{Real Party} Robot Baby Shower

I’m just going to call this week the week of baby showers.
Yesterday we got to see a lovely, rustic shower for baby Fern.
Today…the robot baby shower thrown for me and my little man by my lovely friends.

My friends put together this amazing invitation to really give guests an idea of what to expect at the party. I love the colors, because they are some of what we ended up doing in our little guys nursery. I also love the wording:
“Greetings, Humans!”
“Your mission, should you choose to accept it:”
“Affirmative(!)”
The geek in me rejoiced.
Guests arrived to see robot signs pointing the way to the welcome table where the hosts had purchased a book for everyone to sign. The book, “Go the F*** to Sleep” is hilarious
(but, will be for us to read until my lil guy is no longer little.)
They also purchased adorable robot suckers from an Etsy shop for favors.
(unfortunately I cannot find the Etsy shop…if you know please send me an e-mail so I can properly link!)
The decor was so adorable! The hosts used the color scheme of blue, orange, green, yellow and grey throughout the party in the paper goods, balloons, ribbons and even the food.
I loved the welcome banner so much that I also hung it in the hospital room after baby was born.
The small details really set a well-crafted party aside from just a normal party. The little pictures of Xander Harris (a character from Buffy the Vampire Slayer…one of my favorite shows growing up) really made me laugh. It was such a fun detail.
The drink and food tags cracked me up. I could just imagine my friends coming up with these things:
Drinks= Lubricants
Blueberry Lemonade= Ascorbic Acid & Blue Fruit Elixir
Veggie Platter= Fiber Matter Platter
Food=Filler Matter
Fruit Platter= Fructose Matter Platter
Cupcakes= Micro Cake Cups
Too Funny!
And, as I’ve said before… I’m not a fan of traditional baby shower games. So I was super excited to see that my friends had a fun activity planned instead of the games.
Everyone created our little guy a robot onesie by taking different robot parts and ironing them to the onesies. Added bonus: my friends realized that the little guy wouldn’t stay in one size for long so they bought different sized onesies! He will have robot outfits until he is 1!
Thanks for checking out my baby shower and a big thanks to my lovely friends who put this shin-dig together. 
You know who you are!

    I always think of Buffy when I hear the name Xander. I was obsessed with that show in middle school.

    Your friends put on an adorable party. Love the theme!

      A friend of mine actually designed them and then printed them on transfer paper bought at her local craft store.
