Our good friends Lindsay and Allan had a fun couples baby shower this past weekend and it was great! (Coincidentally they are also one of our past wedding couples too!)
Lindsay and Allan are having a boy in early June so we went with a traditional white and blue baby boy color scheme and added brown and gray to it. The shower was held at Lindsay’s parents house so we decorated it with beautiful floral arrangements, banners and balloons. We also had yummy Portillo’s Catering and my FAVORITE cupcakes for dessert–Chicago Cupcakes! (We also had those at my baby shower last year! SOOOO Yummy!!!)
For favors, Lindsay’s mom had Hershey’s bars and sachet bags filled with M&M’s. I made labels for the Hershey’s bars so they fit with the theme and the other paper items I designed, which included the banners and Celebrity Baby Name game cards.
We made 8 floral arrangements which were put all over the house. They were beautiful and springy and the tulips all popped open during the shower as the weather outside warmed up. We were able to go outside for photos too of the whole group of friends and babies, which was great!
Everyone LOVED this Baby Photo game. There were 18 guests, all of whom sent in a baby photo (to Lindsay’s mom) which I turned into a B&W image with a fun polka-dot border and hung them from a clothesline with mini clothespins. People had to guess who was who…it was funny–and WAY harder than we thought it would be. I got 5 wrong and had the best score!
This was easily the most fun shower I’ve ever been to–largely in part to the fact that both my husband and daughter were there and we have AWESOME friends! I am totally a fan of couples/couples with kids showers! There were 5 little babies and toddlers there including my own and it was just so cute and fun for them! I cannot wait to meet Baby Z!!! Babies are the best!!!
