A Baby Shower For The Little Slugger

As promised, here are the photos from my sister's baby shower. We went with a loose sports theme for "The Little Slugger".

I ordered all of the printables on Etsy, printed them at kinkos, and then cut them out and put everything together at home. It was very easy as long as you have simple tools like a paper cutter, hole punch, tape, etc. The tissue poms and other decorations were made following simple ideas found on pinterest.

My sister made this awesome diaper bike. Isn't it amazing!
Cookies by my talented sister.
Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
Another pinterest inspired creation by my sister!

We played a few simple games, one that involved guessing the size of her pregnant belly with string and another where you had to guess the baby food flavors (It's harder than you'd think!).

Little "helpers".
One of my favorite things that we did was paint onsies for the baby. We bought a variety of sizes and colors, paints, made some freezer paper stencils, and let everyone have at it.

What's going on over there Keri? LOL!
Here are some of the finished products. LOVE them!

Yes, my daughter painted her soon-to-be boy cousin a pink star. That's how we roll.
Pac-Man. My fave.
While the women hung out inside being crafty and awesome the men were outside celebrating the way they know best. With cigars and beer. 

Congratulations Heather and Matt! Can't wait to meet the newest addition to our family!


  1. great pictures of the details. Love the diaper bike and the melon baby surprised me! haha

  2. What are these "printables" you speak of?? I love Etsy but I have no idea what you're talking about! I've never seen these printables. HELP! :)

    Also, Sharon needs to go into a catering/party planning business as she is awesome. She should open a salon with a side room as a party room and then she could cater and decorate for bridal and baby showers. Just a thought. If I had money, I'd invest in her! :)

    1. LOL! That sounds like an awesome business plan to me! :)
