Jenny Yao’s Baby Shower

Author: JuliaL | Filed under: IQ Culture, Uncategorized

We held a baby shower luncheon for Jenny Yao today! She is expecting a baby girl in late December and today we showered her with gifts and good wishes. There was much fun to be had with food, shower games, gifts, and cake.

The first game was a competition to see who could unscramble the most baby-related words with toughies like teatley (Layette) and oralfum (formula). Then we all had a laugh playing the “Dirty Diaper” game which involves melting chocolate candy bars in diapers and then trying to guess what candy made each mess.

Jenny got some great gifts and we all had a great time. You can see the decorations, festivities, and food in the gallery.

After the press conference, employees enjoyed some social time at a “Tailgate Party” in the IQ parking lot. It was a fantastic evening filled with games, food and drinks.
