Important Considerations Before Deciding The Food Menu
The baby shower party is hosted to rejoice with the expecting couple. The food menu must therefore take into consideration their preferences, particularly of the mother-to-be.

Spicy chicken wings are popular at baby shower parties. Serve chicken wings with a home-made yoghurt, mint and cilantro dip to add a touch of uniqueness to this popular party appetizer.
Mini pizzas and miniature sandwiches are favorites too. You can use innovative fillings for your sandwiches and cut them into cute portions. You can even decorate the sandwiches to resemble a human baby’s face. Use olives for the eyes, a small carrot piece for the nose and a long slice of red pepper to make smiling lips.
