Baby Shower – Overview & Activities

18 Jun

Hold on to your hats, people, this is going to be a long one. Originally, I was going to split this up into a lot of entries, but I think since it’s been so long, I’ll just split it up into two: “Overview & Activities” and “Decorations & Food.” While my mom was up, she threw me a baby shower, and it was so much fun!

We, of course, had a Mario Brothers theme for the shower. This was the evite I made that my mom sent out to everyone. I don’t know if anyone would want it, but if you’d like, I can make it available as a download. Just leave a comment letting me know!

I got a lot of great presents, both from my registry and off. Just some of the things pictures are: “Give peas a chance” onesie from my friend Jess, a microwave bottle sanitizer from Mary, and the last two pictures have awesome Mario Brothers gifts from Nicole: Mario Brothers weebles and a print ad from a comic book for the Mario Brothers Atari game from 1983!  I would have included more pictures in this collage, but it would appear that I make TERRIBLE faces while opening presents, lol.

The above picture is a baby quilt that one of my co-worker’s mothers made, and I’m being a big nerd in the second picture and investigating the binding to see it it was machine or hand stitched on.  She said that it was a “cheater quilt” because the center is just a big panel, but I love it anyway.

Our activities were Mario Bingo*, baby shower word scrambles, “Colleen trivia,” and I had them decorate wooden “Ss” and “Ps” (the baby’s initials) that I’ll hang in the nursery.  Thanks to everyone who came out!

And that brings part 1 to a close!

*I made Bingo cards with Mario characters on them. Cute until I realized that I didn’t even know all the character’s names nevermind that no one else at the party knew the names… so I ended up calling things like “B little bullet guy” and “N angry looking alligator girl.” Ah well, lesson learned.
