Happy Friday friends! How is it the weekend before Christmas Eve?! This month (and year) is flying by. This weekend we’re heading to ZooLights and a couple of holiday parties.
Last weekend, my friends Christina, Miki, and I hosted a baby shower for our friend Tammy. She and her husband, Natan, are expecting a baby boy in February!
Per the mama-to-be’s wishes, she wanted a loose vintage train theme for the shower. We decided to have the shower from 11am – 1pm.
Christina was in charge of the decorations and she did such a good job finding her crafty side. 🙂
Yours truly was in charge of the party favors and I knew little bottles of wine would please the crowd.
I was also in charge of the beverages. In keeping with our menu (which you’ll see below), I decided the alcoholic beverages would be wine (red & white), and the non-alcoholic drinks would be sparkling cider and water.
And now for the show-stopper of the shower – THE MENU. Miki did such a wonderful job of choosing the menu. We each bought various ingredients pertaining to the menu and we all pitched in with the cooking. There was a lot!
- Baked brie w/ crackers and fruit (appetizer)
- Candied Pecans (appetizer)
- Lasagna Rolls
- Pasta and Sausage (with a red sauce)
- Brocoli and Alfredo Shells
- A GF option (red sauce w/ chicken pasta)
- Garlic Bread
- Chocolate Lava Cupcakes (GF, dessert)
- Strawberry Lemon Cupcakes (dessert)
I think it’s safe to say everyone loved the food spread!
We played a couple of games (Guess the Celebrity Baby Name and Guess Which Questions are True About Pregnancy and the Birth Process). I will say I have been to my fair share of baby showers (including my own) and I had never played the second game. It was very interesting!
People could also decorate onesies for Baby Boy Cohen if they wanted.
Then it was time for presents!
Congrats Tammy and Natan! We can’t wait to meet you Baby Boy Cohen!
Have a great weekend!
What are your plans for this weekend?
