To make your bridal shower finger food more fun and easy to access, try making Hors d"Oeuvre flags using custom stickers and toothpicks.
I came across this super easy idea at the Zazzle blog and just had to share it here.
This is a low cost way of adding a personalized feel to your bridal shower buffet table and is so super easy to accomplish that anyone can do it, one... two... three!
1. Simply order customized stickers to match your bridal shower theme. Zazzle has literally thousands of designs to choose from so you're sure to find the perfect one for yours.
2. Next, use two stickers (back to back) with a toothpick stuck between them to create the adorable flags to stick into the finger food and appetizers at your shower.
3. Then, stick them into your finger food and appetizers on your buffet table so that people can easily grab the tasty treats without making a mess.
You don't need to use these on each and every piece of food for this to look good. Just a few on each platter will look great. Use plain toothpicks for the rest.

Zazzle's small stickers are sold 20 to a sheet. They're easy to personalize and are the perfect size for this do-it-yourself bridal shower project.

P.S. This neat idea also works well for baby showers and any other type of party that you'd like to add a bit of personal flair to. You can use plain toothpicks or match colors using colored toothpicks.

The History of Bridal Showers
Did you know that the custom of throwing a bridal shower dates back to the time when dowries were popular? Friends of the woman to be wed began giving what is now known as a bridal shower to compensate women who came from poor families who couldn't afford a proper dowry, or for a woman whose father didn't approve of the marriage and refused to pay.
