Butterfly Shower Activities and Miscellanea
OK, this is the last of the baby shower posts… You can see the previous ones here, here, and here. We had a couple fun activities planned, and I thought the time was filled very well! First, we started painting some plain onesies with fabric paint, but we had to do it in shifts because my table was so small.
We played two games… a lying/mom-instinct game (Who has the baby spoon?). It… wasn't as fun as I had hoped, so maybe I should have looked up some rules instead of trying to wing it! We also did a game that's usually titled something along the lines of "How well do you know Mommy?" but I thought it was better named as "Who Will Baby Be?" Basically, I made a form with different attributes her daughter could have, and gave it to Sarah ahead of time. She filled out which attributes she wanted her daughter to get from herself or her husband (or neither!), and then everyone else had to guess what she filled out. I thought it was fun—and then I handed out prizes for the top two, so I'm pretty sure they thought it was fun, too, haha. Here's the form I made for it:
We also sat around eating and chatting… Duh!
OK, now to the miscellanea, and here is where I show you two of my top three favorite things I made!
(Sorry for the bad quality, this is before I learned how to properly use a nice camera!)
I got some frosted vinyl with my Silhouette, and this is the first time I pulled it out to play with. Instead of having to just remember which cup is yours, or pull out the sharpies, I got clear plastic cups and made frosted vinyl nametags for them! This is the idea I'm third-most proud of, haha. Giving you the cut file probably wouldn't be helpful, since you won't have the same people at your potential party… But all you have to do is choose a neat font, type out the names, merge the letters together, and then merge in a butterfly or something if you want.
And, my "crowning" achievement… When I thought of this, I started giggling at work, and had to call up Husband and tell him about it, because it was so awesome!
Yes, I made a huge crown for Sarah to wear! She thought it was hilarious. Here's the cut file if you want it for yourself:
I just glued some of the leftover green sparkly butterflies (see the Baby Shower Text cut file) around it. Fun!
