Shabby Chic

'Tis the season of giving - shower giving that is. If you're the lucky girl chosen as the maid of honor, traditionally, one of your duties is planning the bridal shower, but fret not dear MOH, throwing a memorable and fun party is a piece of cake!

Take these pretty place settings from Country Home and Garden that lend a shabby chic quality to the party.

Showers are usually held during the morning or afternoon and to help balance the informality of the event, consider using bright splashes of colors for a decidedly feminine vibe.

Holding the shower at your favorite restaurant helps cut down on the costs, but may limit your design choices. Keep in mind color, flowers and decor should reflect the bride's personality so don't be afraid to get creative.

And of course make sure all attending guests know where the bride is registered because after all everyone is there to shower presents upon her. Don't forget, the purpose of the shower is to receive gifts, and planning the event is a gift in itself!
