A few weekends ago my friend Crissy and I threw our dear friend Erica a baby shower. We spent a long hours with wine planning the festivities, and settled on quite a few fun ideas I thought were necessary to share:
1. Funky invitation
Erica and her hubby are huge movie buffs, therefore we wanted the invitation to reflect that. Through a google image search and some editing in picnik, a movie poster-esque invite was created.
2. Fun Food
Rather than your typical cupcake and sweets treats, we opted for a savory fare including veggies/hummus, mini sandwiches and a mashed potato bar with all the fixins. Yes, you read that right, a mashed potato bar! We mashed up some yukon golds and had bacon bits, chives, gravy, carmelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, cheese and sour cream available to customize everyone’s bowls. We couldn’t forgo all sweets, however, and fresh fruit was also available.
3. Kissy Lips
Before she knew the sex of the baby I saw some adorable mustache straws on pinterest and planned to use the idea if she found out she was having a boy. When I found out that she was going to have a girl I decided to switch it up a bit and make kissy lips. I think they paired perfectly with our pink lemonaid mocktail.
Have you pinned and used any fun party ideas lately?
