This week, we’ve partnered with Basic Invite to bring you a bridal shower theme that your girlfriends will absolutely love. At Basic Invite, you can create truly custom invitations for weddings and celebratory events alike. We’ve taken a cue from their Lingerie Bridal Shower Invitations and come up with a few ideas that’ll make your gathering one to remember.
Let’s start with the invitations. We’re suckers for alliteration, so upon seeing Basic Invite’s customizable invitations, we’ve decided to run with a “Pancakes and Pajamas” theme. Hosting a bridal shower brunch just means you and your guests can nap off those mimosas afterward and, who doesn’t want that?! Tell your girlfriends to come in their favorite sleepwear or loungewear so that once they get home, they can head straight to the couch (hehe).
What’s on the menu? Pancakes, of course! Start with a big batch of fluffy, buttermilk pancakes. Then, allow your guests to customize their stack with fresh berries, chocolate and/or peanut butter chips, and—our personal favorite—flavored butters! For your friends with more of a savory craving, a charcuterie board is low-maintenance and the combinations are endless.
Gift your girlfriends with a couple of luxury sleep items. We love a silk eye mask and soothing pillow spray, like Spritz’s “Sweet Dreams Darling,” which blends lavender and chamomile . Then, follow up with one of Basic Invite’s Thank You Cards. You can choose from over 40 different colors of envelopes and even order a printed sample before you place your final order.
