I hosted a baby shower for my friend Crystal yesterday. She is having twin girls. My friend Marci (who lives in AZ) wanted me to post pictures and details of the shower, so here they are.
She isn't a big pink fan so I didn't add an ounce of pink to the invitations (although it was tempting).
I made this fun banner to hang for the shower. I saw the diaper cake on here on Talia's blog and thought it was such a cute idea.
We played three games. The first was a word scramble game, where everyone tried to decode a bunch of baby-oriented words. The second game was a cute idea Aleisa had (Aleisa gave the shower with me). She passed diapers around and everyone wrote advice or little notes on the diapers for Crystal. The third game was trying to find safety pins in a bowl of rice while blindfolded. Whoever could find the most in 45 seconds won. It sounds easy but it's really pretty difficult. Three was the most anyone got.
And of course the presents were fun. I couldn't resist using pink wrapping, despite Crystal's aversion to pink.
For the food, Aleisa made salsa and brought chips, we had cream cheese with a sweet pepper relish poured on top with crackers, pasta salad, and chocolate covered strawberries.
And one last picture - our cat, Squeak, loves to be social. He's always around when we have company over. Here he is, enjoying the shower.
It was really fun. I'm excited for you Crystal!
