A Hawkeye Baby Shower

This past Saturday I hosted a baby shower for one of my best friends Carissa. Her sister and I had a great time planning this event and couldn't think of a better theme than an Iowa Hawkeye tailgating theme for the parents that are die hard Hawkeye fans. The mommy-to-be had a wonderful time and got lots of great gifts and is now just awaiting the arrival of her son Henry David.

The adorable mommy-to-be...

These letters wouldn't stay up so we used baby socks to hold them in place!

The set up

The cute diaper cake the grandma-to-be made for her daughter with everything Hawkeye!


The sweets..

The football cookie favors...They were a hit!

The food....Need I say more!



The poms I made...VERY SIMPLE!!

Time to open some gifts.....






The mommy-to-be and me!

Lastly, the adorable mom and dad!!! They are extremely excited and cute as can be!!!
Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

What type of invites did you use?

Did you make your own invites or were you able to buy some. I'm trying to find Hawkeye invites for a baby shower.

Hi Lindsay,
I wasn't able to find Hawkeye baby shower invites, but this shower was held back in 2008. At the time is used a template from Vista print and just changed all the colors to black and gold. I would check on Etsy to see if anyone makes customized invites now.
