This beautiful spread will get everyone eating for two.
Super Easy Fruit Dip: With only two ingredients, this light dip lives up to its name. (Note: Use a very flavorful yogurt to make this fruit dip really shine.)
Bacon Quiche Tarts: Bacon, Swiss cheese, and green onions make these easy mini quiches irresistible. (Note: These can be made the day before, then warmed in a 200 degrees F (95 degrees C) oven for twenty minutes before serving. Or prepare the day of, but refrigerate and wait to bake until thirty minutes before you plan to serve.)
Chocolate Cupcakes: Indulge your guests with chocolaty baby-size cakes. (Note: Bake and decorate the day before the shower.)
Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri: Mix a big batch of this non-alcoholic refresher.
Party Ideas & Tips
Start the festivities mid-afternoon. After everyone has had a chance to meet and greet, signal "time to eat" by loading up a plate for the Mom-to-Be. (Guests never seem to want to be the first to dig in, but no one will make the guest of honor eat alone!)
Then it's game time, baby! Play a quick one just before presents: in the invitation, ask guests to send baby pictures of themselves. Make copies and create game boards for everyone with all the pics on each, then whoever can correctly match the most guests with their baby pictures, wins!
After presents have been opened, get everyone's blood flowing again with some physical activity. Give each guest an inflated balloon to stuff underneath their shirts and then it's time to play a little pregnant limbo. How low can you go? The Mom-to-Be might want to sit this one out, but she will not be at a loss for entertainment. (Besides, someone needs to make sure the balloon tummies clear the limbo pole!)
Before the party officially begins to wind down, pass out age-specific birthday cards so each guest can write a card to the unborn baby, meant to be opened at that age.
