I'm hosting a bridal shower in June. It will be held on a Sunday afternoon from 2-5. There will be 15ish guests, all women (and a few girls). I'm a bit perplexed about what to serve. Normally at that time of day I'd do a "tea" with scones, little sandwiches, treats, etc. but I feel like that has played out (I've hosted at least two teas that most of these guests have attended).
So far I'm thinking about doing a few substantial salads (a green one, a grain one, a pasta once, another specific veggie), great bread and a variety of cheese, fruit and two kinds of cupcakes for dessert.
Does anyone have any menu suggestions to make this make sense and be a special event? A big note is that my household is vegetarian (fish like salmon and tuna are okay, as is all dairy and eggs) though the guest of honor is not.
