Bows & Bow Ties Baby Shower Food

As I mentioned last week, my mom and I recently threw a double baby shower for my two sister in laws. The theme of the shower was Bows & Bow Ties since one baby will be a boy and one will be a girl.  The shower colors included pastel blue, yellow, and green. To see our planning details and free printable planning sheets, click here. Today I am going to share with you all about the shower food–hope you aren’t hungry 🙂

Let’s start with the drinks. In the months before the shower, mom and I started collecting empty Starbucks glass bottles from our family and friends.  We used the glass bottles as personalized drinking glasses for all the guests.  I simply tied a name pendant onto each bottle using baker’s twine in yellow and blue. I created the pendants using Word-just type the guest names, print on cardstock, cut, and hole punch!

The drinks…

  • Cherry Lemonade
  • Sugar Free Peach Tea
  • Ice Water with Lemons & Limes
  • Sweet Tea

Since the shower was held from 2:00 PM-4:00 PM, we decided to have appetizers and lots of fun desserts.  We used the first food table to house the appetizers and the second table for the yummy desserts and candy bar.

The appetizers…

  • Veggie & Pita Chips
  • Fresh Veggies & Dip
  • Cheese Cubes & Crackers
  • Fruit Skewers & Fruit Dip
  • Fresh Fruit in Watermelon Baby Buggy

We served individual cups of veggie dip with assorted veggies in tea light candle holders.  They were so fun to make! The trays the cups are on are actually made from picture frames with scrapbook paper.  To add detail, I created a felt bow and bow tie and hot glued them to the end of the frames. I’ll share how to make the felt decorations in a few weeks–they are so easy and cute!

Instead of serving the fruit in a bowl, we made fruit skewers that we served in a flower pot.  We also used a carved watermelon baby buggy to serve extra fruit.

The desserts…

  • Dipped Marshmallows
  • Dipped Oreos
  • Dipped Pretzels
  • Oreo Truffles
  • Cupcakes

To make the cupcake bow and bow tie toppers, I simply created a Word Doc with multiple images of the bows and bow ties.  I then printed them and punched them out into a circle shape and hot glued them on toothpicks.

I also used the images to create food & drink labels and the name pendants for the individual drink bottles. You can download them from the library.

The candy bar…

To serve the candy, we also used tea light candle holders for each guest to fill up with candy of their choosing.  We used picture frames and scrapbook paper to add the phrase “Take a Cup…Fill it up” to help guests know what the cups were for.

In the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing about the decorations we used and the games that were played at the shower. Have a wonderful week!
