Today we’re all about FOOD and CELEBRATION! 11 amazing party recipes to try for your next event, shower, or celebration! These 11 party recipes that are full of flavor, fun, simple to make, and mouth watering delicious!
So much to celebrate today that it makes my heart burst! No really, like so much goodness flowing throughout the post. But first, let me explain.
You see, today we’re celebrating my friend Michelle and her new addition to the family. A Virtual baby shower in her honor! But this shower is more like a party, because the little life she welcomed into this world is need of both SHOWER and PARTY status. Yes, her son is that cute and she is that amazing! If you haven’t checked out Michelle’s amazing nourishing recipes, go do so NOW! ok?
Back to my point. PARTIES! Celebrations! Well, I have to be honest. I am not that great at organizing showers or parties, unless I’m in charge of food. That I can do. All the other crafts and logistics I usually leave to the super crafty Martha like friends. Haha, you all know who you are.
But today’s post is all about the FOOD! A Sea themed shower and party menu! 11 amazing party recipes by 11 amazing food bloggers, that have to do with seafood, or sea themed, or go well with seafood. Make sense?
Which is why my paleo sugar cookies (that look like a SAND DOLLAR) are part of the dessert. My only craftiness. Haha.
Let’s get to the menu and then celebrate more with a HUGE SEAFOOD giveaway by SIZZLEFISH at the end.

My sister in law does a seafood themed Christmas eve dinner – I HAVE to show her this menu! Cheesy shrimp polenta bites? Heck yeah!

What a delicious-looking menu 🙂 planning for a party like that sounds like so much fun 🙂
For my cousin’s baby shower years ago, she had the men chug beer out of baby bottles as a game. It was hilarious and kind of odd-looking haha.
The menu for the baby shower looks amazing. It makes me want to host a sea themed dinner party. I especially love the smoked salmon and mango salsa cups!

Those cookies look amazing! And I love that you did a sea theme. I will have to share photos of Xander’s nursery soon– it’s coming together (slowly)! I thought I would have so much time during my maternity leave to work on it. HA! That’s apparently not what maternity leave is for 🙂
I”m so glad! and lots of love to you and xander
