The Recipe for a Perfect Baby Shower

We held Clare's baby shower on Saturday and it turned out WONDERFULLY! I'm not talking pat myself on the back great, but REALLY great. You want to know why? I'll tell you!

We based the shower on Clare's cravings...baked mac & cheese, biscuits & gravy, KFC, and summer salad. Everyone was GIDDY when the menu was announced!!!
Jennifer, our hostess, gave a beautiful welcome and blessing, then we got out of the way and let everyone enjoy an afternoon of eating and mingling!
We played passive games...the leg crossing game got pretty competitive. We also played present bingo when Clare opened gifts...people could participate if they wanted to...if they didn't, no sweat! (PS-poor Barbie came even though she had surgery the day before...what a trooper!)
Clare's mother-in-law showered her with gifts from Matt's childhood, including a Halloween costume consisting of suede chaps...A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!
Clare was surrounded by family...
...and friends. What more could you want?
Oh ya, a GIANT piece of delicious cake!!!

Thanks to all our friends who came to celebrate Clare on her special day! Clare, we know you'll be a wonderful Momma and can't wait to meet your little guy! PS - thanks for craving all that yummy food!!!

BTW, what a great shower idea. I have to say, all that food looks delish.
