Baby Shower Food Table

We had an open house party for a friend of ours who is due to have her 5th baby "girl". We decided it was definitely a celebration since the baby was a surprise. We held it at night during the week. It was a very relaxed neighborhood get together. People came and went as their schedules would permit.

We had a table filled with yummy delights like a chocolate fountain, pound cake, Better Than Sex Cake, caramel popcorn, lots of strawberries and bananas to dip. We had chips and a yummy sausage dip and a yummy fruit dip for as another option for the guests. We also had the traditional vegetable dip. The food was great and we had a great turn out!

There was even a diaper bear and diaper cake that some guests brought as gifts.

Welcome Home Baby Shower Idea
by: Anonymous

I love the welcome home baby shower idea. This is a shower & celebration of the baby's birth. It's perfect for a coed/family get together, and everyone gets to meet the new baby. Invitations can include the birth announcement and picture of the baby. My husband and I are throwing one to celebrate our first grandchild. The guys are going to grill while the girls all gaga over the baby and baby gifts. Best of all, it eliminates those terrible shower games. The baby herself/himself is the theme!
