Houndstooth, or Hounds Tooth or even Puppytooth, when it's seen on a much smaller scale, is extremely popular and trendy this Fall. It's not just for fashionable clothing either, you can find Houndstooth checks on just about everything right now and that includes invitations for her/your/the bridal shower.
If you're not sure what I'm talking about, Houndstooth is the name of a textile pattern design which features broken checkerboard shapes. It originated in the Scottish Lowlands and it's believed that it first became fashionable for men's suits somewhere around 1933.
In the past, it's always been most popular as a simple black and white color combination but has grown to include any colors of the rainbow you can imagine.
Our invitations reflect that rainbow of color choices so if the bride-to-be is strutting her Houndstooth this year, she can have her favorite pattern on invites in colors to match her bridal party.

You can supply fun party stickers for the guests who haven't any Houndstooth to wear or simply ask them to only wear the colors in your chosen design such as making it an only black and white affair.
Stickers are a fun way to dress up other things at the shower as well.
Use them on the party favors or use two stickers with a tooth pick stuck inside (leave a bit ot the toothpick sticking out) to create your own custom cupcake picks.
How cute would that be on the dessert table?

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.
