Hi all, I am a new mommy (3.19.14) and excited that my sister is expecting her first on labor day of this year I am happily planning her shower for July. I have started the planning early as my little one has her own schedule/needs so I can plan and do a little at a time. Just wanted anyone's input on menu/food ideas that were a hit if you planned a shower. My sister is not a huge meat eater (but not a vegetarian) and tends to lean on the healthier/cleaner side of food. This is what I've brainstormed so far. I will probably have the shower from 2-5 so was having more finger food/apps as opposed to a formal meal. Figured lighter stuff would fare better as to heavier as the summers get really hot here in Virginia!
Drinks-Slush Punch with optional vodka guests can add in if they wish
Pulled Pork Sliders in Crock Pot
Arugula and Watermelon Salad
Spinach and Artichoke Dip with Pita Chips
Blue Cheese and Pear Tartlets
Was thinking a chocolate fountain too?
This is what I've drummed up so far, let me know any ideas you may have
