It’s a little hard to believe how soon baby will be here! Only a few more days until her due date, and even though she could be a week or two late, it’s still really soon.
A few months ago, some super sweet blogger friends threw a virtual baby shower for me and two other bloggers, Natalie from Tastes Lovely and Izzy from She Likes Food. Natalie had her adorable baby boy Josh at the end of last year, and Izzy is due in a couple months with her own little boy! It was such a fun surprise! The theme was bite-sized foods and they all made yummy looking appetizers and desserts.
I love these ladies and was so thankful for the sweet gesture. So in honor of baby girl almost being here, I thought I’d share their creations with you. These treats are all perfect for a baby shower, but really they’re awesome for any kind of party or get-together!

I had SO much fun in helping throw your virtual baby shower! I can’t believe your baby girl will be here soon! So exciting, Jess! Can’t wait to see pictures! And I love this roundup, everything looks SO good!
Annie @ The Garlic Diaries says
I love this! My friend and I are throwing a bridal shower in a few months, and we were having a surprisingly difficult time coming up with fun shower food. This all looks amazing! Pinned :).
Alyssa @ My Sequined Life says
I can’t believe your little girl will be here so soon!!! This was such a fun ‘virtual’ baby shower to be a part of. I want all of these apps and desserts!
These are perfect for a baby shower. And they’re so cute. They all look yummy, but of course with my sweet tooth I’m drawn to the desserts. The Bailey’s S’mores mouse cups and strawberry shortcake bread are definitely two that I need to remember.
I can’t wait to hear about the birth of your baby girl, Jess! I wish we could celebrate in person, but until then I will crave all of this delicious food!
