This past Saturday, my friend Lindsay and I had the privilege of throwing a baby shower for our dear friend Mandy! We had so much fun planning a Dr. Seuss themed shower for our principal friend...it seemed like the perfect idea for a fellow literacy lover!! The colors were adorable and the cute ideas endless!
We had a great turn out of family and friends and we sure hope Mandy and baby boy felt incredibly loved and supported! We hosted it at Mandy's house because she has the perfect space for a larger party and it ended up being a great idea because then she didn't have to load up and haul all of her amazing gifts home...they were already there!
Of course we had to take a belly shot! From largest to smallest- I'm due December 16th, Mandy is due Deember 19th, and Lindsay is due March 4th! She finds out what she's having this Thursday!
When we were planning the shower I searched online for ideas and LOVED looking at blogs that had tons of photos of all the little details from the parties they've hosted. It really helped us come up with some creative touches for our own shower! Here are a bunch of pics from the day...
I found this online, printed it, and framed it for Mandy and the baby's nursery! LOVE what it says!
Didn't these banners turn out adorable?
We put Dr. Seuss books all around to add to the decor!
I saw this great idea on another blog too...hanging air filled balloons upside down from the lighting fixture over the food table! Thought it turned out super cute!
The plates matched our theme perfectly!
The yummy food! We did brunch foods which were super simple and easy to prepare! Thanks to everyone who helped out by making a dish to share!
After eating, it was time for gifts and games...
Mandy got SO many cute outfits and necessities for their little one.
We played "The Price is Right" and even found Dr. Seuss pencils and markers, for game playing, in the Dollar Section at Target!
Guests totaling up their prices! The winner was the closest to the total price without going over! And only 1 person did not go over...automatic winner! Ha!
Then we played this Match Game...a baby shower favorite! The categories were: Things in a Diaper Bag, Baby Boy Names that start with B, Baby Foods, and Things you need for Baby Bath Time!
These 2 ladies are both incredible Grandmas and did great at this game! They made a lot of matches! You can tell they spend a lot of time with babies!
And finally, on the way out guests got to take home these little fishy treats as a thank you for blessing us with their presence!
