📝 Frequently asked questions, answers and tips:

What time should a brunch baby shower start?

So you’re throwing a brunch themed baby shower and need to pick a start time that’s not too early but not too late. You could start as early at 9am but it would be best to start sometime between 10:30 and 12:30. Similarly you could start the party as late as 1pm for an afternoon baby shower but anything later than that wouldn’t be appropriate for brunch. 

Hosting a baby shower brunch can be fun and challenging at the same time. Regardless if your theme is classic, traditional, elegant, whimsical, or anything in between, the menu recipes on this list will fit the bill. These ideas are simple, delicious, and pretty to look at!

21 Baby Shower Food Ideas {Brunch and Lunch!}


When you’re planning a baby shower, the most important thing aside from Mommy, the new baby, and the baby shower theme is the food. To keep the guests happy, the food needs to be fantastic. 

So, if yours is an afternoon baby shower (or a lunch hour shower at work), brunch or lunch foods are ideal. Plus, the foods are so much more fun than the typical baby shower fare.

From delicious breakfast items like mini pancakes, scones, and muffins, to easy appetizers like mini quiches, cucumber sandwiches and cheese boards, you’re going to love these easy baby shower food ideas.

Throw the best party ever to welcome a baby with these ideas for brunch and lunch. 




Baby Shower Finger Foods

If you plan on serving a baby shower lunch, you’ll love these appetizers, finger foods, and other main course ideas in the savory recipes category.

1) Mini Quiches

Quiche is a classic brunch item, but when it comes to a baby shower menu, mini quiches are even better. You don’t have to fuss with cutting them because they’re individually-sized.

Make these mini quiches from Dinner at the Zoo ahead of time; they can be served warm, cold, or at room temperature, making them perfect for any gathering.

The ingredients can be adjusted to make several different variations, like Mexican quiche, ham and cheese, or sausage and peppers.


2) Ham and Rosemary Scones

Who says scones have to be sweet? Savory scones are just as delicious. It’s the best thing ever when it’s served warm, just from the oven, but you can easily reheat them if you make them ahead of time.

The ham and rosemary scones by Recipes from a Pantry are flavorful, savory, and full of flavor from the Parma ham, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, and fresh chopped rosemary. 


3) Cucumber Sandwiches

Do you want a food idea that’s elegant enough to serve at any brunch or tea but is crazy simple to make?

Your go-to should be these cucumber sandwiches from Christina’s Cucina. They’re seriously so easy and are a popular choice for showers and tea parties!

PRO TIP: Make sure to cut the crusts off the bread and slice them diagonally or in half to make elegant little sandwiches.

As the post says, don’t reserve these for special occasions. They’re tasty enough — and easy enough — to make anytime. Add variety by using flavored or herbed cream cheeses.


4) Cheese Board

A cheese board is a tasty appetizer and a great way to show off your impressive culinary skills (even if you can’t actually cook). Here’s how you can make one:

  • Start by choosing a variety of cheeses. You can go for soft cheeses, hard cheeses, blue cheese, or any other kind you like.
  • Next, add some cured meats and charcuterie. This will add some flavor and texture to your board.
  • Finally, add some complementary items like fresh fruit, nuts, and breads. This will give your board a nice variety of flavors and textures.

If you’re stumped or want an exact recipe to follow, this cheese board from Dinner at the Zoo is incredible.

Cheese bites are easy baby shower appetizers that are great for any gathering. You just can’t go wrong with fried cheese, folks.

They’re super easy to make using string cheese, and you don’t even need a deep fryer for this recipe from Dancing Through the Rain. A skillet works just fine.


6) Jalapeno Popper Wonton Cups

The great thing about this recipe is that it works with beef, chicken, turkey, or even veggie meatballs. They’re all delicious in this sauce from Persnickety Plates.


8) Veggie Pinwheels

Veggie pinwheels are a popular baby shower food idea that I’ve seen many times. They’re tasty, easy, and require no cooking at all. That’s a win in any hostess’s book!

You can use any combination of veggies you have on hand. This recipe calls for broccoli, carrots, and cheddar cheese, but I’ve also seen them with bell peppers and spinach as well.

It’s always nice to have a vegetarian option or two for those who don’t eat meat or have certain dietary restrictions.


9) Southwest Egg Rolls

Spicy chicken and melty cheese fill these crispy Southwest egg rolls from Baking Beauty. Serve with avocado ranch, queso blanco, or your favorite dips that pair well with Mexican foods. 



