Chocolate Lovers Bridal Shower

A Chocolate Lovers Bridal Shower is welcome any time of year. This theme works well with a small or large group. So, if your guest of honor is a chocoholic, this is a great idea.

Start with your invitations. Choose a design that relates to your theme, such a candy bar or sampler box.

Location: Indoors or out, the aroma will help create the atmosphere, so choose to accomodate the number of guests.

Decorations: solid metallic colors work well with this theme.
Gold and silver plates, napkins, and cups,
contrast nicely with the chocolate. Use this for paper goods, balloons and streamers. How about a chocolate fountain as a centerpiece?

Use choclate favors at each guest's place to enhance your theme.

bowls of candy
chocolate covered pretzels
