We served chicken salad croissants (a baby shower staple!), fruit, pita chips, and some delicious cake from Publix. Publix totally knows how to do cake!
We also put together a raspberry lemonade punch. I used a can of frozen pink lemonade, a 2-liter of Sprite and a carton of raspberry sherbet. It actually tasted pretty darn good for my first time making punch!
I mixed together the frozen pink lemonade with water, according to the package instructions. Then added the 2-liter bottle of Sprite to the pink lemonade, in a large pitcher. Once combined, I poured half of the lemonade/soda mixture into a large punch bowl. Then, I scooped out half of the sherbet and added to the punch bowl. Give it a good stir and you're good to go! As people drink the punch, feel free to add in your other half of lemonade/soda mixture and more sherbet.
Baby Alice got some super cute outfits, but she will also have a handmade quilt from me! I used a tutorial I found on Pinterest for this triangle baby quilt. I got all the appropriate ohh's and ahh's over it. Score! (That's me to the right.)
The last element of the baby shower I helped throw together was a baby trivia game. Let me tell you, it was super fun! No lame shower games here! I wanted a competitive style game, as the mom-to-be loves a challenge. I searched around and put together my own version of "Are you smarter than our mom-to-be?". It was hilarious to watch the women at the shower (ladies of all ages and life stages) fight over and laugh over what the correct answers were.
