Total Basset Case: Let's Have a Shower!

Let's Have a Shower!

This past weekend I had the absolute pleasure of helping throw a baby shower for one of my best friends.  Our group of friends has been together for a very (awesomely) long time and we have covered just about every stage of life together.  However seeing these girls become moms is one of my absolute favorite stages.  Though staying drinking and dancing our faces off on the weekends in college was also pretttty great.

Full disclosure, I forgot to take the memory card for my camera so the following are all iPhone, I know.

We divided up the duties for the shower and everything came together beautifully.  
I was in charge of games and a few decorations, I had a great time gathering everything together.

I wanted to do a mix of a group game and then a couple of ones that guests could play at their leisure.
For the group game we played baby shower Price is Right.
It ended up turning out SO cute and was so easy to do.
To put it together I grabbed a really cute basket from Marshalls and the other goodies from Target.
I spent some time perusing the baby aisles at Target one day and picked up the following:
body wash
bottle brush
butt paste 
I then created a price sheet for guests to fill out and then total up their items.  And just like the Price is Right, the closest without going over, won!

For the 'at your leisure' games I set up a cookie jar with animal cookies in them and had guest guess how many were in the jar.  Super simple and cute.  

I also used the diapers from Price is Right and asked guests to write funny late night messages to the parents on the front of the diapers.  Again, very easy!
All in all we had a great, great time!  The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out and catching non stop chatting.

Great, simple to put together game ideas!! Love them. I will keep those in mind. What kind of camera do you use? I am interested in getting a new one sometime and just started asking people what their reviews are. :)
