Baby Shower : Tackling the Menu and Indulging Mommy’s Cravings

  • Baby Shower Comfort Foods Mac and Cheese Swedish Meatballs

    Baby showers are about celebrating new beginnings, so, in my opinion, like real life, these events should be lighthearted and whimsical.  Keeping the theme of the event in mind, I like to indulge the mommy-to-be. More than likely, she’s craving something whether it’s Elvis French Toast or French Fries. I start by pulling out all of the crave-worthy foods, like Fried Chicken, Mac and Cheese, Spaghetti and Meatballs and other “lighter” crowd pleasers like BLTs, Shrimp Lollipops  and Caprese Sandwiches.

    For presentation, I like to stagger rubber duckies (my favorites are from BUD in Australia) between silver demitasse spoonfuls of Mac and Cheese.  Sometimes, I even add Spaghetti and Meatballs or Swedish Meatballs to the tray.  Dessert is a whole other story, but at the very least, color-coded cotton candy (pink for a girl, blue for a boy) is always a hit!
