Need baby shower foods? Baby showers are such a fun way to welcome and celebrate a new arrival.  I love family and friends gathering together to shower the new baby and new Mom with gifts.

Baby Shower Foods Ideas

Food is a major part of any good shower, so here are some great ideas I have used.

This fruit-filled carriage would be a huge hit. Fill it with any fruit you fancy and serve purchased poppy seed dressing alongside if you desire.
