Brews & Bowling Baby Shower: A Celebration into Parenthood

adult party bowling baby shower

The main goal of a party is of course to celebrate the guest of honor, but it’s also important to make sure your guests are having fun as well. Which is why I love this Brews & Bowling Baby Shower: A Celebration into Parenthood, which was beautifully photographed by Angela Bartunek of Aster & Olive Photography and put together by the couples’ family & friends! The laid back vibe combined with retro decor creates the perfect atmosphere for everyone to have a total blast catching up, bowling & eating some delicious, non-fussy food (who doesn’t love sliders + beer?!)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Teal tissue paper pinwheel welcome sign backdrop, paper chain links & polka dot garlands
– Baby blue painted bowling trophy food stand centerpieces + a retro teal & red tablescape
– Old school treats like Cracker Jacks & swirl lollipops + simple cupcakes & soda pop
– A retro bowling alley invitation, chalkboard signs + candy bag party favors

PARTY DETAILS as told by Angela

As an afternoon celebration for parents-to-be, Charity & Ben, many of their family and friends came together at Mahall’s 20 Lane Bowling Alley in Lakewood (Cleveland) Ohio. The couples’ shower included open bowling to keep guests engaged and entertained, a few heart felt well-wishes from some of their stellar parent friends, lots of wonderful food, sweets and an open bar for everyone but Charity! Best part of all? Charity and Ben decided to open their baby gifts at home and let their guests truly just enjoy the party; everyone was so thankful.
