Ten Little Fingers, Ten Little Toes...

I am so excited to share the amazing baby shower we threw for a dear friend of mine!

Mommy-to-be is waiting to find out if she's having a Boy or Girl, so our challenge of not using Blue and Pink was so much fun to conquer. Instead of the typical gender neutral; green, yellow, brown, grey etc. I decided to go with the colors Mommy-to-be is decorating the room in. One, it made it a little more personal,  and two it allowed me to make things that mommy can use in the baby's room.

So the colors are: Navy Blue, Coral, Light Blue and Grey.

As the guests arrived they were greeted with a coral painted beach cruiser. The front basket was full of beautiful white hydrangeas and the back crate was lined with burlap and filled with bundles of diapers and wipes. An adorable tissue paper garland tied a 36" white balloon to the back leading guests to the party.

We aren't game people and don't always enjoy the baby shower games done at showers...but this one was a lot of fun! Leave out a basket of diapers and sharpies and have guests write funny messages for mom and dad to give them a laugh during those late night diaper changes. The messages that people came up with had us laughing so hard! 

The shower was outside on a beautiful Southern California April afternoon... and here are some pictures of the table, drink station, dessert table, chalkboard, décor and more...

Party Favors - filled with Bags of popcorn - Ready to Pop. Simple, easy and super cute wrapped up!

Desserts are always one of my favorite things to do at a party.  There are so many fun choices for cute desserts.

For the food we did a Brunch. Different egg bakes; Sausage and Cheddar, Ham and Swiss and Veggie with Gruyere cheese. We also had cups of fresh berries, a mixed green salad with pears and walnuts and some cute little muffins.  

It was a great shower for a great friend!
I wish her the best in her upcoming adventures of mommy-hood!

I can't wait to find out who is in there!
