U of U Football Diaper Shower

The mom to be is a huge football nut and specifically a fan of her alma mater.  She knew she was having a football theme, but we surprised her with the U of U details.


~ fruit skewers
~ homemade dulce de leche to dip
~ vegetable tray with dip
~ football cake balls
~ grass cupcakes with U of U toppers
~ chips and dip
~ GO {NAME} water bottles and diet coke as it's the mommy's favorite and had the right colors served out of a cooler


~ astro turf runner
~ astro turf coasters
~ red bunting
~ mommy-to-be's gag gift was a photoshopped image of a U of U football player with her face in it, complete with black streaks under the eyes and the number "4" which was a running theme since this is their fourth baby
~ football saying scrapbook paper liners


~ as each guest entered, we put their "game face" on and smeared black under their eyes to reduce that pesky present opening glare
~ munch and mingle
~ a football game was on the big screen in the other room
~ before present opening, mommy-to-be ran through butcher paper painted with red "GO {NAME} #4" like the start of a homecoming game.  It was so funny to see her pregnant belly bust through.  My friend and co-planner came up with this idea and it was the highlight of the party.
