Logan, my boss, went to MU and is a big fan so even though MIZZOU has nothing to do with the theme of her little man's room we just thought it would be fun and different. We being me and Kyle, a co-worker of mine. The shower wasn't a surprise but we didn't tell her the theme ahead of time and she was shocked and loved it!
Once Kyle and I settled on the MIZZOU theme I started google
"MIZZOU parties" and realized there really weren't that many floating
around on the internet to copy so it forced me to get creative! I
designed all of the pennants, flags and "foam finger" signs on my
computer and then printed them and cut them out. We got the chicken
salad at Sam's, sounds odd I know but that stuff is ah-mazing. I made
the "Tiger Punch" (click here for recipe) and pasta salad while Kyle handled cutting up the
yummy fruit. Savannah is a master baker and huge MIZZOU fan so we knew
she would be pumped to create a cake for the occasion. She used yellow
and black food coloring with vanilla cake, cream cheese icing to
separate the layers and cool Whip icing to cover the cake. It was to die
All of our co-workers pitched in to get Logan a double stroller
and a video monitor for the nursery. We wanted her to have a few more things to
"open" so we all brought books with an inscription for the family instead
of cards. Some were duplicates of books she had, but a lot of them were
new! And all of them were new for the new baby's bookshelves. If you
couldn't tell Baby Aguirre doesn't have a name quite yet but he will be
here by April 16 at the latest so we will know soon enough!!
