Sweet Treats For The Bride-To-Be

Posted: Friday, March 26, 2004

Legend has it that the first bridal shower was given in honor of a Dutch bride intent on marrying a poor miller. The bride was refused a dowry but opted to marry despite the threat of poverty. To comfort the distressed couple, the groom's friends "showered" the bride with gifts for their new home. Since then, the practice has become a tradition for brides-to-be. This year, instead of honoring the bride-to-be with the standard shower, spoil her with delicious desserts and get all the guests involved. With the new A Taste of Tupperware Decadent Desserts party from Tupperware, the blushing bride will get to indulge in delicious desserts, sample innovative products and spend time with loved ones.

Set the theme early: Get creative with the announcement and send guests an essential baking tool, such as a spatula, measuring spoons or whisk. Print the party details on a recipe card and include an extra one, encouraging guests to bring their favorite dessert recipe to the shower. The bride will walk away with a box full of recipes from her nearest and dearest.

Entertaining is a piece of cake: Traditionally, the bride's maid of honor or a close friend hosts the shower. To minimize stress for those involved in the planning, try the new A Taste of Tupperware Decadent Desserts Party, the ultimate environment for preparing scrumptious treats, learning about innovative products, new recipes, and shopping, while enjoying the company of family and friends! Partygoers will enjoy preparing simple and delicious desserts made with five ingredients or less with the assistance of an expert Tupperware consultant. In addition to learning and sampling delectable treats, guests can also purchase kitchen essentials for the bride-to-be.

Sweet and simple fare: For an afternoon dessert party, the menu doesn't need to be elaborate. Offer guests a variety of beverages and let sweets be the main attraction. With the new A Taste of Tupperware Decadent Desserts Party, a delectable spread of home-baked goodies is made with love by the shower guests, and might include Buttery Chocolate Toffee Squares, Chocolate Caramel Cookies, Key Lime Pie, Chocolate Truffles or Lemon Bars, all made with five ingredients or less.

Throw the bride in your life a party she'll never forget. For more information about easy and delicious recipes, Tupperware products or A Taste of Tupperware parties, call (888) 919-8099 or visit www.tupperware.com.
