Baby Boy Blue Shower

I’ll be revisiting a few posts the next few weeks as I soak in the last 2 weeks with the kids before school starts…

Over the weekend I had a little dinner for 3 of my girlfriends…ALL expecting BOYS! I decided to have the dinner baby shower style. We had such a fabulous evening…

about 3 2 L bottles of Sprite Zero (or any clear soda)
1-2 pkgs Kool-Aid Twists Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade (substitute pink lemonade Kool-Aid for pink punch!)
1 bag of ice

* 12 Ball® Regular Mouth Pint Jars with Lids $15.99 for 12
* Glass beverage dispenser from Target (I didn’t see it online & purchased in the store for $24.99) I like the way the shape of it matched the mason jars.
* I also offered water in a Threshold™ Glass Water Bottle – Elephant Gray (1 Liter), $9.99
* Aqua Party Drink Kit, I purchased a set of 12 for $9.99 (including shipping) My party was only 6 so it was affordable and easy to have the set premade. For larger parties it would be probably be cheaper to buy twine, cardstock, & straws in bulk.
* mini chalkboards from Joann Fabrics. I purchased 12 for $3.49, and used one of them to label the punch.

The painted animals:

Remember the cute plastic animal toys I was painting? I finished them last night. I used a few coats of white spray paint + blue acrylic paints. You can purchase a 48 pack at Party City for $9.99. I only painted about 15 of them. They’ll be used for a little event I am hosting on Sunday. The rest I saved for my kids to play with.
