Parties are more fun when you can share them with your love, so hosting a couple’s wedding shower is a wonderful way to bring your favorite couples together to celebrate the bride and groom to be. And if they’re a couple who loves great food and fun drinks, an eat, drink and be married shower is a perfect theme for them.
Go all out for the ‘eat’ portion of this eat, drink and be married shower by hosting lots of gourmet appetizers, charcuterie trays and desserts. Search your favorite cookbooks or Pinterest for some fun and flavorful finger foods that will make even the biggest foodie drool.
Skewered food is perfect for showers – it makes the pieces easy to display and even easier to pick up and eat since they’re already cut into bite sized pieces! Caprese skewers, antipasto skewers and watermelon feta skewers are all fresh and flavorful ideas to try!
A party isn’t complete without a cheese and meat tray, so don’t forget one at this couple’s shower! Take a large platter and layer in different salamis, prosciuttos and other cured meats, then add in lots of cheeses – the more flavorful the better! Set the tray out with an assortment of crackers and your guests will devour the whole thing.
You can have fun with the desserts and sweets, too! Dark chocolate dipped anything is delicious and when you dip pineapple slices in dark chocolate and then sprinkle with coconut, you have a healthy and flavorful sweet treat.
With appetizers and treats like these, the bride and groom will love all the food you put together for their eat, drink and be married shower!
Delightful Decor for an Eat, Drink and Be Married Shower
Because the food will be the focus for this shower, you can make the decor simple and classic!
Black and white with champagne and peach as accent colors create the perfect palette for this traditional theme. Choose black and white striped table coverings or backdrops for a bold and graphic pop, and add in the softer colors in everything from the signature drink to the florals.
Customized glasses, favor bags and banners are the perfect way to bring a personal touch to this shower. Wine glasses that feature the theme are a perfect tie in and are a wonderful keepsake for each guest. Brown bags with the theme printed on them are perfect for organizing silverware, and customized signs and banners are a cute way to add some lettering and design to the party!
When you have a food focused shower, your decor can be as simple as black and white photos and pastel peach balloons – as long as the shower shares the personality of the bride and the groom, everyone is sure to enjoy themselves celebrating the couple.
