What you serve at a baby shower depends on the time of day you will be
hosting it, and how much effort you want to put into it. You can choose to
serve only appetizers, brunch or even a light lunch or supper.
Here are some menu suggestions, (and recipes) to help you get started.
This can either be fruit you prepare, or some you buy already
cut up from your grocery. You can even use frozen fruit mixtures if you
choose. You can serve this either in a nice bowl, or if you are preparing
the fruit, hollow out a melon (such as watermelon, honeydew or cantalope)
and use that to hold the diced fruit. Another serving idea would be to
place the fruit onto wooden skewers. This method is especially handy if you
are also serving a dip for your fruit. You could
also slice apples and serve them with a yummy dip just for apples.
Again, you can prepare this yourself, or buy one ready made.
You can use ranch dressing for dip, or you can make a dip or two on your own.
Other things you can serve with minimum preparation include: chips and dip,
prepackaged cookies, cake (or cupcakes) and crackers with cheese.
