Two months ago, I discovered products and cooking ingredients that encouraged me to cook. Read all about it here: Check out on What Encouraged me to Cook! I have enjoyed cooking for my family and recently, I had a great time and enjoyed cooking for one of my best friends who is pregnant with her second baby. I got to throw a double baby shower celebration for her and her sister, since both of them were pregnant! It was a cool double baby shower celebration. This party was part of the Clara Ole Potluck Foodfest. The Clara Ole Potluck Foodfest is a series of eight themed potluck mini parties at condo residences. In the party, we got to share our own own signature dishes using Clara Ole products.
It took us weeks to prepare for this baby shower. I am really thankful that the Clara Ole team helped a lot in preparing for the event. The theme that we had for that double baby shower celebration was inspired by the book Dr. Seuss’ Oh the Places you’ll go. This is why we had little hot air balloons dangling from the ceiling. My friend Sharon is having a baby girl and her sister Michelle is having a baby boy. This is why we had to incorporate both the colors blue and pink.
The celebrants were so happy to see the decorations and were really excited! We had our pictures taken first before the guests arrived!
When guests arrived, they had to write down their own tips (#diskartips) for mommies Sharon and Michelle. I called out some guest to read their tips for the two lovely mommies, too!
When almost everyone was there, I welcomed the guests to an afternoon of good food, fun and surprises! Of course, we started by introducing the dishes that we prepared. The first dish was prepared by Michelle. She prepared Chicken Lollipops with assorted Clara ole dips. It’s a very straight-forward dish but kids love this! All you need to do is to fry the chicken. It’s so easy to preprare.
The second dish was from Sharon. She prepared Grilled pork belly. A lot of people love liempo. They will love it even more when they did what Sharon did which was to use the Clara Ole Barbecue Marinade Hickory.
The third dish was prepared by yours truly. For those who don’t know, I love Spanish sardines so what I did was I made pasta using the Clara Ole Cheesy Pesto Pasta Sauce. I cooked spaghetti then mixed the sauce and then topped it with parmesan cheese and Spanish sardines.
The last dish which was truly a hit was the Ensaimada topped with Clara ole guava jelly, which my friend Chef Raquel made. This was a great idea! This is something that you can actually pull off and prepare for your own celebration and party!

We also had a unique drink! We had Dalandan Soda mixed with Clara Ole Truly Fruity Blueberry. It was delicious!
After eating, we played games and here are some games that you can do for a baby shower:
1) Make a Baby using modelling clay – The adults and kids had fun making cute babies using clay. During the party, we had a lot of creative babies that Amy Perez-Castillo, Clara Ole Brand Endorser had a hard time choosing the winner!
2) We also played a game called baby genius. The mechanics was that the two celebrants had to guess as many words as they could in 2 minutes. They could ask questions only answerable by yes, no or maybe!
3) We also played guess the waistline of Mommy! Contestants had to cut a ribbon approximating the waistline of mommy. They could not go near nor touch the mommies!
Clara Ole gave amazing prizes for the Clara Ole Potluck Foodfest Double Baby Shower! We all had so much fun! We would like to thank Amy Perez-Castillo also for coming and joining in the fun!
We had so much fun. Are you preparing for a baby shower soon or any children’s party? What are some #diskartips that you would like to share? Feel free to comment below!
