Once Upon A Time...

...was the theme for the baby shower I attended earlier this month. I thought it was a creative spin on the traditional shower as it added that touch of uniqueness that I treasure!

A fun game played during the event was "guess the girth" which was new to me. Each guest was asked to guess how many squares of toilet paper it took to go around the mom-to-be's baby bump! We all laughed as we tried wrapping the rolls of toilet paper around our own imaginary bumps in order to get an "accurate measurement" of the mom-to-be!

The decor and menu were based upon various children's books with a coordinating menu for each book!

There was an Alice and Wonderland spread with red velvet cupcakes and tea sandwiches. A plate of chocolate chip cookies to nibble on with the book If You Give A Mouse A Cookie. Then there were bowls of nuts and berries to go along with the book Bears In The Night! Not to miss was the Curious George banana bread, and a bowl of swedish fish to go with Dr. Seuss's One Fish, Two Fish, Three, Four, Five Fish! And finally chicken wings to sing along with the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and madeline cookies for a sweet ending to pair with, Madeline.As a parting gift, guests were given a cup filled with various teas to go home with!
