I am so excited to share the amazing baby shower we threw for a dear friend of mine!
Mommy-to-be is waiting to find out if she's having a Boy or Girl, so our challenge of not using Blue and Pink was so much fun to conquer. Instead of the typical gender neutral; green, yellow, brown, grey etc. I decided to go with the colors Mommy-to-be is decorating the room in. One, it made it a little more personal, and two it allowed me to make things that mommy can use in the baby's room.
So the colors are: Navy Blue, Coral, Light Blue and Grey.
As the guests arrived they were greeted with a coral painted beach cruiser. The front basket was full of beautiful white hydrangeas and the back crate was lined with burlap and filled with bundles of diapers and wipes. An adorable tissue paper garland tied a 36" white balloon to the back leading guests to the party.
We aren't game people and don't always enjoy the baby shower games done at showers...but this one was a lot of fun! Leave out a basket of diapers and sharpies and have guests write funny messages for mom and dad to give them a laugh during those late night diaper changes. The messages that people came up with had us laughing so hard!
