Oh Baby! (No, Not Mine)

Girl baby shower

Dear readers, I need your assistance.  My sister-in-law is having a baby.  I have been asked to help plan the shower.  I want it to be fun.  I want people to have a great time. I might even want my sister-in-law to shed a tear at how great her shower was.   But mostly, I want some ideas.  That is where you come in. 

 I know from reading your blogs, the kind of talented, creative people my readers are.  So tell me, what makes a good baby shower?  What are some fun games you have played?  What kind of food should I have?  What are good party favors?  Help (insert picture of white flag waving here)!   I have  complete confidence in the fact that I have no idea what I am doing here:)

A friend of mine just recently hosted a baby shower, too, and she had the cutest idea for party favors. Basically, they were little mason jars filled with popcorn that said so-and-so is about to pop! They're pretty darn cute. Here's a link to her post describing how they did it:

I think it'd be great with something like caramel corn or maybe they all have different flavors of popcorn. Hope that helps!!

Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration! But I went to a 'cute as a button' shower recently....and it was precious! I also went to one recently where we all got decorated wine glasses as our favor {with some cheesy baby quote on a card with them} and the mom-to-be had a HUGE glass that said 'mommy's sippy cup' it was hilarious!

For me the best part about baby showers are the treats and the games.
There's this game that we have done a few times where you buy baby food (the yucky kind). Remove the label from the jar, then have teams feed each other blindfolded.
Whoever finishes first and tells the crowd WHAT kind of food was in the jar wins.
