Motorcycle Baby Shower

Our playgroup did it again and hosted another baby shower. (You can read all about shower #1 here and shower #2 here.) This time we waited to throw the shower until after the baby's arrival. Therefore we knew that it was a boy. Since his parent's are both Harley owners, a motorcycle theme seemed perfect. Lori, the hostess with the mostest, party planner extraordinaire!!, came up with lots of the fun ideas and got us all organized to do our part.
Here are some highlights of the day:
Decor-
We hosted the event in the momma baby's basement which is already Harley themed. Perfect! In addition to what was already there, these touches finished it off:

 Check out the awesome motorcycle diaper "cake."



 Lori had me make the onesies and she made the clothes pins to use them as decor.
Becky made this cool word art for Owen.
Food-
Of course we served pigs in a blanket and pulled pork. Along with punch, cupcakes, fruit, veggies, and chips.

Favors-
Janet crafted these chocolate motorcycles for favors.

And the lovely family!
Congrats Momma Lisa and Big Sis Annabel! Welcome Owen!!

I am linking to these wonderful parties this week.

Very, very cute. (Although I have to wonder if Dad wants his manly Harley room called cute?) My favorite was the rubber ducks in the punch. I'm going to have to do that sometime!

Hi Nikki! So happy you found some ideas for your sister. My friend created the word art using the free program Tagxedo. Hope this helps!
