“Go Baby, Go!” Baby Shower {Part 1 – Food Table}

transportation baby shower food and dessert table with cars, airplanes, and trucks

Last month we debuted the first of 3 HWTM baby shower themes created for Huggies (a “Showered With Love” Girl Baby Shower theme) – but for those of you leaning more blue than pink for your celebration, I’m super excited to share our BOY theme with you today! ;)

GO, Baby Go! Baby Shower + FREE Printables

From cars to trucks to airplanes and more, this transportation inspired baby shower is a celebration of mom’s “precious cargo.” I loved the idea of pairing toy “things that go” with thoughtful concepts like “GO make your mark on the world” & encouraging both mom and baby to “enjoy the ride” they’re about to embark on together! Scroll down to check out the food & desserts table — which is filled with bright colors, fun backdrop ideas and healthy options like stoplight inspired Smoothie Shots! And stay tuned for Part 2 — which will cover the (easy!) truck shaped diaper cake, tablescape design & more creative ways to use all the printables… some of which you can download for free! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Stoplight inspired Smoothie Shots & Sparkling Soda
– Crepe paper backdrop with mini patterned paper airplanes & fuzzy yarn ball clouds
– “Precious Cargo” airplane sandwiches “flying” on cloud-patterned paper
– Airplane toy embellished with printable labels + truck carrying a load of yarn balls!

Why is everything cuter than the last thing you did? : )

The gas pump? Just stop. No. Go. No. Stop.

Dayna Goldman SAYS:

Hi Cassi, these parfaits were made with blue raspberry Jello and Cool Whip layered to look like clouds in a glass. Pretty simple!
