Strawberry Bridal Shower Ideas

Strawberries are on my mind a lot lately, not only because my daughter loves them and I recently made pancakes for dinner that were topped with the red berries, but because my strawberry bridal shower invitations in my etsy shop have been a hit recently. Just this weekend I finished off two orders for upcoming strawberry themed bridal showers that will be using my invitations to announce the special day. And, this week, I'll be working on strawberry cupcake toppers to finish up another order.

So, since I've been seeing lots of strawberries lately, I thought I should put together a strawberry bridal shower inspiration board. Of course, a strawberry themed wedding would be equally amazing. After all - the bride and groom are "berry sweet together".
