Brunch is always a good idea—especially when it comes to bridal showers. Believe it or not, many hostesses admit that when it comes to hosting a bridal shower brunch, they’re not sure where to start. We get it—between decorations, invitations, and menu planning for such a special event, it can be challenging to sort through all the options. So we’ve put together some of our favorite ideas for hosting a bridal brunch.
There’s no need to go overboard catering a full meal at the brunch hour—sips and snacks will do just fine. We love the idea of miniaturizing popular breakfast dishes to give guests a taste of their favorite breakfast items without the pressure of making a full-on breakfast for that many guests. Use Chinet® Cut Crystal® cups to create easy-to-grab waffle sticks and syrup. Mini quiches are easy to make ahead and add to the mix.
What’s a brunch without mimosas? A mimosa bar takes things to the next level by allowing guests to customize their mimosa. Set out pitchers of juices like orange juice, raspberry lemonade, and pineapple juice along with fresh fruit and herbs for garnish. Guests can have fun mixing flavors and dressing up their mimosa to their liking.
One of the biggest challenges with hosting a bridal shower is ensuring guests are entertained. Setting up a photo backdrop provides an opportunity for guests to take photos with the bride, and the bride will love having these keepsake-worthy photos of the day.
With Chinet® Cut Crystal® premium plastic plates and cups, you can create a custom cake stand to match your party décor. Perfect for displaying mini desserts or pastries. Get the instructions here.
When it comes to bridal showers, it’s all about the details. Create a feeling of romance by adding elements of lace to your tablescape. Wrap Chinet® Cut Crystal® cutlery in a napkin and tie with lace. If setting the table, slide a colorful doily underneath a Chinet® Cut Crystal® plate for a more dressed-up place setting.
No bridal shower brunch is complete without decorations that celebrate the bride-to-be. Mylar balloons are easy to set up and act as a focal point to your shower décor.
