Baby showers are a time of excitement and celebration—and they can feature any number of games, themes, and decorations. But the one thing that all baby showers have to have in common is that they need to have the most amazing food. That’s because food is one of the biggest ways people celebrate, no matter what culture they come from. Especially here in south Florida, food is a large part of our culture.
Plus, the mommy-to-be is eating for two (or maybe even three!), so she’s going to have quite the appetite. If that’s not enough incentive on its own to convince you to get amazing food, then we don’t know what is.
Not sure where to begin when it comes to your baby shower good choices? Here are a few ideas to make your baby shower an unforgettable celebration:
We’re not going to sit here and pretend like carving a watermelon is the easiest thing in the world, but what we like about this idea is that it is eye-catching, creative, cute, and festive. And best of all, this carriage isn’t quite as difficult as many other watermelon carvings that we’ve seen. Grab a sneak peak of the idea here.
There’s nothing we love more than a cute pun—especially at a baby shower. And this cute idea is the missing link to any baby shower, in our opinion. All you need are small plastic bags of caramel corn, kettle corn, or original popcorn. Tie the bag of and attach a sign that reads, “ready to pop!” Your guests will be so impressed with the creativity, you’re bound to get a chuckle out of them. And since it’s such a portable snack size, popcorn makes for an awesome party favor. Check out the idea here.
Everyone loves a good mimosa. And who can resist a mom-osa at a baby shower? Offer your guests a wide selection of fruit juices—like orange, grapefruit, cranberry, pineapple, lime, and others. Then, offer champagne and other sparkling options for the soon-to-be mommy, like sparkling water or cider. Top off the fitting libation with a little fresh fruit, and you and your guests will be in beverage heaven. Yum! Learn more about this idea here.
It might be a stereotype that women crave pickles and ice cream while they’re pregnant, but this is the perfect joke to incorporate into your baby shower! Create an entire ice cream bar with a wide selection of high quality, fresh ice cream and sweet toppings. Don’t forget to have a couple pickles on the side of the ice cream sundae bar as a cute and humorous addition. Hey, you might be surprised. Mom-to-be might actually even go for the sweet and sour combo.
If you’re planning a sundae bar for your baby shower or any event, make sure you go with the best in the industry. At Cold Stone, we make our ice cream fresh daily, from top quality ingredients. Ready to get your catering order set up? Contact us today!
