Cowboy Baby Shower

I was lucky to have two baby showers, one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast. This one was on the West Coast hosted by my mother-in-law. They live on a ranch so it seemed fitting for the theme to be cowboy! We kept it small and had a great time.

First, we played some games. 

The first was match the animal to its baby name. For example "cat" would be "kitten". How many do you know? The other game we played was the Price is Right. We had them tell us whether the current prices were higher or lower. Which do you think are higher or lower?

We gave out some Bacon Bark (dark chocolate with almonds and bacon) as prizes and everyone got to select a succulent to take home.

Next, we ate some delicious food. We had a creamery (cheese plate), veggie garden (veggie platter), haystacks (rice krispies), Yum Yum (pork roast), and cow chips (cheesecake brownies).

Last, we opened presents. My husband was able to be here in person to help me open them all. We had a good laugh at some of them. My mom, an ER nurse, sent us a medical records book while his mom made sure to get a bunch of "grandma" bibs.
We all had a blast and were thankful for our friends and family that could join!

What was your baby shower theme?
