I think you should reconsider adding some non sweet options. If I was at that shower, I would be maxed out on sugar and carbs after like 2 treats and still be hungry, unless I specifically knew it was just desserts.

@FutureMrsBess:  That may be what she wants, but what about your other guests? I think I would be sugared out. But if the bride is 100% against non-sweet things (and you don’t have any diabetics), then make sure you put on the invitation that it’s a dessert shower.

@FutureMrsBess:  You can still honor the brides wishes and have a cheese/cracker platter. Cheese and dessert goes together well anyway.

The quantities seem more than adequate.  I will concur with previous posters–if I attended that shower, I would eat nothing other than a fruit kabob or two, and if it lasted for any length of time, would probably be secretly resentful.  It may be what the bride wants, but if you are the host you have an obligation to take all of your guests into consideration. 

Also, with all those sweets, you will want to serve tea and coffee as well.

@FutureMrsBess:
+1 yes I was going to suggest cracker & cheese platter in place of candy! I’d get 4 dozen mixed cupcakes and cancel the doughnuts as well.
