And while we’re at it, let’s show you how to have a sweet nerd baby shower too.

We featured these Game of Thrones-inspired horse-heart cupcakes last week but they were too good not to repost because this is the event they were made for.

And then there was Tauntaun kissing. All in all, I’d say it was a successful shower.
