Hosting a Baby Shower!

I was given the honor of throwing one of my best friends a Baby Shower a couple weeks ago, and I was so excited!
I have attended many friends' baby showers, and thanks to those, and Pinterest, I came up with some great ideas for decor, food, games, and favors!

My friend and her husband decided not to find out the gender of baby, so we used their nursery colors of turquoise, yellow, and grey, with a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme.














I bought the printed paper straws from a great Etsy shop: Loollipop!









I did a candy bar, mostly to add color, but I made sure we had favor bags with twist ties, and a little candy scoop (from Party City!), so guests could take home all the candy at the party's end.

Note: don't order fragile, melt-able candy online. It is heavy, so shipping is expensive, and a lot of those candy broke or melted.  Party City has a decent selection of pretty colored candy.





I set out a basket of diapers with Sharpie markers for guests to write a little sentimental, or funny note on the diapers, to make those late night diaper changes a little more bearable!











So excited for my beautiful friend! I can't wait to meet their little one soon!!
