straws and personalized party straw flags add a little shimmer to each cocktail.
DIY Gifts for Your Girls
You can’t send guests home without a gift! Fill a palms tote bag with a gold pineapple bottle stopper, a cute scarf, and pineapple sunglasses.
To make your pineapple sunglasses, you only need two supplies: yellow sunglasses and one gold paint pen. Simply begin by drawing X’s on each side or temple of each pair. Then place small dots in each space around each X and voilà! Your pineapple sunglasses are complete!
A Simple DIY Acrylic Tray
Create your own DIY acrylic tray that’ll make a beautiful addition to the food and drink station!
- One clear shadowbox frame
- Super Glue®
- Gold bamboo pulls (Ours were brushed bronze, and we spray painted them gold)
This DIY project is so easy, it can be completed in one step. Just use the Super Glue® to adhere the bamboo pulls on each side and done!
Pretty Pineapple Touches
A few sleek pineapple touches are perfect for elevating this gorgeous theme. Textured gold votive holders filled with small palms become lush table centerpieces. Pineapple bottle stoppers are some fancy favors the girls will love taking home and using for their own parties!
Watercolor pineapple favor boxes are the cutest containers to fill with more sweets or with an adorable pineapple or palm tree necklace or charm bracelet.
