In this first shower, I went with a colorful palette that leaned to be more feminine with the hot magenta hue since my friend was having a baby girl. And for her custom invite, I used this fun baby rhyme that we once heard as children – (insert a girl's name) and (insert a boy's name) sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G, First comes love , Then comes marriage, Then comes (insert a girl's name) with a baby carriage. Obviously, I modified the rhyme to be more fitting for the invite.
For table centerpieces, we got hot magenta pink tulips, and I arranged them in my white vases leftover from my wedding reception. For a touch of orange, I tied polk-a-dot ribbon bows. Also, we had two larger white vases filled with magenta pink and yellow-orange roses.
For the shower favors for all the guests, we had a candy bar filled with orange gummies, chocolate swizzle sticks, white & pink mint candies and pink lemonade gumballs that fit perfectly with the decor. I purchased four apothecary jars and hand decorated them all with a variety of polka-a-dot ribbons and made a custom sign saying "sweet favors for sweet people."
And I can't forget the delectable and beautiful 3-tiered shower cake designed and made by my friend's co-worker, Precious. She did an awesome job pulling in the colors from the invite and the custom baby carriage cake topper made it extra sweet!
And here are a few snapshots of myself with my prego friend, Manisha, and the rest of the party hosts. Everyone did a great job pulling it all together, and the parents-to-be were loving it all.
