I have my first Bridal Shower coming up next week. I just got off the phone with the lady who is having it, and she told me she doesn't care what we make, it just needs to be fancy. I had told her I would purchase the ingredients and she could just pay me back. She told me the bride-to-be has already had one shower, and it was all very wealthy people that showed up for it. Any suggestions on what I could make that would be "fancy"? She also told me she is expecting around 21 people to show up.
 
Fancy but simple...The Cheesey Spinach and the Parmesean Rosemary Pinwheels from the Fall/Winter 2003 Celebrations... https://www.pamperedchef.com/repsonly/product_information/celebrations.html look really tasty but are simple. I myself haven't made them but they appear to be a "dressier" type of appetizer. There is also the Seafood Pastry Round that looks fancy too! Fall/Winter 2004

Sounds goodThose do sound really good and really easy. Thanks for that tip.
 
I don't know how fancy they are, but the Berries and Cream in Wonton Cups sounds like a fun, light dessert. ANd a little different. That's the first thing that popped into my head. I haven't done a Pampered Bride show yet, but will be in September, so let us all know how it goes!
 
No problem...Thursday is my 1st show and I've been looking for something that highlights everything I got in my SS kit and this looks like it will fit the bill perfectly! And I didn't even think of it before helping you! 2 birds - one stone (No pun intended)!!!!! :p
 
a nice vegetable tray with crinkle cut veggies would be nice. Cheese cut with the creative cutters would be nice as well. Both of those would be nice fillers.
 
sorry for the overuse of the word nice. I just caught that.

Wow ThanksWow all that stuff sounds great. I was also kind of thinking the stuffed cherry tomatoes might look fancy. Anyone remember which cookbook they are in?

Pampered BridalYou could always make the rings or wreath recipes, which might impress. I do the wreath on the Rectangle stone and make it into two separate rings (using one can of crescent rolls each) and had the rings intertwined in the middle of the stone to symbol the wedding rings!! I've attached a bridal show outline for your guidence too that may help you a little!!
Cheers,
Angela

How 'bout the brie from last Season's Best? It's delicious. I made the Berries and Cream Wonton Cups for my son's rehearsal dinner. Beautiful...

At my first Bridal Show, I asked my director what she suggested to make. She said she likes to make the Chicken Clubhouse Squares out of "All The Best" They are great and serve more than the 12 the recipe says, since each guest gets two of the squares, and they don't all take that many. The host had already ordered a decorated cake, so I didn't make a dessert recipe with it, but I did offer to bring the 3 Pampered Chef dips if she wanted chips or veggies with it, and that went well. The Chicken Clubhouse squares are elegant appetizers. There was quite a big crowd, and it ended at over $1100.
The showers are even more fun than a regular kitchen show. Good luck!
