Baby Shower Food Ideas - Baby Chick

Hosting a baby shower is such an important job to support a mother-to-be. I will never forget my baby shower and all the work my mom put into it to host for me. I am forever grateful!

Planning a baby shower is a lot of work, from the guest list to the décor, the baby shower games, and most importantly, the food. There is a lot of thought and effort that goes into a shower.

What to Consider When Planning the Baby Shower Food

When planning the menu, you want to consider the preferences of the mother-to-be and serve some of her favorite foods, along with considering the theme.

The theme of my shower was “Fiesta, Baby,” and we had a taco and nacho bar—some of my favorite things and on theme! You will also want to consider your guests’ dietary needs and ensure you have some gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, and vegan offerings mixed in. That way there is a little something for everyone in the spread. Of course, make sure to have plenty of bottles of hand sanitizer available to your guests as they prepare to make their way through the food offering. This will help keep everyone healthy.

Baby Shower Appetizers

Finger foods are excellent to serve at baby showers, and anything “mini” is always a charming option for the food table. I love going to a baby shower where many different appetizers are served. Bonus points if they are on a toothpick or in a single serving cup! Serving many appetizers is a great way to have lots of options for your guests that meet the needs of even the pickiest of attendees. Here are some delicious ideas for appetizers:

  • Pimento cheese crostini
  • Charcuterie board
  • Individual cups of cut veggies and dressing
  • Tea sandwiches
  • Fruit kebabs
  • Sandwich pinwheels
  • Meatballs
  • Pigs in a blanket
  • Stuffed mushrooms
  • Mini crab cakes
  • Shrimp cocktail
  • Spanakopita

Baby Shower Buffet

Buffets of entrée foods are a great, inclusive baby shower food idea for your guests. They can choose exactly how they want to customize their meal according to their preferences and dietary needs. I have shared some fun buffet ideas and examples of items to put on that buffet that will give your guests many options.

  • Taco/nacho bar (taco meat, chicken, refried beans, sour cream, salsa, taco shells, tortillas, corn chips)
  • Baked potato bar (cheese, chili, sour cream, chives, butter, bacon, ham, black olives, scallions, chicken)
  • BBQ and fixins (pulled chicken, pulled pork, brisket, coleslaw, macaroni and cheese, baked beans, potato salad, cornbread)
  • Bagels (various cream cheese flavors, lox, capers, pickled onions, dill)

Baby Shower Brunch

A common time for baby showers is a brunch shower! I have often been to showers late Sunday morning, and I love a good brunch shower. Here are some yummy options for baby shower food ideas during brunch:

  • Mini quiches
  • Breakfast casserole(s) both with meat and vegetarian
  • Deviled eggs
  • Baked French toast
  • Chicken salad on Hawaiian rolls
  • Croissants
  • Scones
  • Muffins
  • Fruit salad

Baby Shower Desserts

The options for baby shower desserts are endless and the center of a shower’s celebration. Most traditionally, you can serve a beautiful cake decorated akin to the shower’s theme. A trendy idea is to have a dessert bar with lots of different options for your guests to choose from. Here are some other more non-traditional dessert ideas:

  • Decorate your own cookie station
  • Cinnamon buns (cute for a “bun in the oven” theme)
  • Cake pops
  • Cookies
  • Chocolate covered pretzels
  • Petit fours
  • Cupcakes
  • Fun-sized candy bars
  • Hershey’s Kisses
  • Personalized M&M’s
  • Caramel popcorn
  • Chocolate covered strawberries
  • Rice Krispie Treats
  • Chex Muddy Buddies

Baby Shower Drinks

The drinks you offer at a baby shower depend heavily on the theme! One cute theme that I have seen is “Something’s Brewing.” You would serve beer and coffee at that shower. At a brunch shower, you’ll probably have a mimosa bar with lots of different juice offerings. Depending on the time of day and audience, a signature cocktail inspired by the mother-to-be is also a cute idea! Of course, a nice offering to have is mini bottles of water. I find that at events where the mini bottles are served, it cuts down on the half-empty bottles of water being found everywhere when the event is over!

