Catering The Baby Shower

Baby showers have long been a staple in many families. The women gather to bestow gifts on the expectant mother and ooh and ah over little bibs and stuffed animals. Today, the gender reveal party is gaining traction where the family (boys and girls together for this one) gathers and the gender of the impending arrival is shown to all. Will the balloons, confetti, smoke, streamers, etc. be blue or pink? What will baby be?

Of course if you have a party you have to have some sort of food for the guests. Yes, you can make it a potluck where everyone in attendance brings a dish or two, or you as host can do it all alone, making little blue cupcakes or icing little pink cookies. Or, you can save all the fuss for someone else and have your next baby shower or gender reveal party catered by professionals.

Catering for any party means that you can relax and have fun rather than spend weeks preparing and the whole party worrying that the food is okay. You won’t have to go grocery shopping and spend tons of money on the food, as you can pick and choose from preexisting menus for each budget and party theme.

Most catering companies know exactly what to offer for each party type and many have tried and true foods that everyone will love. Best of all, they come to you, whether the party is at your house, at the expectant parent’s house or at a venue. Food can be delivered cold and then you heat it up or it can be delivered ready to eat, the choice is yours.

Want a sit down dinner? A buffet? A dessert party? A chocolate party? Don’t worry, a caterer will have you covered and you will likely be shocked at how it compares in price to going it alone. Best of all, with the food out of the way, you are free to actually enjoy the party and will be stress free, unless of course you are stressed about the gender of the new arrival! All kidding aside, a baby shower or gender reveal party is all about being happy for the soon to be parents and coming together to shower the new arrival with baby items and advice. It’s a great opportunity to get together with friends and relatives and really, who needs the extra work and stress of doing the food? Not you!
