Lil' Slugger Baby Shower

Today I am going to share some photos from something I actually had or took the time to do myself! This isn't a post from someone else's blog.
Tonight Tristina, Char and I threw my sister Lani a baby shower. We were deciding between a little man shower and a lil' slugger theme. I think we made the right choice for these two. We did a concessions stand with Sliders, mini hot dogs, nachos with real nacho trays, and a french fry bar (didn't seem to get a photo of any of those), mini egg salad sandwiches, (Grrr! I couldn't find my edible marker to make the ball lace lines!) and a baseball diamond fruit tray with fruit dip.
Over at the candy concessions we had salted peanuts, personalized labeled Hershey's nuggets, Boston baked beans, kettle corn, buttered popcorn, licorice, chocolate covered raisins, gummy coke bottles, Baby Ruth, and Double Bubble.
At the Game table we did 4 activities that people could do as they wished. (I was sick of telling people at showers in the past to play my organized games when most people just wanted to chat and mingle.) We had a "What's in the Bag" game where people would guess the contents of the 7 white bags, Guess how many Double Bubble are in the container, Unscramble the baby words and write an encouraging note on the diaper to Lani and Hock for those late night diaper changes.
Then we had bags of Cracker Jacks with either a big Baby Ruth or Big League Chew for everyone as they left.
All in all, I think it was a pretty successful night. My brother-in-law was quite impressed and appreciative of my ability to throw a baseball party despite my lack of enthusiasm and knowledge for baseball.
Thanks Char and Tristina, I had lots of fun!

  2. This is fabulous Lil' Slugger Baby Shower. I really loved the details of this entire shower. I also want to organize such cute party for my sister that is going to be mom soon. I would like to book her favorite Chicago event space for her bash.
