Baby Shower Ideas

This week on "Show Us Your Life" she is hosting the topic of Baby Shower Ideas. Unfortunately I do not have any digital pictures of my baby shower that are easy to get to so I will just tell you about them.

My SIL Casey and cousin Jana and Aunt Rachel put together a beautiful jungle theme shower for me back last October. We had the shower at my mom and dad's church and it was so nice. Since I live in Miami, FL I had to travel to Alabama for the shower. Many people just gave me clothing and small items that I could fit in a suitcase to take back with me.

One thing that was very special was something that my Aunt Pat made. She made a diaper wreath and it was so cute. She wrapped a Styrofoam wreath with diapers and then put rubber bands around the outside to keep them on tight. Then she put pacifiers, lotions, soaps, and a brush in the rubber bands along with blue ribbons and bows. I used that wreath as a decoration at the hospital. You were supposed to hang it on the door but I was afraid someone would take it so I just hung it in the room with me so I could look at it all I wanted to.

The wonderful teachers at my husbands school actually surprised him with a baby shower. They told me that they were planning a shower for him and it was a surprise. That was the hardest secret I have ever had to keep. I came up with some lame excuse to take him to school that day and then left...drove around the block and came back and snuck in the school only to surprise him even more that I was there. It is always good to remember the husband when your planning a baby shower.


  1. Do you still have the wreath? Or did you use it all? i know we used all of our supplies from our diaper cake!

    It definitely was nice having a daddy shower. Did your husband enjoy his shower?

  2. That's a neat surprise for your husband! I would have a hard time keeping something like that form my hubby, too.

  3. What a great surprise for your hubby! That diaper wreath sounds adorable, what a great idea :) Thanks for visiting my blog, and thank you for sharing your shower details!

  4. My cousin had a diaper wreath at her baby shower... I betcha yours was real cute... What a suprise for your hubby! How cute is that... :0)
