I have a confession: I am embarrassed that I haven’t done a recap on this event yet. Other than my wedding, this is the first event I ever did. And when I say, “did”, I really mean it. I cooked the food, came up with the favors, made the “cake” … other than the invitations and cupcake toppers, purchased off Etsy, this whole thing was my creation. It was a co-ed pirate-themed baby shower, and the parents-to-be couldn’t have been happier!
One of the activities for guests was a decorate-your-own-onesie station, with clothesline to feature creations after they were completed:
The food table continued the theme, as well as providing a truly ridiculous amount of food for people to ingest:
The favors were containers filled with chocolate “coins”, as well as mini-bottles of vodka, because nothing says baby shower like liquor
This was the first diaper cake I ever created, and I think it turned out well! The blue octopus was a dog toy for the baby-to-be’s older doggie sister, to be featured later:
From in utero, this child was destined to be preppy:
And he was also destined to be a pirate:
The onesie station proved to be a great success:
This book is probably one of the best ever gifts for new parents-to-be, because they obviously deserve presents, too!
As far as new moms go – champagne also makes for a lovely baby shower present:
And now, the aforementioned doggie sister. First, she shakes that bootie:
Then, she gives kisses to guests:
She’s taunted by a cookie:
And spoiled by other guests:
Still, her life is exceptionally difficult:
As far as booze goes, this is what happens at a co-ed baby shower with many fraternity brothers:
Yet the 7-month pregnant mom still outlasted many of the menfolk:
Many thanks to Anna, for allowing me to throw her baby shower. I love you in the face!
