This weekend, my friends and I had a baby shower for Beezus5 who is having a baby in January-ish. I think that the most important thing about party planning is trying to make it personalized to the individual. Beezus5 likes reading so we had a book themed baby shower (with some owls and Harry Potter and Fall stuff thrown in there too).
I kind of like making stuff, so I thought it would be fun to force people to make a craft at the baby shower. We made an alphabet book for B5 and her baby that also doubled as a guest book so one day mini B5 will know who came to her mom's baby shower.
I bought a photo album and made a page for each letter of the alphabet (by adding alphabet sticker). Then we had each person draw or color a page and sign the back. I was concerned that some people would not want to draw (or think they were not good enough at drawing) so I found some alphabet pictures at the Dollar Tree that people could just color if they did not want to draw.
Have you ever been to a baby shower where you had to make a craft?
Don't you wish you had your own ABC book?
