Fun and Easy Baby Shower Lunch Menu Ideas That Will Take The Stress Out Of Your Party!
Organizing a Baby Shower and need some Delicious and Easy baby shower lunch menu ideas? Wondering what to serve?
Whether you are organizing a baby shower on a budget or you have an unlimited budget there are plenty of great ideas so I am sure you will find some that suit you.
If you are having a sit-down baby shower then you will need to serve full on plated meals and this might be best for a catering company or you might have very talented family and friends who want to do this for you.
That is a choice you need to make or if you want something a little less stressful then the trend at the moment seems to be more about having finger foods at a baby shower so I have made this post more about that then a sit down lunch.
The great thing about finger food is it can be made in advance, is a cheaper option and that is always great if you are doing a Baby Shower on a budget.
Finger foods I feel are a little more conversational as you usually stand around in groups and chat and you can move around to other guests as you please, whereas when you are seated like at a dinner party you are sat next to the same person and if you have a big group you will not be able to chat with the person down the other end of the table.
Appetizers or finger foods can be made well in advance so less stress on the day and then just heat if need be and serve, so the pressure is off.
I also notice that many friends will take platters around as they like to meet and mingle with guests or you could just have a grazing table that people can just go to when they are hungry or thirsty.
