My little sister is having a baby! I was so honored to get to host her baby shower at my house. It was a co-ed shower and was so simple and fun! The amazing thing about my sister and her husband is they are really laid back and have great friends, so it was important to make the baby shower fun and easy-going.

I started by picking out some really cute invitations from Basic Invite. It was the first time I had used the website, and I was really impressed by how easy and quick it was for me to make amazing invitations! There were so many color options, almost unlimited, and I was able to preview my work at any point! I did not know this at the time, but they also offer printed samples! Such a great idea! The peel and seal envelopes were also great and easy, and there are over 40 different color options to choose!

I was so grateful that the weather was beautiful the day of the shower! Gorgeous, eighty degree weather. We had some fun lawn games, such as corn hole. We decided to do some fun games such as “eat the poo out of the diaper”, “diaper olympics”, “beer chugging out of a bottle contest”, and “baby pictionary”. It was a hoot, and the guests loved it. Lots of laughter around.

For food we did a giant crockpot of slow cooked BBQ pork, with some yummy Hawaiian rolls. We cooked up some hot dogs and brats. There was a big macaroni salad, lots of dips and chips, and plenty of beer and cake!

My step-mother is an amazing interior decorator and she loves to decorate for events. She made some really cute favors for the guests and some beautiful party decor.

I also made my sister a super fun diaper cake. It was so much easier than I thought!

I was so grateful to be able to host a shower for my sister and her husband. They both mean so much to me and it was fun to be a part of their special day! Having a co-ed shower was really fun, and it was very low-key. I will definitely stick to keeping things simple in the future and will use Basic Invite again for gorgeous party invitations!
