You can also link your menu items to different nursery rhymes. For examples, you can place deviled eggs on a platter, then set a brick in the center of the platter and perch a toy Humpty Dumpty on the brick. Or you can salute Mary Mary Quite Contrary with a vegetable tray and the man that lives on Drury Lane with a basket of muffins. You can also serve punch in a galvanized bucket for Jack and Jill and hot tea for Polly Put the Kettle On.
Baby Boy or Baby Girl ThemeMaking a baby shaped cake is a natural for this theme. You can easily do this with regular round baking pans and cupcakes. Make an 8-inch round cake, 9-inch round cake, and 16 cupcakes. The 8-inch round cake can be positioned for the head, the 9-inch round cake for the body and 3 to 4 cupcakes can be used to make each arm and leg. You can tint white frosting a flesh color by using a tiny amount of cooper icing color. You can also simply use a 9-inch round cake to make a baby's face. There are also pans shaped as baby rattles, buggies, and bottles that you can use.
It's a great experience, planning and hosting a shower. While the expectations may be high, the pressure need not be. To maintain that, inquire ever so discreetly with the mother-to-be and her sweet tooth preferences.
