The Best Around-The-Clock Baby Shower

The best things in life take a little time, right?!
The Best Around-The-Clock Baby Shower Theme
My brother and sister-in-law are a testament to that (read more about their long struggle with infertility here).

When it came time to plan this highly anticipated baby shower, we knew a 'ROUND-THE-CLOCK theme was perfect!

My graphic designer friend at Manda Julaine Designs whipped up these adorable invitations, and we suggested a gift "theme" for guests (i.e. bath time, bedtime, feeding time, etc.).

Guests devoured delicious chicken salad sandwiches from our favorite hometown coffee shop, Wild Carrot.

Everyone loved these gorgeous and delicious almond-flavored cookies from You Bake Me Happy.

And put together some cute party favors with these adorable mini bottles of wine (seriously, did you know they even MADE THESE?!) that read:
"Baby is coming, the time is near.
When you hear the news,
Open your bottle and send her a cheer!"
Baby Shower Wine Favors
My sister-in-law opened creative gifts for tummy time, travel time...you name it!

My sister and I were pretty proud of our group gift for "teething time" including a basket for baby with these necessities:
AND this basket of necessities for Mom and Dad! ;)

We also made sure to stock up the parents-to-be with diapers.

A pack of diapers earned guests a chance to win a $25 gift card to the #1 restaurant the mom-to-be has been craving: Little Caesar's! (Apparently, it's all about the crazy bread!)
Of course we couldn't get by without writing a few clever messages on some of the diaper stash for those late night changes!

Planning this 'Round-The-Clock Baby Shower has me eager to host another baby shower..and OF COURSE anxious to meet my little niece!

Have you been to a memorable baby shower? Do you have a favorite theme? I'd love to hear your ideas in the comments!
