A Royal Celebration for Baby King!

A Royal Celebration for Baby King!

A few weeks ago I hosted a baby shower for my best friend.  Selecting the theme was a piece of cake!  Given their last name is King, a medieval theme was a must!  Plus it is a very unique theme for a baby shower, perfect for this one-of-a-kind momma to be!  See all of the details of this festive affair below!

Menu:

  • “Crown Jewels” – Grapes and fruit dip
  • “King’s Treasure” – Gold and silver chocolate nuggets
  • “Dragon Eggs” – Deviled Eggs
  • “Dragon Scales” – Tortilla Chips
  • “Fire Breathing Salsa” – Salsa
  • “Sir Maverick Sliders” – Equal parts hot italian sausage, ground beef, velveeta on slider rolls (I did 2lbs each for about 50 sliders)
  • “Shields” – Cheese 
  • “Swords” – Pretzel rods
  • “Dungeon Dip” – Onion Dip
  • “Renaissance Turkey Legs” – Chicken wings
  • Cupcakes – I forgot a cute nametag 🙂
