Writing about food and warm n cozy baby shower menu ideas seemed like a good topic today since we are smack dab in the middle of the Artic Express (read: it's FREEZING)! When the weather outside is frightful, there's nothing like walking into a warm and welcoming home that smells like Heaven.

And you don't have to be a gourmet cook or hire a fancy catering service to have your baby shower venue smelling like a dream come true. Comfort food is always appreciated, SO easy to make and there's an added bonus. Most of the recipes have ingredients that are staples in any kitchen's cupboard which leaves more of your budget available for buying baby shower gifts and party decorations!

The stars of my warm n cozy baby shower menu ideas are none other than grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup and some homemade Danish Wedding cookies. If you were expecting a list of foods that was just a bit more exciting you should know that
I didn't just pull this winning combination out of my hat or my need for something easy to cook for supper. I went to a friend's shower yesterday and on the food table, she had star shaped sandwiches, two tureens full of soup and plates of the most delicious cookies ever!

Her decorations were homemade paper snowflakes and huge, fluffy balls that she had made out of coffee filters. They looked a lot like the tissue paper balls that Martha Stewart inspired everybody to make only she said that the coffee filters were much easier to manage with the only drawback being that you didn't have the color choices that you have using tissue paper.
