Fruit salad is always a big hit.
Fruit trays
Veggie Trays
Tomato & Basil tray
Hummus
Patte
Raw Crackers
Raw Chips
Dip
Onion dip is always a big hit when we go to a gathering. It is one of Alissa's recipes.
Avocado/tomato salad
Carrot salad
Smoothies
Just a few ideas for you. Fruit is always a big hit with everyone because it is something most SAD eaters don't have everyday

Good Luck
Melissa

You might want to give your daughter a dehydrator as a gift so she can start-off her marriage on the raw foot.

peace,

Hi Aleesha,

I am sorry to hear that your daughter has gone the opposite of raw.

I got married myself earlier this year. My best friend threw me a bridal shower at her house at the end of April. (my wedding was in May)
I requested a durian, and we made a pudding out of durian and ripe bananas. We served it in little dessert glasses and it was very yummy. Most of my friends liked it and I finished whatever was left over .
My friend also prepared guagamole, hummus and lots of cut up fruit and veg, plus baked corn chips. She made a vegan carrot cake (baked) which I did not have, but everyone seemed to enjoy.
Also, we asked others to bring whatever they like to share, so we ended up with a mix of raw, vegan and vegetarian finger food. Everyone was happy!

It was a small afternoon garden party, very low key, but lots of fun for me!

Good luck with organizing your daughter's party!

Sounds like a wonderful wedding fruitlove!

i cant wait to have a wedding and make my own raw wedding cake, lol. unless i can find someone who can do it for me .

Alieesha, please do tell us what you end up making for the shower.
I think lots of fresh fruit with some yummy fruity dips would go over well.

blend bananas, berries, cashews, and touch of lemon juice.

And i like the idea of lots of veggie trays with dips, like fresh salsa, guacamole, hummus, etc..

i find that pesto stuffed mushy caps always go over well, even if you dont dehydrate them. Do you have a good pesto recipe?

no i don't. i really don't have anything and i'm starting to get a little stressed out thinking about what to serve.

i know for sure there will be a fruit plate and a raw vege plate. i wish i had more time to try out some recipes before making it for a bunch of people!

unfortunately, i'll probably end up with some cooked items, like little quiches or something... cause i'm really kinda lost. RAWbies want to come for a visit this weekend?

Sounds lovely!

It's so easy to put extra pressure and stress on ourselves when it's not necessary.

It's gonna be fab!

i agree! it feels so much better just to make this simple. i ordered the bread needed for the shower at the bakery today... so all i have to do is pick it up!

oh and the helium balloons as well!
