There’s probably no better time to have a baby shower than in summer! The weather is warm and guests are excited to spoil you and your baby with gifts and great company. Summer baby showers are also great because of the food! You’ll be able to serve refreshing drinks and delicious foods that are perfect for the weather.
Here are some great summer baby shower food and drink ideas that guests will adore:
1. Ice Cream Sundae Bar
Ice cream and summer always go together and it would be a fun idea to add a sundae bar at your shower. Get tubs of various flavors of ice cream, put them on ice and then let guests create their own sundaes with various toppings.
It’s the perfect way for guests to indulge in their sweet tooth and to cool off with the warmer weather.
2. Sparkling Cherry Limeade
A sparkling cherry limeade beverage combines lime, sparkling water, limeade, cherry juice, limes and margarita salt to create this satisfying summer drink that can stay a mocktail for the soon-to-be-momma or an alcoholic beverage by just added vodka! Either way, it’s a refreshing drink for all in attendance!
3. Caprese Sandwich
Offering Caprese Sandwiches provides your guests with a simple, yet light, sandwich that’s easy to create. You just need ciabatta bread or a French baguette to start, then layer on fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. Top it
all off with a balsamic glaze and some salt and pepper. You’ll definitely have guests coming back for more!
4. Cucumber-Mint Water
Cucumber is always a go-to summer treat so offering guests a cucumber-mint water will satisfy their thirst at your summer baby shower. You’ll need cucumber, lime, mint and water. If you want to make it sweater, you can
always use tonic or turn it into an alcoholic beverage by adding vodka.
5. Individual Salads In Jars
Create individual salads in jars and set out a few different dressings so guests can choose their own preference. To make the salads in jars, you simply layer the ingredients. You can use regular lettuce, baby spinach or kale or even all three! Add in halved cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced cucumbers, cooked chicken or salad shrimp and quinoa (which goes way at the bottom). Add in the ingredients one-by-one and then top with lettuce. Guests can add their
dressings and then shake up the jar to enjoy their salad.
