If your baby shower happens to coincide with the spooky season, why not plan a fun Halloween-themed baby shower. That you’ll never forget. If you can already envisage your party decorations but are struggling to think of Halloween-themed snacks which are appropriate for a baby shower.
Halloween baby shower food ideas:
Babies in blankets:
Babies in blankets is a Halloween-inspired take on the classic finger food pigs in blankets, which are just small sausages that have been wrapped in pastry. To draw the facial details on your “babies”, simply purchase a black edible marker. To add a Halloween theme to your presentation, you may want to place a printed-out picture of David Bowie in the Labyrinth above your babies in blankets. As in the Labyrinth, Jareth, who is played by David Bowie tries to steal the main character’s baby brother Toby. If you’re really creative you can even opt to place your babies in blankets in a labyrinth of food.
Pumpkin shaped sugar cookies:
You can’t go wrong offering your baby shower guests cute pumpkin-shaped sugar cookies. If you know the gender of your baby, you can even opt to decorate pink-themed Halloween sugar cookies or blue-themed Halloween sugar cookies. As a nod to your baby’s gender. Although if you don’t want to conform to gender stereotypes, there’s nothing wrong with opting for cute orange pumpkins instead.
Halloween onesie shaped cookies:
If you don’t like the idea of baking pumpkin-shaped cookies, you may prefer the idea of decorating cookies in the shapes of baby onesies. Which you can then decorate with Halloween details. For example, you may want to place miniature bats on your baby onesies or to use orange frosting on your onesie cookies.
Orange cotton candy:
As cotton candy is associated with childhood, it’s a fun idea to have a cotton candy machine on hand to produce orange cotton candy for your guests. Alternatively, you may want to place orange cotton candy in takeaway bags, to give your baby shower guests as gifts. As it’s always a great idea to give your guests gifts to thank them for attending your party.
Halloween baby shower cupcakes:
You can ice your baby shower cupcakes with little ghosts and witches. You can even ice little pacifiers on your little ghosts and witches to make them even cuter.
If you’re running short of time, you may want to purchase jumbo-sized marshmallows which you can draw eyes and noses on using an edible black marker.
Halloween themed cocktails:
To ensure that your guests aren’t thirsty, it’s a fun idea to serve Halloween-themed cocktails and mocktails such as a creamsicle shake which you can pitch as a screamsicle shake. Offering mocktails as well as cocktails is a great idea as not everyone consumes alcoholic drinks.
Following the Halloween theme, you may want to serve your guests pumpkin soup in cute Halloween-themed mugs.
In conclusion, if you’ve fallen in love with the idea of throwing a Halloween-themed baby shower, to celebrate the coming arrival of your little bundle of joy, it’s well worth serving all of the spooky-themed finger foods which have been listed above. All of which are great Halloween themed baby shower ideas.
