We held the shower at 11 AM and served brunch, because who doesn't love brunch food?! To keep it simple and low stress, we served a combination of store-bought and homemade items.
The menu included:
|Mini chicken and waffles with syrup (Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets and mini frozen waffles)|
|Pigs in a blanket and mini quiches|
|Donut hole skewers|
|Peanut butter and pretzel truffles, chocolate chip cookie dough truffles, and oatmeal cookies|
|A juice-based punch served in mason jars with striped paper straws|
|A coffee bar with a variety of flavored creamers|
Instead of a guest sign-in sheet, we asked each guest to self-address an envelope so that the new mom would have pre-addressed envelopes for her thank you notes.
Each guest also filled out a card with their wishes for baby Jake.
Before Erin opened gifts, we passed out bingo cards; each guest filled out the squares of the bingo card with baby gifts they thought Erin would receive. The first guest to get a bingo based on the gifts Erin got won a Godiva chocolate gift basket.
We had such a great time celebrating baby Jake and can't wait for his arrival!