Sweet Treats for a Baby Shower Brunch

Feed that sweet tooth with these delicious treats that include both breakfast foods and desserts. 

10) Mini Pancakes

There’s  a recent TikTok trend making pancake cereal, but the truth is, mini pancakes have been around for quite a while. Moms have made them for picky toddlers for ages!

But nevertheless, mini pancakes (or pancake cereal) is a great option for a baby shower brunch.  

They can be served on kabobs with fruit, dusted with powdered sugar, or served with syrup or jam. 


11) Blueberry Breakfast Bread

Is there anything better than a thick slice of blueberry bread with a cup of coffee? It’s all the flavor of blueberry muffins but in a sliceable bread form.

Of course, you can just do muffins, if you prefer, but this bread from Mommy Musings is perfect for adding a pat of butter or a drizzle of syrup to.



12) French Toast

This raspberry peach baked French toast is a great choice and can be prepared the night before so that all you have to do before the baby shower is pop it in the oven to bake.

The recipe from Powered by Mom is full of crusty French bread and delicious fruit. It’s perfect for summertime when peaches are at their most delicious.


13) Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

How about some moist banana muffins full of chocolate chips to add to the food table?

These gorgeous golden brown muffins from Spicy Southern Kitchen are not only totally YUM, but they’re quick, easy, and can be made ahead of time.



14) Lemon Blueberry Hand Pies

Lemon blueberry hand pies are a delightful, quick dessert that is perfect for spring and summer.

These hand pies have a puff pastry crust and an easy-to-make filling made from blueberries, fresh lemon juice, and sugar. These yummy treats can be found at Amanda’s Cookin’.

For an easy, healthy, and always delicious option, try these fresh fruit kabobs with cream cheese dip from Marathons & Motivation. 

Combine your favorite fruits (like strawberries and blueberries) with cubes of cheese and a delightful dip that brings out the sweetness of the fruit even further.

If you prefer not to do kabobs, this chocolate cream cheese dip will also be great on a fruit platter.


16) Strawberry Scones

There’s nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked scones, especially when they’re made with strawberries! They’re crumbly, sweet, bursting with strawberry flavor, and pair perfectly with a cup of coffee.

Try this recipe from Little Sunny Kitchen for the flakiest scones and sweet vanilla glaze. It’s the perfect food for a lovely brunch with the expectant mom.

You’re going to dress up those store-bought cinnamon rolls with extra brown sugar and cinnamon, and of course, you get bonus points if you make extra homemade glaze to pour over the top.



Baby Shower Brunch Drink Ideas

19) Party Punch

This colorful party punch by The Typical Mom is made with Sprite, orange juice, and rainbow sorbet.

tips, recommendations and examples of dishes


  • What should not be on the festive table
  • Beautiful and tasty snacks

Every mother wants a special day of the year - the birthday of her child, to be bright, special and memorable . At 2 years old, the child does not have any special wishes about what the holiday should be, so the mother herself must carefully think through and organize everything so that it is interesting to everyone who is invited, especially children. nine0003

A child's birthday should be bright, colorful and interesting

Most parents prefer to spend the holiday at home, it's more convenient. Contests, clown, animation - all this can be ordered at home, but the menu is a little more complicated. It is necessary to prepare such dishes that would be tasty, healthy and served on the table in a special way in order to attract the attention of children, and they wanted to try them.

What dishes to choose, what to serve first at the table and how to serve everything, all these questions are asked by all mothers who are preparing a birthday for their 2 year old baby. nine0003

What should not be on the holiday table

There are small food restrictions that every mother must adhere to if she wants to organize a holiday for a 2 year old child and his friends. At this age, not all foods and dishes can be eaten, so the main thing when making a birthday menu:

  • no salty, spicy and fatty dishes;
  • dishes with pepper, mayonnaise sauce and garlic are not welcome on the table;
  • smoked meats are also better to remove; nine0058
  • do not experiment by mixing many different foods in one dish;
  • remove from the menu fresh fruits and vegetables that can cause allergies;
  • do not put on the table fish dishes with bones, grapes, fruits with a rough skin and what a child can choke on, set aside for the holidays of the older generation;
  • Fruits and vegetables that can stain clothing should be kept to a minimum.

Beautiful and tasty snacks

Canape sandwiches have become very popular in the children's menu lately. In order for them to interest children, it is desirable to perform them in an unusual form of boats, stars or bugs. In addition, only safe products will be needed for their preparation, and it will take a little time to create them. nine0003

Canape sandwiches are very popular in the children's menu.

