Many women aspire to be a DIY bride, but need help in pulling off a stress-free, fabulous event. Well, have no fear—we at Destination I Do have found a Web site for do-it-yourself entertaining that we love. Hostess with the Mostess is all about creating party themes that women can recreate from start to finish.

p>There are several beautiful bridal shower ideas, but Love in Paradise is one we think would be perfect for a destination bride. It is created with a vibrant, tropical color palate made up of greens and deep purples. Orchids take center stage in this design and set a romantic, lush scene for your bridal shower. Accents made with sand also help to set a beachy-tropical vibe.

Each theme idea is broken into different sections to make recreating the scene a cinch. An introduction lets you know straight away if this theme will fit your personality and party purpose. The tabletop and party décor sections have step-by-step instructions on how to make your guests feel as though they’ve been transported to a remote, island oasis.

Hostess with the Mostess doesn’t just do table settings, the Web site has the menu covered too. The Love in Paradise menu suggestions include a classic coconut cake and mimosa prawns that your guests will love. A tidal wave cocktail carries on the tropical theme while refreshing your guests’ palates.

While all the party themes are beautiful, they’re also practical and not over-the-top. At the bottom of each theme are links to Web sites where you can purchase any supplies you will need to throw the perfect party. Hostess with the Mostess is a one-stop-shop for the busy bride or bridesmaid.

Along with bridal shower ideas, you can also find general entertaining tips, tricks and treats at Hostess with the Mostess.
