Many destination weddings take place on sandy beaches. It’s romantic, it’s picturesque, and most importantly, it is memorable. Particularly for couples who love the ocean side. For beach loving couples, why not pull out all the stops and throw a beach themed bridal shower as the perfect pre-wedding party?

Planning a beach themed bridal shower is no easy task, but with a little creativity and help from a few co-hosts, anyone can pull it off. Here are some creative ideas to get you started!

Plan Ahead

A theme party requires a bit more planning than a non-themed party. There are more details to consider and pieces to pull together.

Setting the Mood

The ideal venue for a beach theme bridal shower is somewhere with a swimming pool. Decorations are key when you’re trying to recreate a beach atmosphere. One way to bring the beach feel to your poolside venue is by stringing paper lanterns around the pool. This creates a festive mood and serves as soft lighting after sunset.

If you can’t go to the beach, you can still bring the beach to you. Hang netted sacks with seashells and candles, and fill an inflatable wading pool with sand and prop a surfboard inside and set it by the entrance. Pull up some beach chairs for seating and drape colorful beach towels on the chair backs.

Centerpieces can be paper lanterns with votive candles inside surrounded by sand and seashells to carry the theme through. You can also place small fishbowl with fish on every table. This will surely become a conversation piece for the guests.

For even more beach fun, request that guests come in their beach wear! Now it’s a beach party!

Beach Themed Favors

To thank your guests for coming to the bridal shower, party favors are essential. Needless to say, favors should also be beach themed. You can give seashell tea light candles, starfish wine bottle stoppers, or a decorative seashell picture frame. For a great beach themed gift, stuff a straw bag, or beach tote with an embroidered beach towel, some personalized sunscreen and a hand fan. This custom beach kit is sure to be a hit!

Benefits of Hiring Pamper Perfect Mobile Spa

Mobile spa companies offer on-site beauty and relaxation treatments that can be given to an individual or a large group. Often, this company will be utilized to enhance an event by offering guests an opportunity to engage in a beauty treatment on the spot. Although the services offered by the company may differ, they generally offer a variety of services that include massage, manicures and makeup application. In today’s fast-paced workplace and hectic social world, a mobile spa is a welcome source of entertainment at a variety of events that can offer significant benefits to corporate and personal event planners.

Events that Benefit
Pamper Perfect Mobile Spa can be utilized to add an interesting element to any event. Large companies are now beginning to hire mobile spa companies to offer their employees a way to relax in order to increase creativity and production. Smaller companies, such as schools and city services, are beginning to hire a mobile spa company to provide a way to show appreciation to their employees for special events. Smaller events, such as weddings and birthdays, are also a great reason to hire a mobile spa company so that each guest can feel honored to be a part of the special day. For weddings, many brides choose to use a mobile spa to help their wedding party get dressed for the big event.

Services Offered
There are many types of services that are offered. However, facials and massage are the most popular services requested. This is due to the large amount of people who can benefit from the relaxation and pain relief that a treatment can offer. When a person hires a mobile spa for their event, they receive a versatile service that can be tailored to any type of occasion. For example, a mobile spa can create a romantic atmosphere for a couples massage or they can offer employees an outdoor package within a casual environment.

Public Appreciation
When a person chooses to hire a spa for their event, they are able to show their guests that they are appreciated. For this reason, spas are utilized by companies who would like to recognize their employees by providing them with a relaxing incentive. Additionally, mobile spas can be used for bachelorette parties, reunions and other gatherings where a person wants to pamper their guests and make them feel special. When it comes to showing appreciation, there are few better ways than to offer a person a relaxing retreat that provides instant gratification.

Generate Social Media Interest
Any event that has a mobile spa is sure to generate a great deal of social media interest as guests post photos of their spa treatments. This is most beneficial for companies who can maximize their exposure through authentic posts created by satisfied employees and other guests. Because everyone will love to brag about their massage, a brand will receive exposure through each person’s social media page.
The benefits of hiring Pamper Perfect Mobile Spa for an event go much further than one simple beauty treatment. As guests begin to relax, the event will also benefit from a conversational atmosphere that can lead to many wonderful memories. In addition to relaxing, each guest will feel pampered and will generate a positive response that can make any event stand out from the rest.

8 Excitng Bridal Shower Games Your Guests Will Love

We found this great article on Inside Weddings and had to share!
From classics like The Newlywed Game to purse raids, get ideas for your wedding shower.

Bridal showers offer an opportunity for friends and family to celebrate the bride-to-be and “shower” her with gifts or advice. While the bride will certainly know everyone in attendance, her guests may not know each other – and nothing bonds guests quite like a common love for the bride, as well as fun bridal shower games and activities.

Fortunately, there are several bridal shower games that will start the party and encourage loved ones to engage with one another. Despite the different types of personalities in your group of guests, the following games and activities will keep attendees laughing with each other throughout the event.

Consider adding some of the bridal shower games, below, to the schedule of the day in order to plan a fun bridal shower that will be enjoyed by guests of all ages.

1. Funny Notes or Advice on Jenga Blocks
Jenga game at bridal shower
Encourage guests to leave wedding advice or funny notes on Jenga blocks. The bride and her beloved will enjoy reading the messages later and will be delightfully surprised when discovering what each guest wrote.

