10 Best Bridal Shower Recipe Cards (+ Recipe Book)

Planning a perfect bridal shower is a whole lot easier with a theme set in place. One of our favorites is a kitchen themed bridal shower, in which guests can stock the pantry or bring gifts of baking to the newlyweds. If you’re planning a kitchen themed bridal shower for your favorite bride-to-be (or you’re hinting at ideas for your party-planning posse) don’t forget the secret ingredient: bridal shower recipe cards. When you send out invitations, include one card for each guest to fill out with her favorite recipe and bring to the shower. When guests arrive, collect the cards and place in a recipe book for the couple. They’ll have a collection of handwritten, tried-and-true recipes they will cherish for a lifetime of home-cooked dinners. Plus, this is one gift that kicks any registry’s you-know-what.

A Recipe Book We Love

Before we showcase the top ten bridal shower recipe cards, first you need an adorable recipe book. We spotted this one at OneCanoeTwo and we think adding clear recipe cover sheets would work great. Simply buy your favorite bridal shower recipe cards and insert them into the sheets, which can be added to the recipe book binder with ease. (Plus, the cards won’t fade over time.)

Favors for a Kitchen-Themed Bridal Shower

If you’re planning a kitchen-themed bridal shower, consider these sweet little whisks or measuring spoons as favors. My mom and I (Emma here!) bought the whisks for my sister’s shower (and my sister and mom bought the measuring spoons for my shower) and I still use both in my kitchen today! The measuring spoons and whisks were a hit at both showers.

We hope you liked this round-up of bridal shower recipe cards. Which one is your favorite?
