Kraft Paper Bridal Shower

A popular new trend in the wedding industry is the use of DIY (do it yourself) materials in wedding decor. While the bride and groom may not have actually done it themselves, the fun additions to your wedding or bridal shower can give the event a more casual and homemade style.

Searching for bridal shower invitations can be daunting, but finding one to fit your theme is easy at FineStationery.com. Offering the best designs in wedding stationery, there is an invitation for every theme, season, and color scheme. Once you select your favorite invitation, you can begin planning your bridal shower decorations to match.

This craft paper theme was based off the feminine bridal shower invitations by Bonnie Marcus, available at FineStationery. The white ink on brown paper makes this invitation really pop! Craft paper is a very affordable decor that can be used in many different decoration ideas, from food prep to favors. Stop by your local butcher shop and see if they have extra yards of paper to spare, or you can visit your local craft supplies store and by it on a roll.

For table numbers and centerpieces, we were inspired by this simple and feminine baby's breath arrangement on Etsy. Continue the trend with easy-to-make drink stirrers with tiny craft paper flags. With a white paint pen, scribe a cheerful saying like "I do!" or "Cheers!" or a mix of different celebratory expressions. Guests will get a kick out of your sweet candy bar station that is constructed from bowls or baskets lined with brown paper bags - how easy! Use small scoopers and allow guests to fill up their own brown paper bag with treats to take home after the event.

To reduce costs on flower arrangements, go with living plants. Mini succulents are very inexpensive bridal shower favors and need little care. Wrapped with paper and tied with twine, they are perfect for place settings and take home gifts! If you prefer a traditional bridal shower favor, you can incorporate the craft paper theme with custom stickers with elegant typography to match your invitation. These square stickers are an easy way to tie in your favor to the shower decor.
