My mom just eloped and I have never had to plan a bridal shower before but do you give one if they eloped? If so how soon after they get back do we have it?  ???

If you think your mom would like a shower then I would have one.
As far as how long maybe a week after she gets back.

In my opinon if the couple is "Older" and is well established within their home I would say no but there is nothing wrong with having a celebration for her new marriage.
If the couple is just starting out and needs towels, linens, cookware etc... then yes for sure have a "bridal shower".
They are already married so it kind of defeats the purpose of the name "Bridal Shower" I think. what about having a Elopement Party?..Hee Hee. These days anything why not..we all need an excuse to get together and have some fun right?.
Are you thinking of having just ladies at the event or a "Jack & Jill"?.
