How to Plan a Recipe Shower

First of all, let me be honest with you. Steve, Loren, Tyler J., nor I have ever been to a recipe shower.

However, we have been making the finest wood recipe boxes available since 1998 and countless customers have told us that they have bought our recipe boxes for baby and bridal showers. Simply, they have all been a big hit!

So, allow me to tell you what we have learned from our wonderful customers. It's as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. The shower planner sends about 3-5 blank recipe cards with each invitation. She asks the guests to fill the cards with their favorite recipes.
  2. The shower planner orders a recipe box from us. She should also choose to have the recipe box laser engraved with the first name or (new?) initials of the bride-to-be or mom-to-be.
  3. The guests present her with the beautiful, stuffed, personalized recipe box. She and her family will cherish it forever.

We would love to hear about your recipe shower. If you email us a detailed account of your recipe shower, you will receive 15% off your next order. Please email us at

"I just saw on  your web site that you want information about recipe showers.  Well here goes - My daughter was married 3 years ago and I purchased one of your recipe boxes for her shower.  The theme of the shower was palm trees - since they were going to Hawaii on their honeymoon.  I took the box to a trophy shop here and had a palm tree and Nicole's Recipes lasered on the top.  When I sent out the invitations I included a recipe card and asked guests to return their favorite recipe on the card along with the reply.

I organized the recipes and put them in their categories.  On the day of the shower the recipe box was displayed so that the guests, along with Nicole, could see the lovely box and the guests could see what we had done with them.

Several of my friends have ordered boxes from you to do the same thing - and I will be ordering one soon for my second daughter's wedding in July.

You do BEAUTIFUL work.  My daughter loves the box and especially all the recipes - that have proven to be delicious."

Thank you!
