About to Hatch Easter Baby Shower


Easter is a huge family holiday and also a great time for a baby shower. There are various ways to bind together the theme of Easter into your baby shower. Here are a few ideas:

Decorations

Eggs are a symbol of fertility and birth in countries all throughout the world. Eggs are also a traditional identification of Easter. You can actually have egg themed decorations at your baby shower ranging in soft pastel colors. Don’t be shy on using decor of chicks in addition to bunnies. Eggs are eggs and come in all sorts of varieties. Upon arriving, have your guests write nuggets of wisdom and/or advice regarding motherhood. Place them in a basic woven basket and have the mommy-to-be read them aloud at the end of the event.

The Best of All Things Come in Pairs


Preparing for the arrival of a new baby is a super exciting time. But that excitement doubles (out of control) when preparing for the arrival of twins. Themes provide a better focus while planning a baby shower (whether it be for yourself or a loved one) and allow you to concentrate on the sweeter details. A theme can tie everything together for a beautifully articulated event.

Two peas in a pod is a very popular theme that’s also flexible for however many multiples are expected.

Decorations

When selecting decor for your two peas in a pod twin baby shower, allow for several shades of green to take over, with accent colors depending on the twins’ gender (pale pink, lavender, baby blue, or pale yellow).

Food

So even though those green balls of goodness add flavor to dishes like pasta salads, you may not want to include peas in every dish you serve at the baby shower. Here are a few ideas:

Key Lime Pie Shooters

French Macarons with Kiwi Filling

Pea Pod Cake Pops and Sugar Cookies

Green Candied Apples

Mini Quiches

A Very Berry Platter

Favors

My favorite part of any party are the favors mainly because I love sweet details and I love seeing the creativity that goes behind favors (especially for themed parties). Here are a few ideas:

Two Peas in a Pod Salt and Pepper Shakers- These honestly add some zip to the saying “two peas in a pod”! The charming gift presentation also brings a cheerful touch to the joyous occasion.

Baby Feet Cookie Cutters- Granted this isn’t explicitly “pea” related, it still falls in to the category of adorable favors. Besides, who doesn’t want to take home cookie cutters to add to their collection?

Peas in a Pod Candles- The candle set has two baby design candles, with a single strand of hair on each forming the wick, peering out of a snuggly green pea pod. Too cute.

Her Baby Shower Games


Baby showers are a great way to literally “shower” mommy-to-be’s with presents and love. They are also a fun way to get together with friends and play games. Today I wanted to share a few fun game ideas for you to try at the next baby shower you’re having or hosting.

1. Stroller Derby Baby Shower Trivia Game-  How “baby savvy” are your shower guests? Find out with the game that asks questions like  “How long does it take a woman to change a diaper?” and “How long does it take a man to change a diaper?” The answers are actually quite surprising and extremely entertaining! Just add delightful prizes for the winners and you’re good to go!

2. Baby Pacifier Game- The object of this game is to be the one wearing the most “baby pacifiers”. Throughout the course of the shower anyone who says words related to baby showers or mommies (select your own words) must give up their pacifier necklace/bracelet. This is a twist on a class game played at baby showers for generations. Instead of using safety pins (where holes are left) or diaper pins, use pacifier necklaces.

3. Count the Pacifiers in the Bottle- How many pacifiers in the bottle? The guests may pick up the bottle, but not open it!! The one who guesses the exact number will be awarded with a gift that you supply.

4. Mommy’s Big Belly Party Scratchers- Ok honestly…if you play this game you’re in for some serious fun.  Why is mommy’s belly so big? Did she eat something? Drink something? Or is she really having a baby?

The ideas for games are absolutely endless! I hope you will be able to use a few of these ideas soon! Do you remember the best baby shower you’ve been to? Were games involved? What are your most and least favorite baby shower games?
