An embarrassment of riches is an idiom that means an overabundance of something, or too much of a good thing, that originated in 1738 as John Ozell's translation of a French play, L'Embarras des richesses (1726)
Example: "All four of them have their own cars but there's no room in the driveway—an embarrassment of riches".
