The shower was for second time mom, who is expecting her first little girl in just a few short weeks. Though it was originally planned for outdoors we ended up deciding to bring it inside rather last minute due to the unreliable weather we had had the last couple of days, both with rain and the incredibly hot humidity! Though we had a "make it work" moment, everything turned out beautiful. The colors of the shower were raspberry and orange, creating a both feminine and modern style. One of my favorite quotes is "We give our children roots & wings", this was incorporated into the shower with the use of butterflys and flowers.
A combination of brunch and dessert items were served along with Mimosa's and Raspberry Lemonade. Food included mini donuts, macarons, mini muffins, grapes with goat cheese and walnuts, cherry pie pops, chocolate cupcakes with raspberry buttercream and egg breakfast muffins. One of the mom-to-be's favorite treats is Penuche Fudge, which is a brown sugar fudge that her mother always used to make for her. I was so glad to have this recipe shared with me and to be able to surprise her by having this at the shower.
Hand stamped wish cards were available for guests to leave a wish for mom-to-be and/or her baby girl. A small table was set up with beading and other crafts for the younger guests, small favor boxes were filled with pink and orange gumballs and topped with a butterfly were at the table for them as well. Sets of custom note cards were sent home will all of the guests.
