Preparing the Invitations For Your Recipe Themed Bridal Shower
To ensure that as many guests can attend the bridal shower as possible, try to mail out the invitations or announcements early. Include a recipe card with each invitation. Instruct each guest to fill out her favorite recipe on her card.
Some Ideas for Wording Your Recipe Themed Bridal Shower Invitations
If you are including recipe card inserts with your invitations, you’ll want to provide some instructions on the recipe card itself or on the invitation.
An alternative is not to provide the inserts, but instead to just ask guests to bring their favorite recipe to the shower with them. In this case, you might want to ask for a particular paper size. 8.5″x11″ paper is a good bet so that it fits easily in binders.
Here are some wording ideas for you to consider. You can get creative and make up your own recipe themed bridal shower invitation verse as well.
The perfect ingredients for a successful marriage:
lots of love, a pinch of spice and no shortage of answers to “What’s for dinner?”

Additional ideas for collecting recipes
These days, many family recipes are posted online. In addition to having each guest fill out a customized recipe card, you could ask each person to include a URL for the recipe as well if there is a URL available.
The bride-to-be will be able to access her favorite recipes from her computer as well, and she can even bookmark them so that they are always available.
Your guests can email you the links prior to the shower and you can collect them in a list to provide the bride. You could also print the recipes off and add them to the recipe binder you are creating.
Special instructions for large groups
If your bridal shower guest list is exceptionally large, you could divvy up the recipe cards into different categories.
Send requests for main dish recipes to one group of women, and send requests for dessert recipes to another.
You can also break them into categories like side dishes, soups and salads and beverages.
When you put the recipe binder together, you can sort it into different categories.
The bride-to-be will be thrilled by the huge assortment of recipes that she receives, and she’ll appreciate the fact that she can create entire meals from ideas in her binder.

25 Cheese-Themed Gifts That Aren't Just a Block of the Month Membership
What would a holiday celebration be without a little cheese?
We all have our vices. Maybe yours is a daily dose of dark chocolate, or a so bad it's good reality show. Or, perhaps, you simply can&rsquot get enough cheese. And who can blame you? It&rsquos salty, creamy, and delicious, whether it's served by itself, in or on pasta, on an elaborate charcuterie board, or coated in breadcrumbs and fried. If you know someone who loves cheese as much as you do, consider giving them a cheese-themed Christmas gift this holiday season.
The following 25 cheese-themed gifts are perfect for the cheese-loving foodie in your life who can't get enough of those sharp, and sometimes sweet, flavors that go on, well, just about anything. With a wide variety of gifts, including subscription boxes, cheese-themed soaps, beautiful board sets, and even cheese-like earrings, any one of these cheesy (pun intended!) Christmas presents will thrill that cheese aficionado in your life.
Wisconsin is known for its cheese, and this gift box allows the receiver to have a taste of eight of the state's different cheeses. There's a honey sriracha gouda, a dill havarti, a smoked mozzarella, and more. No on will blame you for purchasing one for yourself this holiday season, either.
This cheese-making kit helps beginners learn how to make homemade mozzarella, ricotta, burrata, goat, and mascarpone cheese. One five-star review raves, "We made the cheese and used it fresh on homemade pizza, fantastic."
This soap looks so realistic, guests may end up assuming you accidentally left a sandwich in the bathroom. The soap is one full piece so it won't fall apart when its used, and it also smells like green apple (not cheese), which is a fun twist.
Customize this cheese board with a name, wedding date, or other personalized message to make it a truly special gift. It also comes with a hidden drawer to house four cheese utensils (included), cutting down on space while being extra functional.
Who doesn't love a good pun about cheese? Plus, this card will make the recipient feel good about themselves when they remember that aging makes some things even better.
Give this bright accessory to someone who likes to wear their love of cheese on their sleeve &mdash or in this case, on their ears. They're cute and quirky, the perfect combo for a fun pair of earrings.
These gluten-free, non-GMO snacks come in three yummy cheesy flavors: cheddar, white cheddar, and cheddar jalapeño. Add them to a charcuterie board for a little extra crunch.
These cutting boards can be personalized with any recipe, so feel free to emblazon a favorite cheese-themed meal on the wood. Then it will be both functional for cutting and serving cheese and for cooking instructions.
Up their charcuterie board game with these pretty cheese markers. There's six in all to label the different products, and they're made out of sturdy stainless steel and brass.
This dainty piece of jewelry is the perfect, chic way to show off the recipient's love of cheese. It comes in silver or gold, and it's so cute everyone who sees it will want one too.
Cut a whole block of cheese in seconds with this "Wizard Slicer." Its metal slots keep slices uniform, and it comes in three colors to match whatever kitchen decor the receiver already has.
Deck the halls with wedges of cheese, fa la la la la, la la la la. This ornament looks good enough to eat, but really it'll just show off a household's love of dairy products when hung on the tree.
It's a charcuterie board in a box! This package comes with all the fixings for a yummy cheese plate: figs, olives, crackers, peppers, jam, and more. Just grab some of your favorite cheese and enjoy!
The best way to keep cheese is in a cheese vault. It wicks away moisture and allows the block to breathe so it doesn't mold. This vault can fit two different types of cheese with a divider between, or the divider can be taken out to fit a bigger block.
This cheese board can be monogrammed with any letter of the alphabet, and the indent makes the perfect place to keep meats and crackers to go with the cheese. It comes in a high-quality cherry, maple, or walnut wood.
For the ultimate cheese lover, this sticky note charcuterie set is the perfect office decoration. It's also totally functional as a memo pad.
Melted raclette cheese tastes so good, and this contraption brings what is traditionally a restaurant appetizer straight into your home. The heat lamp melts the cheese into a delicious gooey mass to be used in pasta, over meat, or on veggies.
This miniature fondue set can be heated with a tea light candle to melt the cheese, and it comes with two tongs to use for dipping bread, veggies, and more into the yummy sauce. It can even be used to melt chocolate for dessert.

