Party DIY // Bridal Shower Bingo

If you’ve been following along, you know that I recently hosted a Happy Hour Bridal Shower, a new theme I’m hoping makes its way into more and more bridal showers.

When it comes to showers, for better or for worse, I believe in honoring the tradition of opening your gifts during the party.  Some people may like the limelight, but I’ve always felt a bit awkward opening gifts in front of people and having to emote on the spot about each and every gift. Because I’m nutty like that, I always recommend creating some sort of distraction for the guests while gifts are being opened.

In the past, I’ve used a He Said/She Said game {more on that here}, but it didn’t seem to fit with the Happy Hour and lingerie theme. In this case, all the ladies of course wanted to “Oooohh” and “Aaahhh” over the sexy lingerie gifts, but since the bride would literally be blushing, I wanted to lighten the mood with a fun game of BINGO.

To create this game, I brainstormed words the bride might say while opening lingerie. I included obvious things like sexy, cute, and her husband-to-be’s name but also threw in some funny, off-the-wall things to keep it challenging.

Since you want a different BINGO board for each guest, I used an online bingo card automator {like this one} — yes this really exists and it does 90% of the work for you! How fabulous! Once you’ve got your word list, just type them in and hit go. To dress things up and tie it back to the party theme, I plopped each BINGO board onto a custom header/title design. I admit, this meant I had to create, save, and print 16 different JPEGs but I’ll do just about anything in the spirit of preserving a party theme. Who’s with me?

Minus the printing, this is an easy peasy way to keep things fresh at a party or shower of any kind! Plus, you’d be surprised just how competitive your guests may get when you introduce a simple game.
