The shower was very successful!! We all had a great time!! Please enjoy these pictures and recipes! Me, Kelly and my Mom! While everyone arrived, we served a couple appetizers, "jungle punch" and pink champagne with blueberries! Here is the recipe for our jungle punch that was delicious!!
Here is the first guessing game we played while everyone mingled during appetizers. Guess how many m & m's are in the bottle. The person closest won a prize. This is a nice game to do while people are first coming in and can write their guess at their own leisure.
We played a memory game next. We loaded a tray with a bunch of baby items and covered it with a sheet. Everyone got a piece of paper and a pen. We took the sheet of the tray for about 1 minute and then covered it again. Everyone had to write down all the items they remembered on the tray. The person who got the most won a prize!
Here is Kelly showing off her beautiful belly (in a adorable dress from 'pea in the pod') in our next game! Everyone got a ball of yarn and had to cut a piece they thought perfectly measured her belly. Here is a picture of everyone measuring!
We served three kinds of sandwiches. From top to bottom we made: cucumber, watercress on wheat, turkey and cranberry on potato bread, chicken salad on sourdough and cheese puffs. Finger sandwiches are great for luncheons! Everyone loves them and you don't need utensils!
I made a caprese inspired salad. I just used mixed greens, chopped basil, cherry tomatoes and small mozzarella balls! I dressed it in a homemade balsamic dressing, but you can make your own or use store bought. Here is a picture of the orzo salad, chicken curry salad and zucchini rolls
You are going to iron on the heat n' bond to the fabric character then with the scissors cut it out. Then iron on the character to the onesie. Place the cardboard in the onsie. (so it doesn't bleed through!) And paint around the character and the rest of the onsie.
I made some mini cupcakes in red velvet and carrot cake! A triple chocolate bundt cake! : ) And those are free form cheesecake parfaits with fresh fruit! So yummy!!! Here is the recipe.
