Bridal Shower Ideas: Recipe for Love

One of our favorite bridal shower ideas is the recipe theme, where guests bring their favorite recipes, along with gifts for the kitchen, to help out the new cooks. The handwritten recipes give the shower a personal touch and are a lasting gift the couple will treasure.

Celebrations.com planned a recipe shower using our Ingredients for Love recipe bridal shower invitations as inspiration. The simple one-sided invitation comes with a matching recipe card that has a place for your recipe on one side and a cute gingham pattern on the back, where you can also put the bride’s name and shower date as a memento. The gingham pattern led to a retro theme that tied all of their bridal shower ideas together.

Colorful flowers in classic aluminum cans set the tone for the retro table décor, along with canisters of kitchen utensils—a budget friendly idea you can create from your own supply! (Alternatively, you can purchase them, and give them to the bride as a gift when the party’s over.) The classic grilled cheese and tomato soup lunch fare took on a chic party feel when they cut them into mini bites. They kept the mini-food theme going with sliders and mini desserts, too.

As guests arrived, they hung their hand-written recipe cards on a string with old-fashioned clothespins, creating an impromptu banner of their own making. And of course, the bride got to take them all home at the end of the shower. And as for party favors, the guests each got to take home the heart-shaped cookie cutter that served as her napkin ring, along with little mason jars with ingredients for a take-home recipe.

As the copywriter for Pear Tree, Cathy sympathizes with those who are intimidated by the blank space inside a 3 x 5" thank you card. Married to an active husband, and Mom to three teenage boys, she finds herself out-numbered and out-voted on pretty much everything, never gets the remote, and is used to receiving blank stares when talking about girl stuff. This blog is both her outlet and her payback.
