How To Host a Beautiful Backyard Bridal Shower

Hosting your bridal shower at home is a great way to add a personalized touch to the special event (and may even save you money, too)!

Everyone knows weddings are expensive, but until you plan one yourself,  you may not realize just how costly it really can be. In order to alleviate some of the sticker shock of the whole experience, hosting the bridal shower at your home can be easier on the wallet rather than renting out a restaurant or banquet hall. It also gives you the ability to really personalize the event since there are no rules when it comes to throwing parties at your own home! Here are some beautiful decor ideas for a backyard bridal shower:

Romantic Idea: Decorate neighborhood sidewalks with chalk then go for a walk with your sweetie to reveal your love notes/art.

Family "tree" at an outdoor wedding/shower. So cute. Could be heavy on wedding photos but doesn't have to be...
