Kitchen showers are often held at the home of the hostess or at a restaurant, but another idea is to hire a local chef to teach a cooking class for the bride and guests. You might consider giving aprons or kitchen towels as favors, which the guests can use during class.
Cooking and baking themed gifts are very popular choices for kitchen showers. Bake ware, appliances, linens and spices make wonderful gifts. It is also fun to share recipes. Make a note on the kitchen shower invitations to have guests bring a favorite recipe, and then collect them into a book to give to the bride.
Kitchen Games and Decorations
Instead of the usual party games, try something different for a kitchen shower. One cooking-related game is Recipe Mix-Up. Choose a recipe with many steps and write each part on an index card. Then have guests or teams figure out the correct order of the steps. Give a prize for the first one finished. Playing Guess the Ingredient is lots of fun. Pass small cups of common cooking ingredients to blindfolded players and see who can identify the most.
Instead of the usual guest book, have friends at the party sign a white plate or a plain, light-colored apron with permanent markers for a special keepsake. Use cookie cutters with guest’s names attached as place cards and party favors.
Use fresh flowers in tea or coffee pots, cups or serving bowls as a centerpiece or party decorations. You can also create arrangements of fresh fruits and vegetables instead of flowers as centerpieces or favors.
