I have never planned a bridal shower before and what some insight for the menu we are thinking. The shower will be realitively small- around 20 people.
Quiche (spinach & mushroom and ham & cheese)
Fresh fruit (cantalope, grapes, berries, and pineapple)
Pastries (croissants, danishs, and muffins)
Yogurt and granola
Sandwiches (rolls, deli meat & grilled chicken, and cheese)
Drinks (coffee, tea, juice, milk, and mimosas)
Random (butter, jelly, sugar, and honey)
I feel like I am missing something, but I am not sure what. Any help is appreciated.

The only thing I can think of is something more overtly dessert. I know you have pastries as part of brunch, but I would probably skip them (or just do mini muffins) and have an actual dessert. But my group really just loves all things dessert.

This sounds amaaazzing! I would contemplate adding something dessert-y too though. Even just a simple brownie/cookie tray would be nice! But I’m also obsessed with dessert soooo hahah. I think everything you have sounds perfect.

akm57 : I would skipped the salad and add scrambled eggs or deviled eggs to be honest , i feel like the salad is so out of place.

akm57 : sounds great! Can I come? 😊
I too think something dessert based would be an amazing addition. When I’ve hosted a bridal shower I always do a mix of mini desserts in individual small dessert glasses. Usually some chocolate mousse with cream and cherries (black Forrest), Eton mess and a lemon curd cheesecake layered in a glass. They are easy to make, look like more effort than what they are to make and none are ever left over!

You can incorporate scones, would go nicely with the tea and might be a good choice for people who don’t want something savory. Otherwise, sounds very yum!

I think you have everything! I actually don’t think you really need the salads or the sandwiches with everything else

As a tea (not coffee drinker), I wouldn’t skimp on the quality. Harney & Sons is somewhat inexpensive, but miles better than “standard” cheap tea. Mighty Leaf and The Republic of Tea are also pretty good choices.
