Welcome to a Literary Theme Shower for Baby Girl! #babyshower

Obviously since this baby shower was for Modette we’ve been meaning to share it for a while! It’s funny how a big stack of digital photos can be so intimidating, and it just got lost in all the new-baby/getting-back-to-life shuffle. It’s really too bad because it was a STUNNING party that Aimée and my friend Dana put together for me!

We recently shared all the party details over at One Charming Party, but I didn’t want any of you to miss out.

Mommy to Be was Craving Capn Crunch Berries so have a Cereal Bar #babyshower

While pregnant, I had a pretty sensitive stomach, but I was totally craving Cap’n Crunch Berries. I love how they centered the party food around the cereal.

BUMP! Baby Shower

We threw a fun baby shower for our good friend who was expecting her first boy (she already has three girls). The party had a transportation theme and was a total surprise to Dana — we got her good! She thought we were having a small, belated birthday party for her husband Ryan. Aimee and I went all out and it turned out fabulous.

I borrowed the “Bump” sign from a local traffic-safety company. At first when I called, they didn’t know what to do with my request to rent just one sign. When I explained that it was for a baby shower, they forwarded my call to a manager who thought it sounded so funny that he just let us borrow the sign for the day. We brought cookies when we returned the sign, and I think they were pretty happy with the deal.

Traffic cone luminaries.

We had road signs everywhere…

…yes, even in the bathroom!

Traffic Light Flair buttons were the fun party favors!

Lots of yummy food including a “submarine sandwich” with pinwheel frills on top.

“Falling Rock” potato chips served in a plastic dump truck toy along with ranch “Dip” — we had a lot of fun coming up with the road-sign food labels.

Sea-Schooner gelatin cups made with Berry Blue Jell-o (it can be tough to find, but we picked ours up at Wal-Mart), an orange slice and toothpick paper sail.

The “Construct Your Own Soda” bar was a fun addition to the party. We had step-by-step instructions explaining to guests how to make an italian soda.
