In Catering Tips, Catering Trends

Planning a baby shower is no easy task; there are so many different aspects you need to take care of, from the venue and the decorations to the food and the beverages.

There’s usually so much to do to make sure that nothing is out of place and the shower is carried out to perfection.

What’s bound to take the most time to get sorted, however, is possibly the food. Hiring a professional catering company that can offer the services you require can help you take care of the food since there is a chance that you might have to invite a large number of people.

There are many ways in which you can serve up food, but organizing a buffet is the best way to go. Not only is it easy and more cost-effective, especially when serving a larger number of people, but it’s also a great way to offer guests a variety, leaving them spoilt for choice.

However, if you’re not too sure about the exact buffet options to offer at a shower, this blog post will help you decide on some crowd-pleasing baby shower food buffet ideas.

Baby Shower Bruncheon

Bruncheons, or brunches, are a popular choice for baby showers as of late. Brunch is the ideal time of day to host a baby shower; it’s neither too early nor too late and allows you to combine the best of both worlds—breakfast and lunch—to serve an array of goodies.

You can include items such as mini quiches, chicken salad, candied bacon, fruit platters, and even assorted bread with various toppings along with a selection of beverages, ranging from juices to coffee and tea. Make sure there’s something for everyone with a good brunch catering menu.

Baby Shower Appetizers

A beautiful assortment of mini appetizers or finger foods would be the perfect choice for a baby shower. Appetizers automatically provide you with much-needed variety for your food table. Always make sure to check with the mom-to-be about their food preferences, as there are food restrictions for pregnant mothers, and the guests’ food restrictions as well.

Offering a charcuterie board as one of the food options in the buffet would be a great way to keep up with trends as well. You could also offer options such as tea sandwiches or meatballs—bonus points if they’re on a toothpick for easy consumption! If you want to add a bit of luxury to the table, mini crab cakes and shrimp cocktails would be lovely.

Baby Shower Sweet Treats

Desserts are the definite centerpiece at any baby shower buffet table. Dessert ideas for a baby shower are endless; catering services now have separate dessert menus that contain absolutely delicious sugar concoctions.

Traditionally, a cake would have been enough, but you can always get creative with a baby shower dessert table—maybe by hosting a dessert bar for example. The most popular (for all the right reasons) items on any dessert menu are cake pops, caramel popcorn, and Hershey’s Kisses.

Baby Shower Beverages

How you decide to present your beverages depends on the theme of the baby shower. Go beyond your everyday sparkling water and wine, and get creative with a few fizzing, alcohol-free mocktails. If you’re going ahead with a brunch-themed baby shower, a mocktail mimosa bar is definitely a must-have.

If you opt for a brunch baby shower menu, you can opt for iced teas, iced coffees, or fresh juices. If you’re planning on hosting the baby shower in the evening, however, even a hot cocoa station would work well.
