Gourmet/ Fancy BBQ - Bridal Shower

I'm in the beginning phases of planning my sister's shower for late summer. It's going to be at  my parent's house (indoors if it's really hot/rainy; outdoors/indoors if it's nice out). I want to do a gourmet BBQ theme - grilled shrimp, chicken kebabs, grilled pineapple, etc.

Any other ideas for food? I'll probably do a few salads - pasta, potato, etc., but looking for some other sides.... TIA

Re: Gourmet/ Fancy BBQ - Bridal Shower

  • What about grilled or roasted vegetables? Or vegetable kebabs?


  • -Orzo pasta salad with sliced herry tomates, fresh mozzarella, basil, some italian dressing

    -Grilled stone fruits with a balsamic reduction sauce or mascarpone

    -Roasted corn salad with herb feta and olive oil

    -Summer pudding with fresh vanilla whip cream

    I CANNOT wait until summer!


  • watermelon boat (fruit salad in hollowed watermelon - you can have their names or wedding date cut out of it... check local delis for who might be able to help)

    light lemon tarts or something similar for desserts...

    I don't know who lurks everywhere, but the women on what's cooking have been amazing at helping me plan menus
  • a nice assortment of salads to go with your seafood & meats.  like red skin & dill potato salad, orzo salad served in tomato cups, corn salad, bean salad, tomato & mozzarella salad (or you could do that on mini skewers) and a fresh fruit display or platter
