Now that we’ve covered the favors and the decorations, we should probably discuss the shower activities. This is usually the part of a baby shower I despise, to be honest. I think games can be contrived and the focus should really be on friends and the food. My friend and co-host Meaghan agreed so we kept the activities to a minimum.
We did do the Guess the Belly Size with string thing, though.
We mostly sucked at the guess the belly business. I was particularly (offensively) off with my estimate. #sosorrykaty
Aside from the string game, we spent the bulk of our time stuffing our faces with finger sandwiches while doing arts and crafts.
Meaghan and I bought fabric paints and white onesies and did the whole “Make Finn Some Custom Threads” thing.
I think they came out pretty well.
In addition to the onesie bit, we also put together a blank alphabet book in a binder so the guests could make Finn his first alphabet book. Each page represented a different letter and the guests signed their drawings.
And this is sorta how it came out.
OK, more on the food situation later. I need to get back at that NyQuil. It is everything right now. #imdying
