My friend, Alina, is having a baby mid-december, so I threw her a baby shower! It's the first one I've ever thrown, and I had way too much fun. Thanks to Angela for coming to help me finish everything! And to Alexa for helping get all the food out!
I used those rings that babies play with - the ones that connect to each other - as napkin rings. All blue, green and yellow decorations, of course!
We had pretzels and m&m's as our finger food - or appetizer. WAY too addicting.
As a small treat, I made these napkin diapers and put whoppers inside.
I wanted to make a cake of huge blocks for the cake - but decided to make small blocks and eat them as cupcakes. WAY easier to eat than a huge cake.
Angela made the sign, and I made these booties - as gifts to the people who came. I filled them with pacifier candy and mints.
We had lemon water and sparkling cider - YUM.
And drank them out of baby bottles.
These decorations hung over the table - Angela spent a LOT of time making those cute balls.
Fruit was our "main course."
We played this game where you taste all the baby foods and try and decide what they were. Quite hilarious.
Alina opened all her presents - by number, and we all played bingo when she called a number on one of her presents.
We ended the party with a game of drinking the chocolate milk out of a baby bottle. First to finish - wins. Alexa was our winner. She was challenged later in the day by Eric, Eric, Angela and myself, and still won. It's a LOT harder than it looks!
We also took a ribbon and marked how big we thought Alina's stomach was. All in all, it was a VERY fun party!
Congrats to you Alina!!!
