Chilling with your best gal pals as you celebrate your impending wedding…that’s the goal right? A bridal shower ultimately should celebrate both the bride and women she loves. What better way to do that than with a brunch-themed bridal shower? Even if brunch isn’t exactly the theme, guests will love great food for the shower.
But what do you serve for brunch when you’re feeding a dozen or more hungry women? Don’t worry, we have you covered. These bridal shower brunch food ideas will make your mouth water.
1. Mini Quiches
Quiche is a classic brunch food. The savory, eggy filling over a flaky crust is just what your girlfriends need. Since you’re going to be having a large spread of food, one big quiche will seem out of place. Instead, serve mini quiches. You can find these in the frozen section of some grocery stores, or you can make your own. Check out this recipe from Add a Pinch.
2. A Waffle Bar
This is an especially good idea if you’re having a buffet-style bridal shower rather than a sit-down affair. Fill a table with several flavors of waffles along with an array of fun toppings. You can go savory with bacon and cheese or sweet with whipped cream and mixed berries. Even some unconventional toppings, like peanut butter and chocolate chips have a place on this waffle bar.
3. Bagel Bar
Are bagels more your speed? Set up a table just like the waffle bar, but go with a variety of bagels instead. Provide several flavors of cream cheese and toppings like smoked salmon, fruit, ham and cheese. You could even get a panini press and set it at the side of the table if guests prefer to make their bagel sandwiches toasty and warm.
4. Maple Bacon
Speaking of bacon, this delicious meat is a favorite no matter what, so it’s a smart idea to have a tray of it at the ready. Why not make it special by making candied or maple bacon? The mix of sweet and salty will make everyone beg you for the recipe. You can find one from Food Network.
5. Mini Muffins
The best thing about going for the smaller variety of muffins is you can make multiple flavors. Guests will line their plates–like these pretty tea party plates–with blueberry, poppy seed, chocolate chip or pumpkin muffins. The world is their oyster!
6. Iced Tea Station
Fill a glass pitcher with iced tea for a refreshing brunch beverage. You can even give your guests personalized mason jars for their tea that they can keep once the event is over.
