Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice, that’s what Kacie’s Baby Shower was made of.
We had such a fun time running with this theme for her shower, using a pink and brown color scheme for the decor. From pink and brown tissue paper pom poms, to pink polka-dot balloons, to pink hydrangeas in mason jars wrapped with brown ribbon…
When it comes to baby girls, there’s never too much pink.
My personal favorites though were the “Baby Girl Reading Sugar & Spice Mix” favors, complete with pink gingham cloth tied with brown ribbon. These were custom made by Custom Love Gifts on Etsy.
Oh, and my co-host, Laci, flew from Raleigh to Baltimore with her handmade diaper cake in her carry on. That’s friendship dedication folks! (Not available on Etsy, though it arguably should be ;))
Lets talk games! Laci and I decided to stick with two games, one being the “Don’t Say Baby” game that is played throughout the shower. I stole this idea from Sara’s Nautical Baby Shower, and it was as funny as ever watching guests get more and more competitive as the afternoon went on, just waiting for someone to trip up and utter that little four-letter word.
For the second game, it was “Guess That Baby Food.” Guests broke up into teams, and had to taste/sniff test 5 jars of baby food. Guesses were written down, and points were awarded for each correct ingredient a team guessed (i.e. two points if they only said Apple/Pear for Apple/Pear/Banana).
We laughed, we
cried gagged, we all vowed to never feed our babies that crap. The winning team got to steal two pins each from any other guest at the party. And sticking with the Sugar & Spice theme, the 3 guests who had the most pins at the end of the day took home a box of Coconut Macaroon Cookie mix tied with ribbon and a wooden spoon. Sadly, I forgot to take a picture 😦
Oh, and PS: I love the photo above because Kacie (right corner) clearly heard someone say “Baby” from across the room. Get it girl!
When all was said and done, we had a perfectly lovely afternoon celebrating this beautiful Mama-to-Be and the upcoming arrival of her sweet little princess. We can’t wait to meet you little girl!
