Baby Shower 101 - {with your help}

babyshower 06 7 Most Awkward Baby Shower Games

So I have this baby shower that I am co-hosting tomorrow for one of my good friends, Shanna {who already delivered her twin girls six weeks early}. My favorite thing of ALL time is to host gatherings. I love it.
Yaddi Yaddi Ya.

My reason for this post. One of the things I've been said to do is make the punch.
I'm excited because I finally get to use the beautiful punch bowl we received at one of the showers. Yay! I usually do the green sherbet/ginger ale punch but  I really want a spectacular Outstanding over-the-top De-Lish punch that has everyone going back for more??? Yeah, that punch you made at your last gather. Tell me!
Any help? Maybe you have a recipe that is amazing & everyone will
dote over? I want dote-ers!

If so, PLEASE let me in on the secret.

I'm looking for R.E.C.I.P.E.S not {check pinterest}.
Being I've waited last minute to dwell on this... there is no time for pinterest. k? thanks lovers!

Ready. Set. Go
get your recipe book & come back!!!

Check Pinterest....I know there were a lot of yummy punch recipes on there.

Like Sarah said- Pinterest would help. You can search by a favorite flavor you might be looking for.

I found a Raspberry-Lemonade punch via Pinterest via Martha Stewart. I've made it a few times and love it!

Good luck! :)

I agree with the three above me! When I was reading your post, I was thinking that I wish I knew the recipe for the wonderful punch my MIL always makes..and that recipe just happens to be it!! :)

Heather said...

I posted a faux-gria recipe on my blog recently. I'm obsessed with it!

Kristine said...

Sherbert ice cream, and seven-up. It's bomb dot com.

Ashley said...

so i'm definitely behind on comment on anything that will actually be my recipe would probably involve something along the lines of sherbert and sprite...but i hope you had a great time and please share pics!!

Mrs. Robinson said...

I went to a women's Christmas party and had the most amazing punch! When I saw your post, I e-mailed the party's hostess and got the recipe.

The recipe is 2 cups Sugar, 2 packs Cherry Kool-Aid, 2 quarts Water, 48 oz. Pineapple Juice, and 2 liter Ginger Ale. Mix sugar, Kool-Aid, and warm water together and then add Pineapple Juice. Freeze the Kool-Aid mixture. When ready to serve, microwave the Kool-Aid mixture just a little. Let it still be icy. Then add your Ginger Ale. I didn't add all the Ginger Ale.
