Seasonal Sangrias

Sangria is a fantastic choice for any bridal shower because you can easily make a large quantity, and it's even better if you make it a day in advance. For a fall bridal shower, try this recipe using white wine, cider, and fresh apples.

Simple Sweets

Particularly if you are hosting a bridal shower at home, space to sit might be at a premium. If some of your guests will have to stand to eat, choose more simple (yet still festive) desserts that don't require utensils. Choose a fall flavored cake and complementary frosting and serve cupcakes instead.
