Baby Shower for Krista

My dear friend Krista is expecting her first child in August and I was so honored to host a baby shower to celebrate the pending arrival of her little man, Elijah.

Here are some photos from the event!

Guest were greeted with a custom poster that I had made just for the event

They also had an opportunity to guess when baby Elijah would make his grand appearance. We used a Cowboys calendar because that is the favorite team of his daddy! 

Special designated area for the special mama to open her gifts! 

We played the "Price is Right" game where guests guessed how much common baby items cost! A game that really seemed to put into perspective that babies are expensive! 

 And, or course, guests should only drink out of baby bottles at a shower!

Here is the dining room with yummy foods all set up... The runner going down the middle of the table is actually just a high quality wrapping paper (from Homegoods) that I folded and taped to run down the length on the dining table... 

I cleared all of our dishes out of the china cabinet and filled it with some sweets! 

Everyone loved watching Krista open up the little gifts for Elijah! Some of her facial expressions were priceless!!! 

Must read for every new Mom!!! Porn for New Moms

Great diaper wreath made by an extremely creative guest

Some Milkscreen so that mama can have her special juice 

And I had to throw in a gag gift... or rather a prank box...

Fun time had by all!!!

** Printables were done by On the Go Prints an etsy shop. I told the designer exactly what I wanted and she created custom listings for me in only days. She was so easy to work with, talented, and economical! I HIGHLY recommend using her. I know that I will be for all of my future party planning!
