My bf who is hosting my shower just called and wanted to know what to do as far as food goes. The shower itself is at 1p.m on a Saturday.
So just wondering what you ladies have had or are having at your shower?
At 1 you should some sort of real meal. You could do anything. I've seen pulled pork, pasta, deli trays, bagels and spreads -- whatever fits into your host's budget. My shower is at a Mexican place so I think people are getting a choice of taco's and something else (maybe grilled fish?).
I had a total of 4 showers. My first 3 were for my oldest DD (over 25 years ago) and they were all just cake and coffee/punch. All of them were later evening (like 7 pm) except one was a Sunday afternoon (2-4) so it wasn't a meal time. My last shower was 5 years ago and my friend had salads (chicken, pasta, potato) and rolls. It was also evening (but 6-7).
My DDs' shower was from 2-5 on a Saturday afternoon and there was lasagna (regular and veggie), garlic bread, large lettuce salad, and a veggie tray. Normally at that time you don't need a "meal" but because she had so many people driving from out of state and out of town (anywhere from 1-5 hours) we felt it was necessary to FEED them before they left! lol
We are having 2 types of wings, meatballs, mac and potato salad, a lunch meat tray, veggie tray and fruit platter. We'll also have soda, the cake and white chocolate pretzels as favors.
The shower is in a hall from 2-6pm.
My shower is at 2:00 PM on a Sunday.
My mom and stepmom are hosting my shower. DH and I are both teachers, so they decided to do story book themed food.
meatballs & rolls (cloudy with a chance of meatballs)
assorted lunchmeat tray (sam's sandwich, soup and sandwish, or seal's silly sandwich)
potato salad (the enormous potato or math potatos)
shish kabob w/chunks of hard salami, chunks of cheese, green olives, and a cherry tomato "head" (the very hungry caterpillar)
deviled egss with green yolk and ham appetizers (green eggs and ham)
ginger snaps and pumpkin dip (the biggest pumpkin ever)
monkey bread (curious george)
carrot cake (the velveteen rabbit)
chocolate chip cookies (if you give a mouse a cookie)
mmitche0:My shower will be in hall at the church at 3pm. We're having fried chicken,baked mac&cheese,greens,Potato salad,fruit and veggie trays,Cheese and cracker trays,cup cakes and pink drinks for about 50ppl
Yum, that sounds soooo good.
