Baby showers are a great way to let your best friend who’s about to be a mother, enjoy the appreciation of her close friends and relatives with the added bonus of gifts, and food might be the first thing on your mind when you’re thinking of planning one.
Here are a few fun ideas that you can indulge in.
1. Cupcake Centrepiece
One cannot go wrong with cupcakes. These can be even custom designed depending on the theme of the party or the interests of the baby and mama. A pink or blue pastel decorations are the classic go-to. These can even be used with food tags to give a more elegant touch.
2. Ice Cream Bar
A DIY ice cream tops just about anything. Having a fun ice cream bar station will allow the guests to make their own custom flavoured ice creams and to have toppings of their choice. So, are you a sprinkles kind of person or a chocolate sauce kind of person?
Simple yet elegant, popcorn is a food that no one refuses. It can be taken to the next level by using chocolate flavoured popcorn packed in cute ‘ready to pop’ covers to emphasize the importance of the mommy-to-be.
4. Chocolate Spoons
They’re easy to make, can be personalised and are super tasty, which makes them the best kind of party treat. Dip the spoons into melted chocolate of your liking and then freeze them. Serve them with toppings like choco-chips or candy.
5. Fruit Platter
To balance out all the super sweet, yummy stuff that you’ll be dishing out, consider a fruit platter, which is equally yummy and also gives all those healthy friends of yours something to not complain about. It never hurts to decorate it to the theme of the baby shower.
6. Mini Burgers
Something sweet is the way to go for a baby shower, but having mini burgers or pizza is a great way to ensure the savoury buds of your guests are satisfied. Just make sure the mother of honour is not queasy to any of the items used to make them.
7. Chips and Dips
Any excuse to indulge in some chip and dip action is always welcome. What’s a bigger excuse than a baby shower? Just make sure to provide your guests with napkins if you’re against staining your carpets.
8. Fruit Punch
Looking for a drink to serve at the baby shower? A fruit punch is one that quenches your thirst and also looks great placed on the serving table. Include fresh fruits like berries and lemon to add depth to the flavour.
