I hope you enjoy my the tips below for creating the perfect rustic bridal shower ideas party.

Idea 1: Wow your Guests with an Eye-Catching Wine Barrel Dessert Table

My now husband and I had recently become wine club members so we went to our wine club and asked them if we could buy 2 old barrels from them. They said yes! They even decided to give them to us for free.

Then we had some old worn-out boards that I placed on top of the barrels to create our dessert table.

Idea 2: Impress Your Guests with a Galvanized Flower Stand

I found a galvanized letter of our soon to be initial of our new married name. The back side of the letter was open with no backside.

I then used floral styrofoam and then cut it to fit perfectly into the letter. I then took the floral styrofoam out and soaked that different pieces. I then placed the wet floral styrofoam back into the galvanized letter.

Next, I bought flowers and cut the stems to fit nicely into the floral styrofoam. I made this the day before my bridal shower and refrigerated it until the party.

I then used an old picture frame stand to hold the letter upright. I placed the letter on the stand and it was a little wobbly at first so I tied some twine around the letter securing it to the picture frame. You could also just leave the letter against a wall.

Idea 3: Have your Guests to Enjoy their Sweets in Style with a Galvanized Cupcake Stand

I love the look of this cupcake stand! It is a 3 tier stand that I used to hold the cupcakes. I also used cupcake holders and cute cupcake toothpick signs “I do”. I couldn’t find the same “I do” toothpicks, but I was able to find these beautiful gold heart toothpicks.