2. The Ring Pop Game
Bridal shower ring pop game
Ask your guests to wear one Ring Pop at the beginning of the event, and let them know to refrain from saying “bride” or “wedding” throughout the day. If a guest says one of those two keywords, the person who heard it first should take the ring from the guest who broke the rule. At the end of the shower, the person with the most rings wins a prize… and several Ring Pops!

3. Bridal Shower Trivia

Create a quiz including questions recalling anecdotes or characteristics of the bride-to-be or couple. Bridal shower attendees can circle their answers as the bride reads the questions aloud. The guest who answers the most questions correctly will win a prize.

4. Advice Cards
Advice card bridal shower activity
Provide guests with themed advice cards, so they can share wise and loving words with the bride-to-be. Guests will enjoy the chance to offer some words of wisdom and appreciate your interest in learning what they have to say.

5. The Purse Raid
Gold YSL wedding clutch on table
Create a list of items one may have in their purse, such as bobby pins, blush, or even risqué items, if you wish. At the bridal shower, the host will announce the items on the list one by one and will give a prize to the guest who pulls the corresponding item out of their purse first. Not only will it be fun competing with each other, but it will be interesting to see what everyone carries in their bags.

6. Photobooth Fun
Black and white stripe photo booth background
Provide a pretty backdrop for a group photo, which will make everyone feel included on the occasion.

Photo booth props on sticks
Make the event memorable by providing guests with themed props to use while taking photos at a photo booth. A variety of props will encourage guests to trade and interact with each other while posing for the camera.

7. “Don’t Say Bride” Drinking Game
Make it a rule that guests should take a sip of their beverage every time they say, “bride.” This game will keep guests attentive and engaged throughout the event. Provide alcoholic beverages such Champagne or signature cocktails for guests who would like to drink, and offer some non-alcoholic options as well. Cheers!
8. The Newlywed Game

Have a friend gather a list of relationship-centered questions, such as “What is your fiancé’s guilty pleasure?” and “Who takes longer to get ready?” Ask the host to interview and note your fiancé’s responses before the event. At the wedding shower, the bride-to-be will be interviewed in the hot seat and guests will compare the couple’s answers. Ask guests to take their stab at the questions for some added fun!

2015 Mani Cams…..And The Winner IS!

The Oscars had NO mani Cam this year. I’m suspecting it had something to do with this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards when Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston made headlines, of a sort, by taking the revolutionary step of refusing to stick their paws in E!’s Mani Cam or maybe because Jena Malone stuck her tongue out at it and Elisabeth Moss gave it the finger.  Baaaa humbug!  It still doesn’t stop the idea of the red carpet is like a beauty contest and nails are no exception to the viewers. Just like you we were keeping an eye out for the nails as a part of the  fashion and beauty trends.  The results are in and the winner is…….light nails and underside colors were what stars preferred at the Oscars! These were some of Pamper Perfects favorites!

Jennifer Lopez~A nude, elongated nail with rose-gold under the free edge to compliment the warm, beachy tones in her Elie Saab beaded gown.

Emma Stone~A light-peach, semi-opaque nail perfectly flows with her warm complexion and light-green gown.

Lady Gaga~Even under those red gloves, I knew she had a perfect mani! Glad we got to see them (and more Alaïa!) as the night went on.

Kerry Washington~The flash of pinky-champagne lacquer reflected against her white gown beautifully.

Lupita Nyong’o~A champagne pearl nail with a Swarovski crystal on the flip side of each nail perfectly combines with her hand-sewn Calvin Klein pearl gown.

So!  Who were your faves?  Are you going to try a nude for old mani cam sake?

❤Pirgin~ Pork Roast ~& ~Perfect Party Hostess

When everyone else was having Mother’s Day Brunch, Pamper Perfect Mobile Spa was on the scene creating the Perfect Experience for a lovely group of ladies not only celebrating Mothers Day, but a very special birthday.  Jenn wanted to treat her mother-in-law Vicki, two sister-in laws Vicki and Jen, and her niece Gianna, to a relaxing spa day.  This was one of our faves this past week! We laughed together, cried together and were honored to celebrate with them. “If you don’t want to do them thats fine….I’ve never done this before”, MIL Vicki expressed quietly before we got started.  She had never had a Pedi…what we call a Pirgin! or Pedicure Virgin.  Well needless to say by the time we were done she was sitting back relaxing, agreed to a bright ‘Tropix’ Vinylux mani and sipped her cocktail amazed at how quickly her nails dried. “I have new feet!” she said with smiles. Jenn’s husband Matt was ever so attentive to his leading ladies, hustling in and out to serve and to give updates on his pork roast recipe.  We had the ladies done just in time for dinner!  Jenn was an amazing Pamper Perfect Hostess with everything just right.  She creatively had all the components to have a great party.  With a few drinks, scrumptious appetizers, party decor, fresh flowers and gifts for her guests, WE couldn’t have done it without her. Even the boys wanted pedis! 

Please like and share our post with family, followers and friends and especially any Pirgins you know! We would love to be their first in the comfort of their own home or location.
