All the baby items surrounding this baby shower planning has increased Baby Fever in the Tirado house. Fortunately, we are soon welcoming a nephew to our bunch and could not be more excited to have another baby in the family. My husband's excitement slowly decreased when he became bombarded with San Francisco 49ers gear once we finalized the theme. My brother has always been a 49ers fan for as long as I can remember and the second my sister in law said "I do," she was soon initiated in the obsession. As timing would have it, foot ball season was in full affect and a 49ers theme was easily accessible. The invitations laid ground work on my red and gold color theme. Dallas Texas is home of the cowboys so everything in my local stores was covered in blue and silver and everything I wanted in 49ers had to be ordered online. We decided to continue the football theme with the menu and serve chicken sliders, wings, fruit, and chips and dip. Once everyone had a chance to grab a bite of the deliciousness, we then started on a few games such as "feed the baby," "what's in your purse," and "name that baby food." The kids at the party seemed more interested in the games and I noticed a lot of competition when they were involved. After the prizes were handed out, mom-to-be opened her plethora of cute baby goodies. My favorite part was the tasting of the scrumptious strawberry coconut cake from A Slice of Life Cakes. Our thank favors for all the guest was a tasteful array of gold chocolate candy. Although the guys were enjoying their afternoon of football games, we had a blast of our own "football themed" fun.
