Baby Shower Recipes

 

Don’t know where to start when you’re planning a baby shower? Well one of the memorable moments of the day has to do with the FOOD! Not only does a person see how the mom-to-be is adorably glowing, but also the scrumptious spread of food for baby showers. So here are some things to keep in mind when planning on the menu:

How many people will be attending?

If more than 10 people are coming being in charge of the meal is a lot of work. So you can choose to have finger foods, and beverages. If several people are throwing the shower, everyone can share in the duties by splitting out portions of the menu.

Is there a theme to the shower?

This can turn out to be fun and not so overwhelming with a theme involved. Many baby showers consist of light, elegant, and pretty displays of food. Others are more casual like a barbeque and salads. Just decide what would work for your party and have fun planning it.
