4 Delicious Bridal Shower Spreads

Yum! 19

bridal shower menuIt's almost summer wedding season, people! And you know what that means: Bridal showers around every corner. Bust out your garden party dress, and your taste for champagne because chances are you'll be invited, or throwing, a shower very soon.

Bridal showers are a blast since it's all of the celebration, without the stress of the actual performance. Unless you're planning one, in which case you're going to need some ideas and fast. You can go classy or trashy, but everyone is going to remember the food, above all.

So here are five food themes with recipe ideas that will make your bridal shower a memorable one.

Vegan Delight

For the crunchy bride, you'll want to impress the crowd with amazing dishes that offer all of the flavor and none of the guilt. You really can go with an avocado wasabi salad and take your applause. But why not seal the bridal shower deal by serving white bean and chive patties and sending everyone over the edge with vegan chocolate cupcakes.

Asian Adventure

Egg rolls, check. Fried wontons in a variety of ways, check. Then blow their showering minds with Chinese chicken wings and Chinese cheesecake.

Barbecue

For the gal who likes a good hoedown, win her over with a classic barbecue. Start with mini corn on the cob, and absolutely end with Paula Deen's peach cobbler. You know you can throw the ribs, burgers, and dogs on the grill in between keg tappings.

Fiesta

May 5th is the perfect day for a Mexican themed shower. Focus on finger foods and pour the tequila for an unforgettable party. Taquitos, mushroom quesadillas, and chips and guac are the obvious. Tequila and champagne cocktails, will show how truly imaginative you are, you party person. Flan for dessert? Si.

The only showers that I've gone to have been at restaurants...usually Italian places.

What fun ideas!  I am happy with cake and maybe ice cream, or pizza, at a bridal shower, but any of  your suggestions sound good.

I don't have any favorite bridal shower foods. I do like the Vegan and Fiesta ideas, though.

I went to two last summer and one was at a bistro and they served some fettucine in alfredo with peas, it was awesome and eggplant parmesan which I didn't eat. Then I went to a house bridal party and they served beef sandwiches, fresh fruits and veggies and cupcakes.
