Pink Bridal Shower Ideas and Decorations We Love

Lance Nicoll

If the bride's love for pink rivals that of Julia Roberts's character in the film Steel Magnolias, a pink-themed bridal shower is a sure way to seriously impress her. Not sold on a totally rosy party? That's okay, too. If you just want to celebrate the blushing bride with a hint of the color, we've rounded up subtle ways to incorporate the girly hue in styles that range from whimsical to super sophisticated. Whether you think she'll love hot pink, soft pastels, or a variety of saturated shades, there are so many ways to incorporate the fun, feminine color into her bridal shower décor.

Start things off with a pink invitation, then keep the theme going with decorations (balloons, banners, and other party store staples), bubbly, and dessert in the same pretty hue. Don't forget the dress code, which is an easy way to honor the chosen color palette. Ask everyone (including the guest-of-honor) to done shades of pink or even pink accessories to get in the spirit.

Flowers are another area where you can really go for it. If you're looking to add an activity other than classic games to the day, consider having a flower crown station. Poppy + Mint Floral Company provided a selection of blooms for this bride and her guests to assemble head pieces with. You could also setup a flower bar where guests arrange their favorites in a vase to take home at the end of the celebration. Last but not least, skip the DIY entirely and just decorate tables with bud vases of roses and ranunculus in the brightest pink hues you can find.

You're Invited

An ice cream social bridal shower sounds like a great way to celebrate the bride. Start things off with an invite that mimics a scoop of strawberry and tucks into an envelope lined with a pattern that looks like a waffle cone. Sincerely, Jackie created this one that reads "She got scooped up" and it's perfect and pink.

Dress Code

It's fun to give guests a dress code or color palette to stick to, and it makes the photos look that much more amazing. Ask your attendees to wear shades of soft pink as a nod to the bride's favorite hue.

Jakkelyn Iris Flowers created this dip-dyed table runner, which added the perfect pop of color. If you're not up for a DIY project, you can use fabric or crepe paper with touches of pink to achieve a similar look.

Christine Andrew of Hello Fashion dreamed up a bridal shower with one extra sweet touch: donuts topped with pale pink icing and "I do" piped on. That's what we would say if someone asked if we wanted to eat one of these treats by The Sweet Tooth Fairy.

Dressing the Part

There's no rule that says the bride has to wear white to her bridal shower. Find a dress (or separates) with pink floral accents to drive the day's theme home. If you can coordinate your look with a set of heart-shaped balloons (sourced here by Lindsey M. Events), then that's even better.

Wine-themed bridal showers have existed for a while, but the newest iteration is all about rosé. Kruse and Vieira Events worked with A Fabulous Fete to design this rosé tasting kit, which included a calligraphed card to write notes on. Tuck in supplies for making floral crowns and you have two activities that will no doubt win your guests over.

An Illustrated Bride

Order clear boxes filled with pink candy (these are from Sugarfina) so you can see the colorful treats inside. Then top them with an illustration of the bride seemingly sitting on the box. Darcy Miller drew this bride with an enlarged engagement ring for the occasion.

Pink napkins, cake pops, and ranunculus add subtle pops of color to a beautiful bridal shower table. But think about the space above, too. Here Lauryn Prattes Events hung tassels from BanziBalloons in a lovely combo of pinks, ivory, and gold.

On the Wall

Apotheca used an assortment of pink washi tapes to affix single stems to a whitewashed wall. This fabulous (and fragrant) idea is great because it won't take too long to install and it doesn't harm the walls.

A Painted Pink Floral Invite

A watercolor-style invitation, like this one by The Paper Lab, is a pretty way to invite guests to the event. Highlighting that it's a bridal shower (or the bride-to-be's name) in a matching coral pink emphasizes the intention of the gathering.

Tulip Centerpieces

Jana Williams

Pink tulips took centerstage in these bridal shower centerpieces. Mixed with ranunculus, garden roses, and peonies by Lillia Bello, they screamed springtime. In fact, pink posies (particularly tulips) would be a great bridal shower theme for spring.
