Google the words “baby shower” and more often than not…
Is it a baby shower organiser’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.
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 Mum-to-be will appreciate any excuse to indulge her sweet tooth.
Some of these treats are all about the flavour and some offer a special twist of baby-related fun.

When organising baby shower food, particularly if it’s a morning or afternoon affair, it’s often tempting to go hard on the sweets. It’s important you don’t forget the savoury toothed people at the party (not to mention Mum-to-be’s random cravings).
Those avocado puff pastries and hot ham and cheese biscuits will be gone in an instant while everyone will be eager for a second cup of dip. Yummo!

Don’t say we didn’t warn you! A baby shower’s not a baby shower without a hint of the gruesome.
What’s hilarious about these treats and cakes, below, is that while they look super gross they’re actually mild and tame compared to the real experience! Give me chocolate poop on a stick above a smelly nappy any day!
