Office Bridal Shower Party Ideas

Office Bridal Shower Help Needed!

Calling all fabulous hostesses! Divinelight needs our help planning an office bridal shower for a friend. She writes:

"One of my coworkers will be getting married soon and we want to throw her a little get together in the office. Her wedding date is 9/10/11, so we want the theme to be like a count-up (instead of countdown) to her wedding and have something to do with the numbers 6, 7, 8. What type of ideas do you think we could do that follows this theme? One idea that got passed around was an Ice Cream Shower where there are 6 flavors, 7 syrups (do that many even exist?) and 8 toppings, but we've done an ice cream shower in the past and this will be for a group of less than 10 people probably."

My first question is why the numbers six, seven, and eight? Could they be one, two, and three instead? That way you could do a taco party and have one kind of tortilla, two types of proteins, and three scrumptious salsas. Have it at lunch and let everyone drink their favorite Mexican beer! Or if you want it to be dessert themed, you could do a cupcake bar with one flavor of cupcake, two filling choices, and three types of frosting.

Do you have any good suggestions? Share them with us below.

Interesting theme. I don't have any ideas for the theme, but we are having one at work for a co-worker at the end of September. We've decided on a tea party. Chicken salad on mini croissants, fruit salad, crudites, scones, cheesecake cupcakes, tea cakes, iced tea and citrus water. We're going to do teacups filled with after dinner mints as party favors. I like the cheese and wine idea!

Numbers ... possibly because the wedding is 9, 10, 11 .... makes total sense to make a joke and do 6, 7, and 8. why not do cupcakes: 6 flavors of cake, 7 icings, 8 toppings or any cake [cheesecake, bundt cake, cookies] or do cheese and wine: 8 cheeses, 7 things to accompany [crackers, jelly, chutney, olives, dips, etc], and 6 wines
