The perfect time to host a brunch shower is around 11am. The great thing about this is that you can serve both sweet and savory foods!

First, start your baby shower brunch with some fancy drinks!

• Coffee – Be sure to have some java brewin’! Guests love to sip on it while eating dessert. Don’t forget the cream and sugar!

• Mimosas – No baby shower brunch menu is complete without delicious drinks! They can be made with or without champagne. For the real thing, pour two parts champagne to 1 part OJ. Mock version for the mom-to-be: substitute sparkling water, Sprite or 7-Up for champagne.

For a beautiful presentation and some added pizazz, add a splash of pomegranate or cherry juice. Serve in a champagne flute and garnish with baby-themed glass charms.
