It’s candy cane season and if you have a peppermint loving bride, then today’s theme is perfect! We’re sharing our tips on how to throw a candy cane wedding shower.
When throwing a candy cane wedding shower, it’s all about the red and white stripes. Use stripes where you can in your decor to pull off this peppermint theme.
Line the tables with red or red and white striped table runners to create a base for the centerpieces and place settings. Then mix in stripes wherever you can in the centerpieces. Red and white florals with sprigs of green branches look wonderful with striped Christmas bulbs sprinkled in, and striped ribbon tied on bows looks lovely on each guests’ chair.
Red and white striped linen napkins paired with white china will be the perfect extra special touch for your tables – your shower will look like a candy cane wonderland!
Plenty of Peppermint
What’s a candy cane wedding shower without peppermint? Try to incorporate this minty treat into your wedding shower menu.
Keep the menu simple with just some sweets to snack on. Stacks of peppermint-dipped chocolate cookies tied with red and white bakers twine is a sweet way to treat each guest, and a candy cane cake is a beautiful dessert and stands out on a white cake plate.
Set up a hot cocoa bar where guests can create their own cocoa concoctions, and make sure peppermint is a flavor they can choose from! Use candy canes as drink stirrers, and have plenty of marshmallows and toppings for guests to add to their hot cocoa. The bride-to-be and the guests will definitely satisfy their sweet tooth at this candy cane wedding shower!
A Little Sparkle
Add a little sparkle to your candy cane wedding shower with a touch of silvery glitter here and there that will make the whole theme look like a peppermint winter wonderland.
Of course, the decor won’t be the only thing with a little sparkle – the bride to be is sure to be shining once she sees the thoughtful shower you pulled together for her.
Adding a little sparkle is easy – a few touches of shimmer here and there can go a long way! Silver glitter coasters are a great way to make your table shine. Place one at each seat for the guests to use throughout the party.
Shimmering silver tealights are another way to add some glimmer. Sprinkle them in throughout the centerpieces and treat tables, light them up and watch your space shine.
A candy cane wedding shower is a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season and the bride and groom’s upcoming wedding day.
