Farmer’s Market Bridal Shower Ideas


With the whole foods movement having a major moment, I thought it’d be appropriate to highlight some ways to incorporate the farmer’s market vibe into a bridal shower. A farmer’s market or food-to-table theme is perfect for the foodie bride who loves fresh, local finds and seasonal produce. When putting together this theme, think rustic, homegrown, and au natural. Visit a local farmer’s market to get inspiration and find everything you need to create a mouthwatering menu.

The Decor

It’s all about rustic charm and the sweet simplicity of nature. Decorate with fruits and vegetables, fresh flowers picked from the market, baskets, watering cans, planters, barrels, branches, burlap, candles, lanterns, rusted pots, weathered tables and chairs, and just about anything you can find in the great outdoors. If you want to arrange your own market flowers, here’s some good advice on putting together the spring blooms you might find.

The Food

If you’re putting together the menu, you’ll definitely want to use items you find at the farmer’s market. If not, consider taking the girls to a pick-your-own farm where they can pick berries/flowers/herbs and then have lunch at the farm or at a farm-to-table restaurant.




The Favors

Make it fresh! Make it homemade! Play off the farmer’s market theme by offering guests tote bags they can fill with fruits, flowers, or veg. Or gift them seed packets, planters, or a homemade jar of honey or jam.
