Autumnal Terrariums for a Fall Bridal Shower from Host-It Notes


Planning a fall bridal shower? Why not skip the cheesy games and plan a hands-on activity for your guests instead? A terrarium-making shower is perfect for the bride with creative and crafty friends.


For an unexpected, seasonal look think “autumn” when gathering your terrarium supplies. In addition to the basics charcoal, potting soil, and moss’ set out loads of little fall goodies for your guests to put in their terrariums. Miniature pumpkins and squash, tiny pinecones, acorns, preserved leaves, and little bird’s nests all give off that cool-weather vibe. Visit a local plant nursery for a few recommendations on terrarium-friendly plants and use these as a base for your fall look. Expand on your theme with the decor using fresh and dried branches, funky squash, large pinecones, dried artichoke blossoms, cotton bolls, pomegranates and walnuts in your tablescape. Serve apple cider and fall-themed food like pumpkin bread and pecan pie.
