Babies are a true blessing… and so are good friends.

The moment Renee told me that she was pregnant I knew that I had to throw her a baby shower that would make her feel right at home. Of course a beach themed party is what I’m talking about. Coming from Florida she loves the ocean and beach just as much as I do and why planning this for her was a breeze!

Being able to have it at Trophy Cupcakes & Party Room was fabulous too since I wouldn’t have been able to fit everyone at my place nor wanted to have a mess to clean up! 😉 The white walls of the party room were the perfect canvas to create a setting Renee and all of her friends would enjoy. Now join us in this special day for Renee as I break down all of the fun we had!

Guests were able to sign in and share some ‘mama-to-be’ advice.  Share your advice with us in the comments, would love to hear!

Setting the tone right with vintage beach images strung on the wall and a ‘baby on board’ invite.

We played a fun game with necklaces and safety pins that you can find at the end of this post.

A baby shower can’t be a shower without presents of course. Even the winner of the game, Clare, got a prize.

A beach backdrop I painted was the perfect selfie station for everyone to get a photo with Renee.

I am so lucky to have a friend like Renee and can’t wait to meet her bundle of joy, Jax.

A game for your next baby shower:

For Renee’s baby shower we played this game and it was a great, competitive and fun ice breaker for everyone.

  1. Make necklaces out of ribbon/ twine/ chain/ etc. and attach (5) safety pins to the end of each
  2. Create a board that has at least 5-8 ‘baby’ type words on them that are sure to be said throughout the shower. Mine were ‘baby’, ‘pregnant’, ‘cute’, ‘Jax’, ‘cheers’.
  3. When guests arrive have each one put a necklace on and explain the game to them.

Rules:

  • If caught saying any of the words listed, the person will have to give up one of their pins to the other.
  • Whoever has the most pins at the end of the shower received a prize!
  • Feel free to add 2nd and 3rd place too as all guests love to try and win something
  • ENJOY!

    I love Renee’s outfit and necklace. It’s perfect.
