Receiving his awards
Funny thing, all 6 trophies went to 3 boys. They each won one for speed and one for design.
I had looked everywhere for some little birds like these and could not find anything! Lanae is like me when it comes to party planning, so she totally understood my dismay when I couldn't find the perfect birds. She ended up making these adorable birds out of felt the night before the shower. She had planned on using them for her daughter's room afterwards (which happens to be birds and birdhouses). It worked out perfectly! I was so happy when I saw them. They were exactly what I was looking for. They actually are just like the birds that were on the invitations. Speaking of the invitations, here they are below. Oh, also, I had planned on growing wheat grass to stick them in, but totally forgot until it was too late! I was so sad! Oh well, this grass worked just as well I guess.
Since you can't really read it, it says:

Lanae's sister made these adorable invitations and then sent them out. Seriously, the picture does not do them justice. They were the cutest invitations ever! Notice the cute little bird paper along the top. It went perfectly with the bird/garden theme.
Views of decorations. I had wanted to make some pompom things to hang around, but I thought they'd be hard to make and expensive to buy. But Lanae ended up finding instructions on how to make them. We made a few of them together and then I ended up making 10 more later. It was actually really fun making them. I love that Lanae had a great variety of cute maternity photos that I was able to use as part of the decor. On the clothes line I was going to have 2 vintage pillowcase dresses on it that I was to make for Lanae, but I ran out of time, so she had to get them after instead. I ended up just using my samples of the dresses, pantaloons, and diaper covers I used to make and sell.
The food table. I used some birds and birdhouses from Lanae's daughter's room to put around with the food and throughout the rest of the rooms. I'm so glad she had so many things I could use.
This is the game table. We played three games. We tried to keep them simple and quick. The first was they would get a clothespin pinned on them when they first arrived. They couldn't say "cute" or "awww" or they would get it taken away. The person with the most at the end of the shower would win the prize. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. It made me realize how much I saw "awww"! The second game was we had little plastic babies frozen in ice cubes. The first person to have their baby melted out of the ice cube, or their "water break", won the prize. The last game was we melted 6 different candy bars in a diaper for each and they had to guess which diaper was what candy bar. I couldn't get over how much the candy bars seriously looked like real baby poop! It was so gross, but so hilarious. The person with the most right would win.
Since this was a mostly bring diapers instead of gifts shower, I had to make some diaper cakes. I love making them. They're so easy and make such fun decorations.
Then Lanae opened her gifts. That's the part I always love! :)
I had so much fun putting this shower together with two of my dearest friends. I'm so glad to have them both in my life!