  • Mimosa bar (various fruit juices such as mango, pineapple, orange)
  • Coffee or hot cocoa station
  • Iced tea
  • Hot tea
  • Infused water
  • Signature cocktail
  • Bottled water

I hope this inspires you as you plan for baby shower hosting responsibilities. You can mix and match from this list of food ideas and pull off a flawless shower! The guests and mother-to-be will love what you put together, no matter what you choose to do.

Pink children's furniture. Pink color for a children's room - a fashionable and stylish design for a child (80 photos) Gray pink children's room for girls

Many people associate pink with love and tenderness. Undoubtedly, a nursery in pink is perfect for. From birth, mothers buy their daughters clothes in pink colors.

This is done on a subconscious level. Of course, no one will blindly follow the fashion and prejudices that girls wear pink, but -.

The point is that pink has a positive effect on the child's emotional well-being and helps to cope with illnesses. So in some hospitals, the wards are painted in this color.

The pink children's room will become your child's favorite place and will be one of your decorations.

Before you start decorating the nursery, make sure that your project is not overflowing with pink in the truest sense of the word. Indeed, despite the fact that this is quite a pleasant color, you should not make a barbie house out of the room.

Too tasteless and unnatural. To get started, look at the approximate photos of the pink children's room, and using their example, imagine what you want to see in the end.

First of all, this is the child's bedroom, where he will rest, develop, carry out tasks in the future, and bring friends. Therefore, it is important not to disturb the harmony and elegance of the room.

You need to be able to choose the right stylish elements so that the room remains childish and personifies the halo of femininity. How to do it?

Cool pink colors for children's room

Already being pregnant, a woman plans her future and the future of her baby. If you know that a girl will appear, you can safely decorate the room in pink. Well, if it is not sugary pink shades.

Bright pink walls in the nursery

For teenagers with an explosive character, it is quite appropriate to decorate the room in pink, but in certain colors.

Parents of girls want to turn their room into a real fairy tale, so pink children's furniture is often chosen. With its help, you can correctly place the emphasis on the necessary elements.

In particular, children's pinks come in the form of a magic carriage or a real feather bed for a princess. But do not overdo it. Children grow up very quickly. Perhaps a teenage girl will not like sleeping in Cinderella's bed.

That's why fabulous decor can be expressed in less massive things. For example, it can be toys or a picture on the wall.

Due to economic instability and the impossibility of redecorating every year, it will be practical if the design of the room will be relevant for many years and not seem out of place when your child grows up.

Pink children's room is the dream of almost every girl. It is gentle, romantic, associated with a princess from a children's fairy tale, and is the best suited for the “princess” style. Each color has its own influence on the human psyche, and pink is one of the most positive in this sense. Comfort, coziness, peace - that's what can give a child.

This is a very grateful color from the point of view of designers. Decoration for nursery in pink tones allows you to use the entire palette of possibilities: traditional and modern furniture, accessories of various styles and directions will look equally harmonious against such a background.

Pink is a complex color, its shades can be warm or cold. The interiors are very different.

Warm. When added to red as the basis of orange and yellow tones, a variety of warm pink shades are obtained, for example, “baby”, rose ash, coral, peach, and some others. Pink children's room in warm shades looks very cute, cozy.

Cold. To get cold shades, blue, purple, lilac are added to the main tone. The result is colors close to lavender, fuchsia, and raspberry tones. cold range will look better if its design is made in a modern style.

When choosing what shades yours should be in, it is worth remembering that the child's preferences are more important than the designers' ideas.


Having chosen the main tone, you need to think about what it is best to combine with. At the same time, remember the rule: shades of the same range are best combined with each other: warm or cold.

The following options are suitable for a pink children's room:

White. Adding white surfaces, such as white furniture, will make the room even softer, giving it a festive, dressy vibe.

Grey. Calm, soft solution for nursery in pink . Gray muffles the pink range, brings a sense of peace, stability.

Yellow. Yellow is the color of the sun, energy, warmth. It causes a feeling of cheerfulness, relieves drowsiness, drives away fatigue.

Green. Pink and green are a natural combination. A pink rose on a green stem is a symbol of beauty and perfection. Complement nursery in pink green accents, and it will look very harmonious.

Blue. Pretty rare combination. However, when properly chosen in terms of color, it looks interesting, and is especially suitable for interiors in a modern style.

Textile accessories made in active, contrasting colors - lilac, violet, lilac, will help to revive and give brightness to such an interior.

