Issue a warm welcome to the bride and her intended guests with a rustic French Country themed party..
French Country style is a pleasant mix of old-world vintage charm and rural garden flowers. It's earthy and fresh, yet elegant and shabby chic. In fact, we think it's what inspired the whole shabby chic trend in the first place.
Think lavender and ribbons tied into bows and sipping tea from a China cup on a Victorian porch. Perhaps the Eiffel Tower looms in the distance? Nothing is perfect but everything is perfectly organized.
A mix-match of colors that you might not have thought of together include foamy shades of green, brighter yellows and golds, rustic red and hints of all shades of blue, pink and lavender.

Pricing for these darlings will be determined by your choice of card stock. We have always used the basic and have been extremely pleased with it but you can try customizing with some of the others such as linen and felt to see if you like it better.
Bulk purchases will result in deep discounts but you can buy as few or as many as you like starting with just one in case you'd like to see a sample.
Make it a French Country Tea Party
An old-fashioned tea party with petite fortes, cakes and finger sandwiches would be delightful with this theme and if you do this be sure to use vintage tea cups.
An eclectic mix of designs would make it even more fun so have everyone in the bridal party bring their own set or stop by your local thrift store to see what's available for cheap. If you buy them, then you can give each guest their cup and saucer as a fun thank you favor at no additional cost.
Hold the party in a flower garden if the weather permits but this theme works well indoors as well. Just be sure to gather wildflowers, or buy some, for the table centerpieces and don't forget the linen tablecloths.
So what do you think? Would the bride-to-be love this or not so much? Have you been busy making plans?

The History of Bridal Showers
Did you know that the custom of throwing a bridal shower dates back to the time when dowries were popular? Friends of the woman to be wed began giving what is now known as a bridal shower to compensate women who came from poor families who couldn't afford a proper dowry, or for a woman whose father didn't approve of the marriage and refused to pay.
