I, along with some wonderful and talented friends, just threw a baby shower for my best friend. She is having a baby girl, and it was so fun to celebrate this new life with a girly shower.
The theme was centered on a color palette of purple and pink. We had a lovely sit down luncheon, cake and iced coffee on vintage crystal snack plates, and a wonderful time chatting and chatting…and chatting:)
Here are a few pics of the decor. Looking for a different way to use your tissue paper pom poms? Hang them in a vertical grouping. Using a glittery ribbon and a handmade label will jazz up any glass container. Flowers can be expensive, so think of other alternatives. Using a wooden dowel and some fabric or paper, make your own flowers! Placing the invitation in a picture frame allows your usual decor to transform your party. The purple cloth napkins added a pop of color to the table setting. Place cards are an easy and inexpensive way to personalize a dinner. Questions in each place card were a great way for everyone to learn more about the Mom-to-Be.
I wish I had more pictures of the actual shower, but I guess it’s easier to take pictures of the decorating! O, yeah, did I mention the power went out right before the shower?! Well, a bag full of tea lights added a special ambiance 🙂
