First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes Details planning BABY SHOWERS!

September 11, 2010


You know that I love weddings and parties. Well, my third love is for babies! When I found out that two of my closest friends were pregnant, I thought, “Baby Shower Time!” What I did not expect was for the baby showers to be in the middle of wedding season….EEEEEK! But we are professionals and here is a little snapshot of what I did.


Christa and Skylor’s MTSU Tailgate Shower

Christa and Skylor are the ULTIMATE Middle Tennessee State University football fans. We knew that even though they were having a girl, that this would be the perfect theme for their couples shower. Invitations were made by our friend Paige. She used stamps and cut outs to design the perfect invite!


For décor we pulled out all our normal tailgate gear! Pompoms, megaphones, tents, and camping chairs were spread both inside and out.


Even though this was a couple’s shower, we decided that games were a must! We had a baby relay race. The guests were split into 2 teams. The first team to complete the following challenges won a prize. (bottles filled with gummy bears)

Round 1: Feed Baby- Must drink 1 ounce from a bottle Round 2: Burp Baby- Someone on the team must burp Round 3: Change Diaper- Someone must put a diaper on another person (towel and safety pins) Round 4: Read to Baby- Books off of the couple’s registry were used for this Round 5: Feed Baby- Feed someone on the team an entire jar of baby food Round 6: Sort Laundry- match baby socks Round 7: Change diaper- take the diaper off the other person and put it on someone new Round 8: Sing Baby to Sleep- entire team must sing “Twinkle, Twinkle”


DONE! All the items used were cleaned and given to the Mommy and Daddy.


This was a great shower! Everyone had a blast! To go with the sports theme we had a baby betting pool going. Each person picked and date and time that the baby would be born.


Claire Allison Morgan was born Sept. 2, 2010 at 11:21pm. She is so precious! The winner of the pool was Casey Reese, our next Mommy to Be!



The menu featured all of our favorite tailgate foods! Yes, we even had a keg of beer for Daddy to be and the non preggo guests!


MENU: Smoked Wings from Slick Pig in Murfreesboro Burger Sliders (P.S. ALWAYS remember to check the gas tank on your grill BEFORE a big party! Oops!) Wing Ding Dip Rotel Dip Veggie Platter Baked Beans Cup Cake Tower from Publix Lemonade Beer!

Chris and Casey’s Airplane Shower

Chris and Casey told us that their baby boy was going to have an airplane room so we decided to play off of that. We knew this couple loved sweets so we included a candy buffet (so popular at weddings) as a favor for all of the guests.


Diaper Wreaths are the newest HOT items I am making for showers now!


Menu: (late afternoon shower)

Cheese, sausage, and fruit platter

Pigs in a Blanket

Veggie Platter

Cake from Publix


We had two traditional baby shower games. We played memory with items off the registry and we had guests guess how big around mommy and daddy’s was. Both were fun and gave us a giggle!


Patrick Henry Reese was born the following Thursday after the shower. We was a few weeks early and is the tiniest little guys! Mom and Baby are both home and enjoying the new airplane room!


Congrats to both families! We had a blast and can’t wait to watch these little ones grow. Who knows, maybe one of them will become the next “Aisle Runner!”



Gotta run and work on some weddings!
