Make either this baby blue punch or the pretty pink punch for a cute addition to any baby shower. Only a few ingredients needed for each one!
I hosted a baby shower for my sister-in-law and another lady in our church. One is having a boy and one a girl, so we did a pink and blue theme. I think that’s the easiest possible theme to work with 🙂 I scoured Pinterest and settled on a pretty blue punch and a delicious pink punch. They both looked so great on the party table!
Baby Blue Party Punch
This punch is so pretty and very refreshing. It’s just Blue Hawaiian Punch and Lemonade-it doesn’t get much easier than that!
It’s nice to have a beverage dispenser to show off the beautiful color! I like this dispenser from Amazon because it’s large enough and it includes a stand which means you don’t have to balance the punch on the edge of a table or counter.
It’s also a nice break from a bowl-style punch usually made with ice cream, like this pink punch:
Pretty in Pink Punch
This pretty bowl (find a similar glass punch bowl here) of punch didn’t last through the night. Depending on which brand of cranberry juice, it can be a little more red than pink, except the foam. You can adjust the color by adding more lemon lime soda, though! Either way, it was super yummy! I’ll go for anything with sherbet in it! Don’t skimp on the berries-it’s what makes the punch!
Perfect for baby showers, these blue and pink punch recipes are delicious and beautiful!
- 1 part Blue Hawaiian Punch
- 1 part Lemonade
- 1 2 liter lemon lime soda
- 1 64 oz cranberry juice
- 1 quart raspberry sherbet
- 1 12 oz bag frozen raspberries
Add blue punch to a large beverage dispenser
Fill the rest of the way with an equal amount of lemonade and stir. If you want a darker blue color, rather than the "Tiffany" blue color, use more punch than lemonade.
Start with lemon lime soda in a large punch bowl
Add cranberry juice-use less if you want a little bit lighter pink color and more foam
Add sherbet to the bowl and stir around gently
Top with frozen raspberries
Gently stir and serve immediately
I do believe it was a lovely night and everyone enjoyed themselves. It was so nice to sit and visit with one another without chasing kids around the place 🙂 And I’m really looking forward to welcoming another nephew into our family!
