Oh The Places You’ll Go [inspired] Baby Shower

{with FREE printables}

It’s been a while since I promised to post about the baby shower that we gave my sister, inspired by Oh The Place You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss. Well, here it is, with FREE printables!

My baby sister is having a baby! She asked our older sister and me to put together a family baby shower and asked that we not make too much of a fuss. She didn’t want baby shower games, but she was okay with some activities. Her nursery theme is Dr. Seuss’ Oh! The Places You’ll Go and Oh! Baby! Go Baby! so we decided to use that for her shower theme as well. I made up a list of items we would need (that I will share with you next week…it’s just a spreadsheet, nothing big) and we started getting ready (at the last minute because that is just how I work best).

A person is a person no matter how small sonogram collage

I made a few printables that are shared at the end of this post, but the first one was for the sonogram pictures collage that my sister wanted to make. The middle image says,

“A person’s a person no matter how small!”

My sis found the other stickers at a craft store and put together the framed collage.

All because two people fell in love photo frame

She also ordered this frame as well and put on the entrance table. I can also proudly say that she used one of the photos from our pregnancy photo shoot to put in the frame. (I may be getting more and more into this photography thing ;))

Baby Shower fingerprint tree

Also on the entrance table, we framed a “fingerprint tree”. We had two stamp pads in different shades of pink and a pack of baby wipes. When people arrived, or at their convenience, they could leave their print on a tree branch wherever they would like. We also had an Oh! The Places book for signatures and messages for baby or Mom.

The printable in the middle of the table says,

“Wait! Stop by you see, and write a special message just for me! Leave a fingerprint on the tree and sign your name so I will never forget you came. Write all over any of the pages. This book I’ll treasure for all of my ages!”

It was signed Preslee Ann, but I have left that part blank on the printable so you can add in the name you would like.

Advice in a diaper baby shower activity

For another fun activity, my older sister came up with the idea to write special messages for Mommy in diapers for those late night diaper changes. The activity normally has people writing the messages inside the diapers or on the front of the diapers, but we decided to make little inserts to go in them. This way, my sis can keep the messages for reading over and over.

We arranged the diapers in a pretty basket and the message notes in a metal bucket. The printable that is propped against the basket says,

“We can’t wait to give (baby) lots of hugs and kisses, but today let’s write Mommy some cute little wishes. Along with the wishes, be gentle, be nice, and write on these diapers some words of advice!”.

Again, instead of (baby), Preslee’s name was there, but I replaced with baby so these can be used again. If you want to add in a name, just use an eraser tool in an editor and paste in text that you want. Feel free to also send me an email and I should be able to alter one for you quickly!

Beezlenut Splash drink for baby shower

For refreshments, we started with two drinks. The Beezlenut Splash is simply water with sliced fruit floating in it. I used two oranges, four lemons, and six key limes. Feel free to use whatever fruit you would like. You will want to make this ahead of time and let it soak for the fruit to flavor the water.

We also made Yink’s Pink Ink Drink (not pictured because for some reason we didn’t take a picture…weird!) that was pink sherbet and ginger ale mixed together. We used the printables held up by small clothes pins, but you could tape them to the drink pitchers or hang them above with twine.

Fish in a Dish & Truffula Trees treats

We had Truffula Trees (sugar candy sticks) and Fish in a Dish (colored goldfish)…

Making Three Cheese Trees with toothpicks and cheese squares

…and my boy had the most fun before the shower making the Three Cheese Trees with his cousin. We used styrofoam cones, toothpicks, and pre-cut cheese squares. We found that it was easier to put the toothpicks in randomly and then stick on the cheese.

Three Cheese Trees for baby shower

We displayed the Three Cheese Trees with crackers on the table along with the printable sign held up with clothes pins again. We had large bowls of chips and two different dips in the small metal buckets.

Sneetch Treats for baby shower

We also had a fruit tray and a veggie tray with a label that says,

“Sneetch Treats – The star-belly sneetches have bellies with stars; the plain-belly sneetches have none upon thars – The Sneetches. Grab a carrot, grab a melon, or a mint if you like. We’re all family now – Fields, Gay, Krugel, and Pike”.

I left off the names in the printable, but again, it can easily be added in if you would like.

Thank you cake pops for baby shower

Finally, as a treat and as a party favor to take home, we made cake pops with a printable that says,

“Today was good, Today was fun. Thank you, Thank you Everyone. You made me laugh, you made me cry. Please enjoy this sugar high!”

You can find the printable below and my Cake Pops Tutorial here.

My boy kissing baby belly

We had a great day and even though my boy was only there before and after the baby shower, he couldn’t wait to kiss the tummy and now he is looking forward to meeting his new baby cousin, Preslee!

You can find all of the free printable labels from above (and more) below. Simply save a copy to your own computer and either print or save as a .pdf. We actually emailed the files to our local Office Max and they printed on cardstock for us. If you have questions or need something altered, please feel free to comment below or email me at janet(at)goingcrazywannago(dot)com and I’ll see what I can do.

Don’t forget to pick up a copy of Oh, the Places You’ll Go! and Oh, Baby, the Places You’ll Go! when you’re shopping for the Mommy to be!
