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.
