This past Sunday Ashley and I hosted a baby shower for Christine. We've been planning since before we found out the genders of the babies and were so excited when the clock finally struck one on Sunday and it was time for the shower to start! Christine is having a girl and a boy so we decided to go for a colorful twin shower theme!
|We had a Storybook Collection of The Berenstain Bears books to sign as a guestbook!|
|Everyone wrote their name on the date they think the babies will be born...then we asked Christine when she thinks the babies will be born and whoever was closest won!|
|Guess how many jelly beans are in the baby bottle! We had guesses from 100-450! The correct number was 250 :)|
|We decorated burp cloths as our "arts & crafts" :)|
For the food we decided to go for a twin theme!
|Ok so veggies was the only thing we couldn't come up with a twin theme for but who doesn't love veggies & ranch??|
|Cheese & Cracker PAIRS|
|TWO Layer Fruit Salad with pineapple & strawberries|
|TWICE Baked Potato Dip with Ruffles|
|DOUBLE Decker Sandwiches...Chicken Salad & PB&J!|
|Raspberry Lemonade & Citrus Water|
In-between games & decorating we had a DOUBLE Fudge Sundae Bar that was a hit!
We had lots of toppings that included brownies, chocolate chip cookies, mini m&ms, sprinkles, nuts, crushed DOUBLE stuffed oreos, gummy bears, andes mint bites, bananas, chocolate sauce & caramel sauce!
We ended the shower with Christine opening her wonderful gifts!

It seemed like everyone had a lot of fun and Christine received lots of necessities for those precious babies. I'm so lucky to have her as a friend (how convenient is it that we live next door??) and can't WAIT to meet those precious babies!!
(And next up...Ashley's baby shower in January!!)
