An inexpensive way to create a beautiful and striking ambiance is with gossamer material. Choose either a bridal white or the colors of the wedding and simply drape the fabric over tables, tie bows on the backs of the chairs, swag it across a mantle, wrap it around pillars, and hang it from the ceiling. To add to this extraordinary look, place twinkle lights under the lightweight fabric for an ethereal glow.
Place pictures of the bride and her groom around the room. Make collages of them as babies and young adults. Be sure to include a collection of pictures of them together doing shared activities.
Don’t underestimate the power of balloons even for a more formal setting such as a bridal shower. For bridal elegance, you may want to consider using only a white and silver combination of balloons. Tie curling ribbon onto each balloon and hang them from the ceiling at varying heights.
Large bouquets of fresh flowers are a beautiful addition to your décor. You can have them arranged using the colors of the wedding, or an assortment of brightly colored flowers in season is exceptionally nice.
Place a white parasol on the floor next to the bride’s chair. To “shower the bride” with gifts, have your guests place their packages under the umbrella as they arrive.

If you don’t have access to enough fine linens for your tables, gossamer is again an excellent choice. You can put this over the top of a colored cloth for extra dimension. In addition, if you don’t have enough good china to serve all of your guests, plastic tableware is perfectly acceptable as a great alternative.
For your centerpieces, we suggest one of the following options.
You can continue with the fresh flower suggestion and have a large arrangement at each table. Purchase a beautiful bridal centerpiece.
Use framed pictures of the bride on each table. Place the pictures on a bed of greens or colored shred.
Place a variety of candles on your tables varying the height of each one for the most appealing look. A small piece of gossamer tied in a bow on pillar candles really top off the look.
Use your food as a centerpiece. Place large upside down buckets and paint cans of various sizes under your tablecloth. Place your food on beautiful serving pieces and place them on top of the makeshift platforms. Sprinkle silk rose petals between dishes. A sweet stations are also great for this purpose.