Canape is prepared only from fresh bread, preferably white, butter, slices of boiled pork, but not fried, but baked, delicate varieties of cheese and vegetables or fruits. Turn on your imagination and prepare canapes from those products that your beloved baby loves more.

It is important for children to never use skewers and toothpicks for canapés, the child may prick themselves with them.

Tasty and healthy salads for children's parties

Healthy salads can be arranged on a plate in the form of an animal or a flower, and little children will like this serving. There are a large number of salads, each mother can choose from this list for her menu those that she likes, but pay attention to this salad.

Salad "Sunshine"

The first thing I want to say is that it contains orange and lemon, so for children prone to allergies it is better not to cook it, otherwise it is very light, satisfying and tasty. nine0003

For its preparation you will need:

  • orange - 2 pcs.;
  • chicken eggs - 2 pcs., but they can be replaced with 8 quail eggs, which will make the salad even more useful;
  • boiled chicken - 300 g;
  • cucumber;
  • apple.

As a dressing, you can use a sauce made from yogurt, olive oil, a couple of drops of lemon juice and egg yolks.

Prepare the salad as follows: oranges, cucumber and apple, peeled and cut as small as possible. Peel the egg, finely chop and add to the rest of the ingredients, do the same with the chicken. Salt, mix and beautifully lay out in the form of a sun on a plate, pour sauce on top. nine0003

The salad is ready to be served to the kids. But remember that citrus fruits can cause allergies, so ask mothers invited to the kids' holiday about whether they can eat fruits that can provoke such a reaction. Be sure to adjust the menu based on this.

Tropics salad

The menu for the birthday of children of 2 years of age should be varied, hearty and light, so parents should pay attention to the Tropics salad, which almost all children love and eat it with great pleasure. The recipe is quite simple and easy, does not require much high costs, as it contains a small amount of ingredients. nine0003

To prepare it you will need:

  • 300 g chicken, boiled only;
  • 300-400 grams of pineapples;
  • 1 apple, green is better;
  • grapes in the amount of 1 cup.

Peel the apples, finely grate them and sprinkle lightly with lemon juice. Grind pineapple and add to apples, do the same with meat. Cut the grapes in half and add to the dish. You can fill with mayonnaise, but only homemade or yogurt. nine0003

Children eat sweet fruit salad with great pleasure!

You can also add a vegetable salad of tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbage and greens to the festive menu, but only chop the vegetables finely and season them with olive oil. It is better to serve salad on the table in small salad bowls for each child separately.

Sweet Fruit Salad

This delicious salad will be eaten by the child with great pleasure. It is prepared immediately before the guests arrive, as the fruit may lose its color, and the salad will not look very attractive. It is worth asking the parents of invited children if they are allergic to bee products and nuts, if not, then honey is added to the bottom of the salad bowl, and the top of the salad is sprinkled with chopped nuts. nine0003

For the salad you will need:

  • green apple, banana;
  • 1 cup sultana grapes;
  • 1 pear fruit;
  • cup of yogurt.

Take fruit without peel and cut into small pieces. Divide the grapes in half, combine with fruit. Mix everything, put in small salad bowls, and pour yogurt over the top of the dish. This delicious and at the same time light dish is prepared quickly and is sure to please children.

A child's birthday happens once a year, and 2 years once in a lifetime, and every mother wants to make this day special, so the menu for this day is selected carefully. nine0003

Salads are ready, but what a holiday without second courses, but what to cook for a children's birthday, what would be beautiful, tasty and liked by children.

Second courses

For a children's birthday, you should not cook a lot of hot dishes, because children eat little, they are more interested in entertainment than a festive table. Therefore, for a children's holiday, you can cook only a side dish and a meat dish.

For a child's birthday, when the child is only 2 years old and almost all guests are of the same age, it is better to choose meat dishes with minced meat. They cook quickly, the meat is tender, soft, a child at 2 years old will eat it with pleasure. nine0003

Each mother decides which recipe to choose for her child's birthday, but perhaps this one will be more like it.

Chicken zrazy with quail egg

Little children will definitely like these zrazy, because they are very tender and tasty, besides, they have a little secret inside that will interest the children and make them eat the food.

To make them you will need:

  • 400 g minced chicken;
  • 1/3 cup rice;
  • small carrots;

  6. Fry carrots and tomatoes in a frying pan.
  7. Put the zrazy in the gravy, add the broth so that it completely covers them.
