I am throwing a shower for my friend in October. She is Irish and her FI is English. The shower will be in the late afternoon, right before the bachelorette party.
I wanted to do something fun with their heritage. I was thinking like “British Invasion” or like an Austin Powers theme where everyone had to dress up 60s style. Other than that I am at a loss.
Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Maybe you could do a “compare/contrast” shower of different things popular in both cultures — food, sports, etc.?

I think it’s a super cute idea! I love dressing up, but keep in mind not everyone probably will – especially for a shower, as opposed to Halloween or something.
Maybe instead you could have everyone pick their favorite Brit (Victoria Beckham, Princess Diana, Margaret Thatcher, Elizabeth Hurley) and play some kind of game where you have to ask them questions and guess who they are. Or do a quiz with famous British/Scotish couples. And serve traditional English and Scotish foods (tea and crumpets!).

I’m not sure where this is happening, or how many people there are, but here are some ideas.
If she’s Irish and he’s English, you could have so much fun! Not sure if you are tea drinkers, but tea is so big in both of those countries, and would help you get caffeinated for the bachlorette party (Usually those are called Hen parties over across the pond) ! Or you could do Pints of Beer/Guiness.
If you need to eat before the bachelorette party, you could always have bangers and mash ( sausages or brats and mashed potatoes) or fish and chips, or kababs ( which are basically gyros) or Pasties. Or look online and you can see/ get all sorts of ideas.
Music could be Beatles/Steps (totally cheesy)/U2/ James Bond etc.
You could do something with thier flags, or something about their love crossing over the Irish Channel.
I’ll write again if anything pops in my head. Let me know how things come along! How exciting!
