Bridal showers originated centuries ago during the days of dowries. When women wanted to marry "unsuitable" husbands, their families refused to provide a dowry, so friends of the couple gathered to pitch in and make up for the lack of a dowry by helping them set up their home. Today, bridal showers are a time to share stories and advice, eat and drink, and pay special attention to the bride.
Mini Frittata: Since your guests will likely be standing up to eat, you don't want the food to be too complicated. These are hearty and filling but can be eaten with one hand. They look elegant on a platter as well and are equally good hot or room temperature.
