Just last year, little Lisa was pregnant with her adorable little chick. Remember her absolutely gorgeous shower that her mother-in-law hosted and threw? In December of last year we threw Lisa a shower at work/school.
While this shower does not rival Lisa’s original shower, I thought it was nicely done for a baby shower at work (and I’m not just saying that because I helped host this one).
Of course we included burlap, banners, and our take on balloons.
To jazz up a very sterile baby shower (as work showers tend to be), we covered the desks with tablecloths, brought in some silver serving dishes and a punch bowl, and added some decorations that are the standard pacifier/baby shower items at Party City.
We also had our guests help make Baby T a book of her ABCs. Everyone enjoyed creating a creature or scene out of his/her letter. Here is the sample we gave for reference, which pales in comparison to some of the other pages.
At the end of the shower, Rona took all the pages and collated them into a book of ABC’s for Baby T.
And, what’s a shower without a cake? We are ever so fortunate to have a talented friend and colleague who made the baby carriage cake.
While we are told that it is the thought that counts, it still is nice if the thought is presented with care, which is what we tried to do when we threw Lisa a cute baby shower at work.
