Throwing a party

AddComments

Have the grocery store do all the work, but make sure you take all of the credit!

For the baby shower I’m throwing, I want things to taste good, look good, and above all-take very little effort on my part. It’s not that I don’t love the mom-to-be, it’s that I have a family of my own that needs tending to. I want her to have the best party I can give her, while not neglecting my DH and DD at home.

Here’s my plan for foodage:

Baked artichoke dip with homemade toasted baguette (this is the one item that will actually be made 100% by me)

Chicken Salad and Ham salad sandwiches on croissants (store bought everything, but I’ll put it together!)

Fruit salad (yummy yummy- haha! frozen, just need to thaw)

Veggie Tray (will buy in store, already separated and comes with dip!)

Nancy’s Deli Spirals (enough said)

BBQ and Jelly meatballs (I’ll throw them together in the crock pot the morning of. I’m known for these ‘balls.)

To drink, I’ll be making a blue punch- made with Blue Hawaiian punch, Sprite and vanilla ice cream. We’ll also have water and coffee.

And cupcakes. Lots of cupcakes. Made by the cake shop.

There will be *16* people there (well, only 5 have RSVP’d-and that includes me and the guest of honor).

What do you think of my menu? Think it’s enough for a 1:00pm baby shower?
