My Life Adventures, Travel Experiences and Reflections

Tuesday

Ahoy! It's A Boy!

The Party-Planner in me came out in full swing a couple of weeks ago, when I had the pleasure of throwing a nautical-themed baby shower for my friend, Faye and her husband, Carl.

Anyone who knows me, knows that the first thing I do when planning a party is to coordinate a "Party-Planning Committee". Committee Meetings are a great excuse to get together with friends and decide who would like to do or bring what. It was also where it was decided that (as 98% of the guests were not pregnant) spiked and un-spiked beverages would be served. 
 
An estimated 45 guests were in attendance.

Food included chicken wings, fruit salad, hawaiian roll hot ham sandwiches, cheese dip,  cake and ice cream - all provided by the committee members.

In keeping with the new arrival's nursery, the color scheme was navy blue and green. 
Table was covered in two layers of navy - glittering twinkle lights between the fabric mimicking the ocean.

OMG. The Cake. Red Velvet Bundt with Cream Cheese Frosting.

I feel certain that without the enthusiasm and participation of my fellow party-planners, Faye & Carl's Baby Shower would not have been the success that it was. Big thanks to ...
