  • ‘Pink for girls’ can be a good theme. The party room can be decorated with different items that are pink color. The windows can be covered with pink curtains. Vases with pink flowers (especially roses) can be placed at all the corners. The dress code for the ladies should be a pink outfit. One can arrange for a strawberry cake to be placed on a table at the centre of the room. Gifts for the bride should be wrapped in a pink colored gift paper. A large sized greeting card autographed by the invitees can be presented to the bride-to-be along with a big floral bouquet.
