Cooking Themed Bridal Shower


Gather all your girlfriends, because this is going to be one fun bridal shower! Bridal showers don't have to only be about bridal games, you and your closest friends can cook a fun and delicious meal together, and bond over the feast. That's a whole day worth of partying right there! Bake a batch of lovely cupcakes for the party, and give your guests a box of cupcake mix favors to remind them of the fun times.
A cooking themed bridal shower would be perfect for the bride-to-be who loves to cook. Here are a few ideas you could use to host the party:
- Have a do-it-yourself party. Have your friends bring their favorite recipes and choose 2-3 recipes that all of you can cook, depending on the time and level of difficulty. You could also split into groups to make different dishes (if your kitchen is big enough.)
- Get your guests to bring gifts that will help you prepare the dishes. Other than recipes, as mentioned above, they could bring the ingredients or cooking utensils, such as baking pans or pots. These practical gifts would come in handy to a new couple who recently bought their first house.
- If you do not need kitchen gadgets, you could ask your friends for their most cherished recipes or kitchen tips as gifts. You'll have a wide range of recipes and experience that would take years to accumulate.
- You could hire a chef to teach a cooking class during the party. It would be a fun way to learn how to make a delicious dish together. After cooking, you could use the prepared food as the party's meal and the best part is that everyone gets to bring the recipe home and do it again.
- If all that cooking is too much of a hassle, simply set up a fondue. It requires simple preparation and it is sure to please everyone. I consider preparing, mixing and stirring in the chocolate or cheese as cooking!
- You could make your own centerpiece by using wooden spoons and spatulas, as seen in the inspirational board above. Check out Studio Four 13 for a neat kitchen themed bridal shower. They included lovely decorations that seem pretty easy to make. You could place the decorated spatulas in vintage food tins instead of flower pots.
A cooking themed bridal shower is probably one of the most interesting and fun themes I've come across. I personally love to cook and bake, so researching for this post was very exciting for me. I hope that reading it was as exciting for you and I hope you are inspired to host your own cooking/kitchen themed bridal shower! Have fun!

  6. Arranging a bridal shower is hard but it’s completely worth the time to plan! We got the bride a customized 'born to be bride' hat with her personal pic printed on the product. We located some incredible themed ideas and customized shirts from this web page...
