A couple weekends ago, I had the honor of throwing my dear friend, Heather (who’s due in July), a baby shower. She wasn’t planning on having a shower given it’s her third, but I said nonsense! We gotta celebrate this beautiful baby and glowing mama. I kept it small + tasteful, and the morning ended up being perfect. Keep reading to see all the sweet little details of her baby shower brunch. *And also, a shoutout to my sister-in-law and Heather’s mother-in-law who helped!

Invites

The mama to be (x3) is a farm girl at heart, so when I saw these invites, I knew they were perfect. I get most my of party invitations from Etsy, but this go around I decided to try Canva. I’m hooked. I found a template I liked (simply switched out the blue for pink), an just downloaded and sent for print. This Canva template is only available thru the PRO/paid version, but I did happen to find it on Etsy (linked here). I added confetti and sealed the envelopes with these foil embossed stickers that match oh-so perfectly.

Decorations

Since this isn’t her first baby, decorations were kept to a minimum so it wouldn’t feel overwhelmingly like a baby shower. I had bouquets of wildflowers on different tables (daisies, lilies, peonies) and a felt flower garland on the mantel where she opened gifts.

Tying in the duck theme from the invitation, I also had the book ‘Make Way For Ducklings’ on display for people to sign as a guestbook. I thought it would be a sweet keepsake for Heather and her baby girl to read for years to come.

Food+ Drinks

Since the shower was a brunch, I tried to have a nice array of grab-n-go-n-sit foods. I had a large charcuterie board (or char-cute-erie as I called it) topped with mini quiches, cinnamon rolls, muffins, and grapes. There was also yogurt with an assortment of berries + granola for make-your-own parfaits.

For beverages, I had coffee and some (pink💗) seltzers. I knew I wanted to serve mimosas but added a twist. Rather than serve your basic mimosa with orange juice, I chose watermelon juice — They were so refreshing, and all the ladies commented on how delicious they were. Definitely a hit! I also froze watermelon chunks and lime slices to add to the juice pitcher.

+ PRO TIP: Pick up some acrylic signs — these were $2.99 at Hobby Lobby — and a nail art pen. I typed the words on my laptop with a fun font and folded my screen down to trace it onto the signs. It worked like a charm, and after the shower I simply used glass cleaner to wipe off the pen.

Games

With a super intimate shower (we had about 10 guests), I chose one game along with a diaper raffle. The game was called ‘A-Z All Things Baby’, and you have to think of a baby item that starts with each letter of the alphabet. It’s a lot harder than it sounds, lol. It was hilarious hearing people’s answers, and we all got a lot of laughs. Again, this template was one I found on the PRO/paid version of Canva, but I found a similar template here on Etsy.

Gift Basket

Since my girlfriend only had essentially diapers and wipes on her registry, lol, I just had to put together a small gift basket to spoil baby girl! Fun fact: The basket itself was the card basket from my own baby shower.


SHOP THIS BASKET

Favors

The good thing about a smaller shower is you can splurge a little more on the favors. I bought these small burlap bags off Amazon (which come in a pack of 24) and filled them each with some R&R for our guests — a bubble oxygen mask (obsessed with these now, btw!) and a delicious smelling shower steamer. I will definitely be re-purchasing both of these products for myself. They’re so good! Hopefully the ladies enjoyed them, too.

And there you have it!

It was such a beautiful, intimate celebration for my dear friend. All the ladies were so kind, and I hope Heather and baby felt the love. We love you, baby Scott, and I can’t wait to meet you!
