This Is What to Serve at an Outdoor Bridal Shower
Treat the bride to a sunny outdoor shower—and make it delicious.
Southerners love to celebrate. When we hear that friends and family are engaged, we’re excited for them of course, but we’re also looking forward to planning and throwing a bridal shower. Update your go-to bridal shower menu with a few of our classic (and easy!) recipes for finger foods and punches. All of these recipes are easy to prepare, fresh, and flavorful. They travel well, and they’re perfect for an outdoor bridal shower. They pair well with outdoor showers, garden parties, and long afternoons spent snacking al fresco because they’re so vibrant and unexpected. We’ve included recipes ideal for morning and afternoon parties, both brunch-style finger foods and more filling, snackable options for later in the day. No matter the time of your party, construct your menu from our recipes below, and plan a bridal shower guests will remember—and savor. (Don’t forget the beverages! We have a few ideas for those too.)
