Baby Girl Shower

Last week I shared with you the invitations we designed for my good friends baby shower. Today you will be able to see all of the other elements for this custom designed baby girl shower! We started with a color palette of light pink, light green and white. The invitations were based on a bedding collection from Serena and Lily.

After the invitations were designed, I sat down with my very talented Sister in law, Tiffany Burdick with The Petal Boutique to design these gorgeous floral arrangements.

The floral we picked for this pink, green and white color palette were light pink stock, Trachellium, mini green hydrangea, green tea roses, Queen Anne's lace, green hanging Amaranthus, mini pink carnations, and pink titanic roses.

I love how fresh and sweet the flowers looked, perfect for a baby girl's shower!

We chose to arrange all of the flowers in square white ceramic vases

All of the linens were purchased from The BBJ Linen Store, and custom sewn to fit each table.

Our Mommy to be wanted a sweets table to be a part of her shower. The requests she had were funfetti cupcakes and one of her favorites powdered sugar brownies.

I have to warn you these next few pictures might make you hungry! I am a huge sweets person and had to hold myself back from stealing a few bites of my sweets table creation before the guests arrived. Although since I made most of these treats I was able to do a little taste testing along the way...shhhhh.

Great view of the entire sweets table. It included Nana's apple cake, Oreo balls, chocolate chip cookies, mint meltaways, Trinidad's, chocolate covered pretzels, funfetti cupcakes, snicker doodle cookies, and powdered sugar brownies. Yummmm!

Oreo Balls! These are such a fun treat for any occasion. For this event I chose to dye the white chocolate drizzle PINK! For the recipe of this yummy treat contact me here.

Chocolate chip cookies!

Powdered sugar brownies, hungry yet?

We had three different drink options for the guests, water, ginger ale punch and the raspberry lemonade shown here. Love this drink dispenser by Colin Cowie. It has a separate compartment for the ice so it keeps your drink cool but it does not get watered down! Genius!

We couldn't have a baby shower without the food. Veggies, fruit, cheese and sausage, mixed green salad, Cole slaw, potato salad, Italian beef, and pasta were on the menu.

When the guests arrived they were asked so sign into the guestbook and leave a wish or piece of advice for the mommy to be.

Loved this one and had to share it. It says "What happens at Grandmas, stays at Grandmas"

Here is Jenny our mommy to be!

She was blessed with so many gifts we almost couldn't see her!

Look at this humidifier!!! Adorable!

Once the gift opening had started the guestbook was used to record all the gifts that Jenny received.

We had one boy in attendance at the baby shower. Little Baby Austin, Jenny's nephew. So sweet!

Jenny was smiling the entire shower, especially when she received this dress! I had such a great time designing and participating in this shower. I just can't wait for the little "diva" to arrive!
