{Real Party} Robot Baby Shower

{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!

{Real Party} A Shower for Baby Fern

{Real Party} A Shower for Baby Fern
Happy {Mommy Monday}!
 I have a special treat for you today… a {Real Party} post from one of my favorite bloggers,
Lauren from The Little Things We Do.  
Lauren just had a baby shower thrown by her friends, including fellow blogger Becca from Life @ 1521. I was super excited when Lauren said I could feature the shower here because there are so many great details that could translate into a ton of different parties. 
{Decor} 

The shower was themed around the name chosen for Lauren’s little girl, Fern. (Such a pretty name!)
The hosts used rustic details to really make this party special. I love the use of ferns in a variety of bottles and pine cones in jars. All of the rustic details are then contrasted with the softness of yarn.
Baby shower for a baby girl without pink?
 LOVE IT! 
(Oh, and… how amazing is that livingroom?)

{Activities}


Instead of traditional baby shower games the hosts opted for some fun activities. 
(This makes me happy. Anyone else feel incredibly AWKWARD playing games that involve chugging out of baby bottles or smelling chocolate laden diapers?)
The acitvities included guessing baby Fern’s birthday &
Finger Knitting garland for baby Fern’s nursery. 
{The Menu}
The drinks and food from this party make me wish I had been there! The hosts put together a hot cocoa bar with fixins. The fixins included caramels, truffles, whipped cream, peppermints and more. Homemade Gingerale was also served and I can’t wait to try the recipe!
The food table is gorgeous, isn’t it? I love the pine cone filled jars lit with the surrounding tea lights. The stamped flags are also a fabulous and fun detail. 
French toast, scones, blueberry muffins…oh my! 
{The Favors}


The hosts created cute little pom bouquets as favors for the guests. This is a fabulous idea for a couple of reasons: A) Not spending an arm and a leg on favors and B) The guests can put these out in their house to decorate for Fall and will be reminded of sweet baby Fern everytime they see them!

Thank you to Lauren for letting me feature this adorable shower on the blog. Congrats to you and your family!

If you are as in love with this party as I am then you might want to check out Becca’s post on it that has a ton more photos and links to the delicious food recipes and a finger knitting tutorial.
