Are you someone who dreams about food day and night? Do you get invited to a party and your first thought is, “I hope the food is good”…? If so, you just may be a foodie, and this Recipe For Love inspired bridal shower is the perfect type of party for you! It’s all about food! The Bride-to-be loves to cook and bake, so when planning her bridal shower Owner/Event Designer, Paula Clemente Woods of 14 & Hudson turned to a food inspired theme.
Surrounded by flower arrangements in vintage food cans, a grinning bride with adorable photo-booth props, and building your own burger at a burger bar, how could you not have a great time?! This shower is filled with steal-worthy activities, special moments, and gorgeous decor ideas that any foodie would love.
Instead of a traditional bridal shower, the hosts wanted to throw the Bride a fun and unique shower for her to share with her closest family and friends. With a knack for vintage finds and curiosity in the kitchen, this baking inspired shower was created. Using lots of pink and gold, vintage tins, kitchen utensils, even a kitchen mixer, they filled the space with warmth, vintage charm and beautiful flowers that created the perfect setting.
To welcome guests, sparkling wine was passed. A full brunch buffet was served filled with mini yogurt parfaits, French toast, various salads, a burger bar and fresh fruit. Once guests had a chance to have a bite, they were able to fill out the recipe cards with a recipe of their own (as indicated on the invitations) as well as sign the guestbook, which was a serving platter for the Bride to keep.

A Bridal Shower traditionally means a “ladies only” guest list so the occasion seems tailor-made for sweet and feminine decor with pink as the base color. You can take that a step further with a theme inspired by the Bride’s passion or interest just like with this party as they designed it around the Bride’s love for baking.
But where does one get one’s hands on these pretty details I hear you ask? Well, here you go – a simple source list of the adorable decor details no matter where you’re based.
