Baking Themed Shower + Bridal Shower Bingo!

Baking Themed Bridal Shower by Paige Simple (1)

Baking + black and white stripes? My kind of bridal shower! I’m just tickled to share this darling Baking Themed Bridal Shower submitted by Kristin Austin of Paige Simple! Kristin styled and designed this shower for her sister who is getting married next weekend (Congrats!). The pops of pink flowers with the black/white/mint color scheme (also the bride’s wedding colors) is the perfect combination of classy and whimsical. The guests played “Bridal Shower BINGO” which is a new game to me (see the instructions below)! I love the idea! Read on for more pics + details from hostess Kristin!

HOW TO PLAY BRIDAL SHOWER BINGO

Each guest fills out a card with gifts they think the bride-to-be will receive. As she opens her gifts you mark off the boxes on your card until you complete BINGO (5 boxes in a row). Bottles of wine and the centerpieces were passed out as prizes to the first few guests who completed ‘BINGO’. GET THE FREE PRINTABLE BINGO CARDS + MORE

MORE PARTY DETAILS

“My sister is getting married in May and I have the pleasure of being her maid-of-honor so, of course, I had to throw her a top notch bridal shower! Her wedding colors are black, white, and mint so I wanted to incorporate those along with pink as an additional accent color. She also loves to bake, so a baking themed shower was an obvious choice.

When guests entered the venue they were greeted with a personalized gallery wrap canvas welcome sign, a dress form dolled up in a coordinating apron, and over-sized milk bottles filled with hot pink ranunculus flowers.

The dessert table was a mix of color coordinated baked goods including a fabulous two tiered ruffle cake that was inspired by the black and white striped aprons. Stacked mixing bowls filled with flowers added to the overall baking theme of the event. Each guest received a wooden spoon with a gift tag that read, ”Bake with love”. The table centerpieces were black ceramic kitchen utensil canisters filled with hot pink ranunculus flowers.” – Kristin of Paige Simple + FIND MORE RESOURCES + DETAILS HERE!
