Here is the next idea in my series on DIY bridal shower ideas. Does the couple you are planning for enjoy cooking together? More often than not couples these days have found some sort of love in the kitchen. This can be a great theme to stock or upgrade the kitchen  for  your bride and groom.  Below are my favorite DIY bridal shower ideas for a Portland bridal shower in the fall. This is a fall foodie feast for the eyes, celebrating Oregon bounty and of course, the bride and groom!

DIY Centerpieces

I love the idea of using fresh produce for centerpieces at a kitchen themed bridal shower. The Portland Farmer’s Market has a bounty of gorgeous colors to choose from. Think artichokes, beets, cabbage, apples,  and even squash. All have great colors and the bride can take them home after the party to stock the fridge! Or, let each guest take a special treat off of the table.

I also love this DIY centerpiece idea of using traditional flowers but a non-traditional vase!  This is adorable, and another fun gift for your party guests! Found this on Celebrate and Decorate.

DIY Party Favors

How about giving your guests something they wouldn’t make on their own. Infused salt. I found this lovely recipe for Meyer lemon and thyme infused sea salt on Food Plus Words. Infused salts are easy to prepare and truly special treat. This makes the perfect DIY party favor.
