What Do You Cater for a Baby Shower?

With most events, guests expect to eat good food; therefore, catering for baby showers is essential. Thankfully, we are here to handle this difficult task for your dinner party. Our team at our quality catering services offers a wide selection of offerings for catering that can fit everyone’s unique wants and needs. Typically, you can expect to see a wide range of foods at a baby shower, from delicious finger foods to healthy vegetable and fruit options.

Of course, the wants and needs of your guests play a role in what you choose to cater to. Luckily, delicious options for everyone’s different tastes. Finger foods such as ham, turkey, or chicken sandwiches are likely to be enjoyed by your guest; these sandwiches come in many more flavor and meat combinations.

Fruits and vegetables are another great option for catering as they are delicious and healthy. Grapes, apples, and other fresh fruits can give your baby shower a more lively and organic feel and surround your future blessing with good habits before they’re even born.

For those with a sweet tooth, brownies, cupcakes, and candies make great choices and can help fill any cravings that arise at your baby shower. For more formal baby showers, options such as cheese plates, fruit salads, meatball sliders, and deviled eggs all make great choices for guests. A significant but underappreciated part of your celebration can often be the drinks; guests must stay hydrated, and catering options such as tropical punch, cold water, and sweet tea can enhance the experience of your baby shower.

Our Catering Company know that Each Family Event Is Different

Not all baby showers are alike. Many times, the guests would rather have passable hors d’oeuvres trays, a light breakfast, or even a brunch service. Corky’s baby shower catering will work with you to create the event of your dreams. We can provide food of all kinds, from a Mexican fiesta to dessert from the finest bakeries in Chicago. We can come to your home and provide full service, deliver to a home or venue, put together everything that you need for pick-up or take care of every little detail. We will guide you through the important choices of picking a venue and making the right decisions to put on a party that suits you and your budget. The choice is yours and we want to make it happen.

What Kind of Appetizers Do I need at a Baby Shower?

Those looking to separate their catering into sections to provide their guest with appetizers and entrées have an abundance of selections to choose from.
Finger foods make great appetizers; sandwich wraps, mini sandwiches, fruit slices, deviled eggs, and kebabs are colorful and tasty choices that can keep your guest happy. It’s easy to go overboard and cater more food than needed.

Between four to eight appetizers per person are perfect, based on the number of guests and how long they will receive their appetizers before the main meal. Baby showers can go very well only using appetizers, but if guests are looking for a bigger meal to wrap up the celebration, salads and pasta are a sendoff meal and can be given to guests before they depart. Most guests only need appetizers alone; therefore, entrees are rare for baby showers.

How Much Food Do You Need at a Baby Shower?

The number of guests determines how much food one should cater for their baby shower. Most guests want to take food with them following a baby shower making planning more difficult. Always be sure to get slightly more food than you’d need to ensure that guests are satisfied.
