50 Best Baby Shower Party Foods

Hosting a baby shower and planning your baby shower party menu? You’re in the right place! Whether you’re hosting a shower for a boy or a girl or gender neutral, you’ll find the perfect baby shower party foods to feed mom-to-be and your party guests!

Best Baby Shower Party Food Ideas

Always be sure to ask the soon to be parents and baby shower guests of any dietary restrictions or food allergies. It’s always nice to be sure everyone at the party has options to enjoy.

Serve your baby shower foods on a dining table or kitchen island on a variety of tiered trays or platters. Down South, we love to use our grandma’s gigantic silver trays and you can find similar ones at just about any estate sale! Simple white platters or even large plates will do the trick too!

Another hostess tip? Print out simple food tent cards to label your foods so guests know what you’re serving! You can find super cute themed food label cards on Etsy too. This is always a welcomed addition to any party food table and it can help carry out your theme!

Baby Shower Party Appetizers

Appetizers are perfect for baby showers. Whenever I host baby showers, I like to offer 3 to 5 different party appetizers along with a couple of desserts and a signature cocktail. I find that’s the perfect amount for guests to enjoy while mixing and mingling with mom-to-be!

Here are a few of my go-to party appetizers for baby showers!
