I want to share a few more fun ideas with you. First off, following up on my earlier invitation post, I adore this invitation made by Karrie Pyke Designs.
One reader asked about creative baby shower games. One fun one is to have guests guess whose traits the parents would hope their baby gets. For instance, whether they would want the mom's eyes or the dad's baby blues. Whether they would want the dad's sense of humor or would prefer the mom's. Have guests write down their answers, and then have the mom-to-be give the answers that she and her husband previously decided on.
A great activity is to have guests decorate onesies for the baby. It is fun to see what people come up with and every new baby needs a handful of onesies. This works best with a smaller guest count though- no baby needs 30 of them!
We did this at a co-ed shower and it was a blast. It was really funny to see what the guys came up with! You can use permanent markers or fabric pens or paint. Be sure to put a piece of cardboard in the middle of the onesie so that the ink/paint does not bleed through to the back.
One of the best parts about a shower to me is the dessert. For baby showers, mini or "baby" desserts are great! These were from Vanilla Bake Shop:
How cute are these cookies, made by Melody of Sweet and Saucy Shop?
I am going to leave you with some photos of the baby showers that my sisters and family friends threw for me when I was pregnant with my little man (I cannot believe that it has been over a year and a half!):
The theme of this shower was "I is for Isaiah" (my son's name). My sister cut out hundreds of "I"'s on her cricut to use as confetti all over the tables. It was really cute!
