(www.filmstv.tv)

If you're throwing a bridal shower for a friend or a loved one, take a look at these ideas for a fun and creative party.

Tea party: Host an elegant tea party for the bride-to-be, complete with a large selection of teas and finger sandwiches. This can be hosted at your home or even at a location that throws private tea parties. As a party favor, consider letting everyone take a tea cup home with them.

Cooking class: If you're looking for an activity to do during the bridal shower consider taking it to a kitchen for a cooking class. Pick a dish that the bride-to-be will enjoy and let everyone have fun while learning something new.

Spa party: If the bride-to-be is looking for a relaxing bridal shower throw a spa party. You can have guests make their own soaps and scents using essential oils, and treat everyone to manicures and pedicures. Guests can take home bath salts and oils as party favors.

Wine tasting: If the bride-to-be loves wine book the party at a local winery. Guests can taste wine, tour the grounds and have lunch or dinner while celebrating the bride.

Art class: Is the bride-to-be artistic? Have the bridal shower at an art studio where the guests will be instructed on how to make a painting, sculpture or a piece of pottery. A lot of studios will allow you to bring or order food and drinks during the class.

Make crafts: Does the bride-to-be like crafts, such as knitting? Consider having the bridal shower at a local yarn store that teaches classes. You could also have the party at your home and set up tables with different arts and crafts projects that guests can make.
