Yesterday at Linda’s we celebrated a co-worker, Reedu, and the newest (soon to be) addition to her family! She is expecting her second child, but wasn’t working with us when she had her first. When I offered to throw a baby shower at the office, she said she’d already been showered for her first… so how about a little “sprinkle”? I loved the idea! Our other co-worker and friend Britney and I got to work creating a theme, picking a date, and delegating tasks. It was a LOT of work… and so worth it. Reedu and our Linda the Bra Lady co-workers had such a wonderful time. We keep getting compliments – it makes me smile so much!
Have you ever thrown a baby shower at work? How about a baby “sprinkle”? Here are a few photos of our DIY projects, baking, set up, and from the party itself!
Britney and I made homemade desserts a few days before the party. Britney baked cupcakes in purple and teal cupcake liners, and made matching homemade frosting. I punched out little elephants from scrapbook paper and attached them to toothpicks to put in the larger cupcakes. I also made brownies with Oreo cookie crumbles using coconut oil. They were both a big hit!
We set up the party the night before in our conference room. The space wasn’t very big, and was overrun by a large table. We moved everything to the sides, added streamers and decorations, and made do. I think it turned out great!
We played a Baby Trivia game using a PowerPoint presentation on the conference room big screen, Baby Bingo which I made and printed out myself, and a Guess the Due Date/Gender game which Britney drew! The blue circles are for a boy, and the purple are for girls. Whoever is the closest to the actual birth date and gender wins a $25 H&M Gift Card!
Also… Reedu is a star! I needed a pregnant model for one of the latest Linda the Bra Lady Braducational Videos on bras for maternity and nursing, and Reedu graciously agreed to participate. Here she is, looking lovely and letting me fit her for fabulous pregnancy and nursing bras:
