According to the ancient legend, if you help a friend with a baby shower, you will be the one having it next! At least that’s what happened to my dear friend Elina who organized my baby shower earlier this year and now she is expecting a baby girl!
Baby shower for a pregnant woman is almost the same as a wedding day for the bride – you want it to be perfect! The difference is that when you’re pregnant you have these little guys called hormones going all crazy and it definitely spices it up a bit. Elina’s baby shower was planned to be outside in a beautiful park overlooking Los Angeles, of course you wouldn’t worry about the weather too much living in California but guess what, it was freaking cold and windy! I got scared for a second when I saw momma-to-be ready to cry over the weather and everything not going as planned but everything turned out great!
The set up was beautiful. Cute little flower centerpieces, collection of ultrasound pics and amazing homemade food all came together nicely. We had a lot of fun writing silly messages to future parents on diapers, competing in who’s gonna drink beer out of a baby bottle faster (it’s harder that it seems!), and trying to guess the kinds of chocolates in “poopy” diapers. If you were wondering what games to play at a baby shower, take a note!
Even though it was cold outside, it was a very warm day filled with lots of love and laughter. I am so excited for Elina and her husband! And hey, who knows, maybe it’s gonna be baby Alaric’s first girlfriend!;)
