A bridal shower menu should be tasty, but also simple with food, which is easy to hold while the guests are mingling around. It is good to start with a food theme and have a diverse menu that includes different flavours and a variety of hot and cold options. Vegan food is a fantastic idea because it is light and healthy, and yet it can be so flavoursome, which is just what your bride needs in the lead up to her wedding.
Start crafting your vegan menu by choosing alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks to serve at the bridal shower. Guests will be thrilled if you include fun cocktails such as a Bloody Mary with vegan Worcestershire sauce or white sangria infused with lemon, orange, lime and mango. You can also serve wines, teas and freshly squeezed fruit juices. Make sure to use vegan beverages, which are 100% free from animal ingredients.
Fresh vegetables should be the most important ingredients of your bridal shower menu, but think of fun party food ideas and make small portions, which look, exciting and colourful. You can make tasty mini salads and serve them in mini bowls or shot glasses. Mix different vegetables and add grains, nuts and delicious dressings to make these mini salads even tastier. Another great idea is to use small glass jars, fill them with veggies and nuts and serve with a selection of breads and salad dressings your guests can add themselves.
Vegan food can be really delicious, so make sure to include some mouth-watering finger food in your bridal shower menu such as mini home-made pies with vegetables and Italian-style bruschetta with tomato and basil. You can also add an assortment of fine breads and serve them with spreads such as hummus or guacamole. To make the spread of canapés even more interesting, add delicacies such as tomato and basil focaccia, vegetable muffins, spring rolls, spicy masala poori and potato pierogies.
If you want to include some hot dishes to your vegan food menu, why not serve creamy vegetable soups in mini bowls or shot glasses! You can also include some mini versions of delicious vegan dishes to the menu such as vegetable curry, baked potatoes with herbs, vegan casserole and falafel burgers.
Choosing vegan food for your bridal shower menu doesn’t mean you will leave your guests without a fabulous dessert, so prepare some yummy treats to finish off your vegan feast. Use vegan dark chocolate to make vegan brownies, cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies, truffles and chocolate mousses. You can also serve fabulous vegan fruit tarts or non-dairy ice creams. Mug cakes are a great option for a bridal shower buffet because guests can just grab them and go. Be creative with mixing ingredients and serve more than one flavour to suit different tastes.
