Color Palette: cranberry red, evergreen and gold

Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday. Now, that the holiday season has officially started, I'm excited to get started with some holiday inspiration boards. I have quite a few already in progress. Today's board is for those planning a holiday themed bridal shower. The theme is accented with the use of cranberries as a decorative element.

One cute idea for a holiday bridal shower would be to have a Christmas tree on display {or one mini tree at each guest table} and have the guests bring an ornament to help decorate the couple's first tree. Guests can put the ornaments on the tree as they arrive.

Another idea is to have the bridal shower party be a dessert tea party. Each guest could bring along their favorite holiday cookie or dessert with the recipe for the bride to keep and add to her recipe box.
