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!

Drink Station

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, 


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!!!

Goodwill Finds: The Magnolia Wreath

Happy Friday, Islanders. I wanted to share a thrifty find from a while back.  Ugh, I love my local Goodwill Outlet.  Oh, and yes, you saw ...
