Couples Babyshower Ideas
I'm cooking for a couples babyshower for 30 in the evening. What are some suggestions and recipes you have?
Is this going to be after dinner, or is it going to be dinner? Also are there going to be other children present? I would probably serve a bunch of different appetizers that could pass for dinner snacks, staying away from the typical baby shower type things like sandwiches and cookies. Also, is the crowd a bunch of chow type people or not?
A heavy app that appeals to both sexes is this sausage-stuffed mushroom recipe:
Easy to make ahead, and they hold well in a warm oven for forever. Very forgiving, and hugely popular (at least in the circles I swim in!) And it's not too much more work to make a ton of them than to make just a few.
This Sparkling Citrusade just came to mind:
Haven't made it yet, but as a mom-to-be I think it sounds festive and refreshing. Drink recipes are a dime a dozen, but it may be worth trying.
I once catered shower where the hostess wanted me to use various baby foods as Tapas for the appetizers. East for me - toast slices of baguette, and spoon on toppings. The guests had a ball!