Decorating a baby's bedroom for a newborn is one of the most difficult and enjoyable tasks. I want to create the perfect interior, especially when it comes to a girl. Everything is important here: the model of the crib, the color scheme of the room, and numerous bows with ruffles. We offer to stay on the traditional color for girls - pink.

Every nursery decorated in pink is still unique and special. It all depends on its size, the chosen shade and decor. The result can be both a classic and an extravagant version, but in any case, they will be unusually cute and cozy.

The World of Pink

Experts say that colors have a huge impact on a child's mood, which is why choosing the right color is so important. Pink is ideal for a nursery, as it combines energy and tenderness in itself. It is the color of beauty and femininity. Although rooms look light and elegant thanks to him, it is still worth adding a scattering of other bright colors to get a harmonious interior. Wallpaper with a pattern or interesting accessories are a must to appear in the room.

Pink can be introduced into a girly room decorated in any style and theme. Beautiful butterflies on the walls, a bright rainbow or nature motifs - everything will help create a luxurious nursery. In this case, no less attention is paid to the ceiling, we must not forget about the right lighting.

Modernity and adaptability

Everyone loves children's room interiors that "grow" with their residents and their ever-increasing needs. A modern newborn bedroom can follow this trend too. This will eliminate the need to change the design every two years, incurring serious financial expenses.

However, one should not forget that children quickly get tired of their environment. The girl will grow up quickly and will require a change of interior. Therefore, if you really want to make the room pink, then for the background it is still better to choose as calm and neutral tones as possible. It is worth paying attention to carpets, curtains, decor and bedding. They can be safely made pink.

Pink looks great in both large and small rooms. It goes well with almost any color. However, in small bedrooms it is better to opt for delicate shades. Pastels are all the rage right now and look incredibly luxurious when paired with deep blues, corals, reds and golds. In addition, light pink will help create an open, pleasant atmosphere, without the slightest hint of despondency.

interior ideas, photos and tips

A room for a teenage girl is a special space, and most parents, fortunately, understand this. Pink unicorns are a thing of the past, you have to decorate the room in a completely new way - not like for yesterday's baby. How exactly - they asked the experts: an interior designer and a child psychologist.

Svetlana Shalygo

interior designer

She is an artist-designer by education, she graduated from the Faculty of Interior Art at FEFU. He has been creating his own design projects since 2010. Favorite trends: modern minimalism, eco-style, loft.

Nina Shkileva

analytical psychologist

Author of training courses for child psychologists: "Working with parents", "Psychological support for children online", "Working with parents in the context of requests related to sexual education".


Necessary areas: for recreation, work, a place for receiving guests, a beauty corner.

We pay special attention to the private part of the room - it must be clearly separated from the public space.

Svetlana Shalygo : In a teenager's room, as in an ordinary nursery, there are definitely needed areas for relaxation, study and a place for receiving guests. Comfortable bed, spacious closet, desk. Dressing table and pouffe or large floor mirror. There can be two mirrors - for cosmetic procedures and a dressing room, in height, which will help you appreciate the whole image. To save space, mirror inserts are often used in wardrobes.

You can draw boundaries between individual zones in different ways - using partitions, working with color and lighting. It is better to separate the recreation area physically - with a partition. Spot lighting is important to organize above the desk and at the dressing table. To do this, you can use not only table or wall lamps and sconces, but also built-in lights. Near the bed, you also need a lamp that gives a soft, soft light.

Design option for a teenager's room from IKEA designers. The partition function is taken over by an open modular rack. It is convenient to store little things that should always be at hand, and hide from prying eyes if the soul asks for privacy

Nina Shkileva: H it is necessary to correctly separate private and public space from each other. The privacy zone is very important. This part of the room must be clearly delimited from the main space, it should not be visible from the door or from the corridor.

In addition to the bed, here you can place a mirror, shelves for cosmetics - but not all girls need such a “beauty corner”, this should also be discussed with the future hostess of the room. Here, in a private area, closed cabinets will come in handy, where the child can put away some things that he does not want to keep in sight.

