Baby Shower Calendar

Thanks to pinterest, I came across a hand drawn 'Guess when the baby will be born' calendar by It's An Occasion.  Seriously, what a brilliant idea.

I knew I wanted to incorporate this idea but I didn't want mine to be hand drawn so...

Using Calendar Wizard in Word, I created a custom calendar.  Calendar Wizard allows you to completely customize your calendar by selecting fonts, colors and text.  Ehow has a great step by step tutorial, if you are unfamiliar with Calendar Wizard.


I decided to add a pink outline around the baby's due date so the guests knew when science predicted the baby to be born.  You can do this by inserting a text box and selecting pink as the shape outline.


When I had the calendar customized to the point I was happy with, I printed it out on 8 1/2 by 11 paper. I took that paper into Kinko's and enlarged and printed it on 12 x 14 card stock.


During the shower, guests used the baby feet stamp and the pink ink {pink because they are having a girl} and filled in their guesses.

Such an easy addition to any baby shower that will be sure to have a BIG impact.
