I love a good party- this is no surprise to those of you who know me. Last weekend, my mother and I threw my cousin a baby shower. It is her first baby (a girl) and she is a wedding planner with great style so we knew we wanted it to be extra special. I decided against the usual themes and chose a "sugar and spice" theme of flowers, paisleys and swirls. We went for a color palette of mostly pinks and purple with just a bit of orange and lime green sprinkled in there. to keep "baby" in an otherwise adult party, I included diapers and vintage pink pacifiers wherever I could. I think my favorite part was the centerpieces made of single tier diaper cakes with a short vase in the center so that I could add flowers in the shower colors (I got very lucky at the florist that morning when their selection of cut flowers offered exactly what I wanted to put them together). We had a great time and she seemed to love it. Isn't she beautiful by the way?!
Welcome to the Shower for Baby S!!
Candy favor bar- "too bad" we had so much left
