What We Love: Bridal Shower Dishes & Drinks Worth Celebrating


No Comments


Five weddings. An entire handful of my dearest and most darling friends are tying the knot this year (four of them within a five-week span!). It’s like the old saying, “when it rains love, it pours weddings.” And with weddings comes bridal showers. I couldn’t be over-the-moon to celebrate the bride (or couple) with family and friends. Each friend is so different and so is their tastes. It makes for a fabulous shindig, but can make it hard to know what to bring, or even make when hosting.

Not to worry, I, along with a trusty team of talented food bloggers, are here to help. Any one of these amazing dishes or drinks will make any bride-to-be swoon and any soiree a sparkling success.
