Pick a theme and roll with it if you want. I like mexican. it’s the easiest food to make. Your mom can make a platter of tamales or enchiladas, chip and dip (rotel!!!), salsa, guacamole, the list goes on.

As far as typical food, it’s been different for EVERY shower i’ve been to!

get a lot of little finger foods going! you can never go wrong with those! wingettes, mini quiche, finger sandwiches, pigs ina blankets, etc. if you get a lot and give variety, people will be happy.

cherry tomato, basil and Mozzarella skewers marinated in some balsamic vinegar are one of my party app go-tos… light, refreshing, and very easy to make  

Cantaloupe wrapped in prosciutto is also a favorite.

My big crowd pleaser is dates stuffed with goat cheese– absolutely delicious.  Just take the pits out of the dates then spoon in some goat cheese!

 

All 3 of these are insanely quick and easy to make.

What about:

Chicken salad plus croissants

Smokies (always popular around here)

Fruit dip+ sliced fruit (fruit dip: cream cheese, vanilla extract, brown sugar! even marshmallow fluff is good, too)

Roll ups (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/PHILLY-Make-Ahead-Spinach-Phyllo-Roll-Ups/Detail.aspx  you can make ahead and bake. we had these with chicken at a party. i think they used croissant dough though. same idea. delish)

Bacon wrapped chicken bites on toothpicks

Tortilla roll ups (cream cheese, ranch dip mix, chopped black olives, finely chopped bell pepper & onion – mix and spread onto tortillas, you can even add sliced deli meat and/or tomato and lettuce.  Chill for a couple hours, slice and serve.)

Chips w/ dip.  I love cream cheese blended with rotel.

Spinach artichoke dip w/toasted pita triangles

Smoked salmon w/ dill dip

Cold veggie tray w/dip (try crinkle cut raw squash, zuccini, carrot, and cucumber)

Cheese platter
