Superbowl Inspired Baby Shower

Last January I had the honor of co-hosting a football themed baby shower for a sweet friend. She was having her first baby- a boy- and wanted pizza served at her shower. The other co-hosts and I figured that if she wanted pizza, why not do a football theme and serve other foods you would serve at a Superbowl party- with a bit of a twist? So the first thing we did was find out our friends favorite football team (the New York Giants) and used their colors as a starting point. We fashioned the initials of the babies name […]

A Vintage/Anthropologie Inspired Little Man Baby Shower

Fox Cake

I’m excited to share this vintage, Anthropologie, little man inspired baby shower with you all today! Back in April a sweet friend of mine was going to be having a baby boy. I wanted to help plan/style the party. Since Tish (my friend) is a lover of all things eclectic, and is a photographer, it made sense to combine the two loves and create this dessert table. We wanted to bring an indoor nursery outside and created a faux wall to help feature the desserts. We used family pictures, art, “G’ for baby Greyson, and a DIY deer head (my […]

Bekah’s “She’s News to the World” Baby Shower

Back in September (2011-yeah, I’m getting caught up baby!), my friends and I hosted a baby shower for our friend Bekah.  After sitting down one night and brainstorming, we decided to do a newspaper themed shower.  Since papers are black and white (well, sort of) we decided the accent color would be hot pink (Bekah is a girlie girl and was a having a girl so it made sense!) Here is a shot of the table.  We served brunch. Pinterest was our friend with this shower! For the backdrop my husband designed a mock newspaper.  We used a picture of […]

Robot Baby Shower (Because I sort of failed to post these in 2010…)

Robot Dessert Table

This was the 3rd dessert table/full on party I ever did (with the help of my girl Ofelia and a ton of other women from church).  I had planned on posting these a year and a half ago but never got around to it.  Lisa (the mom-of-honor) wanted robots so we gave her robots.  We did a gray and yellow color scheme that was similar to what they were doing for the nursery.   For the food we served a build your own crepe bar as well as croissants, deli meats, bacon (because every party needs bacon- can I get […]

Baby on Board Baby Shower (Nautical Theme)

This is a shower I did in October for a friend who had a beautiful baby boy named Jude.  She mentioned wanting to do a nautical theme in his room so I figured if we made that the theme, she could use some of the props for his room afterward! I thought it would be really fun to have a yarn wreath with a twist- wrapped to look like a life preserver.  This is what came out of it. It was super easy to make.  Just get a foam wreath from Hobby Lobby or Michaels, and wrap yarn around it. […]

The BEST baby shower gift for 1st time mommies

IMG_3133-1

A little over 2 1/2 years ago Greg and I welcomed Asa into the world.  He has been a joy and a wonderful addition to our family.  A few months before he was born a friend threw a baby shower for me and we were fortunate to have many friends and family shower us with gifts.  Everything from diapers and wipes to clothes to highchairs and a car seat/stroller combo were included in the gifts that were graciously provided for us. If I remember right, every one of those gifts was used and cherished in its time.  There is one […]
