Jen's favorite food is TexMex, specifically Chuys. So I came up with a menu of casual TexMex fare, with some of Jen's favorites. She loves the skillet queso from Chili's, so of course we had to include it. My friend Shannon made an amazing cake to replicate the invitations, she is unbelievably talented. I attempted fondant sugar cookies for Miss F's first birthday party...they were a disaster. Shannon is a miracle worker for doing what she does with fondant. I had such a lovely time planning and hosting this shower with my friend Melissa. I think the most time consuming part was slicing all the fruit for the skewers. Other than that, everything came together quite quickly. Though I did learn a good lesson, do not have something in the oven, four burners going on the cooktop and 40 guests over on a 100 degree day...our air conditioner just couldn't handle it. Once everyone cooled off with a drink, we were set to open the massive amount of baby gifts, everyone was beyond generous. We can't wait to meet Jen's baby boy!
