There are three things you absolutely MUST HAVE to throw the ultimate baby shower: (1) Cute Decor, (2) Fun Games, and (3) DELICIOUS FOOD. I’ve already covered decor and games in previous blog posts, so you should know what’s coming up next. Mmhmm, you guessed it: BABY SHOWER FOOD.
Soooo, what kind of food do you serve at a baby shower? Well, it depends. I’ve seen it all, from finger foods to full-course meals, honey. Talk about fancy. Lol. I have to admit, I think finger foods are more common. But, regardless of what option you choose, I recommend having a variety of dishes so nobody is left out. I mean I know some people who go to baby showers JUST FOR THE FOOD! (cough, cough, my boyfriend 🙄)
But enough rambling, here are yummy baby shower food ideas to get your shower started off the RIGHT WAY.
Fruit trays are a great choice if you’re going for something light and healthy. Plus, they look beautiful!

A meat and cheese platter is a great way to please your guests. Have a variety of meats, cheeses, crackers and pickled vegetables for everyone to snack on throughout the day.
A sizzling plate of meatballs is one of my absolute favorites! There’s something so delightful about juicy balls of goodness that just cannot be beaten.
Sliders are the perfect mini-sandwiches for any party. You can either make them yourself or pick up a few from your local deli. Either way, they’re sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Go wild and create your own custom nacho bar with all the toppings your guests could ever want.
Finger Food Spread
From kebabs to tea sandwiches, the possibilities are endless!
A great way to make sure everyone’s appetite is satisfied is by having a variety of sandwiches. From BLT to Clubhouse, there’s something for everyone.
Honestly, wings were MADE for baby showers. What’s better than a plate of crispy, juicy wings to snack on while you celebrate?
