Create a Paris Inspired Bridal Shower with French Hors-d’oeuvres
If you’re planning a Paris-themed bridal shower that you want to be awesomely authentic and amazingly appetizing, whip up some of these délicieux hors- d’oeuvres:
- Gougères (cheese puffs) — These light-as-a-feather French treats feature a delightfully doughy texture surrounding a heavenly cheese filling. Gougères are said to come from the town of Tonnerre, in Burgundy, and are most commonly made with a gruyere cheese center.
- Brioche with dip — It’s no soiree without a bit of croissant. Pair your fresh-baked brioche with a dreamy dipping sauce, like melted camembert cheese or a sweet cinnamon and sugar sauce, for a fun French finger food that’s perfect for tasting.
- Brie and raspberry tartlettes — This crispy, crunchy pre-dinner dessert is bursting with sweet, savory flavors and looks adorable, too. Lightweight and refreshing, this appetizer is absolutely ideal for an summertime shower or spring garden party.
- Cheese spread — You can’t have a French-themed party without a full complement of French cheeses. Get a slate cheeseboard or make labels and be sure to include all of the French favorites, including brie, muenster, camembert, gruyere and plenty of varieties of bleu.
