One of my dearest friends was getting married so I wanted to plan something unique and original for her Bridal Shower. I chose a tropical party theme that matched the Bride-to-be’s outgoing and colorful personality. Inspiration was taken from the latest trends of the tropics. The party was very bold, fun and relaxed all at the same time and all the guests had a wonderful time!

A DIY drink bar always works well so guests can serve themselves which leaves more time for the host to mingle and relax . Tina’s Tropical Punch and poptails were served as our signature drink. A poptail, is basically a cocktail served with a popsicle to make for an extra refreshing treat. It makes for the perfect beverage for a summer party. Because of all their amazing tropical flavors the Poptails were served with Palm Coolers . The Mango-Pineapple and Raspberry-Passionfruit Flavored Vodka Sodas were served with a Mango Berry Pop and the Raspberry-Starfruit Iced Tea and Mango-Lemon Flavored Iced Teas were served with a Watermelon Kiwi Pop.
The Dessert table was filled with some extra special sweet treats all from various local vendors. The creative vendors blew us all away with their imaginative designs and ideas. Some of the highlights were the delicious Lemon cake with Raspberry filling and Hibiscus cupcakes and the most delicious tropical themed sugar cookies. They were the cutest ever! For some extra sweetness there were some candies added to the spread as well.
A great party is always complete with a great Party Favor and that’s where Shayla’s Sweet Treats chocolate specialty came in. Guests took home Shayla’s custom tropical themed chocolates. They were customized in tropical colors in Flamingo and Pineapple shapes. They were almost too cute to eat!
