This spring I threw a shower for one of my dear friends. She has grown up with a love, and, during some years of her younger life, an obsession with rubber duckies. I saw it very fitting to celebrate the arrival her of first little ducky with this shower.
Below is the ducky on the invitation. Feel free to use it. I had it printed on photo paper at Walmart.
Our menu included; mini croissant sandwiches with turkey, sprouts and condiments, cut fruit, a delicious pasta salad, pineapple punch and yellow and pink M&M's. I got the M&Ms from the Easter bag and took out all the other colors.
I borrowed all the ducks I could get my hands, bought some from the dollar store, and got 3 cute pink ones from Walmart. The ducks got put in the punch, on the food table, and my favorite touch, in glass fish bowls with styrofoam balls that looked like bubbles. I added a "spa" theme by using towels as decor and bath salts as party favors.
Baby shower games tend to get a little cheesy so I kept it simple.
Guess the Mommy's Belly Size: Using string and scissors each person cut off a piece the length that they believed her belly to be. I didn't let anyone wrap it around themselves, its more fun that way. Some were very short and others too big. We had 2 who were almost exact and one who was right on the dot. She received a basket full of fun bath stuff.
Baby Name Game: It started with everyone coming up with a first and middle name for the baby. I told them to consider it a suggestion for the mom. After about 2 minutes I told them using all the letter in the name they chose (including the last name) to come up with as many words as they could. The winner did an excellent job with over 30 words on her list. She also received a basket of bath stuff.
