A Traveling Shower…

with one comment

…For The Travel Loving Couple!

If your favorite couple is getting hitched and they’re lovers of not only each other but of travel as well, get creative and throw them a travel themed shower!  Instead of your typical shower invitation, send actual postcards to guests.  Write something clever or cute, such as, “Please join us in helping the couple travel their way into a happy marriage”.  Below are a few of my other ideas…

Think about using these lovely and inexpensive paper suitcases designed by Chicago’s own, Nicole Balch, of Pink Loves Brown for your decor needs!

Decorate the gift table with one paper suitcase each side, open up and use to display postcards from around the world, love letters, or pictures from the couples’ past vacations.  Maybe even visit a vintage store to purchase an old unworking camera to place inside.  Or, perhaps you could get funky and use the larger suitcase as a cake stand.  Now that’s fun!

Ask the bridesmaids to get together to help you make little paper airplanes to hang from the ceiling.  Or, for a more subtle touch think about making even smaller paper airplanes to stick into flower centerpieces!  Looking for affordable favors?  What if you printed out or designed luggage tags with some cute travel themed cardstock?  For fun you could throw paper airplanes at each other.  Just kidding.

After the shower is over, give the paper suitcases to the bride or away to a couple of guests to use as cool storage or home decor.  Thrifty!  What other ideas do you have for a travel themed shower?  Comment away, I’d love to hear.  As for now, be sure to visit Nicole’s blog, Making It Lovely, and shop Pink Loves Brown for even more beautiful inspiration.  Happy planning!
