Bridal Shower Appetizer
At home bridal showers are a perfect occasion to serve your favor “finger food”! Choose from your favorite appetizer and create a menu of appetizers for your bridal shower guests. Appetizers make serving at the shower a lot easier. No need for setting the table or sit down serving, just create beautiful platters, decorated with fresh flowers or wedding accessories and wait for the “ooh’s and “aah’s” !
Here’s a great tip: Have your guest each bring an appetizer recipe and a gift that can be use to make the appetizer. Your gift can be a beautiful recipe box complete with your shower recipes and the recipes of all the bridal shower guests. Choose from some beautiful recipe boxes like this Maple Recipe Box with acrylic lid provides access to the file and protects the recipe card that’s being used, and see it too!
