Rock-A-Bye Baby Shower

30/05/2013 | 0

You Mean The World To Me Baby

 

Over the beautiful, sunny bank holiday weekend (where has that weather gone?!), myself and a few friends hosted a baby shower. Not liking to do anything the ‘traditional’ way, this baby shower was not only for the girls! We invited the hubby’s and boyfriends along too.

If you’re also hosting an upcoming baby shower, here’s some baby shower ideas, games and a baby shower quiz for inspiration…

 

Being relatively new to the world of baby showers – having only attended a few previously – we were all really excited to be hosting this special event for both the mummy and daddy-to-be. Taking our knowledge and experience of organising hen parties (obviously minus a few elements, like plastic willy straws etcetera!), we knew we wanted lots of pretty, some fun games and above all, we wanted the future parents to feel really special; all this without alienating the guys by going all-out girly.

 

Not knowing the sex of the baby, we went for a unisex theme having found a cute range of teddy bear and rocking horse print products called Rock-A-Bye Baby. See the full collection on notonthehighstreet.com

 

Lovely long lazy lunch

 

A table was booked for our girl/guy group at a restaurant in the West Midlands, a mid-way meeting point. The Beeches Bar & Grill is an attractive Georgian Pub, in the quaint village of Hampton-In-Arden. Fantastic, fresh and tremendously tasty food is served within an inviting and homely atmosphere with views over the surrounding, rolling countryside.

Baby shower balloons lined the table along with favour bags, filled with little sweet treats for each guest.

After lunch (the non-pregnant!) attendees sipped on glasses of refreshing Pimms in the garden. Well, there’s no ‘official’ start time for wetting the baby’s head is there?!
