Baby Shower Menu Ideas

One of the most important parts of throwing a baby shower is what to server to the guests. While showers can comprise anything from snacks to full meals, most of them fall somewhere in between. Here are some baby shower menu ideas that might help you plan your baby shower.

1. Ice Breakers – Ice breakers are those little snacks that people can carry around with them when they first get to the shower. I don’t know why, but for some reason standing with a little plate of food can make you feel a bit more comfortable and talking about the tasty snacks can help you “break the ice” with other guests.

For ice breaker food, I like to serve things like deviled eggs, cut up veggies and dip, fruit with dip and chips and pretzels. These should be little foods that people can nibble on while they are waiting for the main event.

2. Solid Eats – Once the gift opening is done, it’s usually time for some serious eating. Once again, you will have guests walking around with tiny plates trying to balance their food so you don’t want to serve anything that is too large for this part of your baby shower menu. Finger sandwiches, small hot foods like swedish meatballs and kielbasi and things like salads (both green and potato and macaroni) usually work pretty good for this.

3. Dessert – There’s always room for dessert and, in fact, this is pretty much everyone’s favorite part of the shower so don’t be afraid to have plenty. Brownies and cookies are a standby at any shower but you will probably also want to have a cake that is decorated for the occasion. And, where there is cake, there is ice cream so plan on some of that too!

4. Drinks – Be sure to have plenty of liquid refreshments for your guests to wet their whistle with. A punch is always nice but you should also have soda and bottled water for those that don’t like the taste of punch.
