Monster Baby Shower

I was so bummed that I wasn't able to make it up to Alaska for my little sister's baby shower.  Stupid expensive plane tickets to Alaska.  Even though I couldn't be there I still helped plan it from a distance.

She had a monster theme shower.  The whole party was inspired by the little guy on top of the diaper cake.

Don't you love all the stuff on the cake.  I wonder if the monster feet booties come in Bryce's Size.

I personally really liked the cute little monster popper on the cheesecakes.

Unfortunately the little monster ducks in the punch weren't the best floaters... but they were cute.

I think they did an awesome job on the banner and my biggest contribution was the Monster Match game.

This is my favorite baby shower game.  Basically it is like Memory.  You go around the room and each person gets to pick 2 numbers.  Under the numbers are words like contractions or Girl's name.  When they get a match they get a prize.  The prizes are what make this game fun.

Here is a list of some words and the corasponding prizes.  The prizes are all kinds of candy.

Daddy - Big Hunk
Conception - Skor
Choosing baby's name -  Whatchmacallit
Girl's name -  Baby Ruth
Twin boys - Mike and Ike
Contractions - Now and Later
Ride to hospital - Rocky Road
Anesthesiologist - Mr. Goodbar
Epidural - Life Savers
Hospital nursery - Cry Babies
Hospital bills - 100 Grand
seeing your baby - Tear Jerkers
Premies - Runts
10 pound babies - Whoppers
Triplets - 3 Musketeers
Breast feeding - Milky Way
Postpartum Tummy - Jelly Belly
Buying diapers - Payday
Baby giggles - Snickers
Dirty diapers - Milk Duds
Delivery Doctor - Butterfingers
Breast Engorgement - Mounds
Mommy's Nap - Take Five
Sleepless nights - Good N' Plenty

Have Fun!


  1. Thats a really cute game. I love the monster boy theme. I take it its a boy. So fun. I will have to keep something like this in mind when either I or a friend gets pregnant and I can do a shower for them. I love seeing different ideas besides just the diaper themes.
