Baby showers are usually pretty standard.
You play some cheesy games, everyone eats a mediocre cake, and then you spend a while watching the mom-to-be open presents. But if you’re an employee at furniture company Humanscale, things are a little bit different. They threw an amazing Beyonce-themed baby shower for their colleague Katie, who is pregnant with twins. Katie’s a HUGE Queen Bey fan, so when she found out she was expecting twins just like her idol Beyonce, the theme of the shower was basically a given.
The shower included a donut cake with a sign that read “Okay, babies, now let’s get in formation” as well as photo props featuring Beyonce lyrics. Of course, the mom-to-be got to pose for a picture in an elaborate green scarf with a floral backdrop, much like the Queen herself once did.
To top it all off, there was a card featuring a cartoon illustration of Beyonce that read “Congrats on your Bey Beys.” Genius. Talk about breaking the mold on boring baby showers.
