Garden Baby Shower Luncheon

Ashley S By Ashley S  in Baby Shower


Party Recap

On Sunday I hosted a baby shower for a dear friend who is expecting a little boy in less than a week, hooray! This was an extra fun shower to plan for because the guest list was for a dozen lovely ladies {rather than 30}, so I was able to spend some extra time on the details--I even used real plates {oooo, ahhhh}.

I chose a "spring time" theme in turquoise, lime green,
orange and yellow.

The main decor was made up of paper lanterns purchased at the dollar store, paper pinwheels I made, tissue paper Pom Poms I made and then simple daisy flower arrangements.

To stay within the "garden/backyard" theme I bought a 12 pack of mason jars at my local grocery store and used them for cups. I used extra large malt straws purchased from Michael's.

I also made a paper "Welcome Baby" banner. I made the banner using scrapbook paper and pre-cut letters that come in a pack {also available at Michael's}. I glue gunned each paper flag down on to a long strand of turquoise ribbon.

I kept the meal simple yet totally yummy: a Spring Time salad with toasted almonds, strawberries, mandarin oranges a yummy dressing and iceberg lettuce, Chicken salad sandwhiches, Fruit salad, Bean and Corn salsa with pita chips, Spring Cupcakes and a lemon cake from Costco.

I made button earrings as my party favor and attached them to a tag that read "cute as a button" {you know, for the cute baby}.

All in all, it was a totally awesome baby shower!
