Star-Themed Baby Shower!


Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star Baby Shower | Through Clouded Glass


Last weekend I threw my sister a baby shower. For those new readers out there, my sister is pregnant with her first baby, a BOY!  My first nephew!

When I first thought about throwing her a shower I knew I wanted to do a  cute theme, but I needed something cost-effective. So I went on a hunt and finally settled on a "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" theme!  It ended up being perfect because it was easy to do a lot of cute decorations, without having to spend a ton of money on custom pieces.  I made the invitations and decorations myself, and the star shapes were easy to incorporate into the food. 

Overall, I really like the way it turned out!  Thank goodness for my mom and cousin though - they came over to help me clean.  There is no way I could have pulled the rest of it together without their help!  And my family pitched in sandwiches, salads, etc. to round out the food - it was a team effort, for sure!

Without further ado, here are some pictures!

(I made stars out of scrapbook paper and also used some gold star ornaments I bought.)

 We played several different games, including the string-measuring game (pictured above), "break the water" with ice cubes and plastic babies, the clothespin game (a baby shower classic for our family), a drawing contest (drawing a baby with the paper on top of your head), and a baby item memory game!

Overall I think the shower was as success!  I can't wait to meet my sweet nephew - I'm pretty sure he's going to be pretty much adorable.  Only a couple more months at the most!
