Adventures in Hostessing: Pink Flower Baby Shower

On Sunday I hosted a baby shower for my cousin-in-law at our house. She is due with her first baby girl in June. I had so much fun planning and making things for the shower and I can't wait to show you all the projects I have been working on! Here is an overview of the shower, and step by step instructions will follow later in the week. 
Prayer wreath ~ Each person at the shower wrote a short prayer for the baby and I wove the paper into the wreath and then sent it home with mom to hang in baby's room.

Flower pens ~ Used for games, decoration, and shower favor that each guest could take home with them. 

Decorations ~ I used the items that I purchased for her gift did double duty as decorations too. I don't know if you can see them, but the tint socks made a great decoration to hang from the crate paper! 
 They were light enough that the paper didn't sag very much when they were clipped on. 

Food ~ We did a BBQ with our husbands after the "girl time" so we just had some light snacks. Fruit, cheese and crackers, cheese cake cups, and brownie bites. 

Games~ We played Baby Bingo but you only needed 3 in a row to win, so the rounds went much faster and more people got a chance to win. We also did some nursery rhyme charades and a contest to see who could put a diaper on a stuffed animal the fastest. 
*If anyone is looking for baby shower games I can provide more detail about these 3 that we played. 
So there you have it! Pink Flower Baby Shower!
Later in the week I will be posting about the 
Prayer Wreath
Flower Pens
and 
Cheese Cake Cups 
(they are gluten free)

Happy Monday!
