Football-themed baby shower

We threw a baby shower for a gal in our book club and she loves the Minnesota Vikings so we chose a football slash Vikings theme. Everything was purple pride! It was more fun and creative than any other shower we’ve done, including a robot-theme baby shower which was super cute too. At first, it was tough to find football theme stuff, but after a few google searches and some trips around town, everyone found what they were looking for. Personally, I was frustrated trying to find Vikings-theme stuff for decor and food. I thought it would be relatively easy to find Vikings food flags but I looked everywhere and couldn’t find anything! Eventually, I just bought purple and gold glitter tape from Target and made my own. What a pain in the ass. But everything turned out beautifully. Have a look!

We set up a concession table with food and drinks…we had non-alcoholic (and alcohol) mimosas

We had a watermelon football helmet full of fruit (I got all the fruit at Aldi!)

I cut up my cinnamon coffee cake and used cupcake holders so they were easy to grab. These were my Vikings food flags that took way too long.

Glitter tape food flags…in theory, a great idea. Until you start cutting and assembling.

Football-shaped Chinese paper lanterns

Football vase centerpieces made out of beer bottles

Game prize bags made with craft paper – aren’t these the cutest?

The gift table. I made a diaper cake too, in record time (the night before!)

The guest of honor. We all wore Vikings jerseys or purple, of course!
