My dear friend is having a baby in October!! As soon as I found out (months ago) I started planning her shower Smiley. She had always said that she NEVER wanted to have kids. We were all surprised to learn she was pregnant so I thought a "when pigs fly" theme would be perfect for the party!!

Here's a crop from the invitation...


I cut out a whole bunch of flying pigs and hung them around the house. I used lanterns and tissue pom poms to look like clouds.





FOOD!!



Instead of playing games, we made crafts for the baby - headbands and baby blocks!







This is where we did presents. More flying pigs and a Mom banner!



I had a couple of gifts wrapped up that were passed around when the mom-to-be was opening her presents. One was passed 3 to the left whenever she opened something pink, the other was passed 2 to the right when she opened something related to bath time. Here's one of them being passed around.



It was a fun afternoon with good friends and happy wishes for the (almost) new Mom!!

Oh my goodness! What a clever and fun theme! You really nailed it, too. Also, I wish I'd ever been to a baby shower with a big ol' wall o' booze!  Shocked

Cheesy!! Mom-to-be couldn't drink but the rest of us could!! We had rose, mimosas and I made a "panty-dropper" cocktail - 6 beers, a cup of vodka, and a couple containers of frozen raspberry lemonade Smiley.

This looks amazing, Lime! Ooh, I want to borrow your gift passing idea for the shower I'm throwing tomorrow. I'm sure I can find a gift bag somewhere, and I have soap to stuff in it. I'm so glad I saw this tonight, you are a genius!

We're also doing crafts instead of baby shower games, I did that at the last shower I threw and people seemed to like it. Do you have any pics of finished headbands and baby blocks?
