Hey guys! This post isn’t about me for once. It’s actually about my friend, Esraa. She’s having a baby boy and we planned a cute friend’s baby shower for her and her husband, Idris. I wish I could say planning a baby shower is easy, but it was far from that. There is so much detail that goes into everything and all I can really say is shoutout to Pinterest for giving me such creative ideas. The behind the scenes of this whole thing was pretty all over the place, but I tried to make sure certain things were not missing at this shower. And here’s a quick shoutout to Jose (@heartbreak_papi) for letting us have the baby shower at his spot! He definitely saved the day.
For anyone planning a baby shower, I highly recommend you go to “Hobby Lobby”. This store is very similar to Michael’s but way cheaper. Other stores I went to were Party City for decorations and baby shower games, Barnes & Nobles for baby books, and Target for baby clothes and small stuffed animals.
I wish I started my shopping at Hobby Lobby, but nonetheless I was able to find everything I needed. For the few items I struggled to find, I ended up buying arts & crafts materials to DIY them. I DIY’ed the big “BABY” blocks, the sign in section, the card box holder, and the hanging baby clothes with clothespins and string. Other stores I went to were Party City for decorations and baby shower games, Barnes & Nobles for baby books, and Target for baby clothes and small stuffed animals.
If you would like to order any dessert for a special occasion please reach out to her. I let her know I wanted an elephant theme and she instantly suggested to make the cake above.
I won’t go into too much detail on the fun we had at the shower, you can see it for yourself in the vlog. I hope you enjoy watching it.
