Dr. Seuss Baby Shower

Well, my friend was having a baby, I say was because she has now had the baby! A cute little boy named Adam Dell Jensen 7lbs 15oz. Good thing we didn't wait until Saturday to have the party since she went into labor Friday night :)! Well, she recently graduated in Elementary Education and I felt that Dr. Seuss was a great theme for her baby shower. My GREAT friend Courtney sent me a link of ideas because I had just over a week to plan. And that is where I found the idea for the decorations and invites. I came up with the games on my own.

Here is the invite:

Here is the table of food:

I made oreo truffles, green deviled eggs, had a fruit platter, and a bread platter. We had frappe as the drink: rainbow sherbet with sprite. And I also put some suckers and red vines on the table for color and treats.

I decorated a few spots with Dr. Seuss Books.

Here is the gift table, I placed these books there because they were my gift.

When the guests walked in I had them self address an envelope with thank you cards in them so all she had to do was write them and stick a stamp on it.
We played two games: The one that I based off of Are You My Mother: was Who is My Mother? In this game I had each guest draw a picture of a baby and then write their name on a seperate paper. I taped all the names and all of the pictures to a board and they all had to guess who the 'mother' was, meaning who drew which picture. The person who guessed the most of them right won. The other game was from The Cat In The Hat. The cat balances many things on his umbrella. As a Mom you learn to balance a lot of things. I gathered many baby items, ex. baby food, spoon, diapers, wipes, pjs, change of clothes, jacket for you, jacket for baby, shoes, blanket, favorite book and toy, etc. I spread them around the room and whoever could gather them all together in the fastest time, while holding the 'baby,' a stuffed animal, won the game.
Then we ate and opened gifts. I hope Veralyn enjoyed her party and I LOVED throwing it for her.
Here are the sites where I received my inspiration: here and here
Obviously I did not spend the kind of money that they did in these other parties, but I still think that it turned out great.
