Planning a baby shower is so much fun. You get to plan silly baby games, invite all your best girlfriends, shop for adorable baby gifts and plan a fun baby shower buffet that is delicious and befitting a pregnant woman.
Before you dive into the decorations and the baby shower activities, talk to your caterer about the types of food you want at the shower. Since it’s a baby shower, a buffet is the best option, leaving you room and time to enjoy the party, sit with your friends, while our staff sets up a beautiful, scrumptious display filled with food that goes with your theme and adheres to the dietary restrictions of the mom-to-be.
Foods to avoid at your baby shower
Obviously, leave the tartar and the raw egg yolk for after the baby is born. Raw meats are always a risk, even for non-pregnant people, but the risk for a pregnant woman in case of bacteria are a lot worse.
Although we make awesome, delicious, and authentic sushi, this is probably not the best option for your shower - unless it’s our vegetarian California rolls that don’t include raw fish.
Soft cheeses are also a no-no for expecting mothers, but that doesn’t mean you can’t include a cheese plate on the buffet menu.
Before you decide on the menu, check with the mother to see what she is and isn’t eating, because every mom is different.
Incorporate a baby theme
Of course, because it’s a baby shower, you’re allowed to get cute and stick to a “baby theme.”
There are baby carrots, baby back ribs, and of course, everything can be made in baby sizes.
Instead of burgers, ask for our juicy, delicious mini-sliders - or baby burgers.
Desserts take center stage
Desserts need to play a central role in your buffet. Baby showers are typically in the afternoon, so tea and desserts are expected. Baby cupcakes, baby brownies, baby chocolate chip cookies. You name it; we can make it, and make it baby-sized and cute, including matching the color of all frosting to the sex of the baby. We know real men can wear pink these days, but when it comes to a baby shower, there's nothing wrong with a little old-school tradition.
