Rachel's Baby Shower
After years of being amazing surrogate Uncle and Aunty to all my kids Michael and Rachel are having a baby of their own. I am so excited about the birth of this little baby.
Rachel's sister in laws are triplets and organised with me to host a baby shower for Rachel.
Rachel was so overwhelmed by the whole surprise and there were tears of joy everywhere :)
As guests arrived I gave them a baby pin to wear. If they heard anyone say the word Baby then they could take their pin. At the end of the baby shower the person with the most pins won a prize.
Guests were also given a baby in ice. The first person to yell 'My Waters Have Broken' won a prize also.
I was lucky enough to host a baby shower for my sister in law last year so most of the games I already had but altered them to work for Rachel's baby shower.
We played Baby Left Right Game, Baby Trivia, Baby Pictionary, The Price is Right and Baby Food Tasting.
To start the baby shower I played the Left Right Baby Game. A small parcel was passed around the circle of Rachel's friends. I read out a small story and if you heard Left or right the parcel had to be passed in that direction. When the story finished the person holding the parcel won the gift.
This was extremely funny game to watch but everyone did so well.
The things had to draw were all baby related objects.
Next we played Baby Trivia.
If the guests could answer the questions Rachel got to open a Rubber Duckie Bag filled with baby gifts.
The bags were labelled BABY SHOWER
B - Booties
A - Alphabet Blocks
B - Baby Blanket
Y - Yellow Duckies
S - Swaddle
H - Hair Brush and Comb
O - Onesie
W - Washers
E - Ear Thermometer
R - Rattles & Record Book
Baby Food Tasting
I bought 5 cans of baby food and took the labels off.
Each guest had to guess the flavour of the baby food to win a small prize. Some of the flavours were quite hard to guess and when everyone knew what they had been testing they were not keen to let Rachel use these all offering to cook fresh veges for the baby to be :)
They had a list of baby products that they had to write a price for. Closest person with the total spent at Countdown won a prize.
He is absolutely gorgeous and I'm proud to be one of his Aunties
