A baby shower held during a normal meal time should offer breakfast, lunch or dinner food items, but a baby shower held in between meal times can serve snacks or finger foods. A sit-down meal isn't required, but baby showers held right at lunch or dinner time should offer meal items like salad, lasagna, bread or casseroles.
Finger foods are popular baby shower menu items, and can include fruit and vegetable platters, chips and dip, mini sandwiches and mini quiche. A casual baby shower can offer simple snacks like cheese and crackers along with a cake or cupcakes.
Evening baby showers work well as dessert showers. The host offers an assortment of sweet treats, including chocolates, cupcakes, cookies and candies. Drinks can include punch, sodas, water, coffee and tea.
