Finger Food Ideas for Your Baby Shower

Baby Shower Finger Food Ideas

Everyone loves finger foods, especially at a party. Guests don’t have to worry about cutting up meat or awkwardly trying to finagle that spaghetti into their mouth and hosts don’t have to deal with loads of silverware to wash at the end of the day. Keep your finger foods particularly fun at your upcoming baby shower by playing up the theme a little bit. These baby shower finger food ideas are sure to be a hit, so prepare for an onslaught of oohs, ahhs and yums.

Pink or Blue Rice Krispies Treats

Bake a batch or two of Rice Krispie treats and cut them into bit sized pieces. Next, melt down some white chocolate and, depending on the baby’s gender, add either a few drops of red or blue to create pale pink or baby blue chocolate. If  the gender has yet to be revealed, make both colors. Dip one end of the Rice Krispie treats into the chocolate and set on wax paper to cool.

Babes in a Blanket

These “babes in a blanket” are a baby shower approved spinoff of the original “pigs in a blanket.” You’ll need a meat link of your choice and a crescent roll. Instead of wrapping the meat completely inside of the dough, cut 1/4 of the top corner off of your roll and separate it from the rest. Wrap the bottom part of the roll around the bottom portion of the link to create a blanket. Wrap the remaining top corner around the top of the meat, leaving a section of the meat showing. The top corner portion looks like a hat, the bottom portion looks like a blanket and the meat looks like the face of your baby. Once cooked, use your choice condiment to create two eyes and a mouth.

Salad Wraps

To appease guests who are watching their figures, include some low calorie options on your baby shower menu. In addition to the standard sliced veggies and dip, opt for a delicious, savory and healthy salad wrap. Simply take a large piece of romaine lettuce and fill it with a tuna salad, chicken salad or similar. Wrap it up like you’d wrap a burrito and arrange them on a plate.

Berry Shortcake Bites

These non-alcoholic “shots” make for a light dessert everyone will love. To begin, select berries of your choice. Blueberries are a fitting choice if the baby is a boy while raspberries or strawberries work for girls. In a small, shot-glass sized cup, layer your berries, some light shortcake or angel food cake and top with whipped cream. Guests don’t need silverware for these berry shortcake bites since they can just pop them into their mouth.

Baby Carriage Watermelon

Impress your guests with a carved out watermelon, which looks far more complicated than it actually is. TasteOfHome.com says to cut a bottom portion of the watermelon so it can rest flat. Use round orange or fruit slices and a toothpick to create four wheels. Next, cut out the shape of a baby carriage from your watermelon and scoop out the insides. Fill with bite-sized pieces of fruit, such as grapes, melon balls and berries. Have toothpicks nearby so guests can pick out their fruit.
