This weekend I had the pleasure of helping to throw one of our best friends a surprise baby shower. Shanna (the guest of honor and also the master mind behind Envy Design Studios), along with Baby "D", was successfully fooled into thinking she wasn't going to have a baby shower while in Boise for her annual 3 week visit.
I was assigned the decorations, and with only 2 weeks to plan the party and a budget to stick to, I came up with a pretty in pink whimsy theme, with butterflies being the main attraction.
All the paper was ordered through Paper Source. The vases were wrapped in the pretty paper, and the place mats were made by tracing cardboard and gluing contrasting paper to it.
Pink hydrangea, lilies, and bear grass made the pretty centerpieces.
Foam core was covered in the paper and used as decorative place settings on the food table. Tissue paper flowers adorned with little pink rhinestones also made an appearance throughout.
The favors of the evening: Sugar and cinnamon coated almonds.
One of the pillows made for the occasion. Shanna got to take all of the decorations home after the party, since the color scheme and decor matched the baby's nursery!
It was a great party, complete with great friends....but the real stars of the show? All of our littlest guests:
Pretty stinkin' cute, don't you think?
Happy Monday, and congrats Shanna!
