A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of volunteering my time to this colorful Baby shower event given by Operation Shower. This is a non-profit organization I’ve been happy to give my time to over the past 6 years, and it’s always such a joyous occasion. Operation Shower gives group baby showers to the wives of our deployed service men, who are ‘expecting’. Gerber was the major sponsor for this event, which was held at the Gaylord Hotel at National Harbor, Maryland.

The theme of the baby shower was “Go Wild” and incorporated lots of color and whimsical toy animals. There were three different centerpiece designs that spread out over about 15 tables; each one topped by an oversize balloon. That’s sort of the signature style of all the OS events: 3 distinct but coordinated centerpieces that are very DIY friendly. That means you can get tons of ideas that you can incorporate into your own celebration at home, or larger event planning.

Graphics for the event were designed by Small Moments and help pull the entire look together.

Colorful Baby Shower Event

This colorful baby shower event was held as a luncheon, and was catered by the hotel. The moms-to-be were showered with more gifts than you can imagine, from the classic shower-in-a-box filled with toys, clothes, & everyday needs, to bedding and car seats, etc. There were also special prizes given for games and raffle winners.

As with any baby shower one would host at home, there were activities and plenty of entertainment. The moms were able to create their own custom onesie at the craft table, as well as have loads of “selfie” fun at the photo booth provided by DJ Max Powers {LOVED the setup!}. Check out the photo booth pics we volunteers took, above!

At the end of the day 40 lucky ladies were showered with everything they could need to help them start their life with a new baby, including 39 new friends. To see more & find out how you can get involved, follow Operation Shower on Facebook.
