    Cute themed food. You know what's cute? Go to Dunkin Donuts and buy a box of donuts. Wash some pacifiers and put them in the holes of the donuts. You can find little sprinkles that look like eyes at walmart. You end up with super cute donuts that like babies haha

    Whatever you feel like making and whatever you can afford. And then there is cake.

    Maybe a selection of finger foods?  You could have mini muffins iced with coloured icing [maybe pertaining to the baby's gender]?.

    Caprese, trust me, centered around brunch with a lot of bagels and breads and fruit and vegetables.  Maybe a pasta salad or fruit salad or regular salads.  Definitely not a turducken, and probably not anything improved by adding bacon.  Maybe try a trifle or two or three for the dessert.  I toy with the notion of becoming a caterer and that's the direction I would start in for a baby shower - caprese and trifles, bagels and brunch.  Though your best bet is to consult someone who does baby showers and let the mother or whomever choose from a list of dishes that person has.  Any caterer who has a clue what they are doing and who takes it serious should be able to present you with a list of dishes for you to choose from.

    Usually the food goes with the theme if there is one.

    You can serve whatever you want, but since so much is going on, best to serve a light fare and snacks, things like that. Many people will want to be up, talking with other people, playing games, opening gifts, so a sit down affair would be too expensive and inconvenient. Rent a long table, or borrow one or something, and set out things buffet style. You can do tea sandwiches, chips and dip, fresh fruit, pasta salad, or you can do seasonal dishes, depending on when it is. You CAN do alcohol if you want to, just make sure you have something the mama-to-be can drink :)
