Bridal Shower Fun Food

Apr 21, 2008
There's so much you can have where food is concerned for a bridal shower and so much that you can't. So the easiest thing to do is to get what you can't have out of the way. The bride comes first so knock off whatever she can't or won't have. Then cut out anything that could cause allergies, just in case somehow has some kind of food allergy. You could also check discreetly and find out if any of the guests do have any food allergies and if so, what they need to avoid.

This is where the fun comes in. You will already have chosen a theme for the bridal shower. Try and fit some tasty dishes around it. Having a brunch party is a great idea. If you hold it on a Sunday it can stretch into a lovely, long, lazy afternoon. Try to make it informal as this will encourage guests to mingle more. In a corner you can have a table serving fresh breads and another table with fresh fruits. One good idea is to serve mini quiche. On one side of the room you could have your drinks table serving punch and cocktails. Remember to also serve fruit juices and coffee, too. Fruit based desserts are always popular. Some chocolate coated strawberries or lemon squares could go down well.

If an evening shower is preferable, then a casserole is perfect. You can mingle whilst it is cooking. Better still. a casserole can be prepared beforehand. All you need to do is to heat and serve. Another idea is lasagna, served up with a bowl of green salad. Food like this is great for an evening do as it can be made up earlier in the day. It means you're not stuck in the kitchen as your guests arrrive. If that is too heavy a meal then a smoked or grilled dish can be served. It only takes an occasional peek in the kitchen whilst it is cooking.

Check if any guests are vegans or vegetarian beforehand and make sure that you provide a meat free alternative. A vegetable lasagna or casserole, for instance, or check on the Internet for some tasty vegetarian dishes.

Cake could be the dessert considering it is a bridal shower. But so many wedding showers today do not follow customs that are traditional so you can feel free to break tradition and have some other desserts. Maybe a table of different desserts or a choice of pies or fruits along with cake. A chocolate fountain can be easily rented to make for a great centerpiece.

Maybe you would prefer something lighter. Finger food is great. You can have a table filled with plenty of light bites that people can just help themselves to, thus enabling them to walk around and talk to the others. Some ideas to serve are cheese and crackers, dips, tiny muffins and similar items.

The choice is yours - and of course the bride's but choosing the food well could mean a great bridal or wedding shower.
