Trunks Up Shower: The Food and Games
We're continuing the Trunks Up shower wrap-up with the food and games. Let's get to it!
I made straw flags because Taya(the mom-to-be and obsessive event planner, remember? LOL) really loves striped straws, lol:
We created water bottle labels and used real baby nipples on top of water bottles to resemble baby bottles:
Individual servings of peach yogurt parfaits:
The grazing station:
The food buffet was brunch-themed with fried chicken, mini pancakes, fresh waffles, and so much more.
Napkin diapers(tutorial coming soon) held pretzels and nuts:
Games and Activities
Games were printed and placed at each seat:
I brought Munch with me so I needed something to keep the little ones occupied. I was so excited to find coloring pages at The Dollar Tree. I was even MORE excited that they were elephant-themed. Boy, did the kids enjoy coloring:
We played loads of fun games, had a great brunch menu and fabulous decor.
At the end of the shower, I informed everyone of Taya's request to have guests arrive and ask, "WHO HIRED MARTHA STEWART?" I had everyone, in unison, loudly ask,
"WHO HIRED MARTHA STEWART?!"
Taya could not hold her smile; she was MORE than pleased with everything and we ALL knew it! I just hope she realized those who care came through NOT because she made us feel like we had to but because we WANTED to.
I leave you with a pic taken just before we cut the cake:
Now, my schedule was crazy! 2 back-to-back weddings, then this shower PLUS, the weekend after this event, I had mom's 50th birthday party and I still had SO much to do for that!
I'm tired just thinking about it... But, I lived to tell the story and I'm excited to share the details with all of you:)
Well, right after we talk about a Thanksgiving craft and a few quick dessert recipes for the holiday. I don't want to sell my beloved mommy short in her birthday post, ya know?
Pardon me? What did you say about my mama?!
O...OK. I thought I heard something else... You don't want to miss that event's rundown so stay tuned for another fabulous party!!!
