Smart Ideas for A Book Themed Bridal Shower

Whether you’re a librarian, writer, bookseller, or you just really love reading, a book themed bridal shower is a must. After all, you should have a theme that fits your personality and interests. These are a few ideas that any bookworm will love!

Decorate With Book Pages

If you have some old or damaged books lying around (thrift stores are a treasure trove for this), you could use the pages for decorations. These paper flowers would stand out well on each girl’s place setting.

String paper heart garlands around the room to tie the theme into your wall decorations. Vintage books with slightly yellowed pages are a good choice for this.

Stack Books

Of course, nothing beats using actual books. Use a stack of books for each guest’s place setting. Make it fun by using books that match each girl’s personality or interests.

You can also use stacked books to give food and sweets some height.

Create A Theme Around A Story

Sure, you could go with a general book theme, but if the bride has a favorite book, tailor the shower to that novel. For instance, an Alice in Wonderland bridal shower pairs perfectly with a tea party theme.

Or maybe you’d like to go with an entire genre. A fairy tale bridal shower is a top choice because of the magical, romantic feel!
