Baby Shower Picnic

baby shower picnic
I helped throw a baby shower for my friends Stacy and Rob this weekend at an open, grassy park. Guests lounged on blankets and enjoyed their root beer floats in the shade. For decorations, we hung paper pom poms from the trees and had a bunch of oversized balloons everywhere with frilly tails. My favorite part, though, was the teepee! (We followed these easy DIY teepee instructions.) It looked so cute as part of the decor and was also fun to give them as a gift for their baby.

Isn't Stacy the cutest pregnant woman? 

DIY teepee
The teepee was a big hit. All the kids tried to squeeze in all at once. It was so cute.

Painted letters for the baby's initials (they're naming him Charlie Roy :).

striped straws and mason jars
We stuck flags on the straws and asked people to write their names on them so they could tell their cups apart.

This is very useful information on baby shower picnic. Last month, I arranged a candy buffet party for the kids at one of beautiful Los Angeles wedding venues. Invited all our family and friends with their kids. They all enjoyed this party with great food. Games were also played by kids which made party more entertaining!
