Bridal Shower Food can range from simple snacks to an elegant meal. Your menu will be influenced by your location, the number of guests, the theme and your budget. A brunch, snacks only, or a dessert bar are just some of your choices.
The time of day will also help you decide. Traditionally, parties have been held on a weekend afternoon. In most cases this still works well, but any time is acceptable.
If you are doing the cooking yourself, or with help from others, first decide what the "guest of honor" would like. Does she have a passion for a certain restaurant dish? Surprise her with a homemade version. America's Most Wanted recipes may be just what you need to help prepare the bridal shower food. You're sure to find the perfect creation
The bridal shower food can be related to your theme. For example, a Western theme could have barbeque, or a Bed and Breakfast theme could have tea and petite sandwiches.