The space under the window can be turned into a comfortable place for relaxation, reading or creativity - a small sofa fits perfectly in a niche. The main thing is the right curtains: they should not be heavy and too long. The best option is cafe or Roman curtains, it is convenient to adjust them in height. Additional seating is easy to arrange by purchasing a pair of poufs or bean bags. Project SHAMROCK APARTMENT, design — Igor and Alena Skarzhevsky

In the reception area, there will be enough seats and a small table for some joint activities. A good solution is bean bags or a few large pillows, a soft rug to sit on the floor.

It can be difficult for parents to adapt to the fact that you can’t go into the child’s room at will and take care of it, but if there is such a habit, it will have to be abandoned.

The seating area is separated from the rest of the room by a partition, which creates the right level of privacy. The decor uses neutral tones and simple shapes. Individual accent items enliven the interior: for example, an unusual red bedside table. Judging by the helmet of Darth Vader, which lies on this bedside table, the room most likely belongs to a boy. But many girls will also like this design. Barin House project, designer Evgeniy Zhdanov

Finishes and materials

Adolescence is an era of great change, and a girl's room should meet this condition. Expensive, complex, "monumental" repairs for this room will not work, it is better to choose practical coatings. To make the interior more interesting, decor will help, which is easy to update when you want.

Svetlana Shalygo : Decorative coatings can be anything, but it is important to consider that the tastes and desires of a teenager change quickly. Therefore, for example, for walls it is better to choose a coating that can be quickly updated. The walls can be painted in your favorite color, and if you get bored after six months, repaint it. Some girls like photo wallpapers - it's easy to choose a plot that best suits the tastes and translates the interests of the child: you can be inspired by movies and cartoons, fashion style, etc.

With the help of pastel shades, you can create dozens of beautiful combinations, and it will not be difficult to fit new details into an existing interior. The light coating of the walls and floor visually pushes the boundaries, makes the room more spacious. Project and photo by Svetlana Shalygo

Renovating a floor covering is technically more difficult than a wall covering, so it’s better to immediately choose an option that will last a long time while maintaining a presentable look. The most popular type of flooring is laminate. Calm neutral shades are best suited - in this case, you can experiment with wall coverings, the color of furniture and textiles without restrictions.

Favorite toys sometimes remain in a teenager's room - no longer for playing, but simply as an element of decor. For example, as here - plush hares decorate open shelves and a cabinet in a colonial style. Project "Apartment on Efremov Street", designer Tatyana Ilyina

Nina Shkileva: Fathers and children almost never agree on tastes, and this is a potential conflict zone. When repairs have not yet been made, but only planned, all key decisions must be discussed with the child. His wishes must be taken into account.

Muted pastel shades in the recreation area are especially appropriate. If the interior in bright colors seems boring, one wall can be pasted over with photo wallpaper - “watercolor” drawings look very nice. Project SHAMROCK APARTMENT.

It may happen that the girl wants something exotic, for example, some very expensive designer coating, and these expenses are not included in the parents' plans - in this case, it must be indicated that the idea will not be realized. But just saying no is not an option. It is necessary to name the reasons, to offer an alternative. Yes, we don't always get what we want. This is fine. The outside world is not always ready to adapt to our desires, and when we realize this, we grow up.

Color and decor

A smart solution for a teenage girl's room is a calm solid background and bright details that can be updated as needed. Accent textiles, photos, posters and posters on the walls will allow you to transform the interior, change it according to your mood without compromising the parental budget. The hostess of the room needs to be given creative freedom in this regard.

Svetlana Shalygo : Basically, progressive teenage ladies now prefer monophonic coatings, calm colors. Beige, light green, light blue, coffee and cream color are popular options. Wallpaper with a pattern is usually rejected by teenagers ("grandmother's design").

A monochrome interior allows you to experiment with textiles and decor as much as you like, and gives you creative freedom. For example, in a light beige room, bright pillows, armchairs, poufs, rugs with funny prints will look beautiful.

Some teenagers like to hang posters on the walls with such "programmatic" statements. And some are not even lazy to make such posters by hand. If you carefully observe the change of pictures and signatures, you can learn a lot of useful information from them. For example, such a poster may well be an instruction for a parent

Another great solution is all kinds of moodboards. Posters that can be periodically swapped and updated will help create the right mood. You can place a whole gallery of images on the walls, and for this it is not at all necessary to spoil the decorative coating - you can, for example, use magnetic wall paint. With its help, it is possible to create a surface that is quite ordinary in appearance, but unusual in properties, to which everything will be magnetized.

