Menu ideas for a Valentine’s Day Baby Shower

If you’re having a baby shower close to Valentine's Day, then that would be the perfect theme for your party. And here is a great way to incorporate this “lovely” day into your menu.

Appetizer:

  • Red, white and pink mints.

  • Crackers with heart-shaped cheese – You can find a heart shaped cookie cutter at any craft or dollar store.

  • Heart shaped breadsticks – Just buy some refrigerate breadstick dough from the market and shape them into hearts. Then follow the baking instructions on the package.

Main dish:

  • Grilled sirloin tips with sautéed onions and mushrooms.

  • Baked fish with lemon.

  • Grilled chicken with peppers.

  • *Tip – save some money by shopping at a wholesale meat market.
                        Side dishes:
                      • Steamed veggies.

                      • Steamed rice.

                      Desserts:

                      • Chocolate fondue.

                      • Heart shaped cookies or brownies.

                      • Fruit Tart in a heart shaped pan.

                      • Chocolate ice cream served in martini glasses.

                      Drinks:

                      • Red or pink punch served in martini glasses. Add that special touch by serving heart shaped ice, and accenting the glass with a fresh strawberry.

                      • Strawberry smoothies.

                      • Sparkling cider.

                      Now, spruce up your tables:
                      *Use a white tablecloth for you buffet table and spread some red and pink synthetic (or real!) rose petals throughout.

                      *Fill a heart shaped bowl with Hershey’s kisses wrapped in red paper for your centerpieces.

                      *Eat by candlelight and use red and pink candles.
