Baby Shower Idea - Onesie Decorating Party for Guests

We had a "Onesie Decorating Station" at my baby shower; it was a Do-It-Yourself station where my guests got to paint onesies and talk with each other. My shower was held at the house of one of my mom's friends, and we used her kitchen table as a painting station where my guests painted plain white onesies for my baby-to-be. We had various stencils (shaped like animals, shapes, etc.), various paint colors, and plenty of paint brushes. It was really cute, and touching, to see my friends and family personalize a onesie just for my baby.
One of the main reasons that loved the onesie station at my baby shower is 
because it allowed the baby shower to have a more interactive atmosphere - as opposed to being separated into groups at tables like most of the baby/bridal showers I have had and attended.  The onesie station gave people a reason to get up from their seats and mingle, and I actually got to have conversations and laugh with each of my guests as they rotated between the snacks and drinks to the onesie decorating table.  I think my guests enjoyed it because they also got to talk to one another.

I highly recommend this.  Just make sure that you have a good place to hang the onesies to dry, especially if you want your guests to be able to paint both sides of the onesie, as painting cute stuff on the butt part of the baby onesie makes for a really cute outfit for baby (every baby outfit is cuter when it has cute stuff on the butt, duh).

How to Stop Crying Over Sliced Onions

Tip for Slicing Vegetables 
(such as onions):

Great for occasions like a Large Baby Shower

I despise cutting onions, and I am terrible at slicing tomatoes, so you can imagine my fear when I was put in charge of bringing the sandwich toppings for the 'Sandwich Bar' for my friend's baby shower that had sixty guests attending.  I'd be crying all day long if I cut enough onions for 60 people...just the thought of that makes my eyes water.   I didn't have the time do it, nor did I want my eyes for to burn for the next week.

Solution:  Ask the deli department at your grocery store to slice the vegetables for you.

Onions Sliced By 
Grocery Deli

Ask your local deli department at your grocery store to cut the onions for your before you spend valuable hours crying over onions and tomatoes!

These people have professional-grade slicing machines!  

Outsourcing the onion and tomato slicing was one of the greatest decisions of my life.  Not only do delis have the best slicing equipment out there, but they can slice veggies five times faster than you.  

The best part: I didn't have to cry over the onions.  My eyes didn't water - not even once.  What made me even happier:  the onions and tomatoes were sliced so thinly and perfectly.  There is absolutely no way that I could have done that.

Tomatoes Sliced by 
Grocery Deli
The grocery store in my city charges $4.99/lbs. for their food slicing service. (You don't pay for the original price of the fruit/veggie - just the $4.99/lbs.)  For example, if "Tomato A" original price was $2.50/pound when you buy it from the store (without the deli-slicing service) and "Tomato B" original price was $3.50/pound when you buy it from the store (without the deli-slicing service), then both Tomato A and Tomato B would be $4.99/pound with the deli slicing service and there would be no original price fee for either. Some stores may even do it for free (the Safeway store in Arizona once cut my onions for free).
