Kitchen Bridal Shower: 10 Amazing Finds

1. Invitation

Begin planning with a perfect kitchen bridal shower invitation. This is one of our favorites and features a watercolor illustration with kitchen implements and a dish towel.

2. Recipe Cards

Place recipe cards inside the bridal shower invitations for guests to fill out and return. Have a recipe box or a recipe card book for the bride to hold all the cards turned in by her guests. (Need inspiration? Check out our ten favorite bridal shower recipe cards.)

3. Colander Kitchen Bridal Shower Centerpiece

At the shower, decorate with kicthen-inspired accents in unexpected ways. For instance, you can use a white colander as a makeshift centerpiece holder… just add a gorgeous floral arrangement! A guest at each table (perhaps whomever’s birthday is closest to the wedding date?) can take the centerpiece home.

4. Tea Towels in Grandmother’s Handwriting

This makes a great gift for the bride-to-be: turn a recipe card into a tea towel! For instance, if her grandmother’s apple pie recipe is her favorite, you can have the recipe (complete with the hand-writing as-is) transposed onto a tea towel. Isn’t that a sweet idea?

5. Teaspoon Favors

Send guests home with a delightful kitchen-inspired favor. For my own bridal shower, guests received these teaspoon favors. I still use mine daily (it’s perfect for measuring my morning coffee).

6. Personalized Rolling Pin

A personalized rolling pin makes a great gift for the bride or as a prize item for a game. Made in Poland, these personalized rolling pins can be customized with your name, which is then imprinted onto dough when baking. Neat idea!

7. Apron for Bride’s Chair

Make the bride’s chair stand out at a table by tying a apron to it. Or, if the bride AND the groom are present, use these!

8. Kitchen Mixer Centerpiece

Similarly to the colander idea above, a stand mixer makes a lovely makeshift centerpiece holder for a kitchen bridal shower. The mixer shown here is in Martha Stewart blue.

This cupcake tower uses kitchen accoutrements throughout, like colanders at each level and wood spoons at the very top.
