A Shower For Her Belly

My mom, sister's and I threw my sister-in-law's belly a baby shower on Saturday. I don't know about you but I LOVE planning parties! I've always wanted to go all out on a party but this time we only had a week to plan so we did the best we could.


I found these adorable invitations at Zurchers so we based the party on the "Mod Mom Baby Shower" theme.

Starting with the best part, the table. This was so much fun! The frames, lotion, and candles were prizes for the winners of the games we played.

My baby sis called my confetti idea an "unnecessary mess". Come on what's a party table without cute, shiny, pink and blue baby confetti?

A big pile of stinky donkey doodoo that's what! So the confetti stayed :)

And my favorite part? Those fricken cute mini baby bottles! I found 40 of these empty pink & blue baby bottles and filled them with cute tiny pastel colored candy pearls. I put the baby bottles, blue wrapped mints and some other candy in the little bags for the party favors.

The punch bowl was all my mom and baby sis's doing, they filled it with "Special Water".

No "Special Water" does not mean Rum, Vodka, or Tequila. "Special Water" is just what our family calls LEMON WATER. C'mon this was a baby shower people!

Our lovely congratulations sign.

Here is the mother-to-be, well mother-to-be for the 3rd time I guess:

As you can see, my sis-in-law is always dressed fashionably with her makeup and accessories adorned to a T which is why I thought the "Mod Mom" baby shower theme would be perfect for her.

Here is the Father-to-be (for the 1st time!) playing with his cute nephew, he's gonna be a great Dad!

(Pay no attention to the HUGE growth on my brother's head, his wife must have hit him with a baseball bat or somethin)

Wanna know the BEST thing about Baby Showers? The BABIES!

This picture is the cutest! This is my nephew smoochin on my cousin's baby girl, Awwwwwww!

Babies Galore! My mom and I were in Heaven, I don't think we put a baby down for more than 5 minutes.

Here they are, the rest of the party planners. Mom, lil sis and baby sis. I'd like to publicly thank my lil sis for all the hard work, time and effort she put into making this baby shower happen, oh wait, all she did was show up...an hour late.

Never mind.

While opening presents, my sis-in-law had to explain to my brother that the presents were for the baby, not for him! He cried a little but got over it (I think that's where the baseball bat came into play.)

It was so great to see all my aunts and cousins on my Mom's side that I haven't seen foreva!

Ok, for all of you bored out of your minds, let me end here with pics of all the girls from both sides.

Sorry this picture is blurry and crappy because my brother was the one that took the photo. But here are the girls on my side of the fam.

And here are the girls on their side of the fam. (Notice good picture quality because I was taking the photo :)

Notice the beautiful woman in the center of the photo, well if you read this post here, than you might want to know that she is the grandmother who got the tattoo. Thank you all for the cute baby name ideas, I will soon reveal what baby X-Rycker is going to be called!

Awww, what a sweet family! I love the confetti too, so I side with you! Lol.

I can't wait until my brother and his wife have a baby. I SO want to be an aunt! (Would love to be a Mom too, but that's in God's hands, and Greg's. Lol)

Okay...the above was me trying to type "Super Cute!" but I was too busy watching The Office and the above came out instead and then I almost deleted it but thought it was pretty funny!

Love the theme! I agree when men taking pictures sometimes it isn't the BEST quality picture! I know my husband is that way!

and your sis-n-law looks AWESOME for being so close to her due date!
