Amy's Shower

We had fun putting on Amy's baby shower this past weekend. A huge thanks has to go out to Melissa for helping with the shower and providing the chocolate fountain and vibrant pink chocolate to go with the party theme. A big thanks to my honey for helping with the shower and putting up with me the days prior and another thank you for Bethany and again Melissa hanging out at my house a couple of times to make the pom poms for the shower. All in All I would say it was a success.

Party colors were pink and white. Decorations consisted of the hanging pom poms, the pink and white tree (can't wait to take that one down), and the light pink roses.

For the food we had ham and cream cheese wraps, veggie bars, fruit salad, pink grapefruit, mini tortilla cups with artichoke dip, and chicken strips on a stick with almond sauce. The dessert was the pink chocolate fountain with fun goodies to dip in like rice crispy treats, angle food cake, strawberries, cream puffs, etc. We had a warm mulling spice drink and lemon water for liquids. Many who came appreciated what we had and took some home to their families.

For a game we played gift bingo while Amy opened her gifts and had some great candles and spa gifts.

The party favors had a little handmade glass magnet and poem (that you can read when you enlarge the collage picture), that went with the lullaby theme.
