Whether you have a large or small group of people at your baby shower, a cheeseboard is always a great idea and one of the best baby shower food ideas you could have.
You won’t believe just how easy they are to put together. Pick out three or four types of different cheeses (soft, semi-soft, semi-hard, and hard). Blue cheese is a great choice if you love something with a strong taste.
Then, add a bunch of different types of food, such as cured meats, some crackers, or toasted baguettes, and don’t forget to finish off with some mouth-watering fruits and nuts.
Finding the perfect appetizers to treat guests to at a baby shower isn’t an easy task, but I’m sure your guests will be delighted at the opportunity to feast on these delicious cheeseball bites, loaded with flavor.
They will bring so much elegance to your baby shower menu and are a fun way to serve soft cheeses.
Add something different to your baby shower menu by serving these divine oven-baked halloumi bites to your guests.
Coated with some crispy sesame and Panko breadcrumbs, and a delicious salty halloumi center, no one will want to miss out on a heavenly bite, especially after it’s been dipped in the addicting sweet and spicy hot honey.
You can’t really go wrong with an Italian pasta salad. It’s such a popular choice at a baby shower and is a perfect addition to a buffet table. Nothing beats delicious food, and your baby shower guests are going to be so impressed with this salad full of wonderful ingredients such as pillowy tortellini, salami, mozzarella, olives, tomatoes, and more, smothered together in a luxurious Italian dressing made with olive oil, red wine vinegar, dried herbs, and Parmesan cheese.
A baby shower brunch is traditionally a laid-back and relaxed celebration and conveniently combines the best of breakfast and lunch.
Set out a large spread full of wonderful brunch party food such as bagels, French toast, fresh fruit, and a hearty egg dish that can be the centerpiece of your brunch.
Pregnant women have dietary restrictions, so make sure you check in with the mom-to-be and your other guests to find out if anyone has any specific food allergies or intolerances that you need to accommodate for.
If you are looking for a fun way to serve fresh fruit at your baby shower look no further. Serve fruit kabobs by picking out your favorite fruits and thread them onto skewers to create these healthy sweet treats.
For an added bonus whip some strawberry cream cheese and vanilla Greek yogurt to make a creamy and delicious dip.
