Life: Baby Shower Re-cap


The baby shower was great this weekend and I wanted to share with you a few photos of the event.  When I was looking through the photos I realized that I forgot to take a picture of the mini cheesecakes I made for the mommy to be.  I used my go to recipe for cheesecake that I previously posted here since that was the recipe the new mommy to be requested.  I put them in a cupcake tray with baby feet cupcake liners. I used the water bath and kept the same temperature for about half and hour.  I decorated them with a bit of whipped cream and a small teddy bear pick and some confetti candy.  I hope you were able to visualize it and I promise next time I'll make sure to take more photos.
If I hadn't mentioned it before it's a girl and everyone is extremely excited!
The mommy to be wanted fresh flowers on the tables. Her father-in-law bought a few bouquets at Trader Joe's we separated them and arranged the flowers in bases they purchased at the Dollar Tree Store.  They turned out beautiful.
The mommy to be picked up these pink pacifiers for her party favors at the flea mart.  You never know where you can find a great looking party favor. 
The baby shower was held at a community center that her neighbor had access to.  The family gave a down payment which was then returned upon leaving the location spotless.  We went early in the morning to decorate the community center and transform it into a cute enough baby space. 
We set two tables as the main focal point.  One was for the parents to be and the other one for the gifts the guests brought.  All the decorations and prizes for the contestants were purchased in the Dollar Tree Store.  You don't have to spend a lot of money to have a nice baby shower.
We played several fun games including this traditional one.  For those you that might not be familiar with it I'll attempt to explain it.  You blind fold someone give them a big spoon and a plate.  They place the plate on their head and they attempt to pick up cotton balls with the spoon.  The contestants only have a few tries to do it.  
Another game we played was one that I had never heard of.  It mainly consisted of picking out a baby item's name out of a bag and matching it with someone that pulled out the exact same thing.  When both people find each other they sit down. The last two people standing get kicked out.  You do this until you only have two people left. It might sound confusing but it sure was fun. Just look at people's expressions. 
Congrats to the mommy to be and my cousin.  They make such a beautiful couple.  We are all excited and can't wait to welcome a new baby into our family.
