Baby Shower :: For a “Little Deer”

My bestie recently had her 4th baby, a little girl!! Baby L arrived February 5 and of course we had to celebrate!! I wanted to make sure that Kathy’s mom could be here so we waited 3 weeks to celebrate this little blessing.  When deciding on a theme, deers kept coming to mind, L’s daddy is a hunter and the family loves outdoorsy fun, so that theme seemed to fit perfect.

I was thrilled when I found “Little Deer” printables on Etsy that would 100% compliment what I was going for!  I ordered online, downloaded the file and off to Staples I went to print my decorations!

To compliment the printed decor, I used chalkboards and tulips around the house for added touches.  My friend Britt baked and decorated the most perfect cupcakes in pink & green to match and we were ready to party!

Vintage Themed Baby Shower!

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!

Hot Air Balloon Themed Baby Shower

 

In May one of my best friends had a sweet baby girl, so to celebrate we had a ‘Hot Air Balloon’ themed shower!!  It was a lot of fun and had some sweet details.

This is the banner that was hung over the entrance, so guests knew where to go! I found all the printables on Etsy, so it was easy to make the decor!

I had 3 of the decorative balls, so I added plastic cups with string to create hot air ballons.

The food table.

I found these mini-water bottles at SuperStore and then used packing tape to label them with cute labels.

I made the banners for the straws and served drinks in mason jars!

We had to have a candy buffet, the little cones were used to ‘make your own candy cup’ it was a huge hit! I used miscellaneous jars that I had at home and jars from my friends house so that there were different heights and shapes.

It was a lovely day for an outdoor shower and everything turned our beautifully.  A lot of what we used was things found around the house + a little TLC and you can come up with some fantastic decor items!
