Little Man Baby Shower

YAY!!  It's Baby P's Little Man shower day!!!  We had to go all out for such a Manly Man :)  We can't wait to meet him - only 4 more weeks!!!
The invite - courtesy of Etsy! 
Wouldn't be a baby shower without a diaper / monthly onesie cake!

Then to keep with the theme, I made silverware/napkins into bowties :)

AND used the same format from the invite for some food labels!
Cream Cheese and Cucumber Sandwiches
Real bowtie awesome is that?!
Some other fun labels for the food (I forgot to take pics)!:
Wet Your Whiskers - punch / water
Baby Boys Candy - fruit
Little Mister Munchies - chips
Mustaches for the cupcake pics

And cutie mason jars with bowties around them - and festive mustache straws!
Led to some GREAT pics :)

 We made up a corsage for both the MOM-to-be and GMA-to-be

And some bowtie diaper garland :) for our photo booth backdrop!

 We had everyone sign a message for the Little Man
and then took pics with fun props to put next to it!

Layered Chicken Taco Salad

We needed something uber quick tonight, and this was PERFECT!  Tasted so good - and was super fast to make (like throw it all together fast).  Another good thing to add would be avocado and beans!  Yummy!!

Serves 6 - Pinterest

3 cup Romaine lettuce, chopped
3 cup fresh spinach
2 cup cooked chicken, shredded or diced
2 can (11oz each) Mexicorn, whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained
3 large Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 1/2 cup shredded Colby-Jack cheese
2 green onions, chopped (tops too)
1 1/2 cup southwest tortilla strips (or chips)
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
3/4 cup salsa
3/4 cup French dressing
In a large glass bowl, layer half of the lettuce and spinach. Top with tomatoes, corn, chicken and remaining lettuce and spinach. Top with cheese.

In a small bowl, mix together with salsa with French dressing. Pour over top of cheese. Garnish with cilantro, green onions and tortilla strips.

TUTU Themed Baby Shower-

YAY!!  My sister in law is having a girl, and I got to throw a GIRLY baby shower!  I decided to go all out -- TUTU style!!!

I started with the invites...

Table Centerpieces

Banners :)

Drink and Food

AND the CAKE!!  Linda made this bad boy -- how AWESOME is that?!  

Tulle Pom Poms

YAY!!  I love myself some tissue balls - but TULLE Pom Poms complete the TuTu themed baby shower idea  :)

Twine / Rope

Depending on the size of the pom pom you want - cut your circle into your cardboard.  Put a piece of twine/ribbon around the inner circle (make sure to be able to see the twine/ribbon).

Then start to wrap tulle around the circle until you have your "thickness" you are looking for.  Make sure to leave your twine hanging out - so you don't cut it.  Then cut the tulle around the circle.

Then tie the twine into a knot - pull the cardboard off - and POM POMS!

Tulle TuTu

How cutie is this TuTu Island skirt?!  Perfect for the TuTu themed baby shower :)

Tulle (I got like 20 yards)

I followed this tutorial here:

Pink Lemonade

Can frozen pink lemonade concentrate
Bottle club soda/Bottle Sprite (2 liter bottle)

Empty pink lemonade into tall glass pitcher...add in bottle of club soda or sprite...and yummy!
