Justification complete, on to the PARTY!!! We are planning a baby shower for a young mom at church. I was asked to work my magic on the decorations, which means make it look good on a budget of $0. The baby-to-be is a boy. I am such a girl party person, I was tempted to make this an honor the mom party and use my pink decorations. However, a little brainstorming about baby Paul, who is due in November and I came up with having an ALLIGATOR party!! I thought of Paul and then thought of fall (as in November due date) an that let to "In the fall, Paul" which reminded me of "Later Alligator". I never said it would make sense, but that is how my brain works. So here is the start to the invitation.
carving another watermelon, this time it needs to be an alligator watermelon!
If only I could find these guys! Apparently Toys R Us used to sell them and they blow BUBBLES!!! They don't seem to be on the website, so I am betting this Alligator Party was a while ago.
Hmmm. Maybe I will have to volunteer to bring the cupcakes. These are actually green fondant, with directions here, but I think they look an awful lot like those orange circus peanut candies. I wonder if I could dip them in green chocolate coating?
So, not a completely planned party, but my brain isn't really up to completing things today. Either way, we should be able to have a color coordinated, cute, alligator themed baby shower. Later, Gater!
