Cooking games could include pairing up guests and having the whip up one of the bride’s favorite dishes to have her sample and determine a winner.
Once you have chosen your theme along with the food and games, you can decide on what types of gifts the bridal shower guests can bring for the bride. Money trees, visa cards, time capsules, and pampering are all types of gifts that are fit for a bride.
Hosting the perfect bridal shower is a fun and exciting thing to do, so make sure you go all out and you put in your best effort to show your friend how much you love them.
