One of the earliest accounts of bridal showers came from 16th century Belgium. A young girl from wealth wanted to marry a charitable village miller, but her father said no. When he threatened to take away her dowry, the village people showered the couple with hundreds of gifts. Nowadays, we honor the couple by throwing a bridal shower, where food, cake, and drinks are served while the bride opens gifts from friends and family. If it is time for someone you love to get married, host the shower at Blackhawk Grille.
Excellent Food and Service
Bridal showers have become very customary during the wedding process, but they certainly don’t have to be elaborate. To take the stress off the person planning the event, invite a few close friends to brunch, lunch, or dinner at Blackhawk Grille. Our menu consists of sophisticated classics, from brunch entrees, like our Grilled Skirt Steak and Eggs, to dinner mains, like the Arugula Pesto Spinach Fettucine. There is something for everyone on the menu, and the bride will love enjoying an elegant meal while chatting and laughing among beloved friends and family.
Plenty of Space
We also understand that bridal showers can become very large as the bride keeps adding people to the guest list. Don’t worry yourself with endless details. Blackhawk Grille also has group dining facilities perfect for parties over 30 people. Enjoy the fresh summer breeze and choose our Magnolia Lane or Waterfront Patio for the shower. Relax in our indoor spaces like the Blackhawk Bar or Mimosa Tree Room for a stylish brunch or invite everyone the bride knows and rent out the entire restaurant! Contact our sales team online or by phone to book your shower well in advance.
Host at Home
While we hope you choose to host the shower at our restaurant, we know some brides want to be in the comfort of a special home or venue. Blackhawk Grille caters pre-lunch or dinner platters of seasonal fruits, vegetables, meats, and seafood. Forget cooking and cleaning up the shower space, and order a few of our trays that serve up to 12 people at a time. Favorites include our Cucumber Cups, Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms, Chicken Sliders, and Mini Crab Cakes. Arrange for your platters to be picked up or delivered today, so you can finish planning other details.
Bridal showers have slowly evolved into actual events over the past few centuries. They can be anything from small gatherings to elaborate parties. Whichever way the bride wants to celebrate, Blackhawk Grille will help in any way possible.
