With summer coming soon I thought I would share a shower I hosted a while back. It was a Drive-By Bridal Shower or Open House for my soon to be cousin. It is a great way to host a party for lots of guests without a huge venue. It worked perfectly. It was a rainy day, but guests came and visited while she opened gifts then grabbed a treat to go. Despite the rain everyone had a lovely time. It was so fun to celebrate the bride to be and gather as family and friends.
Just because this party is themed as a drive-by does not mean it can only be used that way. It is adorable for any bridal shower without the drive-by wording included. It includes lots of flower elements if you want to skip using the car all together. I however love that cute vintage pink car! It would also be a great fall bridal shower theme with the rich colors in the beautiful flowers.
Guests were welcomed with the large 24×36 Printable Bridal Shower welcome sign as they arrived. A great way statement piece to put out front at any shower indoors or out.
I purchased 2 white tents to create our outdoor “party space”. They brought everything together to mimic a room and also protected us from the rain/sun. Guests knew right where the party was.
The main focal point of the party was the treat table. It featured a Bride To Be banner, cupcakes, water bottles, and popcorn for guests to grab as they were leaving. I love the big balloon tower of boxes as well. It brought it a great pop of color to the space. I will definitely be using it at other upcoming events. You can spell out tons of words.
For safety precautions I packaged everything individually including the cupcakes. These boxes were a perfect way to show them off still. Each cupcake had shimmery pink sprinkles on top and a tag with the bride’s name and shower date.
Popcorn was individually bagged with tags that said; “He popped the question and she said yes!” and “Thanks for popping by!”.
I picked up flowers locally the evening before the party. I always love fresh blooms at a party.
I created a seating area for the Bride to be to open gifts and sit to visit with guests. She had her own tray of cupcakes, this sweet centerpiece, and a list for writing down gifts.
It was a lovely day. We are so excited to have welcomed her to the family.
