Baby Registry | Tips & Tricks

Baby Registry | Tips & Tricks


On Monday when I shared the latest of what's happening in Little Love's nursery, I mentioned spending the cash/check gifts to purchase her vintage French provincial dresser. And I thought I would share tips and tricks on what you should do with all those monetary gifts including gift cards.


One of the greatest pieces of advice I was given during my pregnancy was to hold on to all my gift cards until after the baby comes. I gotta say this one piece of advice benefited us greatly. Mostly as new parents you really don't know how to separate what babies actually need to what's nice to have. I remember asking my friend for advice on my registry and she pointed me to Babies R Us Registry Checklist and said it was pretty accurate for the most part and in some aspects it is and in another aspects is not.

Babyshowers | Little Love

Babyshowers | Little Love


It is no secret Little Love is already loved so much by so many people. We were blessed to be able to have two. TWO. babyshowers for this sweet little girl. Our family and church gave us one. Instead of doing two separate post, I decided to hold off until all babyshowers were complete before sharing as why it has taken so long to put this post together. 

Co-Ed Family & Friends Babyshower

I will start with our family and friends babyshower. This shower was hosted at our house which we thought would be a great idea as we wouldn't need to transport the gifts and while that was convenient, preparing for the babyshower wasn't. It was very stressful trying to get the house all clean and straightened up beforehand, so I highly recommend not having your own shower at your own house unless you are able to hire a maid or have someone volunteer to clean for you.

My oh my were we surprised by how many people made it out to celebrate with us. We ran out of seating quickly but were overwhelmed with the love and support. 


We had our entryway table set up as the sign in as guest entered and had a few maternity photos and ultrasounds displayed here as well.



The opposite side is our dining room and we had the table set up as the gift table.


I created this onesie banner in Word and printed it out on specialty paper from Hobby Lobby. I love how it came out that I still have it hanging up.


Our kitchen table was set up as the food table.



Our cake came out better than we imagined and tasted so delicious, I will definitely be using the same person forever now. If you are in the Katy/Richmond area and are interested in my cake lady, let me know and I will give you her information.


While our gifts were dropped off in the dining room, we planned on opening them in front of everyone in our living room where there is a lot more space. All the little girl things were so precious and Little Love looks so adorable in her little clothes.


If you are interested in what types of games we played at this shower, you can refer to this post where I also provide a FREE printable.




Church Babyshower

The Women's Ministry in our church put together this babyshower for another expectant mom and myself. We were both due in March, her and her husband are expecting a babyboy. The ladies in our church did an amazing job at putting this beautiful shower together; it was so simple yet so elegant.

A few of the ladies did a devotion and presented us with different items for our babies that went with a description and a scripture reference. Some of the items were a basket, baby blanket, toys, first catechism, etc. It was touching and I tried to hold it together and not look like an emotional mess, I think I did a good job.


 



Work Babyshowers

Originally, we were suppose to have a third and fourth shower thrown by my co-workers and another thrown by Anthony's co-workers but Little Love arrived the day before the third party was suppose to happen so we had to cancel both but that didn't stop our co-workers from reaching out to us in other ways and showering us and our little girl.

We are just overwhelmed by the love and support we have received and still receive and the generosity of everyone in our life is amazing. We could not be any more blessed to do life with these people in our church, our work place and our family & friends. God is so so good.

Baby Shower Games + FREE Printable

Baby Shower Games + FREE Printable


This past weekend, our friends and family got together to shower our Little Love with love. We were surprised with how many people come out and felt so lucky to know so many others are just excited about our little girl as we are (I will be sharing more photos of the entire babyshower later on so be on the lookout). After we enjoyed refreshments, my sister led our guests through some fun baby shower games.

One of the first games we played was called Yummy Yummy. Guests tried to guess what type of baby food we had out either by tasting or smelling which only one person was brave enough to try tasting the food.

We also played a game where guest have to remove clothespins off a hanger one at a time using only one hand without dropping any. The highest amount taken off was 17 I believe and the smallest was 1. It was kinda funny watching everyone attempt this.



And of course, it wouldn't be a proper babyshower without the guests trying to figure out how round mommy's belly is. I think my belly was 12 squares of toilet paper round, the highest guess was 21 (I must look like a cow to that person) and the lowest guess was around 8, (maybe?).


The last game we didn't have time to play as we were already 2 hours in the shower and still needed to do cake and presents however I thought I'd share it with you and include a FREE customizable printable for you guys!


Download your FREE Who Knows Mommy & Daddy printable here.

While the games are fun to play and watch people play, I really enjoyed the time of fellowship with everyone and the cake (it was delicious!)
