Awesome job, Hillary :) everything looks perfect, you all girls including your mom are so PRETTY!! Cant wait till i can trow a baby shower for my sis.

Can you tell me more about the games that you played like I spy and the signs around your necks?

Hillary Salvaggione said...

Thank you Lola!!

Hey Charity! YES! The baby ISPY was just like the ispy books, baby shower themed. We had people use camera phones to take their own pictures of what was listed & if they were on instagram we had them hashtag as well so that we could find & see all of the different pics that people took! As for the funny signs, we made a bunch of signs with funny sayings on them, & everyone gets one & wears them (blank side facing out) from that point forward, no one is allowed to say the word "baby" if you do, you have to flip your sign over & wear your embarrassing phrase such as: someone made a stinker, baby blowout, does this diaper make my butt look big?, milkshake please, fit thrower, i'm in time out, etc. :) thanks for asking!
