Tips to Throwing a Fabulous Baby Shower

Hosting a baby shower on a budget? Here are some tips that will keep you under budget and feeling frugal.

1. Host the party at the mom-to-be’s house. It will keep costs down and you wont have to pay for a venue!

2. Make all of the party food from scratch, like finger sandwiches, carrot soup, pasta salad, fruit salad, and sparkling lemonade.

3. Buy a couple of packs of fabric markers (you can even re-use them for the next shower!) and have your guests decorate a onesie for the baby.

4. Play a fun game with your guests. My favorite game is the guessing game! Fill a bottle with pink, blue, green or yellow M&Ms or jelly beans and have your guests guess how many candies are in the bottle. Winner wins the candy!

5. Fill empty baby food jars with bath salts for part bags. You can make bath salts by mixing body-product safe fragrance oil (found at any craft store) and a little bit of food coloring (a few drops of red, blue, yellow or green depending on the theme or gender)! Fill the food jar and create a sticker label to personalize it. You can personalize it with “____________’s Baby Shower” with the date or “Welcoming ___________” with the due date. Tie it with a colorful ribbon and stickers and you’re good to go!

Happy National Sachertorte Day!

Need a new holiday dessert idea? Why not exchange the All American Apple Pie for a dessert of a different color, the exclusive Sachetorte. Only made in Vienna and Salzberg, they have even been kind enough to ship globally to the United States!

The cake itself is made up of two layers of dense chocolate sponge cake, separated by a layer of apricot  in the middle and covered with a lush, dark chocolate icing (you can even add whipped cream if your really having a good day).  Although this cake isn’t overly sweet, it stands out on the dessert table with its rich and powerful flavors.

Originating in 1832, the sachetorte came to be when Prince Wenzel von Metternich demanded that his chef create a unique dessert for his special guests. However, his chef was ill and it was up to his 16-year-old apprentice, Franz Sacher, to create this unique cake.

Sacher…Sachertorte? You can guess where this is going!

If you can wait to splurge, here is one of our favorite Sacher Torte Stores.
