Baby Shower Foods

It’s no secret that baby shower foods are the main attraction of most baby showers! Sure, everyone wants to give a gift to the new mother to be and make sure that baby gets off to a good start, but it’s the food that brings us all together and helps make the day memorable.

When it comes to showers, or gatherings of any kind for that matter, there are always some dishes that stand out. There’s always those family favorites like Aunt Millie’s brownies and Cousin Sue’s meatballs. These dishes are a must at any family event and a baby shower is no exception.

But after the obligatory family favorites are on the menu, what other baby shower foods should you plan on?

Well, one thing you must consider are the beverages. It’s a food idea to have some sort of punch that is made with fruit and ginger ale. Also, you will want to have some sodas on hand as well as bottled water.

Another thing you will probably want is some sort of cold cut platter and, of course, the rolls to make sandwiches with. Depending on what the guests are bringing, you might want to make sure there are salads like a tossed salad, potato salad and macaroni salad handy.

Then you will want little snacky items like deviled eggs, crudites with dip, chips and even pretzels and nuts that folks can much on.

Of course, the best part about baby shower foods is the desserts! You should plan on having a cake that is decorated with the appropriate message but you also want to have other desserts like cookies, brownies and whatever else you can think of. There can never be enough desserts and, believe me, if there are nay left over I’m sure you can find some takers at the end of the shower to bring them home!
