Man-Shower

So last night I tweeted the following...

And in reply...SO many people told me they had NEVER heard of a diaper party.

[SAY WHAAAA???]

Shameless plug: if you don't follow me on Twitter, you're really missing out on life.
Get at me...@MrsStephHoward

Ok so where was I?

Oh ya..the diaper party.

Essentially, it's a man-shower. (No girls allowed!) You invite all the dad's friends over to show that "not all the attention is being given to mom & baby". (Whatever. If I'm carrying a baby for 9 months, gaining 30+ pounds AND pushing a child out of my vajayjay, you can bet your sweet arse that I will demand ALL the attention...)

How it works: all the guys bring a case of diapers and a case of beer and depending on the theme, depends on what they'll be doing.

I've seen all different themes:

Pampers & Poker
Babies, Beer & BBQ
Dad's, Drinks & Diapers
So on and so on...
Per usual, I couldn't fathom doing something so "typical" like a poker theme so I stumbled upon probably THE most genius "man-shower" theme ever...

{MUSTACHE BASH}

Awesome, right?! I'm not really sure what exactly it means but what I do know is that it is the most perfect theme for guys. (The girls will be lunching & shopping while the guys shower it up and then we plan on joining them a few hours later...) If I had to guess, they'll probably be doing "man" things like swimming, grilling by the pool, smoking cigars, playing washers and drinking. Shocker.

Anyways, you already know I've been pinning the shizznit out of mustache stuff on Pinterest and have already got some FAB ideas up my sleeve!

In case you're wondering how to throw thee most perfect Mustache Bash, I'm here to save the day:

Thanks to Kristen and her amazing design skillz,
we'll be mailing something like this out to all the guys!

(So manly, right?!)

(Note to self: make mustache onesie)

DUH

Stoked is an understatement.

Who knew throwing a "man-shower" could be so exciting?!

  6. We threw a diapers and drinks for a friend one time.. it was actually co -ed, but it turned into quite the party. I think his wife said 'you would have thought it was his bachelor party.'

  20. That is awesome! Down the road when I get pregnant I'll have to make sure someone puts something like "Bring a case of diapers for the mom-to-be, or a case of beer for the dad-to-be!" Lol, just in a less tacky way ;) It'd be perfect because my husband LOVES beer and brews all sorts of things.

  21. Amazingness! I'll definitely have to tell the hubs about this when our time comes. I guilt him all the time about how much weight I'll gain, sleep I'll lose, how uncomfortable I'll be, oh and the morning sickness... lovely! But he's the one who will put up with all that and the mood swings lol.

    Thanks so much for posting this! :)
