Baby shower ideas

My friend Theresa’s baby shower was a few weekends and it was too cute. She is having a girl which makes it EXTRA fun for me (because I have three boys).

Emily and I revealed that we were the baby secret storks at the shower! Read more about that here: xoxo, the storks.

I made these perfectly baby pink rice krispies using strawberry marshmallows and sprinkles.

And this fluffy baby pink punch that was ever so tasty. 1 can pineapple juice, 2 liter bottle of ginger ale and scoops of raspberry sherbet  The trick is to only keep the pineapple juice cold and not the ginger ale for the perfect punch temperature. Didn’t it turn out just perfectly baby-ish and pink!!?

I also made little vanilla wafer cookies dipped in white chocolate and pink sprinkles. I really wanted to make pink things but these turned out looking a little like santa hats. Opps.

Not pictured: I made some sushi sandwiches for the momma to be because she loves sushi and obvs hasn’t been able to have it. Used Tastefully Simple’s Spinach and Herb dip mix with a little mayo, on a slice of bread with the crusts cut off. Stuck a slice of cucumber, ham, and swiss cheese in it and rolled like you would a sushi roll. Slice and add a toothpick to each one.

My sister-in-law did the baby food tasting game and made these cutsie little mason jars.

So for the past 8 months, my friend Emily and I have been playing the very important role of “the storks”. Our friend Theresa is pregnant with a baby girl and we decided to leave her secret little presents on her doorstep throughout her pregnancy, signing them, the storks. Here are some of the gifts ideas that we did…[so sorry for the quality of the pics, I didn’t think to take pictures with my good camera before dropping them off :) ]

First a pregnancy calendar to introduce ourselves.

Get it? Flutter. It would have been way cooler with a BUTTERFLY but we couldn’t find one.

Morning sickness cures!

After the loss of her sweet grandpa.

Our guess before the big gender reveal party! We really thought it was going to be a girl for the record…but we had told her that so many times that we HAD to guess a boy to throw her off even more.

Whoops we were wrong. But not really.

Again….get it?

Then we finally revealed our identities are her baby shower. We wrapped up a pretty pink plush stork and sent this cute little poem along with it. {Emily did the poem & research behind the stork which turned out to be religious and adorable}

Here is the note we included: The legend of the stork

She didn’t know it was us! yay! We had to be really sneaky…one time I drove past her house 7 different times and her car was there every time so I couldn’t drop it off until I knew she was gone. Talk about feeling like a creeper. Another time we thought she was onto us, we had my husband drop off a gift at her house while we were out with her. Muahaha.
