  • If it's only going to be 10 people or less my suggestion would be to by 2-4 $5 foot longs from Subway and cut them up indivually and stick a tooth pick in them and put them on a nice serving plate. That way you have covered the meat part and the guest will be pretty satisfied.

  • Sandwich rings, rigatoni w/ rolls & butter and salad, meat and cheese trays usualyy go over pretty well and not real expensive to make! Maybe a box of chicken from Walmart (we've had them for our kids birthday parties and get togethers) and it's actually very good!

  • I'm sorry hun I didn't see that it's only for about 10 people. I'd go w/ the subway idea! Maybe my suggestions would be better if there were going to be more people, sorry about that!

  • you can just take sclices of ham and cheese, roll them up and stick a tooth pick in them. Its fun and easy!
    another thing i make for holidays as well is ... pickels cream cheese and ham.
    Take a slice of ham, spread the cream cheese on it and wrap that around a pickle. slice the pickle up. Sounds weird but its SOOOO good! everyone loves that. SUPER EASY AND FAST to make as well. Check online, there are tons and tons of cute little things like that!!
    GOOD LUCK with your shower and the new baby!! :)

  • Your friends and family are supposed to do this for you. You are the pregnant one. Why isn't your mother doing it for you? I am not the above Anon, but another one. This is not proper etiquette.

  • My family lives 3000 miles away and my friend son has become sick(she needs to be with her kid,not my baby shower)We have done pretty much everything together already. All i have to do is the Menu. Plus I really dont think anyone will care i picked the menu.Its free food and a chance to be babyless for a couple hours ;)
