I’ve always loved the episode of Sex and the City when Miranda insists that Charlotte provide fried chicken at her baby shower. I love the idea—after all, a shower is supposed to be all about the mom-to-be! But if your guests want something other than the guest of honor’s requested fried pickles and praline ice cream, here are some delicious food ideas for a baby shower at any time of day.
A Breakfast Baby Shower
If the mom-to-be loves comfort food, treat her to a stylish shower full of homey favorites like this breakfast pizza from Yum Sugar. Just don’t forget the mimosas (and sparkling cider for the pregnant lady!).
A Baby Shower Brunch
If the mom-to-be likes to sleep in, push back your start time for a festive brunch shower. Include plenty of sweet and savory options that match your theme, and remember to keep dishes light—like this elegant puffed pancake with fruit salad from Country Living.
Lunchtime with the Ladies
Provide a mix of finger foods that encourage noshing all afternoon long with these elegant kabobs, open-faced sandwiches and mini-cheesecake bites from Better Homes & Gardens.
An Afternoon Baby Shower Tea Party
Think posh and proper for your tea party treats, from classic tea sandwiches, cookies, cakes and tarts. This look from Country Living is perfect for an Alice in Wonderland-style event!
