Sunday I am throwing a baby shower for Thing 1 and I’m pretty sure I will be MIA until then. (ok and probably the following Monday)
Gone are the days that I could single-handedly whip up a party for 30 people with less than a days notice. I have been slowly “setting up” for the last couple of weeks, and I have enlisted the help of a few of my friends and her best friend.
I found great ideas for baby themed food, games, and decorations on pinterest that I could do myself without breaking the bank. Thank Goodness for dollar tree, dollar general, and facebook marketplace for cheap finds as well.
The picture above is my first ever attempt at making a diaper cake. We’re going to call it a tricycle cake.
Some of the ideas I found for baby shower themed food are :
I can’t promise my creations will turn out as well, but I am going to attempt them.
For games/activities we are planning:
Mommy and Daddy Teamwork-
Thing 1 and her husband have to undress, clean, and redress a baby doll using only one hand each. I don’t really think they are going to have any problem with this, since they are a good team.
Because Thing One is having twins, we are asking each guest to change one baby doll while somehow holding the other. (the only baby that can be laid down is the being changed.) I hope some will let me record this, since I think it will be hilarious watching what people come up with.
Name Tag Game
After everyone has been introduced with their real name, I will be handing out name tags and asking them to come up with a baby related name to put on their tag. Ie..diapers, formula etc. Each time someone is caught calling someone by their Real name, they must give up a safety pin. The winner is the person who has the most at the end.
Onesie /Bib decorating
Thing 1’s best friend is buying plain one-sies and bibs for each guest to decorate.
We have other games to add in also if time allows. We shall see.
I’m looking forward to the shower, and hope to have lots of pictures and maybe video to post next week.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
