I couldn't have asked for a better baby shower to celebrate with family and friends! It was so much fun helping put together the details and I may have gotten just a tiny bit carried away with the theming... but how can you not get carried away when it involves the greatest story in the galaxy? To start I asked a friend to design the shower invitations. We decided that having a gender reveal shower would be a lot of fun and using a Luke or Leia theme was the perfect inspiration for these adorable invitations! You can purchase your own through katiedidesigns. We made some BB-8 Cake Pops for the big announcement.
We had a blast putting together a Star Wars inspired menu. Mark grilled up Dark Side (Steak and Red Pepper) and Light Side (Chicken and Green Pepper) Kabobs for the main course. We had Vader Tater Salad and Jaba the Hut Jello Salad for sides. Yoda Soda Punch was a perfect choice for a beverage and no bake Wookie Cookies were a hit for dessert!
We had fun coming up with an assortment of activities and games for the shower including a Hyperdrive Diaper Drive raffle, Steal the Stars clothespin challenge, the Death Star circumference challenge, know your Star Wars ABCs, and a Storm Poopers dirty diaper challenge.
The shower ended with the big reveal! The Cake Pops were a big hit and such a fun way to announce that little Walter was on the way! Homemade Star Wars sugar cookies made the perfect thank you gift for everyone who came to share in this special day!
