This was definitely not the first lingerie shower I've hosted-in fact it's probably the 4th or 5th- so I've had a little experience with this, but I wanted to find some fresh ideas this time around which is why I posted about getting some help and ideas from you all. This was the first shower; however, that I haven't hosted at my home. I booked a room at a local restaraunt, Harvey's, and it ended up being a perfect space. We had a lot of room, the staff was willing to help in any way, and the food was great.
We played some really fun games that I'll link to this post. I used an ice breaker poem that I've had for years to start things off. Each guest (and the bride) add up points for certain things mentioned in a cute little poem, and at the end, the person with the most points wins a prize. It was fun to hear the banter that went along with earning (and taking away) points. :) You can find this ice breaker poem here.
The gift continued to be passed until, finally, it ended up back with the bride. She opened it to find a pair of watermelon flavored edible, crotchless underwear (sorry! A girl has to have something a little shocking at her lingerie shower right?). By the look on her face, I think she was definitely shocked ha ha!
Another cute *new* thing I implemented this time around was the Bridesmaid Panty Line. It turned out to be so much fun, and all the bridesmaids did an awesome job picking out their panties for Katie. I found this cute little panty line poem online here, but tweaked it a bit to fit Katie. Each bridesmaid was assigned a type of panty to bring with them to the shower. Then as I read the panty poem, each bridesmaid brought the panties up and hung them on a clothesline. The panties symbolized milestones in Katie's life from her wedding to her 50th anniversary. This got a lot of laughs as the panties started to increase in size as the "years" went by. I would definitely recommend using this at any lingerie shower!
Lastly, Katie opened all her gifts. She got some really cute things too!
Such a fun night!
