My sister and I through our other sister a garden themed bridal shower. I painted terra cotta flower pots for the centerpieces (made them in pastel colors and painted bees, lady bugs and dragon flies on them). We filled them with either potted flowers or garden tools and they doubled as the prizes. For favors, we bought a flat of flowers and potted one for each person in a little pot. We made little plant markers for them that had the couple’s name and the wedding date.
We had other small prizes all wrapped up for some games and displayed them in a real wheel barrel (the couple got to take it home)
I think overall, garden themes are pretty easy — just have lots of flowers!

My mom mentioned that she went to one and it was very cute! I agree with the flower themes and as door prizes you could give gardening gloves. If you are looking for more of a garden tea party, you can serve tea and have white gloves for all the guests. I threw a tea party shower so if you are leaning towards this theme, let me know!

@Erindesmar my shower will be a tea party theme, though I will not be planning it I would love to hear your ideas that I can pass along to my girls.

Oh we had a fabulous time! The bride was moving to England after her wedding, hence the theme. It was plaid and tea party everywhere!
My bride’s grandma collected teacups. So, we borrowed about 30 teacups from her for decoration/drinking. The MOB’s friend, who was a work friend and not invited to the wedding, came to the shower and served tea.
I got ceramic teapots from Christmas Tree Shops and filled them with flowers for centerpieces. We had "tea" food – ie, little tea sandwiches for food and lots of desserts.
For favors, we found little teapot/teacup ornaments (again, I think at Christmas Tree Shops) and took an organza bag and tied it to the ornament. Inside the bag was a teabag (with a little personalized tag), a candy lemon wedge, a honey stick, and a mini chocolate covered spoon). They were enormous hits!
If I think of anything else we did, I will let you know!
