For me, the big part of planning a baby shower is the baby shower menu. I don't have a lot of time to cook so I generally keep food simple.
Here is a basic baby shower menu that I put together recently. It is made up of really easy to make items.
Appetizers: vegetable platter with dip & spinach dip with pita triangles/bowl of tortilla chips
Light Lunch: Sandwich Platter (Cucumber Sandwiches, Egg Salad Sandwiches & Tuna Sandwiches) along with pasta salad and spring mix salad.
Dessert: Vanilla Cake with buttercream frosting, chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting, strawberry tarts and a fruit platter.
Drinks: I usually purchase bottles of sparkling juice and chill them the night before the party. The bottles are usually pretty so I just bring out a bottle or two at a time and leave them out. I also purchase Iced Tea as I find it is usually a favourite. I pour the iced tea into a pretty jug though, so that it looks nicer. :)
There are so many simple foods to consider when putting together a baby shower menu. These are just a few ideas. I hope you find this simple party menu to be helpful and please feel free to comment with what your party food favorites are!
