Food Ideas for a Couple's Baby Shower

Choosing food for your couple's baby shower is the easiest and most important part of your party planning. One thing men love to do is eat!

You want to keep these men happy and content at your baby shower so make sure to choose hearty foods. You can still plan to serve lighter foods for the ladies but make sure to include plenty of meat for the guys. Also make sure to find out if any of your guests have any food sensitivities.

Here are a few baby shower food ideas that are sure to keep those men happy:

  • Appetizers & Finger Foods - Nacho dip & chips, spinach dip with crackers or crusty chunks of bread, chicken wings, finger sandwiches, deviled eggs, pigs in a blanket, Swedish meatballs.

  • Main Entrees - BBQ chicken, fried chicken, enchiladas, chili.
  • Side Dishes - potato salad, pasta salad, mac & cheese

It's best to keep your menu easy so that you will have time to mingle with the guests rather than be stuck in the kitchen. Find some more great baby shower food ideas and recipes here.

Just keep in mind when you are planning your coed baby shower to keep it neutral and guy-friendly and you wont' go wrong. The expecting daddy will appreciate that he was included in this very special event.
