I know, I know. I haven't been posting very frequently... or at all. I hope to change that!
This weekend, I threw my best friend Rachel a baby shower. I scoured pinterest to see what great ideas I could get. Today, you get the benefit of my hard work!
First, let me show you some pictures from the baby shower. That way, you can see if you even want to replicate it. I think it turned out great! The shower colors were yellow, red, gray and white.
I had a "Ready to Pop!" area with soda pop, pop corn (caramel and butter), and some blow pops. I made some food labels using some I found on pinterest. YOu can find them here. They are originally in yellow, and I just used photoshop to make them gray. I then added some red text to them. My handwriting is HORRIBLE so I printed out text, but if you have great handwriting, there is no need to print out the text then!
I also had a food area where all the food was labeled with the same print out. I picked out the food based on what my friend had been craving throughout her pregnancy She had been craving eggs, bananas, apples, and rootbeer. So, I had deviled eggs, a fruit salad with apples and bananas, and some rootbeer in the soda pop area. I just happen to make a great pasta salad, so I provided that as well. I also had a "baby brewing" area with some great tea I brewed at home. I also had some cupcakes, but they didn't turn out well. I don't think cupcakes like me very much!
(Sorry about the semi-blurry pics. I was rushing to take pics before the guests arrived!)
I didn't want to go out and spend some more money on placeholders to put the labels on, so I just used some binder clips, and it worked like a charm. Who needs fancy stuff anyways?
Anyways, there you are! It turned out great! I found a bunch of these ideas off pinterest and just kinda mixed them all up! Guests loved it. Have you thrown a baby shower? Do you have any ideas to add? Cheers!
