Bridal shower

Options abound when it comes to hosting a bridal shower. Some are hosted by the bride’s mother or sisters, or coordinated by the maid of honor and bridesmaids. Others are themed, like an around-the-clock party where each guest brings something for a specific time of day, or focus on sending the bride off with a complete trousseau for her honeymoon (read: lingerie).

From the most formal affairs to more casual gatherings, every shower should feature an array of festive dishes that will fill guests up without weighing them down. Start with bubbly cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres to whet the appetite. Sit down for a meal of salads and fresh crusty bread, homemade if you can. While the bride opens her gifts, serve a light and fruity dessert that can be served in a coupe — perfect for eating away from the table.
