If you're looking for ideas for a small bridal shower, how about having a group cooking class?
This is perfect for those who love to cook or for a bride who is inexperienced in the kitchen.
Think about all of those holiday meals that were cooked in grandma's kitchen with all of the aunts and uncles and cousins pitching in. Weren't they fun? By choosing a cooking class shower theme, you can easily recreate that atmosphere for the bride-to-be's special day.
This idea is so unique that I wasn't able to find specific invitations for it but the featured invite can be easily customized to suit your needs.
There's a couple of different ways you can plan this type of shower.
First, you'll need to decide if this is going to be for couples or just the girls. Keep in mind that it's probably better to do this with a smaller group but, couples showers are getting very popular lately and including the guys can be a lot of fun. Besides, some of the best chefs are men aren't they? So, why not?
The cooking shower can be held at someone's home if you have an experienced cook who's willing to take the lead and who also has enough cooking utensils and space in her kitchen. This can be a fun way for the mothers-in-law on both sides to share their child's favorite recipe with the new members of the family.
One mom can teach a main dish while the other mom makes a special dessert.
There are also quite a few places that offer professional cooking classes that can be found through a search in your local area. That way everyone can learn a new cooking style or technique.
Another alternative is to hire a professional chef to teach the "class".
The best part of this type of shower is that once the meal is done, everyone gets to sit down and enjoy something they made as a group.
If you're having the shower at home, you can plan a few silly games and the losers get to clean the kitchen afterwards.
