Kitchen Bridal Shower Invitations + Ideas – Ask EB

We love hearing from our brides… and their moms, too! When Susan wrote to us about her daughter’s bridal shower, we swooped right in with inspiration. She’s planning a kitchen themed bridal shower, but was having trouble finding the perfect invites with a more modern feel. To help, we found kitchen bridal shower invitations with matching recipe cards for guests to fill out and bring to the party. Once we found those, it was easy to piece together some additional ideas. Check out the invitations by Lucy Loves Paper and see what else we found including a state cutting board, apron, personalized rolling pin (ahh, I want one of these), a recipe box, cookbook, and favors. Which of these finds do you love best? Besides those invites, I’m crazy over that apron… it’s darling!

Easy (+ Cute!) Nail Polish Bridal Shower Favors

One of our favorite bridal shower favor ideas is nail polish. Why? Nail polish is universally adored and appreciated by women, and one can never have too many polishes (similar to shoes). It’s also a customizable favor, with hundreds of shades available right at your fingertips from which to choose (so coordinating with your color palette is a breeze). It’s also a truly functional gift, so you know your recipients will use it. So, how do you make your nail polish bridal shower favors even cuter? Add a handmade tag, of course! We spotted this tag over at Print Smitten and Tara paired two insanely pretty polishes with it. They’re both from Essie, and if you know me, you know I heart Essie brand polish. It’s just sooo shiny and lasts!

The tags are really cute + customizable, too! You can even choose a favorite style of twine or ribbon.

I found these polishes that I’m pretty sure are the correct colors. The minty-green one is called Turquoise and Caicos and the coral-y one is called Haute in the Heat:

Why Bridesmaids Need These Foldable Wedding Flats

Brides: do you have a pair of foldable wedding flats yet, ready-to-go in your purse? You should. Your bridesmaids should, too. Today we’re introducing you to Talaria Flats, your new BFF on the dance floor. And on the drive home. And on the honeymoon. Come to think of it, you’ll probably live in these foldable flats as much as you do yoga pants. Hey, we get it. Read on to find out more about these wonderful foldable flats…

Foldable Flats for your Wedding

Talaria Flats (pronounced tuh-LAH-ree-uh) began when its CEO and founder, Ingrid Miskinis, wanted to solve a problem. She would attend events with friends, each of them wearing fashionable high heels. But by the end of the night, they’d be dancing in their bare feet since their feet would be hurting from their heels. But it occurred to her that by the end of the night, they were all barefoot on the dance floor. Ingrid thought, “Why not create an affordable, foldable ballet flat that they could wear to keep dancing the night away? And so began Talaria Flats.”

We love when products are created to solve a problem! And now you can keep you dancing all night long at your wedding. Your bridesmaids will, too, which means they will be there to support your Cha-Cha-Sliding and Hustling and busting a move, like best friends should.

How are Talaria Flats different?

You’ve probably seen foldable flats in the past, but Talaria Flats are different: they’re fashionable, affordable, and they boast incredible reviews. For instance, this review came from real bride, Ashley, who adds that they’re “way cuter than flip flops“. (We have to agree!)

I absolutely loved having Talaria Flats at my wedding this summer! My bridesmaids and I were so thankful we had these… we were able to carry our dance party into the early morning since our feet were comfortable! I highly recommend these shoes to every bride to give as gifts to bridesmaids and / or guests (and they’re way cuter than flip flops)!” (via WeddingWire)

What colors do they come in?

Talaria Flats are available in black, champagne, or white.

You don’t have to stop at gifting these to bridesmaids, either! Grab a pair for yourself and offer the event box to guests. The women dancing at your reception will be oh-so-grateful.
