Babes and mama are meant to be showered with love.
A sweet, springtime baby shower is just what both moms-to-be, and the her girl gang, need this season.
Queue the minimalist balloons and pink peonies, please...
Need to jazz up your party space in a flash? We love a balloon covered ceiling treatment.
Place dozens of white balloons together to add drama and party wow.
The room instantly looks like a floating cloud...
Add fun photos of the mama and father to be to the balloon treatment.
Print out small mini size photos and add pops of color to the back with pastel cardstock, adhered to photos with double sided tape. Tape them to the balloons strings at various heights for interest and a personal detail.
To add focal points to the party space, add in the same color oversized balloons, tied with pretty blush silk ribbons.
These add a big pop of decor - and highlight where guests can move for cocktails at the bar, versus the tasting bar for the shower, versus the sweet table for dessert.
The perfect flower for spring and for baby girl? Lush pink peonies, of course.
Long dining tables mean long collections of blooms down the table.
Vintage glass bottles filled with parrot tulips and peony are simple, yet elegant.
It's the sweet, little baby details that really set the shower mood.
I hand carried these tiny french Gien china plates home from Paris just for Suzy's shower - they made the lunch tasting bar and sweets table pop - the illustrations are just so petite and sweet.
Pull out special pieces of family heirloom china to layer in thoughtful, unique details.
A beautifully wrapped gift is almost as important as the gift itself. Remember when Oprah shared on live tv that she doesn't even want to open up our wrapped gifts, when someone hands one to her? Ha!
It's all about presentation, so tie in all the baby details to your gift to make it extra special. Wrap gifts with kraft paper, natural jute twine, and fresh herbs for the gorgeous touch above. Tuck a tiny stuffed animal under the twine for an instant heart melt.
This gift though...
Tuck an oversize handmade card into your gift for a mini piece of art and wow presentation.
Cute, cheeky gift tags instantly dress up gifts with a pop of color and girly phrases for days.
Every fab baby shower needs fab baby games. One of our favorites is making your own Baby Bingo cards. Design, print, or even hand draw with all the all the lil tiny baby things you've come to see at showers.
One last final detail, take home treats.
Treat bags look lovely placed by the door for all your guests to take home and enjoy as a shower keepsake.
Fill bags with pretty cookies and chocolate park - all with pink details of course.
Spring is the loveliest month for a baby shower...so treat your future mothers to a gorgeous, peony filled party.
