Baby Shower Fun

Sunday Rob and I hosted a shower for our friends Jason & Jenn (who should most definitely be a pregnancy model- seriously)- and had a great time doing it... Rob and my sister were awesome sports who helped me with every single thing including my all completely homemade menu, favors and bunting projects. We had a great time and I am so excited to meet Baby Sperry when she gets here in November...but until then...let's take a look at the party.... true to form I stopped taking pictures midway through...so there are no photos of the main meal, dessert or the drink station...but hopefully you get the idea anyway :)

Like any good theme, I had bunting themed invites and that continued throughout the party...

The pre-dinner snack table included:
Veggies & Dip
Fruit & homemade fruit dip
Deviled Eggs
Cucumber Bites (cucumber slices with a delicious mixture of goat cheese, cream cheese, garlic & herbs piped on top)
and mini chocolate cupcakes with raspberry frosting

Dinner (not pictured- boo) was:
Turkey & Cheese Sliders
Ham & Cheese Sliders
Homemade Macaroni & Cheese
Salad with Goat Cheese & Dried Cranberries
and for dessert..... an angelfood cake trifle with strawberries & blueberries...

People chatted and had food and drinks..

The boys did a beer tasting in front of the football game :)
Jenn & Jason opened lots of adorable baby girl gifts
future bobcat!!

the dog showed off her dedication to the theme

and on the way out people grabbed homemade onesie cookies
Congratulations Jenn & Jason!! This is going to be one adored little girl... I can't wait to meet her!

You could be a party planner! Cute decorations! I really like the "onesie" sugar cookies..where did you get the cookie cutters? Our across the street neighbor is having a baby soon...thought it would make a cute baked gift!

aw thanks! The cookie cutters were from Michaels.. (came in a four pack with like a stroller, teddy bear and something else)- make sure you get a 40% coupon before you go! I hardly buy anything there without one :)
