I was having a baby shower this weekend for my brother’s fiancé, whom is expecting their daughter soon. I need some food ideas! Originally I was planning on keeping it small and intimate. She decided to go an invite to others. I posted I would serve a light dinner. I was planning on doing a meat and cheese tray with crackers, veggies, and some different type of dips with bread/crackers. The invite originally was for 15 or so people. This turned into 25 people+ (kids, husbands, and others) so serving those items may not go as far for the money. My husband mentioned chili since it’s going to be a chilly weekend. What else can I serve that will serve a lot of people without spending a ton. I would like to spend under $65 if possible but not a must. Drinks? Food? Snacks?
I do chili dogs with a topping bar for family bdays sometimes.

I had my shower in November. We did soup, salad and bread. We had like 5 different soups, but I had multiple people doing the shower for me so they all made a soup. It was delicious.
See if some family could bring a dish. Like you have the main dish and they could bring the sides. One could bring chips, someone else could bring the veggies, someone could bring a fruit tray… that sort of thing.
