Hi!! I am throwing my Cousin a Bridal Shower at my home. There will be about 20 people in attendance and I’ll be having it on a Sunday for Brunch. My Husband and I just moved into a home about 6 months ago that was much larger than our last. We have some rooms throughout the home that don’t have furnuture and I’m a little embarrassed! I have a very large kitchen with a big kitchen island which will be perfect for arranging a Brunch buffet. However, I’m concerned about seating. Our living room can comfortably seat about 6 people. It’s a very large living room, but our furniture isn’t big enough to fit the space quite yet. Any suggestions? What was the layout like for any of you that have thrown a shower in your home before? Thanks!!

The easiest solution would be to rent more chairs/seating. If you’re going for a specific theme, there are many vintage couch rentals out there. If budget is a concern and you’re part of a church or community group, they may let you use their chairs.

marygrace35 : for the showers I helped throw, the layout was open, so some were at the kitchen table, others in the living room. Do you have friends or family that hosts often? Camp chairs and the like from them can be useful. A shower doesn’t have to look impeccable and I’m sure you’d prefer to put your money toward real furniture over rentals. Close the doors on any rooms you still feel are too empty (no one cares though). Of course if you are looking to appear perfect, you may choose to rent anyway, I just personally find it silly.

Rent or borrow folding chairs and or tables. There’s absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about. No one will judge you for not being fully furnished after 6 months or much longer for that matter.

I have a stack of these I have bought specifically for parties. Think I have about 10 and they just stay in storage when not needed.

I just went to a bridal shower hosted at a friends home, they rented white folding chairs and it worked out great!
