Pre-wedding Parties

throw a recipe shower

I recently hosted a bridal shower where guests each brought the completed recipe card along with the actual dish. The completed cards along with photos form the shower were put into an album for the bride to create a cookbook especially for the new couple.Perfect for a second time bride, the couple that has everything, or just to add a little fun to any shower theme. Make it a pot lluck by having guests bring their dish to accompany their favorite recipe. These recipe cards can be personlized with the name of your bride (or new mom or the birthday girl). And artwork selected for the occasion. Visit www.thatsaplanonline.etsy.com for more information.

    well it was not remotely tacky with gorgeous freash flowers and awesome shower gifts to our guests. the bride didnt want any gifts but did want to celerbate with her loved ones. she likes to cook so it was the perfect event for my lovely second time bride! i would absolutely throw this shower again.

    Ditto retread on all counts.  I would NEVER ever host a shower and ask the guests to bring food.  That is completely the hosts responsibility.  If the bride didn't want any gifts there should have been no shower. ALSO.......advertising your etsy site makes you a vendor which is against the rules here.  Reported.

    Why hasn't anyone flagged her as a vendor? I though ads for etsy were a big no-no on these boards. And I'll bet dollars to donuts it's her etsy site.
