I saw a few designs that I liked under the 'Baby It's Cold Outside' theme for a baby shower. My husband created this for me, along with all of the other accompanying pieces.
Bold logo placement makes it very clear where the Mom-to-be is registered.
It is fairly common to see this at baby showers today. Reading to babies and children is really important and I wanted to help get a library started for my niece.
I have a young son and it's important to me that he know and recognize his family, even if we don't see them all the time. To accomplish this, we enjoy using Facetime, but also looking at photos. I wanted to create a book for my sister, brother-in-law, and niece so that she can learn to recognize her family members as well. This invitation insert showcases the request.
On the back of the photo request card, I included an example of our family. This was to be used as inspiration so guests could create something similar for their families.
This was one of three games played at the shower. I was able to get some information about the parents-to-be and worked it into a quiz. Guests filled in their sheets, my Sister and Brother-in-law revealed the answers. The person with the most points won a prize.
This template was printed on cardstock paper. I also created bingo sheets using an online generator with items that were on my Sister's registry. I printed bingo sheets on regular paper, cut them out, and adhered them to this template.
My husband also created this template for the shower. I created a word scramble through an online generator with baby-specific words. I printed those, cut them, and adhered them to this template.
When my sister was getting married, we did a Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar - a DIY drink buffet with fun topping choices. Now that she is having a baby, we wanted to scale that back. The Hawthorne Hotel did an amazing job with my vision!
In addition to the flavor additions, whipped cream, marshmallows, and candy toppings - we had stirring sticks galore!
They say it takes a village to raise a child. It also takes a village to execute a shower honoring that child. My amazing family volunteered to help out - and these Hot Chocolate favors were a result of that. My husband made the favor tags to match the rest of the material.
The village (aka my cousin Devra) did a great job with the centerpieces. She wrapped boxes, used a pink ribbon, tied three balloons to it, and cut out snowflake confetti to adorn the tables. They were simple, cute, and went with the theme of the event.
Staying with the theme, I used chalkboards for signage. The signs were used to guide guests to the gift table, book basket, and photo collection for the photo book.
