Baby Shower Menu
My Sister-in-law is due early next month, she and my brother did not find out what they are having...any who. My Mom and I are throwing her a shower in a few weeks. She has celiac disease so the menu for her is always challenging ..
I have however come up with the following....
cheese and crackers
Apple butter meatballs
Spinach Dip , and tortilla chips
Mini fritatas - we are going to mix it up a bit , some veggie and meat
Chicken Salad, with pecans , apples , and maybe grapes . I got my inspiration from Arby's. but I was thinking about doing a wrap.
I wanted to do a baked potato soup , but I don't think its shower food. Even though we will be in Rhode Island , and it will be cold.
For dessert we'll do...
mini cheesecakes ( no crusts)
macarons ( green and yellow)
sugar cookie pizza ( gluten free cookie) it'll have a cream cheese sauce , and a fruit topping
and maybe a cake , depending on if I can master the gluten free cake. Or we could do a or semifreddo
I haven't figured out the centerpiece yet. I will NOT do a diaper cake . For some reason they just do not float my boat. Anyone with some ideas please share. One idea that I did see that I liked was to take some string for a clothesline and hang it accross the room , and hang baby clothes from it.
Either these or these will be the favors. I am very excited . I threw them an engagement party and that was awesome , so hopefully this will be just as great!! I can't wait till my little niece or nephew comes into the world!!!
