I know for me when I had my children I always appreciated the gift of toys and books.  Food rice, pastas, salads, chicken, cakes, sodas, juice water, bread, cheese, fruit, all sorts of yummy things you can choose from, it depends on your taste. At my ds baby shower there was so many different things to eat. Full meals with veggies and all sorts of sides and yummy desserts.

In our area we usually just serve finger foods, cake, and punch.  And it's fine for the men to come too.

Same here. Lots of snacks and sloppy joes or something. I also had a crock pot of mac n cheese at mine, at my request :P

A lite finger food meal is plenty, I saw a cute decoration on pinterest where they made a baby in a bassinet all out if fruit, the bassinet was a watermelon. So cute, I'll have to find a picture to post.

I always decorate with things that will be usable for the baby later ( like bottles for vases, or toys etc) then give them to the mom as part of my gift

Do people parent anymore? Do they even attempt to engage their child(ren)?

I always prefer a book with a nice note in it in lieu of a card.

Hebrew National has a box of pigs in a blanket that is pretty good.  They're not too expensive and my husband loved them.

 I think it's nice to invite the men as well. I'll check back with some things I've done for showers.

 This is really cute. I love to do it for baby showers, since it's non-alcoholic and fun.

 

 

"Margarita" Dip
1 package cream cheese, softened
ΒΌ cup frozen limeade concentrate, partially thawed
2 Tablespoons orange juice
1 cup thawed Cool Whip
1-2 drops of green food coloring-optional

Beat cream cheese, limeade concentrate and orange juice, and food coloring, if using. in medium bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping, cover. Refrigerate at least l hour. Serve with cut up fresh fruit and vanilla wafers.

Jazz it up by serving in a wide-brimmed margarita glass. Wipe rim with lime and dip rim in sugar before filling with dip!
