Fun and Affordable Baby Shower Menu Ideas

Below are some quick and easy baby shower snack ideas that will totally impress guests and spice up your baby shower menu:

Chocolate Dipped Pretzels:

Dip pretzels (any shape or type you choose: rods, twists, sticks, etc) in white chocolate (CandiQuik is the easiest to use)

Sprinkle with colored sugar or themed sprinkles, lay out to dry on waxed paper. They are delicious and really make a cute presentation!

You can also color the white chocolate with a little food coloring to match the theme of the baby shower!

Chocolate Dipped Oreos:

Easy and popular baby shower food idea: Dip Oreos in melted chocolate and follow the instructions for pretzels!

You can also insert lollipop sticks or skewers into the Oreos (side up to the creme filling) and serve on the sticks.

Stick the sticks into a block of floral foam covered in cute paper!

Baby Shower Sugar Cookies:

Make sugar cookies that match the theme of the baby shower.

Frost and bundle up in a cute bag and give as a simple and affordable baby shower favor that everyone will love!

Baby Shower Sandwiches:

Another quick and easy baby shower menu idea is to cut sandwiches into baby-themed shapes with cookie cutters.

We once hosted a “Moon & Stars” baby shower and cut the sandwiches into moon shapes – we cut little stars out of colorful scrapbook paper, attached them to toothpicks and poked them in sandwiches.

It was so simple to make and made such a great presentation!

Easy Baby Shower Appetizers and Finger Foods:

Toss grape tomatoes and mini mozzarella balls or slices in olive oil and balsamic vinegar and then place them on a skewer adding basil leaves.

Start with cheese, then basil, then tomato – and repeat.

Drizzle with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. These are so easy to make!

The guests love them and they all gobble them up!

Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts:

They are so delicious! Even those who aren’t fans of water chestnuts will love them!

Start by frying some bacon (until about half way) and coat the water chestnuts lightly coated with BBQ sauce.

Secure with a toothpick and then place in a 350 degree oven until the bacon is fully cooked.

You can soak the toothpicks in water beforehand to prevent them from burning while in the oven.

These are just a few quick baby shower menu ideas to add a whole new level of cuteness to your event!
