Recipe Themed Bridal Shower Ideas

Bridal showers are a way to celebrate a lifetime love for the bride-to-be, so what’s better for a party theme than to focus on recipes? Whether it’s cooking or baking, recipes for any type of food are full of love—just as a wedding is! So get your invitations sent out and be sure to ask your guests to bring a card with their favorite recipe written down to give to the bride as an addition to her own new recipes as she starts on her journey as a wife!

For decorations, stick with a “Recipe for a Happy Marriage” or “Recipe for Love” direction. Miniature chalkboards set up around the venue with recipes for sweet, romantic treats are perfect themed accents, while recipe cards at guest tables are great for guests to write down well wishes for the bride. Floral arrangements in pale shades of yellows and pinks are beautiful as centerpieces, and guest favors of cookie ingredient-filled mason jars at each place setting are a wonderful touch. White, doily lace tablecloths with burlap runners or chair sashes lend an extra bout of class to the theme as well. Fun recipe books—old and new alike—are also really great to have lying around for not only a theme look, but also because guests love to flip through these and have conversations about some of their favorite dishes.

Sweet treats such as classic cupcakes, sugar cookies, brownie bites, and lemon tartlets are must haves, along with a simple looking cake with rich flavor. Ask the bride for her and her groom’s favorite brunch recipe and have these recipes out for the guests to enjoy. Use the recipe theme to put together a guest activity, such as baking or cooking a simple recipe together. Give your guests a monogrammed apron that can also pose as a party favor, and for an extra dose of smiles, break out some silly chef hats.
