Then, head over to the baby section of your local retail store and pick up an assortment of baby lotions, baby wipes, and other newborn necessities for your mom-to-be.  Put all your store bought accessories together in your container and cradle in a few handmade “diaper babies” for a fun and practical gift!

The kicker is, this gift also looks perfect as a table centerpiece at the baby shower!

Here’s What You’ll Need for Each Baby:

  • Disposable Diaper
  • Baby Washcloth
  • Baby Sock
  • Permanent Marker or googly eyes
  • Tape
  • Baby Headband or Pacifier Clip (optional)

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Roll the diaper into a cylinder. Top with a baby sock to hold closed.
  2. Fold a baby washcloth in half, then wrap around the diaper. Use a piece of tape to secure in place.
  3. Wrap the “baby” with a baby headband or decorate with a pacifier clip (optional).
  4. Use a permanent marker to draw a little face on the diaper.
  5. Create a gift basket with the remaining diapers from the package and other baby items, such as lotion, powder, diaper ointment, baby wash, etc.

Brews & Bowling Baby Shower

I recently found out that another group of my friends are pregnant all at the same time.  Seems like it happens that way, in groups.  When we had our LO, there was a group preggo with me as well.  So, in the spirit of things, I started looking for Baby Shower ideas.  I came across this awesome theme on Hostess with the Mostess, she’s been right up my alley lately.

You can’t forget about Dad!  Either throw him his own party, or get everyone together and have a mixer.  I know a few people that have done “Brews and Diapers” parties for the men-only crowd – keeps things simple and the guys don’t have to wade through aisles of overwhelming baby stuff to buy a gift.  “Dad-chelor” parties are a pretty big deal lately, so join in on the fun!

Brews & Bowling Baby Shower: A Celebration into Parenthood

The main goal of a party is of course to celebrate the guest of honor, but it’s also important to make sure your guests are having fun as well. Which is why I love this Brews & Bowling Baby Shower: A Celebration into Parenthood, which was beautifully photographed by Angela Bartunek of Aster & Olive Photography and put together by the couples’ family & friends! The laid back vibe combined with retro decor creates the perfect atmosphere for everyone to have a total blast catching up, bowling & eating some delicious, non-fussy food (who doesn’t love sliders + beer?!)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Teal tissue paper pinwheel welcome sign backdrop, paper chain links & polka dot garlands
– Baby blue painted bowling trophy food stand centerpieces + a retro teal & red tablescape
– Old school treats like Cracker Jacks & swirl lollipops + simple cupcakes & soda pop
– A retro bowling alley invitation, chalkboard signs + candy bag party favors

PARTY DETAILS as told by Angela
:

As an afternoon celebration for parents-to-be, Charity & Ben, many of their family and friends came together at Mahall’s 20 Lane Bowling Alley in Lakewood (Cleveland) Ohio. The couples’ shower included open bowling to keep guests engaged and entertained, a few heart felt well-wishes from some of their stellar parent friends, lots of wonderful food, sweets and an open bar for everyone but Charity! Best part of all? Charity and Ben decided to open their baby gifts at home and let their guests truly just enjoy the party; everyone was so thankful.
