Tropical Mommy/Baby Shower

Going thru pictures recently, I realized I've never told you about this baby shower. Probably because we hosted it before I'd decided to embark on the journey de Rosita.

We wanted the shower to be more party and mimosa brunch, less baby shower and silly games. So we took the mama's love of Hawaii and ran with it.

We started with these invites to set the tone:

Using the nursery colors, we created a yummy, mama-focused brunch. The stage was set with lanterns and my grandmother's china.

we enjoyed a feast of monkey bread, egg casserole, and the most beautiful fruit salad, with peanut m&m's for dessert! (mama's favorite) We served coffee and a mimosa bar as well.

For "games", we did a crossword puzzle of baby/pregnancy words, because mama loves them, and a celebrity baby matching game. We also presented mama with a diaper cake (which did double duty as a centerpiece for the gift area).

Guests left with a bag of chocolate covered macadamia nuts and chocolate clusters. (I guess the tag technically should have said 'mahalo', huh?!)

It was my first time hosting a baby shower at my house, and we had a great time! Special thanks to my co-hosts, Jenn and Priscilla. All shower photos courtesy of Priscilla.
