{Food Dish} Cliché Mormon Bridal Shower Menu

by | May 13, 2011

The Food Dish

Wedding season is upon us (already?!) and it’s time to start planning the showers. Mormons only have to attend a few hundred of these every summer, but at least there’s food, right? However, over my years of attendance, I’ve noticed the same types of food are served and I’d like to see things mixed up a bit.

Does this menu sound familiar: Chicken salad croissants, fruit platter, spinach strawberry salad, mint brownies, and a fruit punch concoction made with Sprite? Of course it does.

I don’t want to throw tradition completely out the window, but here’s a spiced up menu for the bridal (and baby) shower classics.
