Wedding Basket Shower

I love unique ideas. If you have a friend who is getting married and don't want to do the normal run-of-the-mill bridal shower, here is a superb idea. Throw your friend a "basket shower".

Each guest will bring a basket of goodies that has a theme to go along with it. It will help the new bride get well-stocked on supplies as well as fun items.

Here are a few themes to get you thinking. Be creative and have a blast discovering all the themes ladies come up with!
