Four Unique Ways Your NY Catering Company Can Create a Unique Bridal Shower
There is a lot that goes into planning a bridal shower, and each bride-to-be deserves a special, memorable day to celebrate with her friends and family before she walks down the aisle. Whether the bride is involved in the planning of the bridal shower or not, one of the best ways to make it a memorable and stress-free event is to engage with a top NY caterer – and it doesn’t have to break the bank.
Most attendees of a bridal shower have been to plenty of similar events in the past, so offering unique bites and treats is one of the best ways to give the bride-to-be a shower she won’t soon forget. Here are some ideas for how you can make the shower you are planning special with the help of a NY catering company.
Make your bridal shower a memorable event that stands out among the rest.
Opt for a Bridal Shower Brunch
The popular choice for catered NY bridal showers is to serve lunch foods for the typical mid-afternoon get-together. However, changing things up a bit and offering creative breakfast and brunch foods may help your shower stand out from the rest.
There are many elegant ways to serve and present breakfast and brunch foods as well. From mini pancakes to scrumptious quiche’s served in mini crocks to mini applesauce granola with a dollop of Greek yogurt to a cantaloupe and mozzarella caprese salad with prosciutto, the possibilities are endless. Elegant drinks such as mimosas with raspberry liquor in lieu of orange juice or a non-alcoholic option Sprite or sparkling water can be served in champagne glasses with fruit infusions
Have a Tea Party Theme for your Catered Bridal Shower
Tea sandwiches and other bite-sized treats are tasty and elegant.
Tea parties were once relegated for little girls and the proper wealthy elite, but they have seen a resurgence. Instead of a full-blown traditional tea party, though, work with your NY caterer to offer beautiful looking, and wonderfully tasting, tea sandwich varieties and other bites.
This can include mini turkey and cheese sandwiches cut in triangles with the crust cut off, caprese salad served on toothpicks with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, and even mini salads served in cups. The small serving sizes are perfect for allowing the attendees of the bridal shower to walk about the room and mingle with others, as opposed to serving a fully plated sit-down luncheon.
Offer a Dessert Bar
Dessert is the best part of the meal! So, instead of ignoring dessert, indulge with an impressive dessert bar. Carrying on the theme of mini bites, your NY caterer can create handheld and not messy sweet treats such as cheesecake bites, cookies and pastries.
For an even more unique and elegant offering, you can serve up rich and creamy affogato – an Italian dessert that has a scoop of vanilla gelato with a shot of espresso poured overtop. Complementing your dessert bar with other specialty coffees, teas and after-meal drinks is another way to step up your game.
Serve the Bride’s Favorite Foods
Bridal showers are often a time of remembrance and reflection as well as a celebration of the married life ahead. Along these lines, another unique idea would be to have your NY caterer serve up all of the bride’s favorite food and drinks – no matter what they are.
You could pick the bride’s favorite appetizer dishes and snacks, followed by the main course, dessert and coffee or tea. Even if these dishes wouldn’t necessarily complement each other as a cohesive restaurant-worthy meal, it would make for some laughs and a way for your guests to truly understand all the things the bride loves best.
Of course, you’ll want to supplement these offerings with a few dishes and drinks that are crowd pleasers, just in case some of your guests don’t have the same taste buds as the bride-to-be does.