The original decoration of the wall is a luminous garland and a set of lovely photos. A girl can make such a decor on her own. You can fix the resulting effect using designer pillowcases with original prints and inscriptions.

Nina Shkileva : Green hair, wild, in the opinion of parents, clothes, strange musical tastes - a typical story for a teenager. Puberty is associated with protest, and the child's room, like his appearance, of course, bears the imprint of this protest. This is normal, the interior should reflect, first of all, not the parental taste, but the personality of the child.

Shades of ice cream, white and pink colors are a traditional combination of colors for a girl's room. The degree of cuteness can be reduced by using simple geometric shapes, Roman blinds, and ironic decor.

It should be taken into account that many teenagers in every possible way deny the fact that they were children yesterday. You need to be prepared for the fact that the collection of plush toys, which has always "lived" in the nursery, is now suddenly perceived as hostile. It’s not worth arguing - it’s better to just move things that have lost their relevance somewhere for storage.

Wherever possible, the child should be given the opportunity to decide something, to do something independently. This applies to colors, decor, even furniture placement. If you manage to approach the issue together and creatively, great.

A slate board placed on the wall can become a work surface and be used for study. But more often it is used for creativity - to draw, write, leave messages at home. It is very convenient, for example, if you are not talking to your mother, but something important needs to be reported. Apartment 112 project, designer Evgeniy Zhdanov

Svetlana Shalygo: Win-win, universal option - modern minimalism. Romantic natures choose light classics, boho, shabby chic: if you use elements of these styles, you get beautiful, “adult”, feminine interiors. Rebel girls prefer loft and grunge styles: rough textures, expressive dark shades.

Light classics are almost always appropriate, especially romantically inclined young ladies appreciate it. A headboard with a floral print, carved furniture, photographs and paintings on the walls - a harmonious, bright, calm space. Apartment project in Michurino, designer Olesya Shlyakhtina

Nina Shkileva: We need a balance. A teenager's room still should not look like an adult lady's boudoir. Ironic decor, bright color spots, original prints, interesting objects that you want to consider are appropriate. But overloading the room with decorations is also not worth it - it can be tiring.

Modern style is not always about peace and tranquility. To create a dynamic interior, juicy colors, unusual prints, original decor are suitable.

How to deal with clutter

Tolerate: The chaos in the room can reflect the internal state of the child and be comfortable for him. You can unobtrusively contribute to reducing the mess by carefully considering storage locations - organize them wherever possible. It is possible that at some point the girl herself will want to put things in order.

Svetlana Shalygo : Carefully consider storage, using maximum opportunities for this. Wardrobe and chest of drawers for everyday clothes and linen, niches under the bed for seasonal items that are used infrequently. Hobbies and hobbies also require a place - if a child goes in for sports, it will be sports equipment, if creativity - musical instruments, materials for needlework, brushes, paints, etc. For many of these things, open storage is suitable: shelving, shelves, coasters.

Nothing contributes to maintaining order in the nursery like a separate dressing room, and plus - a lot of organizers for all sorts of little things. Spacious racks, niches for bags, suitcases, boxes will also help to unload the room. Project by Svetlana Shalygo

A skateboard or snowboard, for example, can be mounted on a wall with special hooks or hangers. Not too large musical instruments like a guitar also look great on the wall. For a collection of toys or souvenirs, a special rack is useful - floor or wall.

A bed with drawers will greatly simplify the cleaning process - the linen can be neatly folded (or quickly stuffed) into the drawer, and you don’t have to make excuses for an unmade bed. Apartment project in Dynasty Residential Complex, designer Elena Mizotina

Nina Shkileva : What we, adults, perceive as a mess, a child may not consider as such at all. All people are different. Someone is disturbed by visual noise, and someone is nervous in an atmosphere of total order. And housing reflects our inner state. A teenager can feel unstable, experience confusion even without any external reasons, just against the background of hormonal changes and an age crisis. And the room in which chaos reigns can be his "portrait". There is a capacious word "synarnik" - this is the name of the room of a teenage boy. In fact, it's the same with girls. Advice to adults: be patient, it will pass.
