There are a few fun lingerie games you could play. One is “How Well Do You Know Your Lingerie Companies?” In this game you have to match the name of the Lingerie company (ex: Victoria’s Secret) with the picture of the lingerie. Another game we like, especially for a sit down affair is “Who Has the Groom?” For this game I googled a picture of a tuxedo and printed it out, then I flipped through magazines and cut out fun celebrity faces and glued them on the tuxedos. For Jen’s future hubby, Brandon, I cut out a little heart that said “I love Jen.” Then put all the “men” in envelopes and put them at each place setting. Make sure to have a post-it note on the envelopes with the name of who’s inside (especially for the groom). Whichever guest gets the groom, wins a prize!
For the favor you can always wrap up some lingerie cookies, or Jen did a lavender teddy sachet, which was really cute! You can find the one pictured below, here. We loved the idea of having a perfume mixing bar for your guests, and giving them little perfume bottles to take their signature sent home with them.
For the gift, make sure to inform guests of the bride-to-be’s bra and panty sizes, and to bring a gift receipt (just incase gifts don’t fit well).
The first fun idea for the gift my lovely friend Christiana did for me, and it was quiet entertaining! She wrapped a large hat box with a smaller box on top and advised me to not open the top box, but pull it instead. When I lifted the top box up, I saw that she had cut a hole in the hat box (hidden by the top box) and an almost endless string of panties came through! It was so much fun! (TIP: When recreating this make sure to use one long ribbon to tie the panties to each other. Tie the first two together by their sides, and then leave some length, and then tie the next two. This way all the pretty new panties don’t get stretched out when you pull on them.)
For Jen’s shower I wanted to do something a little different, I called her gift the “Panty Pinata!” I found a little kids (the ones were you pull strings from the bottom and it breaks open) cupcake pinata online, and filled it with confetti and panties. Then I wrote a note and glued it to the front that read: “Pull the strings and see what you’ll find … maybe something sexy for your little behind!” I wrapped it and made a little “Do Not Disturb” sign to tie on top.
I saw these Paper Towel Roll Crowns on Pinterest, and wanted to try it, so I made them for the place cards for Jen’s Lingerie Shower. They would also be great for a little girls Birthday party, or fairytale themed baby shower or kids party. Also, I used a dry cleaning hanger to store the crowns (it worked great).
Hope this helped you plan your next shower for a loved one! Let us know if you have any questions, or want ideas for a specific theme! Stay tuned for my Bridal Shower ideas next week.
