But, I’ve never had the opportunity to help with a baby shower. Until now.
My lovely aunt is hosting a baby shower for her daughter-in-law, who is expecting TWIN BOYS. (Gasp! Two…boys…together? YIKES!)
But, I moved past my own fear of having two children…at the same time…when she asked me to help plan a killer-banging-one-helluva-time baby shower.
My aunt had already purchased these onesies for the twinsies, so we jumped at the chance to host a “Thing 1, Thing 2” baby shower.
(Are you dying over how adorable these are? If you aren’t, you best go check your pulse. STAT!)
The shower will be the first weekend in September, so we got crackin’. My first stop was – of course – to touch base with my bff Google. I could have sworn I remembered seeing something about a Dr. Suess-themed party. And, Google did not disappoint.
I came upon Stem Parties and her fabulous Thing 1, Thing 2 baby shower. We are definitely sticking to a red, white and turquoise theme, so this gave us great ideas for decor.
And, the invites she made really sparked my imagination.
So, with this theme in my mind, I headed to Michael’s for supplies and put together some “all-that-and-a-bag-of-doritos” invites. Here’s what I came up with (with the above inspiration in mind, of course).
Toot! Toot! (That’s me, tooting my own horn.)
With twins on the mind, I decided to channel my inner Martha and make some more decor. I picked up some tissue paper and made these pom-poms that everyone shows off in blogland. I found packs of tissue paper at Target in the exact colors.
They turned out super cute, and with only $2 of supplies, at that. And, I spent less than 5 minutes on each one. Talk about a simple project. I’m planning to make several more, and the small ones will be nice for napkin “rings.”
I’m still working on a few other decor items, and I will share those soon. We also just might have the most exciting dessert item to go with the theme. Are you dying in anticipation?
What do you think?
Do you have any more ideas for decor, games or food items to really ramp up this theme?
