Decorative elements included light pink and dark pink pom poms created using this Martha Stewart tutorial. Medium and large pom poms were strung by the ceiling above the guest and buffet tables, while small pom poms were used as napkin rings at each place setting. Pink ribbons cascaded down the center of the tables and were highlighted by pink votive candles in front of each guest. By the end of the shower, guests had tied the small pom poms around their wrists, wore them in their hair, or strung them through button holes on their jackets. It added a bit if whimsey and playfulness to the affair.
The mom-to-be at this baby shower requested no games, so to personalize it and offer something to entertain guests, we hung black and white prints along the back wall of the space, mounted on pink polka dot and stripe paper. The photographs represented the mom-to-be as well as her mother and grandmother (both of whom attended the shower) as babies and several of the mom-to-be with her own mother.
Guests helped themselves to a candy station to make their own favors. Cellophane bags were provided along with gift tags to tie the bags off, thanking guests for joining us in celebrating Heidi's "Little Sweetie."After a decadent appetizer buffet, dessert included coconut and strawberry Sprinkles Cupcakes. You may have thought a cupcake from Sprinkles couldn't be improved upon... unless it is adorned with a gorgeous cupcake wrapper from Bella Cupcake Couture. If you are a fan of cupcakes, you need to follow the Bella Cupcake Couture Blog. More to come on that incredible company.
Heidi was a radiant expectant mother and we wish her the best of luck with her new little girl. Thank you for letting us share your baby shower Heidi!
