8 Irresistible Recipes for Baby Showers
Oh, baby! A friend or family member is expecting a new bundle of joy, and that’s reason to celebrate! But if you’re hosting the baby shower, there’s so much more to think about than the cute baby outfits you want to buy.
Menu planning can be one of the most challenging aspects of planning a baby shower. You need to be able to feed a crowd, but you probably also want the food to be cute, delicious, and not excessively complicated. These recipes fit the bill, and they don’t take hours of labor!
Punch can help take your party to the next level. We like this pretty pink punch because it’s so easy to make. And since the pink color is a result of using raspberry sherbet, you can adjust the color by selecting a different sherbet flavor.
Bite-sized appetizers seem so fitting for a baby shower. Guests can grab a bite as they mingle. This recipe makes the cute because the folding of these puffs reminds us of a baby blanket, so it seems thematically appropriate. Plus, they’re vegan, so plant-based guests can enjoy them, too!
What better way to celebrate a cute new little person than with cute little foods? We love this recipe because it is such an adorable twist on simple, classic food.
We love this recipe because it is convenient and satisfying. Since you make all the sandwiches at once, you won’t have to spend so much time putting together each sandwich individually. Plus, they’re small enough that they could act as appetizers if you want, but they could also be a component of a full meal.
If you want more of a meal at the baby shower, this lasagna recipe looks beautiful and can feed a crowd. But the main reason we’ve included it on this list is that you can make it ahead of time and just heat it up the day of the party.
Looking to put your own personal touch on a dish? We love that this recipe allows you to do just that. While it gives you all the basic information you need to prepare a tasty entree, it is also adjustable based on dietary restrictions and preferences, so you can make it vegan, gluten-free, extra spicy…anything you can dream up!
We’ve included this recipe because we think these little butter cookies strike the perfect balance between cute and elegant. Not only that, but they are also freezable, so you can have them ready to go ahead of time. And they’d look so lovely on display in the center of the table that you might not need as much table decor!
If you’re looking for a cute and creative cake that’s not too hard to make, this recipe is for you! We like that this cake idea uses relatively simple decorating techniques but can look totally professional if you get it right.
