Did you see the movie this weekend?
Well, I’m no superfan, but I like to embrace my inner teenager every so often and watch a sappy movie.
So I have this tradition (4 times running) with friends, that we have dinner together and then go to the midnight showing. We regret our tired eyes the next day, but we have so much fun with any excuse to get together. So I also have a friend who is having a December baby and insisted she didn’t need a shower. So I took the opportunity to turn this dinner into a surprise baby shower for her. She knew she was coming to the dinner and movie, but didn’t know it was her shower. We embraced the twilight theme for the night. She has a good sense of humor and could handle the silliness of her friends.
She could handle my silly newborn vampire cake pops!
I had fun with my halloween pops and knew I could turn them into “newborns” with red, blood thirsty eyes. You know how newborns are…
I even busted out with my first movie poster ever. Edward looked so serious, I had to make him say something cheesy. Kathryn gave me this awesome line, “I may sparkle in the sunlight, but it’s nothing compared to Leah’s pregnancy glow!” Lame and funny. Perfect!
So the great thing about my friends is that everyone wants to help. Literally, so many helpers, there’s almost nothing left for the host to do. I even had tell some people it was all assigned out! So I wanted to show you how fun and creative my friends are as they embraced our silly shower theme.
I was dying even more when I looked up close and she told me she made them with paper plates, bowls, a burger king crown and other miscellaneous items. I would’ve never guessed! Creativity at it’s best!
I wish I had pictures of the favors that another friend put together. They were popcorn and candy wrapped up for them to take to the movie! Perfect to-go treat. And did I mention she made yummy Italian Sodas (Volturi Style) to drink!
The list goes on with the help and fun this night was. This post supposed to be about Twilight but I’m getting side tracked thinking about how awesome my friends are. In the end, I think our guest of honor was truly surprised and grateful for the fun! She rolled with it and looked past our cheesy theme!
Kathryn is worried that when her baby looks at his baby book he is going to have lots of questions about why he had a vampire baby shower. Sorry Leah, you can blame your silly friends!
