Since the guest of honour was a baby boy, the theme was moustaches and the color green. I made a stencil for moustaches and cut out a bunch, put a hole punch in the middle, and secured them to bendy straws with a small drop of white glue.
I had help putting the shower on from another one of the new mommy's friends. She did an amazing job securing pictures of the baby on water bottles for the guests.
She also took on the responsibility of bringing food. I took pictures of the food tables after the shower, and as you can see, there was so much that the guests hardly made a dent in it!
I had some moustache cookie cutters, so we were able to make some sugar cookies to match the theme!
Here is a picture of the gift table. I made a diaper cake with moustaches on each level, and put some crocheted ribbed booties as the topper. They will fit baby this fall/winter. There are" handlebar" moustaches on either side of the banner above the table. Also on the right side of the table, I put together a door prize for the guests to enter to win. Each entry was $1 and the money went towards babies first bank account.
My accomplice also put together a finger print tree instead of the typical guest book. Something that can be hung in babies nursery!
The shower went amazingly and of course baby slept through the whole thing! But that's ok, because I got to spend the whole previous week with him! Lucky me!
