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!
[Desserts were baked, created, and displayed by Vivian’s bridesmaid Amy]
[Tanner thought it would only be fitting to have cigars and a keg available for the men]
[I created this game myself “Bobbing for Nipples” which was hilarious, but in hindsight I would do things a bit differently such as exchanging the nipples for pacifiers and using a wider tub. The idea was still a hit with the guests and created a lot of entertainment for everyone!]
[We also had “Dress the Baby”]
[And of course the “Baby Bottle Chug” – which we learned first-hand from this baby shower to cut the nipples beforehand for easier flow during Angela’s “Little Peanut” baby shower.]
[These adorable star lanterns under the patio were found by Kathy.]
[Lauren also came up with the neatest tie-breaker game for the “Diaper Poop Guessing Game” winners. 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!]
[The new parents-to-be, at the time]
[This is the only picture of the invitations we have, courtesy of mama Vivian’s Instagram, that Tanner I worked so hard on…sadly this picture doesn’t do much justice since the stars were actually very glittered (to this day two years later we’re still finding gold glitter around the house!)]
All photos were taken by mama Vivian as well, or on her camera!
