One of my best friends is getting married! I co-hosted a bridal shower in her honor yesterday and thought I would share with you some of our budget friendly and trendy ideas. Thank you to my friend Jenny who took these amazing pictures!
We created a Champagne Bar (pictured above) for our guests. This is easy to put together, fairly inexpensive and very elegant.
Champagne Bar Supplies:
- Carafes for juice
- Champagne Glasses
- Several types of juice (we used peach, orange and blueberry pomegranate)
- Champagne (Dry or Brut champagne)
- Fruit (we used blueberries, peaches and strawberries)
- Dishes for the fruit
- Champagne Bar Sign (Purchase Now: Instant Download Champagne Bar Sign $2.00)
I found carafes at Target for $5.99 each (in store). To label the juice, I added the pink hang tags with some pale yellow ribbon. The pale yellow ribbon was $1.00 at Dollar Tree and I had a ton left over. Use the link below to download and print your own free hang tags.

Frozen fruit is perfect for champagne bars, since it keeps the champagne chilled. It is also more cost effective to buy frozen when the fruit is not in season. The glass heart shaped bowls that held the fruit were found at Dollar Tree for $1.00 each. I also found a 4 pair set of plastic tongs for only $1.00.
I designed an Advice and Well Wishes Card for the guests to fill out and made a coordinating sign. I picked up a 5x7 frame at the Dollar Tree and also found the cute white wire basket to hold the cards for $1.00. These are great to include in a photo album or scrapbook along with pictures from the shower! Purchase now: Instant Download Advice and Well Wishes Cards and Sign $3.00
A bridal shower wouldn't be complete without sweets! The simple chocolate cupcakes with pink frosting fit in perfectly with the pink and yellow color scheme and they made a beautiful centerpiece for the food table.
Food Tent Cards add the perfect touch to your food/dessert/buffet tables. It is always a great idea to label the foods so your guests know exactly what you are serving. These can also be used as place cards for your guests. Purchase now: Instant Download Pink Rose Food Tent / Place Cards $2.00
A few small rose bushes added the last touch for our décor and an added pop of color.
Overall we kept the shower budget friendly, but added touches of elegance and class. The guests had a great time mingling and catching up!
