How to Make a Bridal Shower Spa Set

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

If you've been invited to a bridal shower, you can expect an afternoon spent watching a bride-to-be unwrap blenders and dish sets. Many people purchase the bride and groom traditional houseware items like towels, baking tins, and salad bowls. Though she and he may need these products, it's nice to change things up and give the bride something a shower spa set you make yourself. Learn how to make your own spa set for her without breaking bank.

Things You’ll Need:

* A bamboo or wicker basket
* Two towels
* Two washcloths
* Shower gel
* Bath salts
* Bath soap
* Nail file and pedicure set
* Candles
* Relaxation CD


Step1 : Purchase a medium-sized basket from your local arts and crafts store or houseware store. Try Bed, Bath & Beyond. Great spa set choices are wicker baskets or bamboo baskets.

Step2 : Pick out two fluffy towels and washcloths to match. Roll them neatly and stand them up in the spa basket. If you wish, purchase two sets in colors like cream and navy blue for an aesthetic effect.

Step3 : Buy a spa relaxation CD. You can try Barnes and Noble or even Linens and Things. Pick out a CD that has tranquil nature sounds or other calming tracks.

Step4 : Buy matching bath salts, shower gel, and body soap to insert in the spa set. If you don't have alot of money to spend, head over to Target where you can pick out spa essentials that don't cost an arm and a leg. But, if you go with lavender body soap, attempt to get lavendar shower gel and bath salts.

Step5 : Buy a wooden paddle nail file and pedicure kit. They're very convenient and look great in any spa gift set.

Step6 : Pick out one or two candles that match the towels you've placed in the basket. Arrange the candles neatly around the other spa gifts.

Tips & Warnings

* For a nice touch, write "relax" in calligraphy on a little notecard. This can act as your greeting card, as well.
* If you have the extra money, include a gift card from a department store.
