On Saturday I was honored to host my sister’s baby shower at our house. Being the hostess gives me great motivation to get my home in order. (Why I can’t seem to tackle my housekeeping without external motivation is beyond me. I certainly can’t blame my mother for that one!) Plus, I like making food for people.
My co-hostesses and I chose a brunch theme for the 10:00 shower. Not much of a cake and punch person, I prefer a more elegant, hors d’oeuvres spread. Brunch works well for finger food (which is so much easier to eat when tables are not available), and the 10:00 time made it possible to also host a birthday/Mother’s Day cookout in the afternoon. All the family was together; may as well make it a day!
Here’s what we served. We’ll call it the Top 10 Baby Shower Brunch Ideas. Look for the recipes in future posts.
- crescent sausage wraps
- savory mini quiche
- fruit tray with marshmallow cream cheese dip
- poppy seed bread
- blueberry oat bread
- sour cream banana bread
- BLT bites
- lemon bars
- strawberry cream cheese brownie cups
- peach tea sangria
Am I all alone in my avoidance of the traditional cake and punch? What do you prefer to serve (or eat!) for bridal or baby showers?
