Recently I was nominated to throw my sister a baby shower for her little boy. I immediately started combing Pinterest and the Internet for ideas and was in luck on several of them.
This punch came from http://www.brandiraae.com and was a big hit. All it needed was Blue Hawaiian Punch, Vanilla Ice Cream, Sprite and ducks! (You can check out her site if you need amounts of ingredients)
It was super easy to make. We just carried the supplies and punch bowl to the shower, and it took about 5 minutes to put together. We added a ladle and cups to and it was an instant success. I highly recommend this for your next shower.
Another great idea came from ourdelightfulhome.blogspot.com which is now a dead site. However, using the picture, we were able to figure out this awesome little snack. We used large pretzel rods, white candy melts, blue sprinkles, ribbon and spoon bags (found in the cake decorating aisle).
First, we laid out parchment paper and poured the blue sprinkles over the middle. Next, we melted the candy melts and used a spatula to spread the melted candy over the pretzel. Before it had time to harden, we rolled the pretzel in the blue sprinkles. Once hardened, we slid the pretzel into the bag, added a ribbon and had a nice little neat snack!
If you notice in that last picture, the cute little Chex Mix Buddies treat….. That idea came from ediblecrafts.craftgossip.com and used cute little blue polka dot cupcake liners that I bought from Party City or from Amazon here. All we did was add some Chex Mix Buddies and blue Sixlets and we had a great little snack and decoration.
This idea pictured on the left came from key ingredient. com (Official recipe is linked on their site above.) These deviled eggs were made like you would normally make them, but the egg white was cut down and off the side to create a baby carriage. Cute little Vienna Sausages were added for the faces.
The recipe called for chocolate sprinkles for the eyes but I had forgotten to pick some up at the store so instead I used an edible marker to draw the eyes on. If I did it again, I would definitely try the sprinkles. The marker ran a little and made some small alien looking babies.
Overall, I would definitely use all 3 of these recipes if I found myself needing to throw another shower.
I will be adding more Shower Pics and Ideas in the next couple of days. If you would like to see more ideas from this shower, they can be found in the menu at the top under birthday parties, boy baby shower. Or just click here!
