Baby Shower Snack Ideas

Baby Shower Cupcakes

When plan­ning a baby show­er, there is a long list of things that have to be con­sid­ered. Beyond the invi­ta­tions, dec­o­ra­tions, cake, and games, a per­son would need to come up with snack ideas that would appeal to the major­i­ty of guests. Of course, not every­one in atten­dance is going to like the food served but with care­ful plan­ning, it is pos­si­ble to offer a lit­tle some­thing for every­one.

 We also want to point out that as part of choos­ing per­fect baby show­er snacks, an indi­vid­ual does not need to spend a for­tune. If the bud­get allows, foods could be catered in but if not, there are some great afford­able food ideas. Now, if the per­son orga­niz­ing the baby show­er sim­ply does not have the finan­cial means or even time to pre­pare every­thing, there would be noth­ing wrong in ask­ing sev­er­al of the fam­i­ly mem­bers and close friends of the expec­tant or new mom to pitch in.

Themed Food Baby Shower Snack Ideas

For this, snack foods would coor­di­nate with the baby show­er or have a theme of their own. As an exam­ple, the host could choose all fin­ger foods such as tor­tilla roll-ups, mini-sand­wich­es, toast­ed bagel bites, petit fours, tiny pecan tarts, and so on. The theme might also involve choos­ing foods of a spe­cif­ic col­or to match the show­er. If an expec­tant moth­er were hav­ing a boy, options could con­sist of minia­ture blue­ber­ry muffins, blue tor­tilla chips and sal­sa, or per­haps fresh boy­sen­ber­ries, blue­ber­ries and even black­ber­ries in a blue col­ored yogurt or pud­ding.

Healthy Baby Shower Snack Ideas

Today, many preg­nant women are putting a lot of empha­sis on stay­ing healthy so in sup­port of this, per­fect snack ideas could con­sist of healthy foods. Fresh water­mel­on could be cut out in the shape of baby bug­gies and green grapes used as the wheels or per­haps radish and toma­to rosettes served with a low-fat dip. There are thou­sands upon thou­sands of healthy food ideas that would be per­fect for a baby show­er event.

Unique Baby Shower Snack Ideas — Nursery Rhymes

For some­thing extra spe­cial, foods could be pre­pared to match dif­fer­ent nurs­ery rhymes. This could be foods that would have been eat­en by char­ac­ters or foods with cre­ative nurs­ery rhyme names. Fol­low­ing are some exam­ples of how this could be accom­plished.
