It is hard being a soon-to-be-father. I have to to get Laura water, wait to use the bathroom and drive places more often. Men need something to help them unwind as they prepare for fatherhood. Mothers have elaborate baby showers with all of their girlfriends and female family members. They eat fancy snacks, drink fruit punch (?), play fun games and get tons of "cute" gifts for the baby. In Laura's case, she had TWO of these showers, in different states! Those showers were beautiful, she loved them and we got SO much stuff for the baby. But I wanted something like that for me, geared more towards the father. Luckily, I have amazing friends from law school and I got just that.
Originally dubbed the "Goodbye Fun Eric Party" (thankfully that was nixed), this past Friday became the blueprint for how to throw a Legit Man Baby Shower:
First you need a fantastic party planner:
Then you need a nacho bar with all the toppings:
Not the best picture of me but Laura and the Nachos make for a solid pic
A cake that looks like some kind of ball is a must:
Wow! This is a different idea. I can do the same for my brother’s baby shower. He is also going to have a baby in some time. I just have to pick up his favorite event space NYC because the house is under renovation and I don’t want to wait that long. It was great coming across this post.ReplyDelete
