As most of you know, Erika is pregnant! She is now at 37 weeks and is looking as beautiful as ever. The Neumayer family really loves themed parties, and with Erika’s pregnancy came yet another excuse to have a party! We had so much fun planning Erika’s wedding shower on Halloween (of course Halloween themed) at my parent’s house, that we decided to theme “something” baby shower at their house again. We went through a few ideas until landing on Channel the Flannel… A lumberjack theme with chili, mac & cheese and a bloody mary bar! We thought this would be perfect for the time of year (February) and of course super fun!
The planning began with Erika’s cute invitations, complete with a baby moose wearing a flannel hat, an intro to what we will be eating, what to wear, and of course where it would be held. We then thought out our menu!
- Ants on a Log (Husbands favorite)
- Stuffed Mushrooms
- Southwest Bacon Dip
- Veggie Tray
Bloody Mary Bar:
- Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix
- Titos Vodka
- Olives: Blue Cheese, Green, Black
- Wurst & Cheese Curd Skewers
- Hot Sauce
- Black Pepper
- Pickled Onions
- Hilde’s traditional meat & bean chili
- Vegetarian Chili
- Slow Cooker Macaroni & Cheese
- Green Onions
- Oyster Crackers
- Tortilla Strips
- Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream
- Nothing Bundt Cakes “Bundtinis”
- Fire Roasted Nutella Smores
The living room, dining room, kitchen, and back porch, were all transformed in their own ways. We used flannel fabric, forest themed stuffed animals and cute signs to decorate. My aunts, mom and Erika’s mother-in-law had purification and thieves diffusing and did our very best to create a cozy and fun atmosphere for our guests!
Everyone showed up in his or her flannels, 30 women, our Dad and Christian. Erika also requested that in lieu of cards everyone bring a book, we loved going through everyone’s favorite children’s books both new, and old. We enjoyed a real log fire in the living room, great conversation, and amazing food together for Erika, Christian & Baby Ehrat’s Shower!
