So, my Maid/Matron of Honor had decided to throw me a backyard bridal shower with the theme of “Under the Tuscan Sun”! I absolutely LOVE the theme and it is so me!
We will be having the shower in my parents backyard under a beautiful whit tent. There will be sunflowers, an italian menu with wine & cheese, my favourite pizzas, rustic accents, with yellows, reds and oranges!
I am also going to setup a really cool wooden trellis with vines and fake grapes and sunflowers all intertwined… I will then have some cute vintage looking sun hats and have the ladies take pics together with new SLR camera that will be set=up on a tripod! Then for my thank you cards I am going to send the picstures to the ladies that they are in!
Now, I’m stuck on the favours… Obviously I want it to go with the theme, so we thoughts of… A set of cheese spreaders, corkscrews, wine openers…
Can you guys think of anythign else that may work??

I got a favor at a similar event. It was an olive oil dispenser. Glass with purple grapes on it. I put diswahing soap in it. You might be able to find them at a dollar store

Mmmmmm what about little blocks of cheese with cheese toppers like fig compote? I’m all for edible gifts! Or italian cookies? Oh my gosh, I just did a google search and found “Italian wedding shower cookies“! It’s meant to be!

Could you have centerpieces in neat bottles with sunflowers and then allow your guests to take them home afterwards as favors?

What about engraved wine glasses? We wanted to do that for our wedding since we got married in at a vineyard, but it was kind of expensive for 200 guests. Assuming your shower doesn’t have that many people, I think that would make for a lovely favor!

I like the Italian cookie idea. What about an Italian cookie bar? If it is too costly, what about sending people home with a bag of assorted cookies? Just beware to attach ingredients in case of allergies or list the ingredients at the cookie bar.
