A Delicious Baby Shower Food Planning Guide Try to imagine a baby shower without the baby shower food. It wouldnt be nearly as enjoyable, would it? The guests might start to get hungry, thirsty, even grouchy! To be sure, the baby shower food is an essential element for a successful baby shower. It is a tasty touch that everyone enjoys! With such importance placed on the menu, it would be wise for you to plan your baby shower food carefully. Here are 6 considerations that you should make when planning your baby shower menu: 1. How many people are coming? If many people are coming (15 or more), it would be a LOT of work to plan an entire meal for everyone. Rather, fingerfood, beverages, and appetizers would be perfect. Sandwiches and soups might be a good idea. But if you only have a small group coming (less than 10), then a full meal might not be too much work. It all depends on how much effort you want to put into the baby shower menu. 2. What time of day is the baby shower? You want your food and menu to reflect the respective time of day. For example, if you have a baby shower in the afternoon, a light lunch would be more appropriate than breakfast food. 3. What is the baby shower theme? Making food to match your theme adds an extra touch to your baby shower that really emphasizes your theme, adds to the atmosphere, and impresses everyone who sees it. This is a party! Food should be fun! 4. What type of people are coming to the shower? When I say "type" I mean: are your guests more the "BBQ chicken and potato salad" type or "Shrimp platter with vinaigrette salad wraps" type? Know your guests and choose the baby shower menu accordingly. 5. How much time do you have? Most likely, you dont have much spare time. So, simple is best. Simple doesnt mean plain or boring, it just means choosing baby shower menu items that are easy and fast to prepare. There are many great recipes for simple yet delicious appetizers, snacks, and beverages. Make as many or as few as you think will satiate your guests. 6. Is anyone going to help you prepare the baby shower food? If there is one area that you are going to ask help for, I would suggest that this be the one! Assigning several other friends or family members of the expectant mother to prepare food will save you a LOT of time and work. Not that preparing baby shower food is hard, it isnt. Its just that you, as the hostess, have so many other things to plan for. So having a few people each bringing one or two baby shower menu items will save you a lot of work. Plus, you wont have to be running around the day of the shower making sure that the food is ready. You can take comfort in the fact that the party food is taken care of and you can focus on finishing everything else! There are several types of food that can be served at a baby shower: appetizers, beverages, salads & sandwiches, a full meal, and/or desserts. Your baby shower menu could consist of any combination of those types of baby shower food. A typical baby shower menu includes at least 3 foods and 1 beverage. For example, you could serve chicken salad sandwiches, a vegetable tray with dip, chocolate turtle brownies, and pink baby shower punch. This type of menu would please your guests, and yet wouldnt be too much work to prepare (and wouldnt be too expensive either!). Every baby shower is different, thus, every baby shower menu is different, as well. Just remember the 6 baby shower food planning tips above, and you are sure to plan both a successful and a DELICIOUS baby shower!
