The only problem I see with taco’s is that they can get messy.

What about trays of lasagna/pasta, salad, and bread/rolls. You can make the lasagna ahead of time and just pop it in the oven on the day of.

How about taco salads?  Purchase a set of the perfect tortilla pans ($10 at BB&B), and make the shells, and dice up all your veggies ahead of time, into serving bowls.  That way, the day of, all you have to do is prep the meat.  Same idea as tacos to go with the country western theme, but not as messy.  Maybe have regular ground beef, and then a pulled chicken – really easy in the crockpot.

At my sister in laws baby shower, we picked up a bunch of frozen appetizers from Costco – pigs in blankets, mini quiche, meatballs and so on. Then someone made tea sandwiches and some salads and it was perfect! Could you do something like that, with heavier hot appetizers?

If you want to serve substantial food, heavy appetizers work best for a shower because people will be up and mingling, balancing plates on laps, etc.  Tacos and lasagne are delicious, but not as easy to eat if you aren’t seated at a table.

How about wraps (or wrap and sandwich combo platters), cheese and crackers, assorted pickles and veggies w/dip? Easy, kind of inexpensive and looks lovely without being messy!

I second the sandwich wraps, cheese and crackers, and veggies and dip!  Maybe you could even make a fruit tray or display and have some chocolate fondue.
