The art of throwing a classy baby shower

November 23, 2022Lauren Windle

This baby shower for 50 was beautiful, fresh and classy. Held in the soon-to-be grandparents’ lovely home, Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering was asked to cater a bevy of healthy, nutritious, and gourmet foods to appeal to a wide range of tastes.

We were happy to oblige. Here’s the interesting and contemporary menu we served:

Beginning with butler-passed hors d'oeuvres:

  • Mini Chicken Creole Crepes Tied with a Chive
  • Mini Polenta Cake with Wild Mushroom duxelle
  • Vegetable Spring Roll with Sweet Chili Sauce Crab Cake with Avocado Cream

There was also a generous portion of Crab and Artichoke Dip with Flatbreads on the kitchen island.

In the dining room, Jacquie’s team set up:

  • Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail with Fresh Lemon and Remoulade Sauce
  • Sliced Aged Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish Cream served with Mini House Made Soft Rolls
  • Pistachio Crusted New Zealand Lamb Chops
  • Cured King Ora Salmon with Fresh Dill, Creme Fraiche, Fresh Lemon Capers, Melba Toasts with Lemon, Dill Cream Sauce
  • Dauphennoise Potatoes cut into Rounds, displayed on silver griddle
  • Roasted Vegetables including Brussel Sprouts, Rhutabaga, Parsnip, Turnip, Asparagus, and Portabello Mushrooms
  • Chimichurri, Arugula and Lemon Dip, Green Olive Tappanade
  • Multi-Colored Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes with Italian Olive Oil, Black Sea Salt and Fresh Basil

We wouldn’t want any type of party to make do without a sweet dollop of desserts! So – we set out

  • House Made Chocolate Truffles
  • Mini Apple Tarts
  • Mini Lemon Curd Squares
  • Mini Cheesecake
  • Chocolate Covered Strawberries

There truly was something for everyone – from the soon-to-be-mom to the proud grandparents, friends and family.
