Recently, a small group of friends gathered together to celebrate the upcoming birth of a precious baby girl. It seems like most of the baby showers I’ve been to or coordinated recently have been for boys, so this was a fun change of theme (and color scheme). We went with pink, green, and yellow. I loved hanging streamers and I was able to use some extra flowers from the wedding I did the weekend before to help decorate the house.
It was a co-hosted party that was held at my house. We made our classic mashed potato bar (mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and all the fixin’s served in martini glasses, just because it looks cool), and Bryan cooked up some chicken tenders to slice for some added protein for the ladies. (He then quickly vacated the house so as not to be overrun by females. Bless his heart.) Annie brought a veggie tray and pretzel salad, and Shana handled dessert–cupcakes and raspberry almond brownies. Everything was so good!
We started with prayer and food, followed by plenty of conversation and gifts. Jan already has an adorable little boy, so she has the basics, and requested mostly girl clothes and diapers for this shower.
We concluded the evening with everyone creating a custom headband for baby girl! The first couple of minutes several of the guests weren’t sure where to start, but after seeing a couple tips and tricks, they all jumped right in and came up with some pretty unique fashion pieces for this little lady to crawl in style.
The idea for the headbands came from MondoMom.com.
