bbq Shower

Kelly, on May 10, 2019 at 16:25 Posted in Before the wedding 0 4

Hi Friends!

My parents are hosting a couple's shower for my fiance and I at the end of June. The theme is "I do bbq". Decor is not my mom's forte, so she was kinda asking what we wanted. When I google for ideas, I'm hit with over the top red and white gingham kind of bbq/picnic decor.

What are some ways we can make this look more chic, but still a pretty casual backyard bbq? I wanted to put up string lights, but that's kind of pointless for a mid-afternoon party. Pretty sure the bridal party is going to spearhead the decor, so it would be nice to give them some pictures for suggestions.

Also, my mom went a bought paper plates and napkins from costco which are this super loud floral pattern, so if it works with that, bonus!

    Depending on the super loud floral pattern, you could pair it with a Hawaiian Luau theme (Palm tree leave s, Hibiscus flowers, tropical drinks, etc.).

    If you're looking for something more shower/wedding themed, like Tori said get some balloons/decor with the engaged/bride theme.

    Totally check out stores like party city or something along that line and focus more on the I Do part than bbq theme.

    Hi Kelly,

    Since your mom already purchased some utensils that have a loud floral pattern. Perhaps you can have a colorful theme? I was thinking maybe a couple bunches balloons with the same color palette as the florals and maybe have some drinks that go with it? See link for some picture ideas I found on this site. You can probably find a bunch of this stuff on etsy, amazon or I definitely know Target sells them but they are in the USA.

    What about getting some balloons to make it look all engagement party-ish? Like perhaps the engagement ring balloon:

    or you could try the Love balloon:

    You could also see what there is at PartyStuff or PartyCity?
