Hello Mommies,

I just hosted a baby shower for a friend of mine. It was a guys and gals shower. They are having twins. We put together some really tasty eats including wraps, sandwiches, salads, desserts, other finger foods, served wine, sodas and juice boxes for the kids.
Our decor was simple white linnens with yellow flowers and balloons, balloons, balloons.

They are expecting a twin baby boy and girl! Lucky them! So, we took the traditional pink and blue and added a yellow pop. We made giant white daisy ballons with yellow centers and one creative idea we did was making giant pacifiers out of balloons. This is really simple and looks cool.

This photo doesn't really do it justice but you can see a little. We took 16 inch large clear rounds and added a little pink and blue balloon inside to represent the twins. To do this, you put the color inside with a pen and blow it up first then add air to the clear balloon then add the other color stuffing with a pen and Wahla! Then you add the white flower like balloon as the pacifier base and a yellow handle out of a 260Q balloon. Qualatex is the best brand of balloons. Very cute. Lots of comments. Call me if you have questions.

A shower can be full of fun, games and entertainment or very sophisticated. Let the parents to be lead you in choosing a style they will really enjoy. My friend opted to skip the games and focus on the music, food and people. It was a really nice party and the guys felt very comfortable. Let me know if I can help you plan a baby shower. We have lots of great ideas. Remember not to try to go it all alone. That can be really stressful. Feel free to call in some freinds and delegate or let us help you.
