Factors to Consider When Choosing Finger Foods for a Baby Shower

When it comes to choosing finger foods for a baby shower, there are a few factors to keep in mind. Here are some things to consider:

  • Guests’ dietary restrictions: It’s important to keep in mind any dietary restrictions or allergies that your guests may have. Make sure to have a variety of options available, including vegetarian, gluten-free, and nut-free options.
  • The theme of the baby shower: Consider the theme of the baby shower when choosing finger foods. For example, if the theme is “Under the Sea,” you could serve seafood-inspired finger foods like crab cakes or shrimp skewers.
  • Time of day: The time of day that the baby shower is being held can also impact the type of finger foods that you choose. For a morning or brunch baby shower, consider serving breakfast-inspired finger foods like mini quiches or fruit skewers. For an afternoon or evening baby shower, you could serve heartier options like sliders or mini pizzas.
  • The number of guests: Make sure to have enough finger foods to feed all of your guests. A good rule of thumb is to plan for 8-10 different types of finger foods for every 20 guests.

When it comes to nutritional information, it’s always a good idea to have this information available for your guests.

You could create a table with the nutritional information for each finger food option, including the number of calories, fat, protein, and carbohydrates.


Presentation and Serving Suggestions

Decorative Platters

When it comes to serving Baby Shower Finger Foods, presentation is key.

You want your guests to be wowed not only by the taste but also by the way the food is presented.

One way to do this is by using decorative platters.

You can find platters in various shapes and sizes to fit your theme.

For example, if you’re having a nautical-themed summer baby shower, you can use a platter in the shape of a boat or anchor.

If you’re having a woodland-themed baby shower, you can use a platter in the shape of a tree or animal. 

When we threw a fall baby shower for my sister we did a Thanksgiving theme and used turkey and pumpkin-shaped platters and we served fall-themed finger foods.


Serving Utensils

Another way to make your Baby Shower Finger Foods stand out is by using unique serving utensils.

You can use mini chalkboard signs to label each food item or use miniature clothespins to attach labels to the serving utensils.

You can also use themed serving utensils such as mini baby bottles or pacifiers.

This adds a fun and playful touch to your presentation.

When it comes to serving utensils, it’s important to choose the right ones for each food item.

For example, you wouldn’t want to use a fork to serve a mini quiche or a spoon to serve a chicken wing.

Make sure you have a variety of utensils such as tongs, spoons, forks, and toothpicks to serve your Baby Shower Finger Foods.


Do’s and Don’t’s for Baby Shower Finger Foods

When it comes to planning the perfect baby shower, one of the most important things to consider is the food.

After all, a delicious spread of finger foods can make or break the party.

Here are some do’s and don’ts to keep in mind when selecting baby shower finger foods.


  • Offer a variety of options to accommodate different dietary needs and preferences.
  • Choose foods that are easy to eat with your hands, such as mini quiches, stuffed mushrooms, and fruit skewers.
  • Incorporate some fun and creative dishes, like baby-themed cupcakes or cookies shaped like pacifiers or baby bottles.
  • Consider the time of day and the length of the party when planning the menu. If it’s a mid-afternoon event, lighter fare like tea sandwiches and fruit salad may be more appropriate than heavy appetizers.


  • Avoid serving messy or greasy foods that could stain clothing or make a mess, like BBQ wings or sloppy joes.
  • Stay away from anything that requires utensils or is difficult to eat, like soup or spaghetti.
  • Don’t forget to label any foods that contain common allergens like nuts or dairy.
  • Don’t go overboard with the sweets – while it’s fun to have a few indulgent treats, make sure there are plenty of savory options as well.



Planning a baby shower can be a lot of work, and you may have some questions about finger foods.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about baby shower finger foods:

What are some easy baby shower finger foods?

If you’re short on time or don’t want to spend a lot of money, there are plenty of easy and affordable baby shower finger foods you can make. Some examples include:

  • Fruit skewers
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Veggie cups with dip
  • Mini quiches
  • Deviled eggs


How do I make sure there are enough finger foods for everyone?

As a general rule of thumb, plan on serving 8-10 different types of finger foods for a two-hour baby shower.

For a three-hour shower, plan on serving 12-15 different types of finger foods.

You should also plan on making enough of each type of finger food so that each guest can have 2-3 pieces.


What are some finger foods that can be made ahead of time?

If you’re short on time, it’s a good idea to make some of your finger foods ahead of time.

Some finger foods that can be made ahead of time include:

  • Mini quiches
  • Deviled eggs
  • Cheese balls
  • Fruit skewers
  • Veggie cups with dip


What are some finger foods that can be made gluten-free?

If you have guests who are gluten-free, it’s important to provide some finger foods that they can enjoy. Some gluten-free finger foods include:

  • Caprese skewers
  • Fruit skewers
  • Crudites with dip
  • Deviled eggs
  • Gluten-free crackers with cheese or hummus


What should I serve at a 2 pm baby shower?

An early afternoon baby shower is customary to serve finger foods. 

You don’t have to serve a full-mal which makes it a budget-friendly baby shower option.

Some menu options I have seen at an afternoon baby shower include:

  • Finger sandwiches, such as cucumber and cream cheese, chicken salad, or egg salad.
  • Fresh fruit skewers or a fruit salad
  • Cheese, crackers, pepperoni
  • Mini quiches or frittatas
  • Mocktails, punch, or homemade sodas for non-alcoholic beverage options

You should make sure that whatever food you choose, you keep the mom-to-be’s likes and wishes in mind.


What are some ideas for food at a baby shower?

It can depend on the time of day that you hold the baby shower.

But those are not hard and fast rules and you serve whatever you want.

I have been to many early after-noon baby showers that had a buffet-type meal, a barbecue, and one that only served finger foods.

It can also depend on your baby shower venue.

If you are holding it at a restaurant they may expect you to have them cater your event.

If you are hosting at home you have more options.

You can serve finger foods or you can serve a full meal.

I’ve hosted baby showers where I served Lagna, salad, and rolls as the main meal and they have always been a big hit.

It’s always a good idea to have a variety of options to accommodate everyone.

And if you’re concerned about the nutritional information of each dish, consider putting together a table with the calorie count and other relevant information.

With these 37 baby shower finger food ideas, you’re sure to have a delicious and memorable event.
