On Friday evening, I helped host a baby shower for a work friend of mine. She is due in August and is SO excited! I was in charge of decorations, activities, and I also baked some desserts. So, I thought I would share with y’all.

For activities, we played Mommy Mad-Libs, Baby A-Z (where you have to think of a baby-related item starting with each letter of the alphabet) and we decorated onesies.
