What should I serve at a Baby shower afternoon tea?!

Question: What should I serve at a Baby shower afternoon tea!?
What should I serve at a Baby shower afternoon tea!? Please give me specific suggestion such as the type of cake or sandwich instead of just the general term!. I need things that are small, easy to make and able to be eaten easily!. If you could also give me suggestions of what to serve as drinks that would be great!. Any other tips are greatly appreciated!. Thanks in advance!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Nice vegetable, cheese and rolled meat trays would be great!.
Simple finger sandwiches with just easy things like cream cheese, lettuce and a slice of deli meat on whole wheat and white breads!. Mini egg sandwiches, peanut butter, tuna and other simple cheap fillings like this would be great!.
A recipe for a GREAT wrap that I've had at many different showers that EVERYBODY raves over is:
White and Whole wheat tortillas
Cream Cheese
Dried Cranberries (think Crasins by Oceanspray)
Chopped Green onion

Spread cream cheese on the wrap and sprinkle the cranberries and green onions ontop!. Cover with lettuce and roll!. Cut in halves or thirds to make them fit into the finger sandwich theme!.

A fruit tray with maybe some chocolate dip would be great and simple!.

For cake, a nice angel's food cake with a little cool whip and either strawberries or raspberries would be a nice light satisfying cake!.

You could make a nice punch with fruit punch (not much, you just want a slight hint of flavour) mixed with gingerale!. A few pomegratate seeds or raspberry pieces floating in it would be great! If theres no alcohol in it then everybody can enjoy it!.

Have fun and congrats to the expecting mother!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Do you want to do "usual"!? How many are coming!? One of the best showers we did (although it was a wedding one) - was "make your own shortcake" - we had slices of pound cake(which you can buy in the bakery section of grocery store) and fresh fruit cut up in pretty glass bowls (we had strawberries, blue berries and peaches) - and whipped cream!. (I whipped cream from scratch-but you can do the canned kind or cool whip(although I'd put it in a pretty bowl) - We had iced tea (since it was summer), coffee, and water!. And everyone had a great time!. You wouldn't believe how many people said it was different and that they enjoyed it!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

cucumber sandwiches super easy

First slice up a couple cucumbers, you can make it look fancy by taking a vegetable peeler and slice stripes lengthwise down the cuke before slicing it!. Then make uniform slices about 1/4" thick!.

For bread, I usually use a baguette and slice it thin, or you can buy pre-sliced cocktail bread its a small square loaf!. You can use the whipped cream cheese, I like the garden herb, and spread a little on each slice then top with a cuke slice!. Sprinkle dill on top of the sandwiches when done!. They're meant to be open faced, and easy to eat with one or two bites!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Cucumber sandwiches(cream cheese and cuc!. on white bread w/ no crust) You could also ask the mom to be some of her favorite cravings she's had and make up appetizers!.(like watermelon wrapped in prosciutto!?) Or you could theme the food around her cravings!. Potstickers, fruit kabobs, salads, antipasto, artichoke and spinach dip served with baguette of bread!. Hope this gives you a few more alternatives!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
