Since it's getting to be baby shower time for all of us--I thought it would be nice to share themes and stuff!
(Oh and just to mention, I am throwing my own baby shower because my husband is military are we're over 1000 miles away from family, and our friends don't have much money)
I just figured out last week that I'd like to have my baby shower "Green Eggs and Ham" themed. Everything is going to be green and orange (Including the cupcakes!!). I wanted to give out favors but didn't want to spend much money on it, so I thought long and hard and came up with this idea::Treat bags filled with popular candy that I could buy in bulk (Fun*Dip, Starburst, and Jolly Ranchers) and a few Crazy Bandz in shapes of animals, all tied with orange and green ribbons. I also wanted everyone to have a little 'reminder' of the baby shower--so I got 1 sheet of white and one sheet of green poster board and made homemade green eggs. On the back I wrote "Thank you for helping Mike and Leah celebrate baby Jamison Alexander on February 19th, 2011" and taped it to the bottom of the candy favors.
For food we're going to have green eggs and ham sandwiches. I'm SO excited about this party, a lot of our friends are coming just to socialize and celebrate the new little one that's going to be joining us soon :D
What games are you planning on playing? What was your theme? This is all so exciting! I cannot believe our little ones are going to be here so soon!
