“Star-Studded Affair” Baby Shower

Although these photos are older – like a lot older, I thought with it being throw-back-Thursday, I’d throw it back to the first ever baby shower I had the pleasure of hosting! This shower was for my brother-in-law Jason and my sister Vivian when she was pregnant with my now two-year-old niece Kaitlyn! The theme was a “Star-Studded Affair” and was held at our little home with Walls with 85+ guests (near 100 that came and left) and one bathroom! Tanner and I had the pleasure of hosting this baby shower with Vivian’s bridesmaids and our friend Lauren (who handmade the adorable star mobiles). With as many guests who RSVP’d for the star-studded event, we decided to hire a taco man to feed the crowd which worked out perfectly. Since I was finally becoming an auntie, I was beyond thrilled and excited to host such an event!

The idea was still a hit with the guests and created a lot of entertainment for everyone!]

The tie-breaker was last minute and such a success – it was “Find the Safety Pins” which were hidden in rice and you wouldn’t think it was that difficult until you actually try it yourself!]
