A solid main course can be tough to find for a baby shower. Most of the time for baby showers your main course needs to be both light and a crowd pleaser. This Deli-Style Cranberry Chicken Salad is the bees knees, and everyone will be asking you for the recipe. This recipe is my favorite way to make chicken salad including lighter on the mayo and flavored mildly. Pine nuts and celery give this salad a nice crunch, which a good chicken salad sandwich needs. The addition of cranberry is brilliant for a fruity twist. I want to make one of these right now!

Pink Lemonade Popcorn
This recipe for Pink Lemonade Popcorn is super adorable for the next baby shower you’re hosting! Popcorn makes a great snack to place either in various snacky bowls around the room, but also displays nicely on a table of other nibbles. This colored melting chocolate with added pink lemonade flavor is perfect for a girl, but you could also easily change this to a blue drink mix or even green for a unisex shower. All you have to do is change the color of your sprinkles and chocolate to fit your theme. This popcorn also works easily with a gender neutral baby shower. Yum!
Brigadeiros Brazilian Chocolate Fudge Balls
I often am looking for a crafty, sweet treat for a baby shower that looks fancy on the table but isn’t too hard to make. These Brigadeiros also known as Brazilian Chocolate Fudge-Balls are perfect! You can customize the outside to be cutesy with colorful sprinkles or eloquent with chopped nuts or a white chocolate drizzle. Best of all, you can make these Brigadeiros further in advance of your party by freezing them. I think you could also pair these with a cute baby shower cake for a lovely dessert table.
