We're expecting a little niece in December/January time!
My sister was feeling a little down and she's been sick nearly everyday of her pregnancy so we decided to throw her a surprise baby shower, a little early and a little short notice but we made it happen.
As the guests arrived I handed them two pieces of paper, one of which was for their predictions on the baby, including name, weight, arrival date and time, length, hair colour and eye colour. The other piece of paper was for a message to my sister and her partner, which I would later frame and gift to my sister.
Our first game consisted of nappies filled with different crushed chocolate bars and they had to guess what the chocolate bars were, there was one winner that guessed all six chocolate bars and was awarded with a prize of their choice from a selection.
The second game was pin the dummy on the baby, a clear winner was the blue dummy and the lady got to select her prize too.
The last game was guess the baby foods, there were some really simple ones like just peas, but there were also some more obscure ones, not many people guessed many correctly, so we have three joint winners, but two of them worked together so their were two prizes awarded, as two of them were more than happy to share their gin truffles!
The last hour we saw my sister open the gifts and discussed stories and had long conversations about the baby and new parenthood.
My sister was delighted with her baby shower and although we did it on a budget and hired out a hall, it was actually pretty good.
