First, let's go with the food, since I love to take pictures of it.
The whole food table. My best friend brought beautiful flatware for us to use and this punch bowl.
I think Brooke enjoyed the food ;)
Now for the activities!
As guests were arriving, we had them fill out this little card. It gave them something to do. Sometimes I feel awkward at the beginning of showers, so it was kind of an ice breaker. It comes in different colors, we used the gray/pink combination.
Next we had a little quiz about Brooke and her husband as babies. My mom and I came up with the questions and we thoughy the answers (at least for Brooke's questions) were SO EASY! We were wrong, no one got more than one answer for Brooke's section correct. It was fun to find out about Brooke and Mr. Brooke as kids. We had pictures to go along with our answers and then had them displayed for the guests to look at afterwards. The winners got Skittles and Snickers, the couples' favorite candies.
Finally we played a game I named "Exactly or Excrement" It was my take on a game my family loves, Fact or Crap. We had two teams. I read a statement and each team had to decide whether the statement was true (Exactly) or false (Excrement). I made cute little paddles with cardstock circles and popsicle sticks but forgot to get a close up of them.
Me (my best side) holding the paddles and explaining the game. The white side says "Exactly" in gold ink. The brown side says "Excrement" in brown ink. I'm mature.
The shower was lots of fun and I probably wouldn't change a thing (except having a tie breaker question). Thank you so much to my mom, who did SO much work. There was no way I could have done it without her. Also thank you to Brooke, my grandma, aunts and best friend for all the work they did. If you have ANY questions, I'd love to help!
