Brunch Ideas for a Bridal Shower

Celebrate the bride by planning a brunch for her bridal shower. Planning a brunch is a great way to gather all the ladies and give the bride a day she’ll never forget. 

From French toast to frittatas, a brunch offers up yummy dishes everyone will enjoy. Another reason why I love the idea of a brunch for a bridal shower as it has this dainty and quaint feel perfect for a gathering with the girls. Here’s a few ideas to inspire you as you begin planning your brunch bridal shower.

If You Need a Theme, Make it a Boozy Brunch

Anytime booze is introduced before nightfall is always a brilliant idea. Take our tips here and turn it into a big boozy brunch bridal shower to celebrate the bride.


We have yummy recipes for a red wine French toast, a unique version of a Bloody Mary, and other yummy ideas for the brunch.

Take the Indoors Outside

Another creative idea popping up all over the wedding scene is using antique furniture as décor pieces outdoors. If you’re planning a bridal shower where the weather will be nice, take some of your indoor furniture outside for a shabby chic way to decorate for a brunch bridal shower.


You can set up food display on top of old chests and even use the drawers like featured here at this pretty bridal shower.

Have a Pancake Bar!

No brunch would be complete without mouth watering buttermilk pancakes. Since everyone likes their morning cakes a different way, set up a fun pancake bar. You can easily take inspiration from these pretty photos and create a pancake themed bridal shower brunch.


Setting up various types of syrups and toppings, people can make their own plate of pancakes with all their favorite fixings.

Try a More Stress Free Shower: Head to Your Backyard

As part of the bridal party, you're probably up to your ears in errands as you help the bride with her big day. To keep the stress levels low, choose a backyard to host the bridal shower in. Not only will it cut costs since you'll avoid paying venue fees, but a backyard brunch gives the even a more relaxing and low-key vibe.
