Cupcakes and Cocktails bridal shower?

I'm thinking of doing this for my soon to be SIL's shower. It will be a small group of ladies, ranging in age from 20-70. I was thinking to have it at 2pm. Have the cupcakes and cocktails (or mini cupcakes and mini cocktails?), light appetizers (maybe 4-5 selections), and coffee/tea.

Do you think that would be okay? Any ideas?

Re: Cupcakes and Cocktails bridal shower?

  • If the shower is at 2pm, I would do the mini cocktails/cupcakes. I am not a drinker, so 2 pm seems strange. But if you know your group, then do what fits best. It is a super cute idea.
  • Super cute idea but I would have it at 7pm.
  • Super cute! At my friend's shower we had champagne cocktails. It was afternoon and we had a great time.

    I am the first to tout "It's 5 o'clock somewhere" lol.

    I think cocktails at 2 are fine as long as you have some apps with bread and protein. 

    Sugary cupcakes plus sugary cocktails could put some in a figurative coma. 

     

  • What a cute idea!  I think that 2 pm is just fine, especially since you say that there will be older people attending.  It would be a shame if they didn't attend because they didn't want to drive in the dark.

    As far as the food and drinks goes, sounds like you are going to have a good selection for people to choose from. 

    Have fun!

  • My bridal shower was like this...  we had a couple different tea type sandwhiches and a huge desert buffet.  For drinks we had coffee and tea, pop, water and a champagne fountain.

  • I love the idea. ?My bridal shower was dessert-only and champagne punch, and it was soooo good!!! :) ?It was in the afternoon, but I'm not sure about the time....I think it was at 3pm.
  • Cocktail parties are generally in the early evening so I wouldn't call it a "cupcakes and cocktails" party unless it was after 5pm. 

    Nothing wrong with a "cupcakes and champagne" theme though - that would certainly work for 2pm!

    Everything else sounds fab.
