A perfect time of year to think of the newly wed couple’s "first" holiday season together when they trim their Christmas Tree, decorate their house for Kwanzaa or celebrate Hanukah. If you shower is before Thanksgiving, add this to the list of gift ideas.
This Ornament/Decoration Shower can be combined with a Cookie Exchange, hot chocolate, mulled wine or cider and lots of holiday music. Don’t forget some potpourri on the stove and to make your house seem cheery for the holidays, put some butter, cinnamon and sugar in a 200-degree oven. When your guests arrive, they’ll think of Home Sweet Home from their childhood!
Guests can bring anything that is a seasonal decoration, and these can be hand-created or purchased.
When an ornament or similar decoration is unwrapped, use florist wire and add it to a Wreath that will go home with the bride-to-be.
Besides ornaments, other gift ideas include Christmas ball hooks, tree lights, tree stand, storage boxes, candy canes, garlands, tree skirt (this is a great hand-crafted gift), bread dough ornaments, tinsel, etc.
While November and December are perfect months for this type of bridal shower, JULY is a wonderful month to bring the holidays into your summer party!
