Well, I don't know about there, but it's hot here in Texas. So I'd suggest finger foods, chips and dips, mini sandwiches, veggie tray. Here's an idea. How about making a baby carriage watermelon? Design and cut the watermelon to look like a baby carriage and use something on the side, at the bottom for wheels (maybe large slices of eggplant?).

Ad

Cut out the watermelon inside and then make watermelon balls (and maybe honeydew, cantaloupe as well) and add back to the inside with some nice fresh mint. Colored punch to match the babies sex is nice also, if you know the sex, which people generally do now. Just add food color.

When I had my daughters Baby shower in the summer I had a salad buffet, with assorted salads, chicken, ham , pasta and some vegie types too. Then dessert was an ice cream bar. The idea went over well and the prep was very easy as most everything was done ahead of time and the ice cream bar was almost a "do nothing "

Chicken Salad is always a hit. I will share my 2 favorite recipes. These are good served with ritz or club style crackers (I buy the generic type). Fresh Fruit so many are in season now and a fruit dip. Vegetables and Dips.

Ad

Honey Dijon Chicken Salad:
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, poached and chopped fine or 1 whole chicken poached, skinned and deboned. (I run this through the food processor for a fine chop)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (food processor)
1/2 cup finely chopped celery (food processor)
1/2 cup finely chopped pecan (food processor)
1 cup mayonnaise (I use Fat free)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate several hours or overnight to allow the flavors to blend.

Buffalo Chicken Salad
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, poached and chopped fine or 1 whole chicken poached, skinned and deboned. (I run this through the food processor for a fine chop)
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion (food processor)
1/2 cup finely chopped celery (food processor)
3/4 cup mayonnaise (I use Fat free)
1/4 cup Ranch Dressing (I use Fat free)

Ad


2 tablespoons Hot Sauce (more or less to taste)
1/4 - 1/2 C. Blue Cheese (I use Reduced Fat)

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate several hours or overnight to allow the flavors to blend.

Creamy Fruit Dip
1 32oz Tub Fat Free Plain Yogurt
1 box Sugar Free White Chocolate Pudding mix

Mix together and refrigerate. This is great will all types of fruits (Pineapple, apples, pears, grapes, strawberries, melon, etc.)

I hope this helps!

If it's at 1 pm, lunch is over. I'm guessing you'll be having cake/punch - so you won't need a lot of heavy foods. Plan to serve finger food, like veggies/dip, chips/dips, tortilla roll-ups (my recipe below), cheese/crackers, meat cubes (like ham, turkey)/with crackers. This is an afternoon shower. If you want to serve lunch, the chicken salad recipes on small rolls is a good choice. Or, you can serve meat/cheese on small rolls, with a pasta/potato salad and chips.

Ad

There's so many foods you can choose - it depends on the mom-to-be's favorites.

My tortilla roll-ups are quick/easy. Get 1 pk/12 flour tortillas, an 8 oz pkg of cream cheese, and 1 jar of medium salsa. Soften the cream cheese, add about 1/2 cup of salsa - more if needed - and mix well. Spread over a tortilla, within 1/2" of the edge. Roll up tightly; cut into 1" slices. Refrigerate until served.

Most important is to have fun!

Well I am planning for my baby shower and I want it to be economical yet a grand one. I had a word with my husband but since we are first time parents we couldn't come up with much of effective ideas. A friend of mine suggested a blog from http://www.napp  er-menu-planning

It cleared off a lot of tiffs I had earlier.

Many years ago, I attended a baby shower with my mother and the nut cups were little baby diapers made out of a sugar confection! Does anyone else remember those and how they are made? Thanks!

I remember pink and blue flannel, cut in triangles and dipped in wax or paraffin. They were formed into diapers that sat up, like a baby was sitting in them. They were always pinned in front with a little gold pin.

Hi- I haven't seen the diapers you describe, but I wonder if they might be made from marzipan? It sounds very cute! Regards- Cheryl

AT my moms last shower the nutcups were made from 3 stacked marshmallows-2 on bottom with one on top and then decorative royal icing was used to make them look like booties.
