Drinks you could just have soft drinks, non alcoholic punch.
Foods; Mini quiches, fruit kebabs, party pies and sausage rolls, frankfurts, mini spring rolls, cake pops, cupcakes, slices, cheese and dip platters with crackers and cabonossi, damper dip.
That's all I can remember! You could always do one of these

Little sandwiches, sausage rolls, mini quiches, spring rolls and other yum cha stuff. Biscuits, cheese and dip etc.
If you want themed stuff, I made cupcakes for a gf's baby shower and put rattles on top made out of the white coconut Ferrero things and wrapping a ribbon around a skewer stick thing. Paddle pop sticks would work just as well

zucchini and haloumi fritters
mini pikelets topped with jam and cream
mini tarts filled with custard and fruit or chocolate and fruit
fresh fruit platter
sugar cookies decorated like rattle, baby onesie, pram, stork etc
The ones I have been too have served food much like you would receive/find at a high tea

I think finger foods work best for a baby shower.
Savoury - mini sandwiches, party pies, sausage rolls, cob loaf, zucchini slice, chicken wings/shish kebabs, vegie sticks and dips, sushi rolls.
Sweet - can match food to colour theme of shower if you are having one. Pink/blue cupcakes, jelly cups, pikelets, cake pops, fruit platter with chocolate dip

Oh gosh toooo much! Are you doing it yourself, or do you have family helping? I put on dinner once a month for 18, and have catered parties since I was 16.
Choose one thing, and do it spectacularly.
One tea and coffee station, and watch it be left totally untouched while the champagne runs out.
One make your own sandwich selection, or you're in WA - Miss Mauds have the best, most dollar value sandwich selection that you can't make yourself for the price. (I don't and have never worked for them but ordered sandwiches for 20 years, they're good). If it's a Sunday you have to pick it up from the city store, they won't prepare yesterday to pick up today. Totally up there. Double your order of smoked salmon bagels.
One cake to cut and share with a little speech.
In all honesty, by the time everyone chases around for 20 different finger foods, heat them up, put a sauce in a bowl - unless you have a few aunties/sisters bringing a plate and helping you'll do your head in creating it all. It's about fun and sisterhood, don't go crazy for the food. Everyone will go home for dinner just the same.
Best of luck!
