An exciting project for your viewing pleasure! Recently I co-hosted a sweet baby shower for a dear friend. Since my baby was a boy, I was able to channel any unfulfilled girlish obsessions into this event. Which means a lot of pink, flowers, confetti, and lace!

We kept things fairly simple, but still colorful & feminine. This could easily be a bridal shower (I'm not super into "baby" themes). Food was a simple combination of finger foods and spice cake cupcakes. I made these intricate little tissue paper flower toppers and they were SO PRETTY. Paper flowers are my spiritual gift people. We didn't intentionally top the cupcakes with flowers & nuts, but I do find it hilarious.

For activities we had the clothespin game, where you lose your pin if someone catches you saying a forbidden word (ie. baby, due, cute, etc). The person with the most pins is the winner. Another activity was baby price is right. Always more entertaining than it sounds, and mom gets to keep the goodies! Lastly we had "decorate a diaper". No filters allowed on this one—the more humor the better! New parents need a reason to smile when changing diapers at 3am.

Favors were a bag of PINK strawberry coconut popcorn for the road. Yum!

That about covers it all! These pictures make me miss the tissue paper confetti—it's just so fun! I even stuffed the invites with it. And I still love the pink/coral color palette, though only in small doses.

It was a sweet day celebrating a precious little bundle. Definitely gave me my fill of pink & posh. Now hurry up Little Miss D, I can't wait to meet you!
