As an event planner, my brain never stops working. I’m always looking for new ideas, fresh takes on old traditions, and techniques I can use in the future. Recently, I had the joy of attending a Baby Shower as a guest. I left with a fresh take on the old tradition of prizes for the guests and I want to share it with you!
Everyone loves a game of Baby Shower Bingo – and by “everyone”… I mean “me.” I like to think I’ve mastered the technique of creating my Bingo card over the years. Utilizing the Free Space to my advantage, studying the registry, noting the way presents are wrapped to guess what may be inside – these are all the ways to guarantee success! But I digress.
My techniques paid off and I was awarded the first Baby Shower Bingo prize:
How cool is this?! Typically the prizes are lotions, candles, or something else a lady is sure to enjoy. However, this Baby Shower put a super fun spin on tradition and made the prize out of Mommy and Baby favorites! Each item in the basket was labeled with whose favorite item it was and why. A few examples:
Jar of Peanut Butter because Baby craves it.
CD of Halloween music because it’s Mommy’s favorite holiday.
Fleece blanket because Mommy and Baby need lots of rest.
I LOVE this idea! I can’t wait for the next Baby Shower I get to help out with so that I can suggest this as an option!
Have you ever seen a creative prize like this? What’s the most creative prize you’ve seen?
