I'm so glad I finally got around to posting these fun pictures from Kimberly's baby shower.
We had such a great time celebrating my big sisters first baby girl, who's due in August.
Here is how the shower went down :)
First we had our guests stop in the dining room, to get bombarded by all things "baby shower" lol.
I figured that it was better to have everything in the same spot, so they could get all the baby shower, activity goodness done in one shot.
Karlie, my sister in law, provided all the beautiful flower arrangements.
And came up with some fun games!
I made this fun little flip book for all of Kimberly's guests to take a page of, and write down some of their own, "motherly advice".
I did this for her wedding shower, and it was a big hit!
Plus, it helps you really remember who was there on this special day!
Here's how I made this.
I just cut cute scrapbook paper into 4x6 pieces... layered some other fun paper, that I punched out... used some pillow and pop out stickers, ribbon, designed a cute saying in photoshop and put it all together on a clasp ring... and wa-la!
For the page inserts that the guests wrote on, I just stamped them up all differently.
I also found this great game that listed baby terms and then had a popular candy that went along with each one. You can find the answers and printables here in this post.
It was a HOOT to listen to all the answers and then see the ladies faces as the TRUE answers were revealed.
I would definitely do this again, at a baby shower.
Plus, it got people chatting and laughing.
Lastly, I bought some cute thank you cards, and placed them on the table with pens, so that the guests could write their address on them.
Makes actually sending off the thank you cards SO much easier for the Mommy :)
As far as food... My Mom was in charge. She had quite the spread!
Home made oriental chicken salad, fresh fruit and veggies... and DELISH yellow pudding cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
I decided that I LOVED the pinwheel craze right now, so I incorporated a couple into the shower decor.
They were fun, inexpensive, and worked out great.
Here is a tutorial on how to make them
After introductions... came presents!
Kimberly raked in a lot of great, useful presents.
Especially this "reach-all" from her sister in law, Aubrey. LOL.
What a clever gift for a Mommy with only a couple months left! hee hee.
Kimberly and her equally as pregnant friend Bethany
As everyone was leaving they grabbed one of these taffy pinwheel sticks with a thank you card on them, as party favors.
Although these took a bit of time... they were worth it, because they turned out so cute! :)
It was so great seeing my sister, and I already miss her!
I just can't WAIT till this sweet little baby actually GETS HERE!
We wish you nothing but the best Kimmy, and keep you in our prayers always!
Thanks for letting me be a part of this awesome experience.
Love ya, girl.
