I didn't think to serve it when I hosted my friends baby shower and I've only been to one where it was served and I was shocked the mum to be was the one who opened it and was drinking.
I wouldn't really want it at my own shower as I'm not drinking and am the guest of honour so to speak. I don't mind don't drinking atm and have been to functions where alcohol was offered since pregnant that doesn't bother me but at my shower I would prefer to only have the non alcoholic option. I'll have to get some recipes
The bilinies sound delish
I'm hoping my guest don't expect it though
I don't like alcohol served at christenings or kids bdays either however we had wine and champaign at dd baptism because my inlaws hosted. We have decided to have newbies baptism after lunch at our local pub because the function beer garden is awesome and the bistro is a great restaurant and there is a kids play area. However I'm not putting a bar tab on so if people want to drink let them pay for it and hopefully this will deter people getting plastered and if they do I'll ask them to leave

I guess it depends on the type of shower. Most I go to are afternoon tea and a few have had champagne but I don't really think its the 'norm'. A few I've been to which are more like mother blessings, we all have dinner together do there is usually wine available.

I've been to non alcoholic and also alcoholic. I don't think it's something that should be expected (like at a wedding) but definitely not odd to have an alco punch and some glasses of wine. I'd be concerned if there were jelly shots
