Little Man

I have always wondered who decides what is going to be popular. Let’s take mustaches for instance. Are there people that sit in board rooms across America and go, “yeah, mustaches. Let’s make THAT trendy this year.” I mean, really? If there is, I want that job…bad.

Mustaches, no offense men, are kinda hideous all by themselves. BUT, I go with it. BECAUSE Little man. Oh, little man. Those two little words make my heart pitter patter. So ridiculously cute, right?

So a Little Man Baby Shower was born. I had the opportunity to throw a shindig for my girl, Moni.

While I would enjoy throwing David Tutera style parties, budget does absolutely not allow. One way I try to save cost is to pick something with a color that comes in basics. For example, white cups. Super cheap because they are well, white. Add some black mustache stickers from the mexican fiesta party line and you have a dang cute cup for not much dinero. Then repeat on some balloons because you saw that idea on Pinterest and you are set. Pick just one expensive piece from the expensive party line, like the plates,  and you get just as much bang for way more buck.

Grandma {of our upcoming little man} took care the game. It is so funny that grown women get together and play these games. My kids asked why we do this. “I really don’t know”, I reply. Tasting food in diapers, measuring prego bellys, and all of the other weirdness we do. Then we reward the winners with presents. No shower would be quite complete without it, right? I personally hadn’t see this particular game. Cracked me up. Draw a baby, on a plate, on your head. Complete it with a little man mustache sticker. Look at the concentration. Ha. #gograndma

We had a chocolate fondue party. I emailed a few of the guests before the party to ask if they could help and bring different things to dip. I had them bring the items ahead of time to avoid a potluck feel to our party. Chocolate fountains are temperamental but well worth it when you get them going. You have to do it just right, or they look like this and you might have to video it and send it to the friend you borrowed it from and ask her how to fix it. She will tell you and it will be fine. Don’t panic.

 Any potential disaster is worth it because really, who doesn’t like to stand and hold bite size dessert items under dripping chocolate? Best of the night had to be the glazed donut holes. Just regular glazed donut holes from the donut store. Ridiculously good.
