How to Host a Bridal Shower | Wedding Ideas


Summer is here and so is wedding season! I have something new on the blog today – showing you how to throw a party that will include both the bride AND the groom!

We all know how in love our couples can be so sometimes it’s better to celebrate together than apart. Today, I will show you how to throw an awesome Jack and Jill Party.

Traditionally, we think about bachelor/bachelorette parties, bridal showers, and etc. But a coed get together doesn’t actually sound all too bad! Why? You can ensure all of your loved ones (both males and females) are with there to celebrate with you.

At the end of the day, it’s all about rethinking traditions so why not give this Jack and Jill Party a shot? Click read more to see how you can host your own shower!

How to host your own Jack and Jill Party:

1. Add a colorful flower backdrop

These are great for photos and it will definitely set the theme for the party. Double-side tapes worked amazing for these flower decors! It was simple for us to reposition the flowers and secure them to the wall.

If you want to learn how to make these DIY flowers, I’ve also created a step-by-step tutorial here. 



2. Include a drink station

Give your guest options with either tea or coffee. You can either use a single serve brewer like I used or get carafes with the appropriate caffeinated and non caffeinated drinks!


I also added other must-have drink alternatives—water and lemonade! P.S. how amazing does it look?!



3. Set up a DIY station

These are so fun and interactive! Eric enjoys coming up with the games and activities, so I thought..well, why not decorate the activity table with summer-themed flowers where the DIYs are held?!

DIY Idea #1: Date Suggestion Jar


We painted these popsicle sticks ourselves and listed creative date night activities on there!

Tip: Use chalkboard paint. It dries quickly and is great for reapplication!

4. Have a His & Hers mug drawing contest

Time to test out your creativity! This mug activity is great for bonding and keeps the guest feeling entertained throughout the event.

Best of luck and hope you have an amazing Jack n’ Jill Party! Have fun!!
