Party Recap

A small and intimate shower focused on easy and simple decorations of bedtime necessities arranged in a creative way for a wow factor. Biggest hits were the lunch tables decorated to look like beds, the "midnight snacks" treats table with a cascading bed net and bedtime accessories, and the looping slideshow of professional photos of sleeping newborns that played on the flat screen during lunch.

    Tables were decorated with a pillow, stuffed animal, pacifier and photo of sleeping baby. As centerpieces we had votive holders with tea lights and three baby bottles each with the nipple removed holding a single rose in water.

    This was a hit, but actually was a back up plan. My original idea was to have my daughters sleigh crib in the living room and fill it with the presents. But I could not get it out of her room without dismantling it and due to her nap, guests were arriving in 20 minutes. So plan B was the pack and play. But the guests thought it was a cute idea anyway!!

    The bed net suspended from the ceiling and cascading open for the dessert table was a big hit and beautiful simple decoration. :)

    Mom got to take stuffed animals, pacifiers, and books home as part of her gift too, along with the baby bottle centerpieces that were holding roses.

    This is what the invitation look liked as well, but it was modified to a cute welcome sign when guests arrived and as a keepsake for Mom.
