Last weekend, I co-hosted a baby shower for a good friend of mine that is having a baby girl in June. The nursery will be pink and green, so we decided to carry that color scheme through to the shower. The shower included brunch, a few games, lots or gifts and socializing. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite details from the shower.
Clothesline Party Banner: By far my favorite decoration from the party was this fun clothesline party banner. I loved the mixture of letters and cute baby clothes, plus the clothes made a great addition to my baby gift. Plus, I loved the lacey detail around the lettering!
Table Décor: The tables were covered with green and white polka dot fabric tablecloths or runners. Bright pink floral arrangements of tulips and lilies adorned the table and doubled as give-aways for our game winners. Light pink, bright pink and lime green pom-poms hung from the light fixtures.
Wishes for Mom & Baby: At each table spot, we left a blank “wishes for mom & baby” card for friends to leave thoughtful and funny advice.
Make-a-Mobile: I gathered an assortment of different width pink ribbon, pink beads, and fabric flowers. Each guest strung one ribbon with beads and I attached it to a pink painted embroidery hoop, creating a beautiful mobile. It was a fun party activity and a great take home gift for baby’s new room.
The brunch spread was amazing! My favorite new treat was monkey bread. I could eat that all day. On the menu were:
Quiche: Lorraine, Vegetable and Sausage & Mushroom
Cranberry Spinach Salad
Chicken Salad Sandwiches
Bagels and Various Cream Cheeses
Yum! And for dessert, we had chocolate cupcakes and an amazing homemade strawberry cake. I’m also a bit obsessed with my new chalkboards – perfect for displaying our menu for the party.
I think everyone had a great time and definitely left full. We’ll call it a huge success!
