Faye & Karl held a baby shower in celebration of their fourth son “Baby Halligan” at The Gallery at Liberty Prime in Jersey City, NJ.
The upstairs was decorated in the gold, white, and dusty blue color scheme. As guests arrived, they were welcome to “leaf” their fingerprint on the sign-in board, enter the “Diaper Raffle”, or leave any books in the collection baskets.
As guests mingled, they were invited to guess Baby Halligan’s arrival date in the Baby Pool competition. Guests would write their names in the box of the dates surrounding his due date to make their guesses. (Faye’s guess was January 17th – Karl’s birthday – because she knew Baby Halligan would try to steal his thunder and get all the birthday attention!)
The guests made their way into the dining room to enjoy lunch while playing the Candy Guessing Game. (Whoever guesses closest to the number of Hershey Kisses in the jar at each table wins the whole jar!)
As the dessert buffet opened, Faye & Karl played a funny game of “Mom or Dad”. With their backs to each other, they were asked a series of questions like “Who will Baby Halligan look more like?” and “Who will change more diapers?”. Using two glasses that they each held – a beer pint to signify “dad” and martini glass to signify “mom” – they would lift the glass of their answer.
Before the party ended, Faye opened all her thoughtful presents, including an intricate homemade diaper cake, a miniature Top Gun jacket (Karl & Faye’s favorite movie!), “Babiators“, onesies, diaper bags, blankets and toys.
