Words for the Wee Hours! I asked people to write funny things on diapers with sharpies to make the mom-to-be giggle while changing the baby in the middle of the night.
|Everybody wrote out diaper giggles for the mom-to-be.|
|Baby Shower Bingo! I printed out a template I found online and glued it to colorful cardstock. Note to self, next time have pens.|
|Thank you to Linda and Angel for modelling the bingo cards|
|Ice Ice Baby! Another pinterest inspired idea. I put plastic babies in ice trays and froze them. When the ice melts, the guest yells "My water broke" for a prize! You can find the babies at Party City, or a craft store. Mostly everybody added babies to their drinks and had a lot of fun watching them melt. One attendee had twins!|
|Cool game - literally!|
What Baby Shower would be complete without a diaper cake? My wonderfully talented sister-in-law created this masterpiece for the new mommy.
|I love the sock ears!|
And what party would be complete without real cake!?
I created the owl cupcakes with Oreos, mini oreos, and Reeses Pieces. My sister had the baby cupcakes made from a local bakery. The one in the red hat is Ingrid, the new mommy. The other cutie pie is Matt, the new daddy.
They got a lot of great gifts. Lots of thoughtful items, some heirlooms, handmade creations, adorable outfits. All the great thing you'd want to see at a fun Baby Shower.
The last gift my sister opened was something I've been working on for a long time, and I haven't been able to share my progress on my blog, because it was a surprise! But here it is!
