If you are going to get hitched, you are probably planning some wedding-related parties, and one of them is a bridal shower. A bridal shower is a nice way to meet your gals before you tie the knot, play, have fun, eat and drink and talk, of course. If you are considering themes and styles for a bridal shower, I have a brilliant idea for you – go for a rustic one! Rustic theme is very budget-friendly, cozy and welcoming – that’s exactly what we need for a bridal party! Let’s see how to pull it off right.
The table décor for a rustic bridal shower is to be relaxed and cozy, nothing formal is needed here. Rustic tables with burlap and greenery runners, with baby’s breath centerpieces and wood slices instead of chargers is right what you need. As for centerpieces, any wildflowers or some simple garden blooms will do, add greenery and put them into jars or tin cans wrapped with burlap. A watering can is another cool idea for creating a rustic centerpiece.

Displaying And Serving
For a rustic bridal shower, you can go for a waffle, s’more, popcorn and different dessert bars. Create what you like and what makes you feel comfy, if you love burgers – just go for such a bar! To give your bars and stations a rustic feel, you can display food on wooden tables decorated with greenery, display cupcakes on metal stands with flowers, they will look adorable. Crates and wooden baskets are among the coolest ways to display your food and drinks with a rustic feel.
