Can You Fondue? Fondue Party Shower Ideas
If you are giving the bridal shower, why not plan a Fondue Party Shower and surprise the guest of honor with her own fondue set and a copy of our Fondue recipe? The Bride-to-be will remember this party every time she uses the set. These fondue party shower ideas are sure to make you an enviable hostess. Today’s Fondue Pots are a lot different for the messy pots of the 80′s. Fondue pots like this one from Cuisinart, allow you insert the ceramic pot to change to cheese or chocolate options….and have plenty of heat for meat options. To make it even easier, The whole unit is immersible and dishwasher-safe, making cleanup easy. It’s a great change from the typical meal or dessert and fun when entertaining.
Having an at home fondue party shower is a great way to get everyone together to help prepare the food. Try this recipe for Chocolate Fondue. Fondue parties lend themselves to a casual atmosphere so using paper party goods is a natural. Add a few “naughty” or “nice” party favors and decorations and be sure to have a party that’s a hit with your guests!
Chocolate Fondue is a Bridal Shower or Bachelorette Party Favorite.
One of my most favorite bridal shower or bachelorette party ideas is a Fondue Party. It’s also great at a Bachelorette Party! If you’re not familiar with fondue, it involves a fabulous melted cheese, sauce or chocolate and a tray full of bread squares, meat, fruits or vegetables all cut in small pieces and dipped into the fondue pot and eaten directly from with a slender fondue fork. Fondue lends itself to long meals and wonderful conversation.
Fondue is a perfect recipe for any bridal shower or bachelorette party! Be sure to have plenty of plates and napkins on hand as it can get messy! Serve your fondue on one of these great bachelorette party patterns, baby shower themed party goods, or bridal shower paper goods.
