Tip: Sharing Favorite Recipes

Everyone has a favorite recipe, one dish that you love to make and that friends beg you to bring to parties. The idea for this shower is to share those recipes. Slip recipe cards into the invitations and ask guests to fill them out and bring them to the shower, along with gifts of cookware or cookbooks.

A wedding is also a wonderful occasion to pass along favorite family recipes, ones that so often are lost because an aunt or grandmother never wrote them down. For example, you could accompany a pie dish with your grandmother's cherry pie recipe, or pair a set of grill tools with the recipe for your father's barbecue sauce. By sharing the recipes for these cherished dishes, guests can create a lovely keepsake for the bride.
