A cooking themed bridal shower is a unique opportunity to shower the bride-to-be with a multitude of gifts she’ll be using in her kitchen after the big day. When available, personalized gifts make for wonderful mementos for the bride. She will be thinking of that wonderful day each time she’ll be using her gifts.
So I ask you, have you been tasked with the responsibility of organizing a bridal shower for your soon to be wedded friend? Are you confused in the face of all the options? Well if your friend and bridal shower group enjoy cooking, look no further! We have the perfect solution; a culinary extravaganza!
Here’s an idea…have your group cook every step of a delicious 5 course meal. The collaboration involved and the enjoyment of the fruits of your efforts is a beautiful way to bond! You can pick out your menu in advance as a group. Think of all the options! Do you want Italian food, Indian, Japanese…the possibilities are endless!
The fun doesn’t stop there! Assign different courses to groups comprised of your bridal shower guests. Team less culinary gifted guests with the chefs of your group to make sure the meal is a success. Within those groups, the newbies can wash and cut vegetables for example, while the more advanced can work on the ‘meat’ of the dish.
We found the best items to help you in this adventure, as well as adorable and perfectly themed favors for your guests to part with.
