I love planning parties!
I so enjoy the planning of the details, putting together decorations, envisioning how it will all go together and then seeing it all come to completion as we set-up! It truly is a passion of mine. If I had unlimited money and space I would definitely have the sweetest decoration collection and throw parties all the time, but for now, this makes me happy!
My bestfriend had her 2nd baby girl in April, I guessed it was going to be a girl. So much so, I bought yarn for the baby blanket before she was born – pink yarn! I started planning in my head some ideas, and thanks to Pinterest it all came together. Together with her sister, we came up with a perfect themed and decoration ideas for the shower. Vintage!! I love everything vintage, and it was the perfect theme to celebrate baby M.
Now for the fun parts :: Decorations & Food!
First, the food. We decided to keep it simple, lemonade & water to drink, and then veggies, fruit and some dainties (scones and muffins) to eat. It was perfect, not too heavy, easy to plan, and yummy to eat. We served most things on glass or white dishes set on a beautiful table that had a simple pink table runner and doilies (the real ones, made by my grandma).
Now, for the decorations. Bunting banners, chalkboards, doilies, birdcages and mason jars adorned the house transforming it into a lovely looking vintage scene. We set up a pink and white polka-dot pinwheel at the door to welcome guest in, had fresh flowers all over, and even served our drinks in mason jars. It was perfect. Instead of doing games, we had a craft for everyone to participate in: Maisie’s ABC Book. We asked each guest to fill out a page which contained a letter and then it will be put together as a book for her as a keepsake.
Mom and babe were well loved and celebrated and it was the perfect sunshiney day for a babyshower!Pin It
