Vintage Bridal Shower Menu (& Free Printables)

Throw a beautiful Vintage Bridal Shower with heirlooms. Find detailed bridal shower menu ideas and printable templates for the serving table.

Several weeks ago I shared the Vintage Bridal Shower that I co-hosted for my {now} sister-in-law over {if you missed it, go here}. In our guest post, I shared a little bit about the decorations — how to decorate for a party {and stay on a budget} by using items that you already own and creating a focal point.

But there are still so many little details I want to share with you! Hopefully, your tummy isn’t empty because it will probably be growling by the end of this yummy post.

The entire Bridal Shower menu began with the drinks. Thinking of a traditional bridal tea, but being very aware of the hot and humid temperatures, we decided to serve flavored iced teas.

The Drinks

There was plenty of tea and we chose small 9oz cups so that everyone could feel free to taste test each flavor. Also, just in case someone wasn’t a tea drinker we had iced water with lemon.

The shower was mid-afternoon, so we didn’t need to provide a full meal and that allowed us to have a little fun with the menu.

The Food

  • Chicken Salad Sandwiches
  • Turkey Sandwiches
  • Watermelon Bites
  • Dipped Pretzels
  • Marshmallow Pops
  • Homemade Cookies
  • Cupcakes

You’ll see in some of the photos the signs we used to mark the Tea, Fruit, and Desserts. The white frames are from Ikea. They are inexpensive and perfect for parties. I have 3 and have used them for several parties, including my little guy’s second birthday.

I loved how these heart-shaped watermelon bites looked and tasted. So easy, too. Cut your watermelon into slices and then use a cookie cutter to cut out each piece.

The pretzel rods and marshmallows were dipped in white candy melt and then covered with sprinkles that coordinated with the color scheme.

As pretty as all the sweets were, the show-stopper on the serving table was the cupcake wedding dress.

My mom found the inspiration for this cupcake gown on Pinterest and we recreated the look with sugar pearls, pink sprinkles, and a carnation.

To treat the Bride extra special, she had a place card, cupcake dish, teacup, and saucer.
