Inexpensive Baby Shower Ideas



If you follow my blog at all you know that recently I hosted a baby shower. 

The shower was for my dear co-worker Amy as she and her husband Ben are expecting their first little bundle of joy....a boy due later this month.



 For her shower I kept things simple.

Decorations were mostly scrapbook paper cut pennant style and strung on jute. These were hung in the living room and above the gift table.





Here are the supplies I used:



A shower game gift for the mom to be was used as decor.


 A few inexpensive poms added more color to the table, and I had enough of the pennants to add them 


But the punch, oh the punch was the best part! It is so good!

Its a cream of coconut punch that is amazing. I wish I'd taken a pic of the full punch bowl but alas. {Its hard to be the hostess and a blogger!}


Here's what you'll need:



I forgot the ice cream. You will need vanilla ice cream.

The coconut can be found in the mixed beverage section of your grocery store.



Here's what you'll do:

In a blender put 32 oz of pineapple juice, 1/2 small bottle of rum flavoring, and 21 oz of cream of coconut. Blend well. Just before serving add this to your punch bowl with 2 Liters of lemon lime pop and top with scoops of vanilla ice cream.


And....its almost gone, so sad!



Amy ended up having her baby early, about a week or so after her shower. Little Gabriel is just about perfect!



Thanks for stopping by!
