Baby Shower Salad Bar

How to make a salad bar?

Setting up a salad bar at your shower allows guests to create their own custom-made meal. This easy idea will satisfy the pickiest of guests!

This menu idea is great when combined with the idea to create a menu from mom’s name. Choose salad toppings to spell out your honoree’s name!

My thoughts:

This light menu idea is perfect for the not-so-light nine months pregnant baby shower.
