Oh baby, baby!

We’ve had a few requests to write about baby showers, so we’ve finally caved.  I mean, how can you resist babies?  Here are a few fun ideas.

A fun invite…








 Pick a colorful invitation on a simple card stock. Wrap a corresponding ribbon around the card and tie a bow. Go to your local craft store and pick up some simple kraft brown boxes, fill with a layer of candy–bright colors preferred.  Place the invite on top of the candy, place the lid on top and wrap with another bow, if desired. It’s best to hand deliver these invites due to the sweet treats, which will either shift or melt…not so cute.



 Blume Box has some adorable favor ideas.  Some are even multi-purpose (place card and gift).  They are colorful and fun. Purchase various sizes at www.blumebox.com.




Darling gift for the mom-to-be…










We’ve seen some diaper cakes, but this one topped the list–it’s so colorful and coordinated. Take note!

Super cute centerpiece…









Isn’t this centerpiece fabulous? And even better that it’s easy to assemble, right? Take flower foam, soak it–but not too much– and stick on your favorite flower. Wrap it like a gift with a coordinating ribbon and you’re done.

Irresistible food service idea…









Ok, isn’t this the most adorable, creative idea? We thought so. Just hollow out a watermelon and fill with your favorite fruit salad. Pin the wheels (orange slices) on with a grape tipped toothpick.

Great games…

One of our new favorites is “bottle bowling.” All you need is a long hallway, ten empty baby bottles, a tennis ball (pink or blue if you can find them), and a scorecard. Strike, spare, who cares? This interactive game is a hoot!

Another favorite is “bottle chugging.” Yes, that thing you did in college. This game might be a great option for a co-ed shower, where some bottles could even be filled with beer (for those NOT expecting, of course). Fill baby bottles with milk, juice, sparkling cider–whatever your fancy–and have everyone stand in a line with their bottle (with nipple attached). Yell “go” and the person who finishes first, wins!

And finally, “spit the binky,” another interactive humorous game. Have your friends form a line and give each one a pacifier to put in their mouth. You guessed it…see who can spit their binky the farthest wins.
