Bridal Shower and Housewarming Party Game

bridal shower spice game

Guess That Spice is the perfect game for a kitchen bridal shower, especially at a vineyard or a restaurant. 

  • Put 10 different spices in 10 small jars and place on a nice small tray for each table.

  • Have guests write the names on a pre-designed sheet decorated with different influences from around the world, like Asian, or Indian.

  • You can have a "cheat" sheet with 30 or 40 spice names, including the ones they are guessing.

The one that gets the most right will win a spice rack that the bride has registered for and you could "hint" that she did so to everyone in case they wanted to give it to the bride.

Great game idea Tracey. It's always fun and a little challenging to test our senses.

I will assume that the little bottles are labelled 1-10 so that guesses transferred to paper correspond with each ot the numbers.  To assist those who may not have the time or tools to create guess sheets for their guests, I have prepared a Guess That Spice game sheet that can be downloaded and used.  SImply print one for each guest or team.

Alternatively, you could also display small bunches of fresh herbs with tags numbered 1-10 and use the same printable for the game.

For those creating a cheat sheet of spices, here are a few spices that are colorful and popular.

  • Cinnamon
  • Rosemary
  • Garlic
  • Cloves
  • Anise
  • Coriander
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Onion Powder
  • Cumin
  • Cardamom
  • Curry Powder
  • Paprika
  • Chili Powder
  • Dill Weed
  • Ginger
  • Chives
  • Mustard Seed
  • Nutmeg
  • Sage
  • Cayenne 
  • Thyme
  • Cilantro
  • Taragon

Great Idea 

You could let the participants know ahead of time that they will be trying to "Win a Spice Rack for the Bride". Then, you could give the winner the little sample spices used in the game so they would have something to show for their "knowledge" too.
