celebrating baby cater | baby shower
This past weekend my mom and I hosted a baby shower for Lori and baby London. Lori got super spoiled by friends and family, and now both her and Brian are all set for the little one to arrive. I went a little crazy on the shower details, as I like to do :), so I wanted to share some pics of some of them. My go-to theme for baby showers pretty much revolves around fabric banners, like I did here too. So the invitations, games, and decor were all tied together by that.
We played four games; guess the baby food, guess what chocolate bar made the poopy diaper, jelly bean guess, and bingo. The bingo cards are made up of items that I know were purchased of her registry as well as some generic baby items. The guests play this game while she opens the presents. This is a favourite shower game of mine for both wedding and baby because it gives the guests something to do while watching all those presents be opened.
I am obsessed with mason jars!!! There are so many good uses for them, not just for storing jam! I used them at my parents anniversary party as centerpieces by just popping in a candle and tying some rafia around the top. But for showers, I like to use them as drinking glasses.
As the thank you favour, I went with cake pops. It was my first time making them, and as much as I love to bake, I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan. They are a lot of work! So were the tissue paper flower centerpieces that I made, but look how cute they turned out!
Enter above mentioned fabric banner. I go the no-sew route, using iron on tape. It’s very easy to use, and considering I don’t really know how to sew, works just fine for me.
Overall the shower was a huge success. By that huge grin I would say that the momma-to-be had a great time too! 😉
