I had asked my sister-in-law if we could throw her and her future husband a couples’ wedding shower. Sometimes it can be difficult to come up with couples’ shower ideas, especially a theme. I wanted to try and find a happy medium where the future bride and groom didn’t feel like the party theme was geared more towards one than the other. After talking with her about it, she thought a BBQ theme would be perfect and I couldn’t have agreed more! I used Pear Tree Greetings’ I Do BBQ Bridal Shower Invitations to set the theme.
As guests walked into the front entrance, they were greeted by pictures of the happy couple, strung with twine, across an old six panel door. This is a great way to incorporate the couple’s engagement photos that are rarely seen by friends and family.
Wondering what’s hot on Pinterest from Pear Tree Greetings? Take a peek below to see our top pinned products and ideas!
1. Halloween Food Ideas: These chattering teeth make a perfect snack for any Halloween party. They were featured in our Halloween office party and were a hit with all! See more Halloween food ideas or shop for Halloween invitations for your upcoming party.
2. Bridal Shower Ideas: Sweet treats are always a hit at bridal showers. These cookies and cake balls were featured in our Rustic + Elegant Bridal Shower Ideas. The initials on the cookies are such a cute touch for guests to see.
Bridal showers are an exciting time for the bride-to-be. She gets to be surrounded by her bridal party and guests before her big day. It’s also a great time to meet some of the friends and family members of the groom before you walk down the aisle. Pear Tree Greetings recently launched a new collection of bridal shower invitations that set the tone for your party. Here are five of our favorite bridal shower invitation ideas.

What better way to throw a bridal shower for our Marketing Communications Specialist, Dani, than to make it a surprise party and then blog about it!
While looking at our new bridal shower invitations, Dani had pointed out her favorite, so we used the Pink and Purple Bubbles Bridal Shower Invitation and the matching pieces as the inspiration for all of our bridal shower ideas.
We used the Pink and Purple Table Decor party decorations and made banners on the back of the chairs and scattered them on the table. We set the table with mis-matching plates and cloth napkins to give it a unique look.
Our new bridal shower decorations are chic, modern and versatile to use when planning a bridal shower for the soon to be Mrs. We put together our top 5 bridal shower decoration ideas using different versions of the table decor and gift tags from Pear Tree Greetings! But we’re always coming up with new ways to use these products, so don’t be surprised if we have a new ‘Top 5′ every week!
1. Centerpiece. This idea is featured in our Waffle Bar Couples Bridal Shower where the host used our Simple Strands Bridal Shower Decorations and paired it with these beautiful, yellow & white flowers to make this centerpiece idea. Very easy to do and makes a lasting impression on your guests.
2. Spruce up the Treats. Favors for guests aren’t expected at bridal showers, but it is a nice touch. This inexpensive idea was used in our Rustic Bridal Shower where the host baked cookies and attached these adorable Showers Ahead Favor Tags Bridal Shower Decorations. It’s a fun, added decoration that all guests can enjoy.
