Valentine's Day is a celebration of love, so it seems like the perfect day to hold a Bridal Shower for the bride-to-be. While you probably have your menu planned and invitations sent, here are a few more details for you to add special touches to the shower.

If you're setting up a dessert or snack table, consider using Love Letter Dishes to hold mints or candies. It's easy to find red, pink, and white candies this time of year to coordinate with your Valentine's Day theme. You could use the couple's initials, XO, or LOVE. The dishes are available in an "&" and heart shape, so there are lots of possibilities for you to choose from.

Floral arrangements make perfect centerpieces for a Valentine's Day shower. Our friends at Corona Del Mar florists created these beautiful arrangements using colored sand as a base. To save money, consider using artificial stems. Using sand as a way to hold the stems in place is a much prettier option than the green floral foam. Or, fill some glass votives with color-coordinating sand and top with a tealight candle for a romantic look. Our personalized Favorlights are perfect for the occasion, and would make adorable gifts to send home with the guests.

Not sure what to serve for drinks? Here are two delicious options, one with alcohol and one non-alcoholic.
Blushing Bride Punch
-1/2 gallon raspberry sherbert
- 2 liters 7-Up
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Blend half of the tub of sherbert,1/4 bottle of 7-Up, and 1 tablespoon each of lemon and lime juice. Pour into a punch bowl and repeat. Top with the rest of the 7-Up and stir. That's it! You can make a smaller batch ahead of time and freeze in a bundt pan. Then, put the punch ice ring into the punch bowl so the drink will stay cold but not get watered down.

Raspberry Bellini Champagne Punch
- Champagne, prosecco, or sparkling wine
- Raspberry Sorbet
- Fresh raspberries
You'll make these drinks to serve. Put a tablespoon scoop of raspberry sorbet in the bottom of a champagne glass and top with the champagne. Toss in a couple of fresh raspberries for a delicious, festive drink.
