From finger sandwiches to show-stopping desserts, here are menu ideas that are easy but impressive. You can mix and match these snack, appetizer, salad, main, dessert, and cocktail recipes to create your own menu.

Baby Shower Menu Ideas and Bridal Shower Menu Ideas:

Snacks and Appetizers:

Butter Bean Hummus | I like this butter bean hummus more than traditional hummus made with garbanzo beans. It has a light fresh taste – it is a taste that reminds me of summer (even when it isn’t).

Butter Bean Hummus

Homemade hummus tastes so much better, and this butter bean hummus is lighter in flavor than garbanzo bean hummus. To make it you just need to put the ingredients in a food processor and puree – so simple!


Gazpacho is healthy, light, and refreshing on a hot day. Plus it can be made in advance. You can pour it into small glasses and garnish with some croutons.

Orange Dark Chocolate Scones take just 22 minutes to prepare from start to finish. Your friends and family will love this easy recipe.


Scones with jam and clotted cream are great to serve at a morning event. You can make classic vanilla scones, or these orange and dark chocolate scones.

Sweet Peppers Stuffed with Spinach Dip

I think that filling sweet peppers with dip is the least messy and most elegant way to serve dip.


Asparagus Salad

I love the light lemon tarragon dressing and the mandarin oranges in this salad. 

Shopska Salad

Also called a Balkan Salad, this salad combines fresh tomatoes with cucumbers, red pepper, and feta and is lightly dressed olive oil and red wine vinegar.

The Allis Chopped Salad

Inspired by a Chicago restaurant, this is a salad that is a complete meal.

Brussels Sprout Salad

My sister insists on serving this at every party, and it is a perfect salad to serve at a party because it can be made a few hours in advance and the brussels sprouts won’t wilt. This salad also has apples, cheddar, and crispy prosciutto.

Pesto Pasta Salad

A pasta salad with an Italian twist with basil pesto, roasted tomatoes, and goat cheese.


Tea Sandwiches

Tea sandwiches are delicious, easy to make, and the perfect finger food to serve at a baby shower or bridal shower. I like to make a mix of egg salad, smoked salmon, and cucumber tea sandwiches that way there is something for everyone.

BLT Wraps

A classic BLT gets even better when you add mozzarella and avocado.

Avocado Toast

It seems like everyone loves avocado toast, and it is easy to set up a little avocado toast bar with different toppings.

Greek Chicken Pita Recipe | Greek Chicken Pitas made with chicken marinated in yogurt, lemon, and spices and served in pita bread with tzatziki and veggies.

Greek Chicken

This is one of my favorite things to serve at a party. I serve the chicken in a bowl and guests have the option to add it on top of a salad – like a Shopska Salad, or they can make a pita wrap. I love the idea of serving this at a bridal shower if the couple is planning to honeymoon in Greece.


Eton Mess is a traditional British dessert that is perfect for summertime!

Eton Mess

This traditional British dessert is light as air and easy to make. Just layer crushed meringues with whipped cream, strawberries, and strawberry sauce.

How to Make Crown Cookies filled with jam

Crown Cookies

These sugar cookie sandwiches filled with jam would be perfect for a baby shower!

Cake Pops

This dessert trend is fun for parties. I love that you can customize cake pops by adding your favorite cake flavor and using your favorite color sprinkles. If you don’t want to make them yourself, many bakeries sell them.

Roasted Strawberry Crepe Cake | A cake made with 25 layers of crepes filled with roasted strawberry custard. It looks so beautiful that people instantly get excited about it.

Roasted Strawberry Crepe Cake

Making a Crepe Cake can be a bit time consuming, but buying pre-made crepes at Whole Foods will save you time. This gorgeous dessert makes a lovely centerpiece for a celebration.


Rosé Slushies

Just add frozen peaches, strawberries, and watermelon to a blender along with rosé and a splash of vodka to make these Rosé Slushies.

Watermelon Cooler

This cocktail is made with a light watermelon lemonade and is garnished with cucumbers. You can omit the vodka to serve it at a baby shower.

How to make an Aperol Spritz

Aperol Spritz

I love a cocktail that involves a little bubbly! This cocktail has a nice balance of sweet and bitter tastes and can be made with only 4 ingredients.
