Welcome to WB!! Since it will be buffet style, why don’t you have a mix of summer foods. But gourmet style. Like mini burgers, sandwiches, salads etc. You can have appetizers as well. Mostly unique finger foods.

You can have a few different drinks, such as fresh squeezed lemonade and Iced Tea. For dessert cupcakes vs a big cake.

Can you set up some of the buffet inside and outside?

I used to be horrified by the thought of doing a ‘theme’, but honestly,its really the easiest way to put a shower together. Look around the internet for ‘shower themes/ideas’ and there’s a ton of ideas you can copy or modify.

My daughter’s shower last year was an ‘Around the Clock’ shower which I had never heard of before doing a search. I had the invitations made and randomly assigned times of the day to each guest. Registry information was included as a guide,and I was really impressed at how creative the guests were. We also had a ‘no wrapping’ gifts, but people used other things to hide their gifts and there was still plenty of bows. You can use any color for the invitations, cake,and decorations,but we used her wedding colors which were black,white & fuschia. Some of the times were Breakfast Time,Have Your Parents to Dinner Time,Stock the Bar Time, Party Time,etc She received a wide variety of gifts and it was really fun.

For this daughter’s shower,which is this Sunday,we’re doing a Blue Bling shower. Guests were asked to wrap their gifts in blue paper/bags, and we’re again using her wedding colors which are turquoise,ivory & silver. Centerpieces, candles,cake are all in those colors, and we’re serving Blue Hawaian drinks!

Look around,or walk around a party store for some inspiration. Good luck!
