My sister-in-law and I recently hosted a baby shower for a good friend who is a HUGE Detroit Tigers fan. She and her husband travel to see the Tigers play several times a summer and the baby boy’s room is even decorated with a large baseball mural, so this seemed to fit them perfectly!
We started with a navy and orange color scheme, incorporating orange Gerbera Daises, which coincidentally were the mom-to-be’s favorite flower (love it when that happens!) and baseball themed accessories. For the centerpieces, I stacked two vases on top of one another, attached them together with sticky putty and covered up the seam with wide ribbon. I added custom circles to each side of the vases for an extra pop. Just the top vase held water and the daisies, allowing the baseballs to stay dry. The Cracker Jacks served as favors.
I LOVED the activity we chose to do – baby’s first alphabet book! My SIL is very into scrapbooking, so she brought along a bunch of her supplies and we each made a letter page (okay, I definitely made more than one, but who’s counting?!?). These will be laminated and bound for a memorable book.
Overall, the shower was a huge success! Looking forward to meeting Baby any day now!
