  • Are you having it at work? I would do hot sandwiches and have everyone sign up to bring a dish to pass.

  • I would do cold sandwiches from shoprite and ask some people to bring dishes and keep it simple.

  • Sandwiches are always good. I would also do what others have said. Do a potluck where everyone brings a dish. Good luck!!

  • Finger foods are always good, salads, different kinds of odourves, you can probably buy them already made.

  • Finger foods are great. Veggie and fruit tray, chicken salad sandwhiches on crossants. You could als have homemade punch for drinks.

  • I love them. I think that for myself, being a mommy that is not working, I love the help. I want my son to have everything that he wants and needs and never have to ask for anything. And the baby shower that my mom threw me was the greatest! I got lots of stuff. I think that you should have them for the right reasons. Mine is not because I want the popularity or the gifts and am not thankful for them. I want to be able to provide for my lil boy when he gets here. Baby showers are fun to go to and have done for you and do for others.
