A few weeks ago, my mom, sister, & 2 close girlfriends threw a shower for little guy and I in Omaha. The decided upon a robot theme to celebrate & came up with some really great ideas I know you'll want to steal.
This little guy is made from a bunch of random things. His head is one of those sorter toys. His nose is a snot sucker. His chest is a dishwasher box thing for bottle parts and such. His belly is a plastic bin filled with plastic blocks. His arms are bottle scrubbers. He has candy piggy banks for legs & baby shoes on his feet. He was stationed on the table right inside the door to the party.
Amber made a robot centerpiece for each table. Aren't they cute?
Do you see the robot paper cut-outs that were on the table? And nuts & bolts were scattered about, too!
My last name on a bunting. My mom made this with some robot fabric.
The snack table. My sister made little signs with the robotic name for all the snacks and drinks.
Well, all except the robot cake, but that one is kind of a give-away.
Micro Chips = Potato Chips
Nuts and Bolts = yummy popcorn, pretzel mixture with pumpkin spice and caramel I think.
Laser Beams = Veggie Tray
Cogs and Gears = Cucumber Sandwiches
Liquid Hydrogen = Water
Robot Juice = Capri Suns
Battery Acid = Punch
Tammy & I.
I'm ready to tackle the present opening.
There were lots of presents.
Little guy has lots of clothes.
He has lots of toys.
Amber took photos of Jason & I when she came down for the shower in Kansas City. This book has some of them printed out in it.
My mom made the little guy a robot quilt. Fussy cut robots in the centers of wonky log cabin blocks. Super cute!
My gramma & mom. My mom got a gift, too. Emily brought her a brag book to tote around photos of little guy.
We played games. This game was fun! Katie, my sister, came up with it. Everyone got a little jar of playdough and had to make a baby out of it.
Even little Lucy got in on the action.
There were some funny looking babies!
I had to be the judge, but I couldn't pick just one baby as the winner. I picked 2.
Michael's baby was awesome.
Look at the back of it!
Emily's baby was too cute. I love the hair! So, Michael & Emily were the two winners I chose.
Everyone got to take one of these little guys home with them. Aren't they fun?
It was a really fun party. I got to see people I hadn't seen in a long time. I got to play games & celebrate the little guy. I was given lots of good presents to dress & entertain the little guy with. I can't wait for him to get here!
