Planning A Peacock Bridal Shower
Ideas for invitations, decor and more!
Plan from the start to incorporate vibrant jewel tones in addition to an image or real Peacock feathers. The peacock, revered for its beauty, also symbolizes wealth, knowledge and royalty. As important as the feathers or bird are to a Peacock themed bridal shower, so is using one or more of the rich, brilliant colors of bright green, shades of blue, purple and gold found in the bird’s plume.
Set the stage with your invitations: Introduce your guests to the bridal shower theme from the start by including a feather (real or just an image) or a peacock with full plumage on the invitations.
Decor: We love pairing beautiful fresh flowers with real peacock feathers. They can be inexpensively purchased from craft stores or in bulk online. Tie the vase with a sumptuous satin ribbon in one of the colors in your color scheme. Look into renting inexpensive chair covers (from rental service or disposable covers online) and then tie with beautiful fabric bows in an accent color.
Dessert Bar: There are many ways to incorporate this theme into a dessert bar. One is simply to have small cards made up with a peacock theme that state what each item is. Another it to include the bright, rich colors into frosting (cookies, cakes and cupcakes) by tinting frosting and/or finishing with decorator sugasr (available in a wide range of colors) or sprinkles. You can also wrap cupcakes in peacock cupcake wrappers for a beautiful look. Need more inspiration? Simply go to Google.com/images and type in “Peacock cakes” (or “cupcakes”).
