First, you must make your decorations, which should be feminine, delicate, and decadent. Decorate with florals like these Pretty Paper Lanterns and French Twist Fabric Flowers. Use Pretty Paper Pomanders as centerpieces. Finally, make DIY Party Bags for Macarons; you’ll need those for Step 2.
Bon appetit! Serve Midnight in Paris French Martinis alongside your main course, Blueberry Smoked Turkey Baguettes. For dessert, offer Floral Shower Cupcakes and Strawberry Macaron Flower Pops in the DIY Party Bags for Macarons from Step 1.
France is known for its high-end perfumes, so give the bridal shower guests some DIY Pretty Perfume Bottles filled with fragrance you mixed yourself. Learn How to Make Exfoliating Soap as well, and place it all in French Wedding Favor Bags as a luxuriant gift.
Begin your Parisian bridal shower with an activity that doubles as wedding prep! Your guests can learn How to Arrange Rose Centerpieces, and you can choose the best arrangement to make again for your wedding reception.
