{December Projects} Wry Baby-Inspired Shower

In December, my coworkers and I had a joint Holiday Party and Baby Shower for our friend. Our office parties usually involve me making a lame attempt at decorating our nasty store room with balloons and plastic table clothes and coordinating a potluck. I was so happy when they heeded my suggestion to go to the restaurant in the Holiday Inn upstairs from our office. (The same place where they had my bridal shower.)

I’ve always wanted to host a shower around my favorite go-to baby gift, the Wheel of Responsibility and Safe Baby Handling Tips book by Wry Baby. Since the guest-of-honor was a guy, I thought this was the perfect opportunity.

Wheel of Responsibility Napkin Rings

I pulled the baby head image from the Wheel of Responsibility and recreated a miniature version to sit atop napkin rings.


Each guest was greeted with a menu that I fashioned after the Wheel of the Responsibility.

Table Decorations

I scanned a few tips from the book and mounted them on tent cards cut from black card stock for centerpieces.

I also made a table runner out of red and black paper from the 'Source, of course.

I brought all of the vases and candle holders from home.

We topped everything off with cupcakes from our office favorite (You're Welcome, co-workers!), Sugar Bliss. I added some not-really-matching red and black flags to the cupcakes. I should have made some wheels of responsibilities or danger symbols for those, but I was DONE with cutting after finishing those napkins.
