Shower Food Ideas???

Recommended Posts

Help! My friends are throwing me a shower and they want me to pick out the food. I have no idea what I want, but I know I want a lot of food! Could you please post your favorite foods that you had at your shower/someone else's shower? Thanks so much! Desireehuh02.gif

Since you are getting married in Mexico, maybe you could have tacos (along with some other snacky things, of course). One of my friends did that, just make a big crock pot full of the taco meat, then all the fixins on the side for everyone to make their own. Another friend had tacos-in-a-bag, which I thought was kinda wierd. Instead of having the taco shells, she had those little snack bags of Dorito's and the guests were supposed to crunch up the chips in the bag, then add the fixins, then shake it all together and either eat w/ a fork or pour onto a plate. Like I said, that was kind of strange, but whatever works, right?

 

My personal favorite is taco dip or fresh salsa, especially if you wanted to keep it Mexico themed. Then you can make mini-margaritas too!

 

Other things I've seen at showers are rigatoni, meatballs, chicken wings, veggie tray, meat & cheese tray, pinwheels....and, of course, cake.

 

Now I'm hungry!

I love homemade meatballs simmered in a chili & grape jelly sauce - just mix equal parts of chili sauce & grape jelly. Sounds odd I know, but trust me...it is SOOOOO good!!!

And you can't go wrong with a spinach dip & bread bowl!

Or maybe you want to go with a Mexican theme...do all things Mexican!

Good luck & have fun!!!

My friend rolled out bread dough and filled it with ham and cheese, and turkey and cheese...so good! You can pretty much fill it with whatever you want, roll it up and seal the ends, brush it with egg whites, and bake it. Really tastey!

 

Another cute idea my friend's husband made for her birthday party... He bought the scoops tortilla chips, made a shredded chicken and veggie mixture, and filled each scoop with it, and topped it with cheese. He baked them to melt the cheese and it was an individual loaded tortilla chip! So good!

My sister threw me a shower last weekend, here's a quick list of what was there:

 

- Spinach dip & bread

- Bruschetta

- Ceasar salad and a spinach salad with strawberries and goat cheese

- I don't know what these are called but it's some sort of pastry pocket she makes that has cheese, red peppers and brocolli in it, it's very good

- Black forest cupcakes (black forest cake is my favorite, that's why she did this) and raspberry cupcakes
