Now this party was the most delicate and cute for a baby boy whose arrival was a long time coming. So the mom-to-be wanted to call this party "It was worth the wait..." so of course, we had to use this phrase throughout the planning and styling. To make this shower as boyish as possible we created this clip art from scratch. The onesie with a tie has been used before but I wanted to make this one myself.
So starting with the invitation, I used bling cards stock in shades of blue, white and gray in an enclosing envelope so that we could incorporate the gift registry cards.
The setting was created by a local decorator who used white curtains to block the sun and create a backdrop for all the cute decorations: tissue and flower pom poms, lanterns, ribbon... For the candy bar we used our mom-to-be's bedroom furniture! It turned out amazing. We also used a desk and chair to display cake pops and mini cakes and a side table for a baby basket with heirloom baby blankets.
The banner hanged from the chest of drawers to pull everything together.
Another side table was used for our huge wishing tree.
Party favors included hand made personalized soaps and mint tins. The soaps were packed on silver jewelry boxes and tied with satin ribbon and fabric covered buttons.
The candy bar included sugar cookies, jumbo marshmallows, kisses, gummy rings all in shades of blue and placed in apothecary jars decorated with satin ribbon and candy labels.
Silver favor boxes to fill with candy...
Finally, we created these darling cards and hanged them from the back of guests chairs. They all had different messages that defined the blessing that this baby meant for this family.
