Host a "Stock the Pantry" Bridal Shower

Comfortable Enough for Both Men and Women


This tip was submitted by Virginia.

I recently hosted what I feel is an innovative theme for a bride and groom shower, a 'Stock The Pantry Shower". This kind of 'theme shower' allows the groom to be present and guests can be both men and women. It was a nice event!

I asked attendees to bring something to the shower to stock the pantry. Some of the items were: paper products such as paper towels, wax paper, foil, plastic bags; spices and herbs; breakfast items: cereals, pancake mix, syrup; canned goods; condiments such as: mayo, mustard, ketchup, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce; assorted pastas; assorted rices.

I served sub sandwiches, chips, wines, beer and soft drinks. The dessert was a miniature wedding cake, so the bride and groom were able to 'practice' their cake cutting skills to get ready for their wedding reception.

Thanks for the tip Virginia!
