Ideas for a Glitter and Sparkle Bridal Shower

Plan a party that shines as bright as the bride-to-be with a glitter and sparkle-themed bridal shower. Dazzle your party-goers with glitter, glitz, and glam, and make it a day or night to remember.  

Here are some glittery bridal shower ideas to spark your party planning:

Bubbly Bar: Set up a “bubbly bar” with champagne and carafes of various fruit juices, such as orange juice, pomegranate juice, pineapple juice, and more. Allow your guests to mix up their own fruity mimosa, or to simply stick with champagne. Decorate your bubbly bar with metallic balloons and glittery paper stars.  Make sure to rim the champagne glasses with edible glitter for an extra sparkly beverage.     


Let the Sparks Fly: Sparklers instantly make any photo op more fun and exciting. Designate a photographer, and offer your guests sparklers to light as the sun is setting. Gather the group, and capture the picture-perfect moment. 

Glitter Cupcakes: There’s only one way to make cupcakes and cake even tastier- by adding edible glitter, of course! Bedazzle your desserts with shimmery edible glitter made from table sugar.
