If you are anything like me, your friends are popin' out babies left and right! After doing a few parties and showers myself I thought I would share some helpful tops to make the planning go a little less stressful. I'm a girl on a budget, but that goes not mean the party has to look like one!
Home made chicken salad, olive and cream cheese, cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches.
HINT: to make the sandwiches the night before the party. Put a light spread of butter on both sides of the inside of the bread before making your yummy sandwiches.

HOW BABIES ARE MADE
WARNING might offend younger party guest
This is a partner game. All guest can play at the same time.. or 2 at a time race!
Partners will be standing 6-8 yards away from each other.
Partner A stands with a toilet paper roll between there thighs. (keep extra rolls near partner A)
Partner B is 8 yards away with a toilet plunger between their legs. haha
Parner B has to run or wobble over to Partner A without using their hands.. and sticks their stick through Partner A's toilet paper roll!
They take the roll, still with plunger between legs, and wobble back to their spot, drop off the roll.. and run back for more rolls!
This game gets everyone laughing.. and since they only have 1 minute to gather all their rolls.. this is one game you want to record!! HELLO YOUTUBE!! ;)
Prize Ideas for both games:
DVD's are cheap.. and you can even find them at BIG LOTS
