We also found these super cute, hand-dipped berries that can be purchased. These would look great on the dessert table, or you could individually wrap them in cellophane bags and give them out as favors. Click on the picture for more details.

Sports theme baby shower game ideas

Sports trivia would be a great game to play, especially if you are having a couples shower.

Can YOU tackle trivia? Super Bowl party games

Set up some sports video games and have a video game competition- sure to score more points with the men ;-).

Baby bottle race:

Fill some baby bottles with beer or any other beverage. Have the guys race to see who can finish their bottle first. Let the women sit back and laugh and take lots of pictures.

Ball Toss:

Have everyone stand in a circle. The first person tosses the ball to someone else. The person who catches the ball has to name a baby item (pacifier, diaper, crib, etc.). They have 5 seconds to name an item and then toss the ball to someone else. If they don't say a word in time or repeat one that has already been said, they are out of the game. Keep playing until the last person is left. Give the winner a prize.
