Baby Shower Preparation

I am making preparations for a May 2nd baby shower I am throwing for a friend at my home. Like my daughter's birthday, which I blogged about, I ordered custom invitations and water bottle labels. My friend is expecting her third child and does not know the sex of the baby, so we decided to go with a shower theme of brown, pink and blue. Another friend is making the food, I am making the sweets of course; because that is my specialty while another friend is bringing the balloons which will be brown, pink and blue.
Pictured below are the party favor bags that I just completed. I am going to make the "fun cookies suckers"  from this site and stick them in the bags.
Here is what I plan on making:
~Best Lemonade
~Fun Cookie Suckers
~Best Rolled Sugar Cookies w/ Sugar Cookie  Icing (I bought a onesie & baby bottle cookie cutter for this event.)
~Punch with a Rubber Ducky
~Coconut Poke Cake
~Chocoate Covered Strawberries
~Peanut Butter Easter Eggs (they are just so good, plus I want to put them into the blue foil cups pictured below.)
I also just got my friend's gift in the mail today. Since I am throwing her a shower, I just wanted to get her something small. I ordered a custom diaper wipes case which I know she will be thrilled with. It is also pictures below....
Am I missing anything? Any thoughts or suggestions? I will post pictures of the event once it takes place.

About Me
I am a Southern California wife and mother of one. I am a simple person that enjoys home decor, baking, and spending time with my family. You can also find me on YouTube - House of Aqua:
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making a variety of ice cream, cookies, cakes, and candies. In recent years I have branched out by making new dinner recipes and found that I enjoy the challenge.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a daughter that loves to help me bake. We spend Christmas Eve in the kitchen making special cookies for Santa together.
My cooking triumphs
I consider tempering chocolate and making caramels a triumph. You either get it right or your wrong!
My cooking tragedies
I failed several times at trying to make fondant centers for truffles. I decided to put my candymaking book away for a while!
