Belated August News: Kathy's Baby Shower...






















Kathy is the bright-eyed, smiling, strawberry blond in the striped shirt...










My friend, Elaine, and I joined forces to put a baby-girl shower together for our expecting friend, Kathy. It was held on the base, as you will notice by some of the food items and the general feel of the party. It turned out so nice. We combined both her American and Italian friends and her mother-in-law and had an interesting time translating in between, but it was so worth it. Check out the yummmy food table along with the cute Watermelon baby carriage that Elaine and her friends got together for the occasion; Elaine and her beautiful, homemade fondant cake; Julie's Diaper cake creation; my paper flowers as part of the favor; and shots of the games. We did three games. One was to have two people work together just using one hand apiece to completely dress a baby doll. First team finished without cheating won. We did a memory game using items used in caring for or distracting a baby or small child... Whoever got the most memorized and written on a list, won. We also did the pin game, where you each where a pin and avoid saying words like "baby" (in English or Italian or in any other language), "pink", etc... I made some papercuts for the prizes and some for part of the favors as well. It was a lot of work, but it was nice to see how nicely it came together, and to bless our dear friend. It was planned to be a surprise, and she surely was, which was also a plus!!1 :-) So, Hope you like seeing our busy but fun day... :-)
