Goin’ Banana’s For Baby!
Quite the whirlwind, the Baby Shower for my manager ran without a glitch! Okay, maybe one snag which was quickly recovered. On the agenda were 3 shower games which were unique. The first was “Baby Faces”. Guests guessed on pictures of famous people when they were babies. It really got everyone started. The next was “Getting to Know The Mama”. I interviewed the Mother-to-be prior to the shower and tallied up a quiz of sorts about the Mama. Everyone learned a little bit more about the Mama after that game was over and I’m sure guests are still talking about the answers today! The third and final game started before the shower. I placed letters on baby items to keep in count of all that I had then I “strategically” placed these items around the showroom. I also kept a record of where I placed these items so it wouldn’t be difficult if their was something missing. When it came time to start this game, I let everyone stand up in one area, counted to three and they were off. The first person to bring back 5 items won. One minor glitch… Everyone had 2 or 3 items and there were no items left! So I rallied everyone together. Made sure all items were accounted for. Two ladies had (4) items in their hand and one last item was left in the showroom. I had those two ladies go hunting for that last item. The one who found it was the winner. It was quite fun and got everyone in the competitive mood. If anyone does this in the future, I highly recommend you put AT LEAST double of how many people are in attendance. For example, 15 guests have RSVP’d then have AT LEAST 30 items to spread around to find. (Dollar stores are PERFECT to get items for this game)
I do have to say that planning, organizing, executing AND taking pictures on the day of the shower is pretty difficult. There was a guest taking pictures so I hope to get those soon! Below are some of the decor that was splattered around Ferguson’s Showroom where we held this baby shower. Pardon the newbie photography.
