Make the brides shower extra special by incorporating a theme. Whether you choose a garden party or a naughty lingerie theme, it will sure to make it one to remember.

Following are some great shower tea ideas.

1. Alphabet Party

Each guest is given a different letter of the alphabet and they bring a present starting with that letter.

2. Around The Clock Shower

Mark each invitations with a different time and have the guests bring something that you would use at that time! - Submitted by Anita Delaforce

3. Basket Showers

Everyone is designated a type of basket ie kitchen, romantic, entertainment, relaxation, bedroom etc. Guests then fill a basket full of goodies to match their given theme.

4. Bathroom Tea

All guests bring something for the bathroom, ie towels, hand towels, bath gels, soaps etc. This is better for smaller parties.

5. Barbecue Party

Guests bring gifts that are outdoor/barbeque related, from a picnic basket, salt & peppers shakers, to an outdoor setting. Guests can even come wearing their best apron!

6. Beautiful Tea

Much loved beauty products, makeup, gorgeous hair accessories and all things a bride would love and need.

7. Cellar Tea

This one always goes down well! Ask guests to bring a gift for the cellar, or something for the bar eg bottle openers, coasters etc. It is also the perfect time for wine tasting!

8. Garden Party

Have an afternoon tea in the back garden and have all the guests bring gifts that are garden related.
