I thought I might as well blog my baby shower before our babe Everett arrives and only leaves me time to snuggle and adore his little itty bitty parts. For my third and last baby shower, I really wanted to reflect more of my personal style then a classic baby shower. I love all things modern with a twist of midcentury feel, everything clean and classic, and lots of plants so that’s where my heart decided to take my ideas and turn them into my babe brunch. Indigo, tie dye and ferns laid the foundation for my color pallet and I couldn’t be happier with the way everything got literally pieced together. I grabbed items from everywhere, Ikea to store fronts in Downtown LA, while purchasing delectable desserts and renting gorgeous stands. I wish I could say I accomplished this feat all by myself, but thank goodness I didn’t have to because I wouldn’t have finished in time. My sister and her husband along with my husband all contributed to my boho-inspired intimate baby shower brunch. I can’t say thank you enough for how much I adore them for all their love and support .
We kept the itinerary simple by only playing a few fun games. My favorite game what guessing the title of the most poplar children’s books. The reader of the year, my mother, would have won but that wouldn’t have been fair. The runner up was my dear friend Charm who just so happens two have two toddlers and is a teacher. Hmm, I guess that wasn’t too fair to all the other ladies either. Ha! What I love the most is to give, so what better way to show my appreciation to each guest for attending then to give them something that I would love. Each friend and family member had a chance to create their own DIY hanging succulent terrarium. It turned out to be a huge hit! After that, each guest was asked to draw an image that would represent the letter of whichever alphabet card they had chosen. I have to say I loved watching everyone color and create their best work so that I would have a full alphabet card collection for my babe Everett.
Oh and I can’t forget about the beautiful personalized calligraphy that I ordered from a hip instagram follower. My dear sweet girlfriend Svea also came to the rescue the day before my shower to help me design the Pinterest wall hanging, which I loved so much that its now it’s hanging in my house. Also big hugs to my girl Nancy, she makes amazing cakes and her decorating skills are superb, but I didn’t want her to do any work so instead she baked my cake and covered it in fondant and I tried my very best to decorate it. I hope I lived up to her cake decorating standards!
