Tangy Garlic Aioli: Cheese, crackers, and fresh veggies are a bridal shower staple, but they can be a bit expected. Jazz them up by serving interesting dips and spreads alongside. This tangy garlic aioli kicks things up a notch, but you could also make a sweet/savory Pineapple Cheese Ball, a green goddess dressing, or a spicy remoulade.
So if you fall into the camps of "the bride already has enough stuff" and "bridal shower games are dumb," a non_traditional shower is probably the way to go. Another reason to break with tradition? If you want to celebrate someone who's already having another shower thrown for her. For example, if she's having a standard tea, cake, and games bash given by her female relatives, you could host a non_traditional shower for her college friends. Or, she might be having a shower in her hometown, but you're a friend in the place she lives now.
