Whenever a holiday weekend comes around, no matter what the holiday, I go into full-on baking mode. No cookbook is safe, no pan left clean. So as I was scouring my favorite cooking blogs for inspiration, I also found some great recipes for a Southern-inspired (and highly ladylike) bridal shower brunch. Between the Bourbon Sweet Tea cocktails (courtesy of my personal favorite food blog, Joy the Baker) and the super-adorable petit-fours, this menu is bound to be a crowd pleaser.

Petit-fours: King Arthur Flour

Macarons: Coquette & Dove
