Last week I hosted a baby shower for my friend Karen (the one whom we gifted a nicey jane baby quilt!).
It was the first baby shower I’ve hosted, and it was so much fun planning and picking out food, decorations, and a crafty activity! We used some fabric flags I had on hand to give a party atmosphere, and chose a number of snacky foods that would be easy to eat while chatting.
We decided to buy a big stack of white onesies and a rainbow of fabric paints, and asked the shower guests to go to town designing and creating onesies. This was a great activity, as it gave people something to do and a chance to exercise their creative muscles, but in a low-stakes format.
Our friend Hilary (who is, appropriately, a librarian AND in bookclub with Karen and I) created one of my favorites when she went with a book theme:
Since I spend so much time in the garden, I was inspired to encourage veggie consumption:
J had the great idea to make a onesie that referenced Karen’s alma mater:
And there were a number of other fun designs:
I highly recommend this to others planning a baby shower! In fact, I was inspired by my friend Kate’s onesie activity she shared on her blog a few months ago. Thanks for the inspiration!
