After throwing this together, I realized this was my first baby event that I hosted. Not sure how other Baby Sprinkles go either, but I thought the whole thing went pretty well. Just next time put the date on the first set of invites!!! =D Oops on my part. I blame my pregnancy - seriously where does your brain go!?
Here's the invitation I made. I took pieces of different wording from different invites I found online. The last line of the poem, I made up myself =D
She really likes the color purple so I coordinated that color with her invite along with boy colors. I made a couple variations of the invite some with gray background, some with blue background and others also had different diaper sizes to bring.
First we ate some food that I made: Banana Cake with choice of Lemon Frosting or Cream Cheese Frosting (Lemon tastes super good - you'd be surprised!), Lemon Cherry Coffee Cake (no there's no coffee in it; that's what they call it since people eat with coffee) and we drank pink lemonade.
We played some little party games that I found at the Dollar Store. They were quick little ones as a time filler.
One was just Take a Guess on when the baby would be born and how big he will be.
The others were Finish the Rhyme, TV and Movie Kids, and Name Meanings. None of these games I had played before so I thought it would be pretty fair. (I've been to so many baby showers that I've become really good at the games and usually always win at least one prize =D).
I didn't really decorate either since it was at her house, just brought some balloons. One that said It's a Boy and 2 white star balloons.
Has anyone else hosted a baby shower or baby sprinkle? I'd love to see other ideas. I have lots of pregnant friends right now!
