I Like Ike

This past weekend, I threw a baby shower for this sweet little guy, Ike....
Instead of tying balloons on my front walk, I did something a little different so everyone would know they were at the right house. I made Ike letters, sprayed them gold, sprinkled them with glitter, then hung them on the front porch. When the guest drove up, this was the first thing they saw.....
The table was set...
the wine was chilling...
I found a Korean market downtown and filled the goody bags with Korean candies, cookies, chips, and gum....
A special cake with the Korean flag and "Welcome Ike"
Jello shots, for a baby shower?? At least they are baby blue....
Me, with my 2 sisters.... (I decided to wear the white dress)
It is a well known fact that my parties always end with late night dancing in my family room.I love that my kids and babysitter are dancing along with everyone at midnight!!
I just laugh when a couple hours before the shower, hubby wanted to know what kind of baby shower was I throwing that involved jello shots and a dance party mix? My answer, best baby shower ever!!

  3. You throw the best parties!! That reminds me - I threw a baby shower for my friend about 7 years ago. The night ended with people puking and me passing out on my water cooler giving myself a black eye. Yeah. Now that's a baby shower!!

    I love the photo of you and M. cutting a rug!! Your kids look they are having as much fun as you are. :-)
