Elegant Indoor Themes

1. Classic Tea Party:

Revive the timeless elegance of a traditional tea party. Decorate with vintage teacups, lace tablecloths, and floral centerpieces. Serve an assortment of teas, finger sandwiches, scones, and pastries. Our sophisticated indoor setting enhances this theme with its graceful decor and refined ambiance.

2. Parisian Chic:

Bring the charm of Paris to The Grand Ivy Point with a Parisian chic theme. Think of using pastel color palettes, luxurious macarons, delicate pastries, and sparkling champagne. Decor can include Eiffel Tower statues and French floral arrangements, creating a stylish and romantic atmosphere.

3. Hollywood Glamour:

Channel the golden age of Hollywood for a glamorous bridal shower. Use black, gold, and red decor, with movie reel decorations, star cutouts, and velvet drapes. Host a red carpet entrance, and serve classic cocktails and gourmet appetizers to add to the glam.

4. Garden Party Indoors:

Create an indoor garden party with potted plants, floral garlands, and greenery. Use garden-themed decor like watering cans and flower pots as centerpieces. Serve light and fresh cuisine, such as garden salads, vegetable tarts, and floral-infused beverages.

5. Tropical Luau:

Turn up the heat with a tropical luau theme, featuring bright colors, bold floral prints, and tropical fruits. Decorate with tiki torches (LED for indoor use), palm leaves, and leis. Offer tropical cocktails, fruit skewers, and island-inspired dishes to transport guests to a sunny paradise.

Menu Inspirations

Light and Refreshing:

Summer bridal showers call for light and refreshing fare. Offer a variety of salads, such as a citrus avocado salad or a strawberry spinach salad. Include mini sandwiches, cold pasta salads, and fruit-infused waters or iced teas.

Brunch Favorites:

If you’re hosting a brunch-themed shower, provide a mix of breakfast and lunch items. Think mini quiches, croissants, a waffle bar, mimosas, and a coffee station with various syrups and toppings.

Decadent Desserts:

A dessert bar can be a focal point. Include options like miniature cheesecakes, lemon bars, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and an assortment of cupcakes. Consider a custom cake that fits the shower theme, adding a personal and elegant touch.

Decor and Setup

Table Settings:

Create beautiful table settings with coordinated tablecloths, runners, and napkins. Add special touches with customized place cards and menu cards. Centerpieces can vary from simple candle arrangements to elaborate floral displays, depending on your theme.

Photo Booth:

Set up a photo booth area with props that match your theme. This not only provides entertainment but also allows guests to take home a personalized keepsake from the event.

Favor Ideas:

Send guests home with a memorable token from the shower. Ideas include personalized candles, mini champagne bottles, custom cookies, or small plants.
