Penthouse Level Cocktail Chic Bridal Shower
A bride who defines her style with vogueish sophistication will no doubt adore being treated by her favorite ladies to a penthouse level cocktail chic bridal shower high above the city skyline. This pretty little soiree has guests helping the bride choose her signature cocktail with a custom tasting. Then allows those same besties to leave their well wishes on mad lib cocktail coasters for the bride to enjoy later.

It’s a memento that leaves plenty of room for treasured memories from this special time. So what’s the down and dirty 1-10 tips for a chic bridal shower? Let’s dive in.
Theme + Decor
First and foremost, to get the planning started, you need a style. When deciding on a theme, it should reflect the bride-to-be and her personal passions and preferences. Does she love all things French? How about a chic Parisian tea party? Do we have a brunch lovin’ babe? Pour those mimosas and let bright colors inspire you! If the evening hour is her time of day and easier to coordinate around busy daytime schedules think about a accommodating to a cocktails and nosh fete.
Let the theme continue to inspire your planning – even with the cuisine. Is it a sit down meal or are apps enough? What are the bride-to-be’s favorite bites? Always plan for a bit more food than you think you’ll need – unwrapping gifts makes all ladies hungry!
We’ve seen the gamut here from some odd favors in the past and we’ve seen some super cute ones. The winners? The ones that remind you of the fun afternoon you had toasting your girlfriend. Those that stick with a theme and are often an item that can be continued to be used well after the fete – or a tasty treat that was quickly devoured!
While some games can lean more on the side of awkward and uncomfortable, we’re fans of some sort of activity for guests to partake it when they aren’t eating or watching the lady of the hour unwrap presents. You can’t go wrong with simple, sweet games that still center on the theme. Example: For a foodie shower, guessing different spices by scent alone.
It’s the day of and you’re setting everything up – don’t forget that all so important spot for gifts! And remember, many registry items are LARGE so make sure this space can accommodate!
Coat Check + Handbag Hot Spot
With all the ladies arriving anytime, there’s one other area to prep. Because these ladies aren’t arriving alone – in addition to the gorgeous gifts, they’ll be toting their own handbags and maybe even coats, umbrellas and boots – don’t’ let these items ruin your decor – have a spot specially designated to keep all possible outerwear out of the way.
Picture Perfect Spot
It’s time to pop the bottles and enjoy! Scope out some great spots for pics that avoid any backlighting or distractions so that your BFF can ensure some high quality photos to remember all the fun.
And along those lines… with everyone snapping cute shots, sharing and posting, it’s not too early to give that wedding hashtag a little practice. Or tweak it a bit and use it just for the bride’s shower and bachelorette!
