Helping Plan a Baby Shower
My mother, sister’s mother-in-law and I planned a baby shower for my sister who was pregnant with twin girls.
My job was to prepare the games, send out the invites, table top decor and help make some of the food items. I wasn’t too sure what kind of games to do with the guests because I was told by my sister, she didn’t want direct attention.
That is no easy task, she WILL be the center of attention. I figure she just doesn’t want any corny games like to measure her belly or guess her weight. Which, I can relate!
The pic above were the tabletop vase decorations. Sorry about the off colored picture. I meant to retake a picture during the day. Oh, well. You get the idea. The vases are 1/2 filled with mints with pink paper basket stuffing and a pink balloon flower.
All of the items were purchased at the Dollar Store.
Baby Shower Games
Delivering Your Chick
For the first game that I have planned, guest will get an ice cube with a little chick frozen inside. At the beginning of the shower, I will give each guest their own ice cube. The rules are simple you may use any part of your body you’d like to speed up the process of delivering your chick. The first persons chick to be freed must stand up and yell, my water broke!
I wanted to get the little babies to place in the ice cubes but they wouldn’t make them to me in time. That is certainly a wonderful alternative.
Finish Mommy’s Phrase
The second game is finish mommy’s phrase. The guests will have to try and fill in the blanks for 20 words and match mommy’s answers exactly.
Example of her answers:

What Will Mommy Get Bingo
The fourth game will be playing as mommy is opening her presents. Each guest will get a blank bingo card. Before mommy opens her gifts, each guest must fill in the blank spaces with a gift they think mommy will receive. As mommy opens her gifts the guests will across out the ones they have matched. The first, second and third prizes will be a regular, straight line bingo. The last prize will be black out bingo. The prizes will be the tabletop vases I made.
