Bridal Shower- Tried and True Recipes party

Every bride needs to have a collection of recipes for everyday use. So, guests at this party will give her a head start.

Centerpiece idea:
This card holder can display pictures and a few recipes of the food served on that day.
Candles can be put around the holder.

How :
Ask the guests to bring their best dish, along with the recipe written on cards provided by the host. The host also has to have to provide a recipe holder to keep all the recipe cards.

The event starts with the guests introducing their dish, and the reason they chose to bring it. And then the feast begins...
