the onsie game: nesting shower, part 2

Instead of the traditional shower games, we had each guest bring a onsie for a guessing game.  As I mentioned yesterday, guests were asked to bring a unisex onsie that reflected something about them.  We hung up all the onsies on a clothesline across the living room- which consequently made for some cute shower decorations.  The mom-to-be to was asked to look over all the onsies and pick out one at a time.  For each onsie she had 3 chances to guess who it had come from.  If she guessed wrong 3 times, the person who gave her the onsie raised her hand- and as a ‘penalty’ for guessing wrong, she got to ask the mom-to-be a trivia question about pregnancy, child development or celebrity babies.  Guests were allowed to ask their own questions, but I also had multiple choice questions on hand for everyone in case they didn’t know what to ask.  

All in all it worked out great.  The mom-to-be had a lot of fun playing, and we all got a laugh from some of the baby trivia questions.  Best of all, we outfitted the baby for at least a few weeks!
I forgot to take a picture of the onsie that I made and it doesn’t really show up in the group photos, but mine was an elephant.  They’ve been my totem animal since I received a stuffed Babar as a baby (still have it to this day).  I created it from a stencil on blue & white polka dot fabric and sewed it onto a white gerber onsie.  It was adorable, and very easy to create.  A great gift idea for any new mom!
