Bridal Shower

This would be fabulous for a bridal shower…. although I must admit, I have quite a few kitchen toys…. I may have to look at my kitchen before I jump in with this.

If the bride-to-be is addicted to the Food Network and has a pile of Gourmet magazines sitting by the door, a kitchen-themed bridal shower might be right up her alley.
Some ideas to get you going:
The invitations:
Use a cooking themed invitation or modify recipe cards with the time, address, and instructions. See below for gift theme suggestions you can include with the invitations.

The gifts:
How about giving your guests a theme for their gifts? Ask groups of guests to bring either a favorite kitchen gadget, cookbook or gourmet ingredients. Or have every guest bring their favorite recipe and create a collection of them for the bride. Just make sure that if you are asking for themed gifts, you make it clear on the invitations.

The food:
In keeping with the theme, I think that providing appetizers and desserts that require a bit of interaction are interesting (and keeps you out of the kitchen all day!). Try fondue, a hamburger slider bar or decorate-your-own sugar cookies.

Rings

I have resisted up until this point… but I decided I should put the pictures down before they disappeared on my. My ring doesn’t have to be one of these but, something in the vein would be wonderful. 1a6b89fa1f9755edefa586ddd73cf0e8b007caccfa66c3e4f0f09ff5963ff467d0ea70475e69a4e4cf27fc6127836702 3d3708021623abea133055c4a363e99a 6e434820cd81c328fefd3b76c94987ef 7b6f7255ad7a781c3fa5d50bbb485796 8b5dd93f32f85591801ae36ec19a23b9 08149c767132088f8aa528e4c1f9a62d 09035f3b99edb7e4779f687be538707c 0783137354b12991935894d880b4b8ef 9721914205027a3707aebf0acedfbd11 c35ce56880924e5d4bc41661d85eccd5 dadb1028d4beebe3b42c28546278635c
