I just spent $112 on food for my friends baby shower. $60 of it was nothing but fruit and veggies. I cried a little realizing none if this is for my house lol. The other $60 was spent on supplies for a chicken salad, beanie weenies, stuff to make salsa, guacamole, French dip, hummus, tortillas to make into chips, cake supplies to make her cake, stuff to make a trail mix with, 5 cheeses for her cheese tray, and stuff to make these strawberry k-bobs she wants.

She's lucky I love her! Lol. Not many I would do this for....

Her menu is:

Fruit tray
veg tray
Chicken salad sandwiches
Cheese and nut/trail mix tray.
Homemade Chips with homemade salsa, home made guacamole, French dip and home made roasted garlic hummus.

Doesn't sound like much does it? Lol. But oh boy it adds up!

who was footing the bill for the food?  That isnt too bad for a shower considering catering could cost in the 1000s.

Bless her heart, she never got a shower with her DD. she delivered early and it was 2 weeks before her shower and no one threw her on or a welcome baby. So this time we are determined to do things right for her.

That's nice of you to do that for her.
