It’s baby shower day!!!

My lovely friend, Kendra, is expecting her 3rd baby in about 6 weeks!!! Little Masen Brock will be joining the family soon so we had to have a party for him!  Check out the table.  Everything was so cute.  Our theme was “She’s about to pop!” So we had two lollipop bouquets, cake pops, rice krispie pops, marshmallow pops, lime popsicle punch, ice cream pop punch, white chocolate popcorn, fruit pops with white chocolate fondue, chicken salad sandwiches and that too cute cake!

Seriously, look at that cake!  It is soooo perfect for a baby shower!

Look at his pennant bunting with his name.  Kendra took it home to hang above his crib.  🙂

We (the hostesses) decided on a blue/white/green color scheme and it was perfect!  I got the idea for the upside down balloon bouquet from pinterest.

We hung a bunch above the bar too.

This was a super cute idea that one of the hostesses had seen at another shower…We had a gift bag with each of the letters of the baby’s name.  Each bag was filled with a baby related item that started with the letter on the bag.  Then each guest had to write down their guesses of what they thought was in each bag.  There were some cute and clever things in the bags–some toys, a book, ointment, maxi pads :).  I think my favorite was a kit for Kendra to take to the hospital that had deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, etc.  How great is that?!  She just has to toss it in her hospital bag–perfect.

ha!  did you notice anything missing?  how about a picture of the guest of honor?!  Yep, I got these taken right after we finished setting up and then never picked up the camera again.  I’m gonna have to snatch a pic of Kendra from one of the other ladies and put it up on here.  Cuz she is just too stinkin’ cute!
Oh, and I have a recipe for you…
Ice Cream Pop Punch
1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream
1/2 gallon of chocolate ice cream
1 gallon of whole milk
2 cups of brewed coffee
1 cup of sugar
Brew your coffee (I actually brewed a full pot and then poured the 2 cups I needed into a measuring cup to cool).  Once your coffee is brewed, pour it into a LARGE measuring cup.  Mix the 1c of sugar into the hot coffee and stir it to disolve.  Then leave coffee to cool.   Take ice creams out of freezer 30 to 45 minutes before serving.  In a punch bowl, place both 1/2 gallons of ice cream, the 2c of breweed coffee, and then fill with milk.  Now, the recipe called for an entire gallon of milk but I didn’t use the whole gallon—I think I used a little more then half, maybe 2/3 of the gallon. 
This was sooooooo good.  Everybody loved it.  It tastes like the yummiest, tastiest Starbucks.  Even people who didn’t like coffee, liked this.  Yummilicious, I promise!
