NWR: Bridal shower food

Hi ladies, I need some help. I'm planning my friend's bridal shower and trying to get the food in order. I feel like I've hit a wall as far as ideas for food goes, I could use some suggestions.

Here's what we have so far:
Fruit tray
Veggie tray
Cheese and crackers
Buffalo chicken dip
Taquitos
Cucumber sandwiches
Mini cheesecakes
Bridal shower cake

There will be about 30 people at this shower, and I'm worried that we won't have enough. What are some other good, light, finger-food type of dishes that would be good for the event?

Thanks!

  • I recently shot at a bridal shower and they had:

    chocolate dipped strawberries and pretzels
    veggies
    variety of fruits, including kiwi and dragon fruit
    giant cupcakes with fancy icing
    gourmet crackers
    fancy cheese (the bride comes from a long line of dairy royalty)
    it was a tea party so there were a lot of teas to choose from

    and there was so much left over! probably becuase it was at 2:00 in the aft.

    how about savory tea bisquits/muffins?  my FMIL makes a plain recipie and adds herbs or tomato or something.

    I think it sounds great.  What time is it and how long is it?   Other things:
    - devilled eggs
    - hummus and pita triangles/veggies
    - roll-up wraps with cream cheese/veggies inside
    - or more desserty things, you have mostly savoury things alredy... cream puffs, custard cups, cookies, squares, etc.

  • maybe deviled eggs or another flavor of small sandwhiches?

    But it sounds like enough to me honestly.
  • Sounds great!  Can I come?  I love taquitos.

    Since you're not in the south, I won't suggest cheese straws.  But they are very tasty.

  • Sounds good! You could do pepperoni rolls too. For sweets you can do cake pops or cake batter dip with Nila Wafers.

    this is pretty much the same as my recipie:  <a href="http://allrecipes.com/recipe/tea-biscuits/" rel="nofollow">http://allrecipes.com/recipe/tea-biscuits/</a>.  The, just mix in a few shakes of whatever herbs you like!  Things like chopped up, sun dried tomatoes, shredded cheese, italian seasoning, etc, all taste good. they taste best warm though.
