From Cassidy... I recently had my baby shower this past June and took some maternity photos 4th of July weekend. I am by no means an event planner, but have a love affair with planning big life events, so my baby shower was no exception. I'm fortunate to have many beautiful and talented women in my life who were willing to let me have a huge say in the theme and creativity of the shower, but who were also able to make it all happen! The theme was "chic carnival," complete with a cotton candy machine, DIY cupcake station, "Make a bow" craft table, and miniature carnival food :) The whole shower is filllllled with DIY projects!
For a game, my cousin made the most adorable paddles with images of my husband and I as babies on them. My mother and mother-in-law shared funny stories of my husband and I as babies, and the guests had to guess who the stories were about! We had a non-alcoholic drink option entitled "Mommy's mocktail" and a spiked drink option entitled "Daddy's stiff one" ;)
