Rock A-Bye-Baby Shower

Less than 24 hours after Grace's circus party, I was asked to plan...


Erin is my husband's cousin.  When he found out, I was going to plan another party, he looked something like this...


Ok, so he didn't look exactly like that but you get the point.

The shower was really low key, it was during a family reunion and held in my mother in-law's living room.  Easy enough, right?

I decided on a ROCK a-bye-baby theme because the expectant parents love music. 


Using some scrap book paper, I created paper records and spelled out ROCK a bye baby and strung it up.


Remember these custom onesies that I made? 


I strung them up on clothes line.


I also found some Hello Kitty socks that I turned into baby leg warmers.


I loved the idea of using the custom onesies as decorations.


I made some fabric covered Japanese lanterns {thanks to my glue gun, I burned my fingerprints off while making} which we suspended from fishing line.  The pink guitar {a Goodwill find, I stumbled upon a week before the shower} was also suspended with fishing line.


Since the dad to be is both a singer and guitar player, the rock themed baby shower also took on an unofficial guitar theme as well.


I included the same rhinestones from the guitar onesie on the paper guitars and used them as decorations around the room.




And what ROCK themed baby shower would be complete without rock candy.


I also liked the idea of having a band poster promoting the premiere of their baby girl.  Thanks to Poster My World, I was able to design a poster of my own.


And, there were a few games.  'Name That Baby' using only the letters in the mom and dad's first and middle names.


And, guess when the baby will be born calendar.


My favorite touch was still the VIP All Access Passes for the mom and dad to be.


So, even though the parents to be had a great time.  I think for the sake of my marriage, I'll take a break from party planning, at least for another week or two :)

  16. Adorable! hopefully I'll get to throw a baby shower soon (not for me!) and I could use these ideas. Pinning!

    ps- somehow when I say 'pinning" it always reminds me of Charlie Sheen and "winning", weird, but had to share:)
