With all the drinking and fun during the “last fling before the ring” party, everyone will need something to soak up the alcohol: food. With friends and relative coming from work, or even out of town, a perfect party has to have something nourishing to perk everyone. Easy-to-make finger foods are the perfect party eats that can render a casual gathering of close friends and relatives simple and fun. There’s no need for the party organizer/host (usually the maid of honor) to sweat it out in the kitchen, if she intends to have fun.

If you are the maid of honor and you’re looking for an easy way to make the bridal shower party possible without too much effort, there are ideas you can pick from Wedding Whoop in its post by Sam: Easy Finger Foods for Bridal Shower Ideas and Finger Food Recipes. Sam explains why finger foods make great choices for a bridal shower

“… Finger foods are great for bridal shower parties where guests are intended to eat light while socializing and honoring the happy couple. Finger foods are popular for parties and get-togethers like a bridal shower … Of course, with a little knowledge on what to prepare, you can plan your party in no time.

Sam shares some ideas when planning for a “finger food menu.”

Delicious Finger Foods for Bridal Shower Parties

  • Make it light: Party guests don’t really want a heavy meal, unless you want to serve a formal, sit-down affair for a lunch or dinner. Since bridal showers are intimate parties, most formalities are typically unnecessary.  You can even use paper plates and plastic cups.
  • What’s popular: You don’t have to overthink what’s to serve. Surprisingly, the most common spreads consist of mainly of crowd pleasers such as “cookies, french fries, cupcakes (they are the most popular!), vegetable dips, pretzels, chips, finger sandwiches, cheese sticks, scones, croissants, nuts, and salads.” That doesn’t mean you can’t include creative concoctions by chefs.

Tasty Finger Food for Bridal Shower Brunch

  • Mix them up: If it will be a brunch, offer the guests with a mix of breakfast and lunch favorites.
  • A coffee bar: What’s a brunch without coffee? It will be a good idea to set up a coffee bar that can serve several types of brews and coffee concoctions.

Finger Food for Bridal Shower Luncheon

  • Midday Bridal Shower: For bridal showers that are scheduled at midday, “… you could try cold salads, fresh vegetables, potatoes, chicken or fish. Don’t forget to put in vegetarian dishes or better yet, assume that you have a vegetarian guest so you have to provide an option for vegetarians as well.

Bridal Shower Menu for Themed Bridal Showers

  • Match the finger foods: There is a plethora of themes that can be used for a highly organized bridal shower. You can still use finger foods, but you have to creatively pick ones that will suit the theme – Hawaiian-inspire Luau, Asian –themed, Western/Ranch theme, Naughty, etc.

Don’t Forget the Sweet Conclusion

  • Completing the party: Like any party, a bachelorette party or bridal shower can’t be complete without the sweets. You can even have a party of sweets and pastries, such as in a Tea Party theme.
