pete constructed a "pirate ship" which served as our drink table.. where i served pirates punch which was 1 bottle of oj, 1 bottle of apple juice, 1 bottle of white grape juice, 1 bottle of seltzer water , 3 oranges sliced and 3 limes slices..mixed then chilled.. served in a punch bowl.. i also took disposable muffin tins filled them up with seltzer water and sliced orange and froze it then used that as our "ice cubes".. we also served "grog" which was arnold palmer..
we filled our ice chest up with ice, water and root beer and the label read..
since it was a baby shower.. no real beer was served.. (well until later ha ha)
the food table turned out nice..
shell went to hobby lobby and bought a chest, jewelry and coins.. pete then beat it with a chain and screw driver then stained it.. it turned out really good!!
we served carrots and celery in individual cups with buttermilk ranch dressing.. and cream cheese filled celery.. i forgot to put the labels out these 2 items oops :(
we had salty sea dawgs.. which basically where little smokies wrapped in crescent rolls.. we had turkey little smokies and regular..
then we had fruit and cheese kabobs.. which we called
we served capt'n jax chicken salad sandwiches on mini croissants and shrimp macaroni salad... along with
we took clear glass jars, vases and the like and filled them with black and red candy and placed them around the party..
i dipped oreos in white chocolate and drew pirate faces with tube frosting as a treat for the guests..
the red i used would not set up i even tried to freeze but no luck.. so if they touched each other the red would smear.. next time have to use a different kind of tube frosting..
my nieces step dad makes really cute cakes.. so he brought this little guy over..
it was huge!!
as a little gift for when the guests left we had pirate cup cake wrappers and filled them with hershy nugget candy and chocolate coins and the sign read No Trespassing (a parting treasure).. i thought that as so cute.. my niece kelley came up with it.. :)
