Party Recap

We wanted Heather's baby shower to be modern with a touch of silly. Color was a must. Our brother-in-law was kind enough to clear our his family room to give us a great party space (I even made him take down the curtains). In the end, the party was the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of baby Crew.

Party Highlights

  • What People Ate

    The menu was kept pretty simple...wraps & salads. We didn't want to have the oven on with that many people in the house (we are in Florida afterall). The Mommy-to-be had been craving chicken salad from a local deli so we let them do the catering.

  • What People Drank

    Just because the guest of honor couldn't drink, didn't stop the rest of us. Red and white wines were served along with a champagne punch. For non-alcoholic options, there was a sherbet preggers punch and a of selection of "The Pop Shoppe" soda pops which went great with our circus theme.

  • Desserts

    The dessert table included a variety of cupcakes, whoopie pies, macaroons, cake & oreo pops and animal crackers. The centerpieces doubled as cotton candy holders (cotton candy tip - keep it wrapped up. I learned the hard way how quickly it drys out).

  • Party Favors

    We used red & white striped cupcake boxes from Oriental Trading to send everyone home with a treat.

  • Activities / Games

    For one of the games, we staged a relay race using a child's shape sorter toy. After a few cocktails, it wasn't as easy as some had remembered.

  • Funniest Moment

    Our Photo Booth provided a lot of silly shots that quickly spread through various social media sites.
