I am looking for some fun games to play at a bridal shower. I have searched on here in the file section and only came up with 2 games. What does everyone else play or have any suggestions?

Thank you,

Here's one I like: take an arrangement of tools and put them on the large bar pan or a cutting board or a tray etc. Things like the stainless whisk, Mix 'N Chop, scrapers and so forth. Have the bride go around to all of the guests carrying the pan/board/tray with the tools on it and show them what is on there. Let them know you'll be asking some questions, so take a good look. Then have the bride carry the tray away and go into another room. The questions will then be centered on the bride: what color is her shirt? When is the wedding? What is her eye color etc.

I do that one, too. It's so much fun to hear the groans of those who focused totally on what's on the tray. LOL!

I do a lot of bridal showers and typically play the game mentioned above with the tray of items, but then ask about the bride. The (happy) issue I'm having is that I am starting to do second and third showers with the same group of ladies (bookings for sisters, cousins, etc.) and you can't trick them every time! :)

I just came up with another idea - maybe it's been used, but I haven't seen it in the bridal shower thread. It's called Bridal Bingo. I've made up a list of 75 words that could be used through my show. Then, I go to Perceptus' Free Bingo Card Generator and copy those words into a form and the site will generate free customized bingo cards. You could call off words just like BINGO, but I'm going to use the honor system and have people check them off as I use them in the demo. I'll bring Season's Best cookbooks for prizes and let people only win a traditional BINGO once - I'll then encourage them to keep playing until someone gets a Blackout. My thoughts on this is that it will keep guests engaged and listening to the demo (I'm always the "sous chef" to the bride - she does the demo, I assist). Also, I'll encourage questions from the guests that might lead to me saying a word on their card.

In case you want to do this and don't have time to generate a list, my words are listed below. You can cut and paste. You'll notice a couple that are more specific to me as a consultant, so you can change them out.

How about a game of "Pin the Excuse on Hubby." It'll be good experience in case the marriage doesn't work out.

This is not a game, but fun to read at the bridal shower:

Diary of a Successful New Bride/Cook

Dear Diary:
Monday:
Now home from honeymoon and settled in our new home. It’s fun to cook for Bill. Today I made an angel food cake and the recipe said “Beat 12 eggs separately”. Well, I don’t have enough bowls to do that, so I had to borrow enough bowls to beat the eggs in. The cake turned out fine.

Tuesday:
We wanted a fruit salad for supper. The recipe said “Serve without dressing”. So, I didn’t dress. But, Bill happened to ring a friend home for supper that night. Did they ever look startled when I served the salad.

Wednesday:
I decided to serve rice and found a recipe which said, “Wash thoroughly before steaming the rice”. So, I heated some water and took a bath before steaming the rice. Sounded kinda silly in the middle of the week. I can’t say it improved the rice any.

Thursday:
Today Bill asked for salad again. I tried a new recipe. It said “Prepare ingredients, then toss on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving”. I hunted all over the garden by my mom’s. So, I tossed my salad into the bed of lettuce and stood over there one hour so the dog would not take it. Bill came over and asked if I felt all right. I wonder why?

Friday:
Today I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said “Put all ingredients in a bowl and beat it.” Beat it I did, right over to my Mom’s house. There must have been something wrong with the recipe, because when I came back home again it looked the same as when I left it.

Saturday:
Bill went shopping today and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday. I’m sure I don’t know how hens dress for Sunday. I never noticed back on the farm, but I found a doll dress and some little shoes. I thought the hen looked real cute. When Bill saw it, I wondered why he counted to 10.

Sunday:
Today Bill’s folks came to dinner. I wanted to serve roast, but all we had in the icebox was hamburger. So, I put it in the oven and set the controls for roast. There must be a problem with the oven, because it still came out hamburger.

Monday:
I was going to bake bread today. The recipe said “Mix well and knead well. Then stand in a warm place until double in bulk.” I just won’t bake bread if I have to double in bulk.

Goodnight Dear Diary: This has been an exciting week. I am eager for tomorrow to come, so I can try a new recipe on Bill.

Brenda, This is wonderful! I have a new recruit and her first show is going to be a Bridal Shower. She's been asking for some things to include. I believe this will be great. Thanks for sharing. This is a great network!

Thanks, Cindy!! I just made and printed some BINGO cards. I think this would be a great way to have guests stay focused during any demo, and a fun game that takes very little work on my part. GREAT! THANKS!
