Born to Shop Baby Shower

| All Parties, Nancy's Parties

 
No truthful Thursday this week, but I guess I do share a little truth about my first pregnancy on this post….read it to find out :):)

I am excited to share these baby shower ideas featured in the  Bird’s Party magazine! I try to do things with a small budget, but still get a “wow” look.
About the theme
My first pregnancy was a dream come true after struggling with infertility for almost 5 years.  I was ecstatic when we found out we were having a girl! 


My friends planned a beautiful baby shower for me, but my baby girl decided to come into the world at 32 weeks!  She spent 2 weeks in the NICU. It was another dream come true bringing her home!  The baby shower happened after my girl was born!  
“Born to shop” baby shower idea sparked in my head with lots of bling bling, glitter and girly things!  This wasn’t the theme my friends planned for me, but I have been wanting to bring my inspiration and ideas to life!  I hope you love it!
Posh Pixels Design Studio created the perfect designs for this event.  



Desserts
I am a big fan of sweets! However, I didn’t want to display the same traditional cupcakes, cakes, cake pops, cookies, etc.  I also don’t have the money to buy professional desserts.  I suggest to pick sweets that match your color scheme.  I chose strawberry yogurt, pink sixlets in a jar, and a yummy bundt cake from the grocery store!  I added the pink frosting, flowers in the middle and some sparkles. 


I made a simple baby carriage garland that hung above desserts table with gorgeous flowers from Postscripts etsy shop!

“Let’s go shopping Boutique!” station:
I set up a table with lots of baby clothes, shoes, jewelry, tutus, onesies, etc…  I wanted to pretend the mommies coming to the baby shower were going to be shopping to welcome baby girl!  She made her appearance early, but she is ready to shop! :)


I added pink nail polish inside some cute paper purses from PaperCandee Shoppe to give as thank you favors to everyone who attended.


“Amore de Bebe” Gifts Armoire
I used a black armoire in the nursery to display all the gifts brought for the baby. 


This pretty banner from Icing Designs hang beautifully.  The moms came in to check out the nursery and left the gift on her armoire.  There were so many fun things like the decorative boxes, “Blingalicious”, onesies, tutus, bows, etc…. This baby girls was set!
I included some pretty paper chandeliers hanging off the armoire.  These are adorable and you can find them from Cottage Bliss etsy shop.


A big THANK YOU to Ivanhoe Couture who owns a cute boutique and was a wonderful contributor for this event!


Some additional pictures from different angles.  You can find the table runner, garlands/banners in my shop HERE.

 Thank you Bird’s Party for the opportunity to share my ideas!  Be sure to check out the amazing magazine with tons of parties from fantastic talented designers!

A special thank you to all the fabulous vendors who created pretty things for this baby shower!

    So glad to hear that Mama and Baby are doing well. Congratulations! I think you did a great job balancing wow with $$. And we all know how hard that is. I especially like the "pearls from paris"! If you have the time, I'd love for you to share on Sweet Sharing Monday! http://saynotsweetanne.com/2012/sweet-sharing-monday-3/
