Our Baby Daisie is due next month, this is the Shower my husband & I hosted. Yes, we had our own because this is baby #4 and wanted to celebrate and not burden anyone with having one for us. It was a great time, fun games, great lunchtime foods & perfect Southern California Weather - a cool 75 degrees! :D Beautiful day! We are so fortunate to have such wonderful Friends & Family <3
Cherry, Lemon & Butter cream frosted cupcakes with Daisy fondant cutouts, Jumbo (fist-sized) Marshmallows dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with pink sugar, heart shaped palmiers, yellow white & milk chocolate dipped strawberries with pink sugar [sugar sugar & more sugar], goldfish, frosted pink & white animal cookies, green grapes and applesauce squeezable pouches for kids.
Activities / Games
*SPIT THE PACIFIER GAME* Who spits the pacifier furthest, perfect game for the macho men (men only)! *WHAT'S IN THE BAG? GAME* 8 paper bags, sealed and numbered. Guests number their paper & write their guesses. Inside the bags, I had 1. Qtip 2. baby mittens 3. bib 4. pregnancy test 5. digital thermometer 6. trial size baby lotion 7. trial size baby oil 8. pacifier. the pregnancy test was the tough one! :D *GUESS THE BELLY SIZE GAME* pass the ribbon around and tell everyone, "guess the belly size" and they all automatically think it's for MY belly but it was for Daddy's belly. SOOO funny! *WHAT'S IN THE JAR? GAME* a large jar full of baby items, daddy walks around and lets everyone get a look and then they have to remember & write down what they saw.
unknown, somewhere between 0-500. Since i made pretty much every thing by hand, including food, favors, decorations, Party rentals (tables & chairs), prizes, champagne, beer.
Diaper shaped paper napkins with a fortune cookie & a chocolate mint inside, tag read, "Thank you for sharing this moMINT with us, we are so FORTUNate" - Susie & Carlos... as well as all of the handmade daisy pens & vase centerpieces.
