Inside Ashley Iaconetti’s Baby Shower: Cute Gifts to Guessing Games
The soon-to-be-mom and her husband, Jared Haibon, enjoyed an exhilarating celebration on December 12, 2021, ahead of their baby boy's arrival.
Snuggle Me Organic, a baby care manufacturing company, sponsored the blue and silver-themed baby shower organized at Bottino, an Italian restaurant in New York City.
Iaconetti opened up about the decorations in an interview with E! News a day later.
She shared that her friend Maura Gaudio from Happening Entertainment and her team put together the party decorations.
As per her accounts, they went with the design for two particular reasons. "One, the boy, and two, because it's winter," she explained, adding that the silver decors gave the winter feel.
Iaconetti also mentioned the celebration was cozy and "very pretty" with stars in the sky and fun-filled games.
Her sister, Lauren Iaconetti, reportedly did most of the game planning.

As apparent on her Instagram feed and stories from the special day, Iaconetti looked stunning in a long teal gown and big gold hoop earrings.
And the 33-year-old received a bunch of adorable gifts from her guests, including a personalized New England Patriots ornament.
Fellow Bachelor in Paradise alum Carly Waddell gifted the mom-to-be with Jonas Brothers and the "I'm in a boy band" onesies.
She also received The Bachelor—themed navy blue onesie with a print that read, "Future Bachelor."
In addition, she got a handmade play mat from her best friend's mom and a fabulous dress set, including a hoodie and army pants.
Admittedly, the Bachelor in Paradise star had the most fun in the baby shower.
She had a "great group of girls," although half of her guests couldn't make it to the party due to COVID.
Despite the odds, Iaconetti had a blast with the round of people who attended.
"I always feel like that's the way a party should be," she gushed, sharing that it was perfect.
About The Baby Shower Games
Iaconetti and her friends relished delicacies and drinks during the party.
Besides food, the organizers also planned multiple games for the partygoers.
One of the games the attendees played was a guessing game. All guests took turns assuming the circumference of her baby bump and cutting a piece of measuring tape.

The only person who matched the size was a woman who had signed Iaconetti's husband, Jared Haibon, for The Bachelorette and helped the couple connect.
Moreover, the guests also played a candy melting game. The host would melt candy bars in a diaper, and the attendees would have to figure out which candy was melted.
Besides, they also played The Price Is Right-inspired game, where they all guessed the price of baby products.
All in all, Iaconetti's baby shower looked like a mom-to-be's version of paradise.
The celebration came five months after the reality star and her husband Haibon announced they were expecting their first child.
