My friends and I threw a surprise baby shower for my best friend Monica. It turned out successful. You should've seen her face when she came in room. She was so surprised LOL. She said she had no idea.
Planning was easy since I had my friends and her boyfriend to help me. We had food, silly baby shower games and booze for the men. Yes there were men. This is not your traditional baby shower lol. The booze helped to loosen them up so they could play the shower games ^_^. The food were all Monica friendly. She can't eat greasy food because she pukes it out, so carne asada, tacos and burgers were scratched off the list.
Instead, here's what we had...
I asked my good friend Lupe to make her famous Chocoflan. Did I tell you she made 8 Chocoflan for my wedding? She's so awesome! And since Mon loves owls, she made mini chocolate mint owl cakes that served as decoration. So cute, right?
I made these super cute and yummy Mexican Chicken Pinwheels using DivasCanCook recipe. They are the perfect appetizer. So tiny and cute. It has cream cheese, shredded chicken, tomatoes and spices. These were gone in no time.
I also made Mini Turkey Cranberry Sandwiches with Pan Dulce bread. They were like mini Thanksgiving on a sandwich! Very light and tasty. I was telling everyone how Mon and I used to eat the cheapest turkey meat sandwich with cream cheese and ketchup back in college because we were always broke.
Lupe also made Jaiba Salad. It's a crab ceviche salad with imitation crab meat, cucumbers, tomatoes, cilantro, and lemon juice. So simple, light and refreshing. Best eaten with tostadas.
I asked one of our friends Vincent to bring a veggie platter. I love grocery store veggie platters. They have the best ranch dressing!
Our friend Erika was in charge of the decorations. She did such a great job! Pink, green and brown balloons, table clothes and the cutest owl ceramic with lollies as centerpieces!
