If I were to have another baby and plan my own shower.......

...........which will never ever happen, because a) I am finished being pregnant and going through sleep withdrawal for months on end, and, b) I would never plan my own baby shower.

But...just in case pigs one day do fly and my plans get somewhat changed *gag*, this is how I would plan my day.

The theme for my shower would be an Alphabet theme, because...well...I don't really know. I just like it and the pink and blue thing is just old.

These (or something similar) would be sent out to all invited guests with cutesy words.

Martha Stewart would come over to plan the big day complete with all of her supplies, brain cells and skills. We would not discuss $$ because we all know how she deals with that. Instead she would offer all services and supplies free of charge because she is nice like that.

She would suggest alphabet blocks for the cake(s) and she would even make them and decorate them. That Martha is such a great lady.

She would go through the trouble of shopping for guest favours. You know what she would pick? Cute lil' stamps with each guests initials. And she would even wrap them up in her handmade paper. That Martha, I tell ya. She is one swell gal.
Alphabet cookies would be baked and decorated with all of my favourite things. Chocolate, candy, sprinkles....pretty much anything with sugar would do. We would have little finger sandwiches because they are the greatest food ever and some other unhealthy food items because I would be eating for two. Not because I enjoy unhealthy food. Geesh.
Instead of the silly game counting jelly beans and wrapping toilet paper around my belly, there would be a "Guess how many letters are in the pretty glass container". The winner would then get to take a home a pretty glass container with all of the letters. I know. I am too nice...errrr...I mean the person planning my shower is too nice. Think of all of the wonderful things you could do with small letters...approximately 89 of them. The list is endless.

An alphabet book would be created by all of the guests. Each guest could pick a letter and draw a picture of something that starts with that letter. They also could write a little note to the new baby (or me) on the other side. Everyone say it......."Awwwwwwwwww"
Decorations would be all things alphabet. Blocks. Letters hanging from the ceiling. Alphabet balloons. Little cutesy chalkboards with letters. Ooooo......I have so many ideas....that I would pass on to the lovely friend who was planning the shower of course.

And then I would have the baby. My baby would be brilliant because of all of the alphabet gifts that were given at the shower. That baby would grow up, find a great job and support his/her Momma.

The End.

I LOVE the alphabet block cake - so cute. And I would eat an entire letter (or two) myself!

I'm so jealous you know Martha! ;-P

I love the block cake idea! As long as Martha or some other person is frosting them it's a perfect idea!

What a great baby shower!
