Yummy Baby Shower Foods

Do you need some ideas for baby shower foods? The food for your baby shower must be yummy, and easy for you to prepare as well.

You have too much to do with out stressing out about the food. With all the food ideas below, you'll be well on your way to hosting a fabulous shower without breaking a sweat.

1. Discuss With Mom

Be sure and write down everything you plan on serving and let the Mom-to-be look over your plans. You do not want to serve something she is allergic to or just can't eat because of heartburn or the such. Unless this is a surprise baby shower. Then you will want to talk to friends and family members to check on food likes and dislikes.

2. Be Mindful of Your Budget

Most people have to go by a budget when planning any party. If you have the money for a caterer, then great. If not, then you'll have to get more creative with your budget. Sometimes you can get great appetizers ready made at the grocery store. Don't think that just because you make it from scratch that it is going to be cheaper. Not so. I usually do a mix of the two. Make some things and purchase some things.

3. What Time of Day is Your Shower?

The time of day that you're having the shower will determine the type of baby shower menu you will have. If your shower is before noon you'll want to serve brunch. That's just a combination of lunch and breakfast. You'll want to serve things like bagels, muffins, small sandwiches, fruit and yogurt, fruit juices, coffee, hot tea, cookies, and tarts. Keep it light and simple.

If you're having the shower in the evening, you can serve a sit down meal. Make sure you specify what you're doing in your invite so your guests will arrive hungry. This is a little more complicated. You'll need to serve a salad, meat, vegetables, and dessert.

If the shower is in between meals, just serve appetizers. Finger foods are really the best choice for a baby shower. So easy to eat and easy for you to prepare. Some great appetizer ideas are sandwiches, chips and dip, crackers and spread, fruit kabobs, fruit and fruit dip, vegetable tray with dip, meat and cheese tray, tortilla roll-ups, chicken wings, meat balls, and pigs in a blanket. Dip any fruit in melted chocolate and you have a very elegant treat.

4. Go With Your Theme

A really great food idea for a baby shower is to go along with your theme that you have chosen. You'll find plenty of ideas for this on the theme pages. It's as simple as adding peas to your salad when doing a Sweet Pea theme. Or strawberry treats for a Strawberry Shortcake shower. Shaped cookies and sandwiches are a great way to bring in any theme. Crowns, flowers, animals, butterflies, ect. Just use cookie cutters to make your shapes. Make your sandwiches and use a cookie cutter to create any shape you desire.

5. Cakes

The cake is always the highlight of any party or shower. You can make a cake in the shape of your shower theme, or just bake a plain cake and add a topper. That's by far the easiest way to create a sensational cake. Or make it even easier and purchase your base cake and add your own baby items or flowers. So simple and yet very elegant. The topper doesn't have to be edible. Just take it off of the cake before cutting the cake to eat. Cupcakes are a really great idea for baby showers. Make them to match your theme and stack on pretty cake plates.
