How To Host A Folksy, Family & Friends Bridal Shower Free E-Book



Believe it or not, but Fall has become the season for weddings versus the Spring and with weddings comes bridal showers.

For anyone who has even contemplated hosting a bridal shower the idea of hosting a bridal shower may seem overwhelming and daunting at best. That's why so many nowadays are held out at restaurants with a professional handling all the arrangements.

However, with a little planning and organization hosting a bridal shower can end up being fun for the whole family, for all the participants and a wonderful event for all to remember. And, it doesn't have to be held out at a fancy, expensive restaurant.


In a previous post on my Linda's Blog I eluded to the fact that my sister and sisters-in-law and I had hosted a bridal shower for our oldest niece several years ago.

Instead of a bridal shower out at a restaurant one of my sisters-in-law and I decided on a more traditional, small, folksy, family & friends bridal shower - like we used to remember going to when we were growing up. We decided that, "Hey, we can do this if we all work together! It'll be fun!" We decided that we would cook all the food and make all the decorations, prizes, centerpieces, and bridal shower favors. Small, folksy and intimate like bridal showers and baby showers, for that matter, used to be.

I was in charge of the shower and one of my sisters-in-law was helping me with all the planning and creating of all the decorations. My sister (who doesn't live nearby) was coming up to help with the final decorations and food preparation. The latter is my least favorite thing to do, but she's fantastic at it so she was assigned the menu. And, my Mother, one of my other sisters-in-law and two young nieces were going to help with the food preparation, serving, greeting of the guests, etc.

It was a LOT of work to be sure, but I knew that with preparation and organization that we could do this. Looking back on the bridal shower I have to tell you that my sister-in-law and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves planning for and creating all the things we needed for the shower. It was a fun filled crafting experience.

So I thought you might enjoy a free e-book on how we did this.  Enjoy!
