Baby Shower Ideas & Breakfast Fajitas (my favorite)!

My lovely sis-in-law, Kylee is finally having a baby!  I’m so happy for her and so excited to not be the only sibling with kids anymore…it’s been a long time coming.  I can’t wait for my new little nephew :)  Anyway, so this weekend I threw together a small baby shower for her…here’s just some of our group, below.  That’s her in the blue shirt, next to me.  Look at that little belly!  Does that look like a girl having a baby next week?!?  Crazy.

Anyway, I thought I would share with you what we did because it was so fun and intimate…
I had everyone come over for breakfast.  We served up my very favorite, Breakfast Fajitas.  They are SO seriously easy to make and I can eat like 10 of them.  I think everyone that knows me has been served these at my house at one time or another.  A long time ago I went to…oh, what is that restaurant called…Mia’s Cafe (is it Mia’s??)  Anyway, I have never like anything I’ve ordered there, until this…and I love it.  Luckily, it was so common sense that I could make it myself that I don’t have to go back!  Phew!
I’m not going to do a picture tutorial for you, because it’s too easy.  You would be offended.
Here’s the recipe:

We also served these with a fresh fruit salad, Mexi hash browns, and bread pudding.  Yum!
So, I didn’t really want to do a shower where we played game after game…and after lots of internet searching, I came across a couple of ideas I liked.
First, I picked up a couple packages of plastic binkis at Michael’s craft store.  I tied ribbons on them and gave one to each guest to wear around their neck.  Each time they caught someone that had said the word “baby,” they got to take that person’s binki.  The person with the most binkis at the end of the shower won a special prize (we did the movie, “Three Men and a Baby” and a bag of Baby Ruth).
Meanwhile, we appliqued onesies for the little babe!  I picked up a few packages of onesies, cut out several picture patterns to be traced, a roll of heat bond, and several different fabric quarters.
See that table my husband built me for Valentine’s Day??  Oh, I love him.  (Now, I just have to paint it and find some cute chairs…ugh.)  Anyway, making onesies was really fun, relaxing and made everyone feel comfortable.  We got all the pictures cut and ironed on, just to be extra cautious we wanted to sew around the edges of the pictures…but, we decided to save that for later because Kylee still had presents to open!
Everyone signed their name on the bum of the onesie that they made.  That way baby/mom will always remember who was at their party and who made that special one.  It was a fun morning!

  3. Making onesies is a million times better than playing games! Love it!

  4. Congrats to Kylee and Noah!! I am soo happy for them… I love the breakfast fajita idea it’s my go-to on saturday mornings- I will have to change things up and try some of your ingredients.

  5. way cute ideas! Where did you find the pictures for the onesies? I love them but there’s not way I would be able to draw them myself.

  6. Allie,

    I didn’t draw them…I just did a Google search for random things. Like, I would type “helicopter clip art” or “cowboy boot clip art” and then change the search/sort to “images”. I would then just pick an image that would be easy to trace and copy/paste it into a Word document to print off. I would re-size it in there and print it on card stock. Cut out the picture and you have a stencil!

    Does that make sense?

  7. I’m sorry I missed it! Cute ideas cuz! I love the table by the way!

  8. I love the onesie idea! So cute, and they come out so good! I’m sure your sister-in-law is going to treasure those forever.
