Phillie's (Baseball) Themed Open House Shower
My little sister is due with her first little one in a few months (a boy!) and requested a very large (65+ people) and very casual shower. She's very down-to-earth and requested "real" food like Tomato Pie/Pizza and Soft Pretzels and no games/girly stuff for her special day. She and the father are HUGE Philadelphia Phillie's fans (the nursery theme is "Vintage Phillies" and is in cream/burgundy), so we thought a Phillie's themed shower would provide the casual atmosphere that she wanted while still making it personal.
She knew the date of the shower, so the theme was the big surprise. Here she is as she walked in (top left) and saw everything! We had balloon centerpieces weighted in buckets of peanuts (right, and detail in lower left) and a "Souvenirs" table (which was actually a covered hot tub!) for the gifts (bottom center).
