Baby Shower 101 - {with your help}

babyshower 06 7 Most Awkward Baby Shower Games
{via}

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!!!

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! http://www.marthastewart.com/314380/raspberry-lemonade-punch?czone=entertaining/baby-showers-cnt/baby-showers-recipes

Good luck! :)

I am the queen of party punch! Love making them:) Here's one I've done before that is easy AND delicious!

1 can frozen cranberry juice concentrate
1 can frozen pink lemonade concentrate
1 can frozen limeade concentrate
1 bottle white wine, chilled
2 (750 milliliter) bottles champagne, chilled
Garnish with sliced limes on top!

Good luck!

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 useful...plus 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!!

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.

It's AMAZING!