Homemade Holiday Gift: Infused Vodka Recipes
Infused vodka is a fun and unique hostess gift for the holidays. Vodka can be infused with a variety of flavors from citrus to candy canes!
If you&rsquore like me, then you love shopping for Christmas gifts. It&rsquos never seemed like a chore to me to choose the perfect give for everyone on my list. Some years, I get my shopping done extremely early, and other years (like this one, for instance) I tend to spread my shopping out over a long period of time and perhaps even wait until *gasp* last minute to find the right gift.
That being said, I don&rsquot appreciate the multiple emails a day in my inbox that are telling me that &ldquotime is running out&rdquo and that &ldquothere is still time to choose those last minute gifts&rdquo. It&rsquos the first week of December! By no means is this last minute, and it irks me that stores try to get me all stressed out that I don&rsquot have my shopping done yet.
Just to prove to you that we all still have plenty of time to choose your holiday gifts, here is an awesome homemade edible gift idea that takes several days to make, but with very little actual hands on time. Yes, infused vodkas are easy, impressive and delicious, but they do take a few days to make. But no worries, right? We all still have plenty of time!
I&rsquove been wanting to try to make my own flavored vodkas for a while now. I love the idea of mixing unique combinations of flavors that lead to some very impressive cocktails. I decided to go with three flavors and played around a little with various winter and
For the Citrus Rosemary Vodka, I combined clementines with a bit of grapefruit and some aromatic rosemary. It&rsquos like a cocktail version of my Rosemary Citrus Spritzer. The Cranberry Orange Vodka has notes of cinnamon and clove for a warm, holiday feel and the Candy Cane Vodka is full of pepperminty flavor. Simply place vodka and your desired flavor infusers in a mason jar and allow to steep until the the vodka has taken on the flavor of your added ingredients. The process couldn&rsquot be simpler!
These vodkas make perfect hostess gifts for the holidays, especially when decanted into fancy bottles or even sweet little mason jars. Tie a hand stamped gift tag around each bottle for a complete package. Don&rsquot let your email inbox bully you into thinking you&rsquove run out of time. Relax, make some infused vodka and sip on a yummy holiday cocktail. You totally have time!
