Bridal Shower Inspiration

I am so thrilled  to welcome this november as one of my best friends is getting married this week. This is my first time to be a bridesmaid, so can you imagine I am overwhelmed with ideas of perfect wedding gift and look forward for holy matrimony, wedding day and also the bridal shower! All bridesmaids agree to host the bridal shower slash hen party slash bachelorette party. I will share how to prepare the bridal shower for the bride-to-be. No need wedding planner as you can do it alone with other bridesmaids. So, note it down:

– Pick the theme

You could have a fancy dining in restaurant, girls night out in pub/club, beach party, costume party or even a gateway to countryside in weekend. Whatever you fancy to do, it’s going to be a special night to remember!

– Mark the date and book the place

Make a reservations in advance before your favorite place is full booked. Bear in your mind how many people to invite, so you can have a private room in restaurant , VIP corner in pub/club, nice hotel in countryside.

– Get crazy in details

Girls love sweet little things- decorate the table with favorite colour palette and printables, hang the pretty garland and lantern, design place cards, coasters, bridal shower sign, napkins ring, and make it romantic with candles and flowers.

– Get attention in costumes

The point of this bridal shower is to get the bride-to-be in spotlight. So, dress your bride-to-be a sweet little princess, or nasty and sexy white dress, or spooky corpse bride, or crazy, quirky, ridiculous costume ever! Style the bride-to-be with tiara and veil, sash, wand, rosette badge, garter,  giant engagement ring, anything you can think of! Other guests can wear dress code to rock the night.

– Keepsakes

Give the bride-to-be something memorable to keep. Have a reminiscence with collage of old photos, give a personalised nasty lingerie,  flashback movie, testimonials card or board, friendship quote in a frame, friendship bracelets or something that mean a lot to all of you.

– Don’t forget to have fun! Camera is on!

Challenge your bride-to-be to dance in crowd, flirt with strangers, mimicking celebrity in action on stage, sing on table, give kiss marks on others, eat the thing that the bride-to-be hate, take off the garter with only mouth from stranger, anything wild and crazy! Warm the night by playing games and truth or dare. Here for some inspirations The knot, 10 hen party ideas, Hen Party Games.

Pain Perdu, the lost bread

Got some leftover bread or baguette? Better not to throw it away as you can turn it into a delicious recipe for your morning breakfast. Originally from France, Pain Perdu means ‘lost bread’, a stale bread is softened by dipping in a mixture of milk,eggs and sugar then pan-fried in butter.

This recipe is simple and easy. I bet you’ll find all ingredients in your kitchen. so, let’s start.

Feel free to print and stick to your wall!

First, you need to cut the bread ( I am using baguette this time) into approx 2cm slices.
