Last weekend I threw a baby shower for a friend.  Partly because I like her and she's a friend, but also partly because I needed something fun to beat the "Christmas/birthday/New Year's is over, now what?"   Besides, I've never thrown a shower and felt like throwing a party.  And Chick didn't get a party this year... so what am I supposed to do, wait until Moose turns one?  That's in JUNE, people!

So anyhow, I threw a shower.  A blue and green shower.  It provided ample crafty-project entertainment and fun for me.  Here's the recap:
Tissue paper pom-poms & sewn streamers

We played an elimination game with the cupcake toppers, based on what the babies looked like (ie: "Stay standing if your baby is wearing a blue cap") The last person standing won.  Kendra's was the top guy, and part of her present from me was the rest of her peg family.

Sweet Pea Seed Packets as the take-home favors.
The table cloth was a thrifted sheet, and I just serged the edges.

green food.

Be-ribboned & stacked plate sets.

Lots of CUTE presents for the little guy!  And doesn't Kendra look great?!

I absolutely LOVE this picture!

It was all really fun to do.  Thankfully a few other gals brought food for it, since I'm not a foodie : )

This is the best idea and such a nice party. Everyone is happy and enjoying themselves. The clothesline of baby clothing is precious. Many are discouraged at the beginning of the year and what better way to bring joy to others than to host a party for a friend. I know I'll copy this idea. Somehow I missed what state you live in and if you are a homemaker or work away from home. These pictures are great.
