Finally my baby shower has come and gone! After thinking of how to plan/decorate it, stressful weeks, and a snow storm that made me cancel the original day I can finally sit back, relax and enjoy the video and photos from that day. Having a boy I knew what the typical colors and themes were; browns, greens, blues, nautical, sports, animals and so on . I didn’t want that because it’s been done before trillions of times and if you know me you know I like to be a bit different. I looked on Pinterest and found bunch of ideas I loved.
We were going to have a small intimate baby shower, unlike my first one, which surprisingly I loved, but was nervous about as well. I also knew that we’d be at my mother’s house which had brown/tan undertones– not a fan of dark colors, but I wanted decorations that wouldn’t clash with it. I ran across this gorgeous photo of whites, browns, gold, beige and feel in love and knew I wanted just that.
The cakes on the sides were made by my mom and the middle cake was ordered from our family bakery Marzullo Bakery — my vision for the cake was all white with gold and I let them design it how they wanted.
The mason jars and “Twinkle Twinkle” sign were a DIY project from my friend Daniela.
The gold table-cloth was from Party City which I didn’t unfold all the way to give it the look of a runner across the table.
Of course I had to have “Guess Mommy’s Belly Size!”
Now for everyone who won a game, won a prize, and to spice it up I had winners chose from a plate which would decide what gift they got–
This one said on a sign “From My Shower To Yours”– All bought from the Dollar Tree.
A cute Eiffel Tower clock prize from Walmart
Then the food!! My mom went all out and made all the food for the baby shower. Now, this is a great host!
