“Everyone is always curious as to where Pancake the name came from and it was just a sweet Sunday morning when my husband opted to name the baby Pancake as opposed to us referring to it as an ‘it’. So when it came around to starting to think about the shower I told my mom that I wanted to be totally surprised and only had a few reservations—I’m not big on the typical ‘baby shower games’ and I just wanted everyone to come and enjoy a nice lunch.”
Jen, mum to be and guest of honour!
What a beautiful idea to use the nickname as theme of the baby shower. This light blue baby shower is so pretty and sweet, guests were greeted with a custom escort sign and mini bowties, reading “sit your bottom”! They kept the shower free from games as the guest of honor was not a ‘game gal’. To keep things fun and entertaining they set up a tattoo station with custom tattoos that read, “pancake tribe”, a late night diaper making station, a block party station and a “wishes for pancake” station! Brunch was filled with Mum’s favorites, and of course, a mini pancake bar! With cocktail in hand, guests goofed off in the pancake photo booth. Guests were sent home with ‘make-at-home’ pancake favors – wrapped in linen fabric, a mini whisk and a sweet note from ‘pancake’!
