There comes a very special time in a person’s life when they decide to settle down and become wed. The reaction to the news comes in several forms. Joy, shock, and the realization that someone whose friendship we hold dearly is beginning a bold new chapter in their life.
While the headaches and stress of planning a storybook wedding are on the horizon, so are two other traditions that friends of the betrothed take part in—the bachelorette party, and the bridal shower.
In case you’re someone who takes names of events quite literally, we need to emphasize that this does not include bathing the bride. A bridal shower is an event filled with joy and gifts as someone we cherish begins a new chapter in their life.
Like so many other events that host a multitude of guests, the thought of what should be served comes into question. First and foremost, consider the size of your guest list. Then, ask yourself a few questions?
Having party guests means having a wide variety of tastes present in one location. The best way to satisfy this diverse selection is to counter it with a slightly more diverse selection. The best way to accomplish this is by serving appetizers and finger foods. You can satisfy the cravings and tastes of your guests rather simply this way.
What makes an event like a wedding shower so enjoyable is the close-knit comradery in an intimate setting. This is the perfect moment to savor the moment, take it all in, and engage in the act of conversation. Smaller portions of food won’t detract from the celebration, and they can be placed throughout the course of the event.
If you’re having some difficulty coming up with ideas, we’ve made some suggestions.
