27 Funny, Fabulous (And Wrong) Baby Shower Food Ideas

Is it a baby shower organizer’s job to impress the mother-to-be or horrify her? Perhaps a good healthy dose of both?

Regardless of your approach to the event itself (nutella poo nappy game anyone?), the very least you can do is treat it like any other special occasion and that means concentrating on the food.

Whether you’re after baby shower food that is practical and sensible, fun and funny or downright gross and gruesome, this long list right here will give you a starting point to dazzle guests.

Sweet Treats

When can you enjoy a treat if it’s not at a baby shower? It’s not only the perfect event for a high tea, but Mom-to-be will appreciate any excuse to indulge her sweet tooth.

Some of these treats are all about the flavor and some offer a special twist of baby-related fun.
