Last week I posted the first baby shower I did and it seemed to be a pretty big hit on pinterest.
So why not share another?
I planned 3 baby showers last year. After the first one I kind of became obsessed with party planning :)
I love surprising people with a party just for them & making the party unique. (No store bought party packages here!)
One on my closest friends Linda was expecting a baby boy & since I hadn't seen her since she moved I was more than happy to throw her baby shower when she came for a visit.
|Made this banner myself|
The banner was a pain, to put it lightly lol
I literally cut and traced EVERY thing for it.
I used scrap-booking paper from HobLob, cut in a triangle then typed and printed out the letters in Word.
Cut and pasted them, then used some blue ribbon to tie them together.
Even though it was a pain and you can barely see some letters, I loved it!
Nobody sold all star banners around town so ha!
|The food table|
For the food table, I used pom poms(again made at home)
then tied fishing line to sport cut outs. Who says you cant use pom poms for a boy?
Then I used sport colors for the utensils, napkins,etc.
|Sports Diaper Cake by Mom & I.|
Whats a baby shower with out a Diaper Cake?! Thankfully I have a very crafty mom, every party or baby shower I've thrown shes been right there helping.
She first made a diaper cake with my youngest daughter, and they were beautiful!
So she taught me & together we've done quite a few over the years.
I saw the idea of using receiving blankets around the cake & decided to give it a try.
Awesome right? I think it makes it look more like a "cake".
Plus you can never have too many receiving blankets!
|Mommy to be seat|
Here is the Mommy to be's chair, sitting next to the prizes for the games.
I went to Micheal's and found all kinds of sports related things. All for a $1.
The bags are reusable, and inside were playing cards(in the shape of sports balls), candy, lotions.
|Onesie Clothes line|
|Diaper Doodling Station|
To keep the guests' busy we did diaper doodling, between the games and eating.
It was cute to read some of the messages, and some were down right hilarious.

|Sport themed foods|
|Moms popcorn & chocolate covered pretzels|
|Oreo's covered in chocolate|
|Sports Punch with All Star duckys|
Remember the last shower we put stickers on Hershey's Kisses? Well, they fit on Reese's too!
Lastly the favor station. We had a co-ed shower, so I made the guys Temper Tantrum sauce(hot sauce)
and the ladies Hershey bars.
|If you look close you can see their names in the background|
|Home made candy wrappers|
Candy wrappers were actually leftover paper from the banner. Then printed the rest on sticker paper. Boom! Custom Candy wrappers!
The hot sauce wrappers were sheets of sticker paper cut to fit around the bottles.
The guys loved the hot sauce, and its really hard to find favors for men. You could also do BBQ sauces and call them baby Q sauce. There you have it, see ya'll soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
