Amanda's Baby Shower

One of my very favorite things to do is throw a shower ... Whether it be a baby or bridal shower they are always so much fun and the best places to do cute little decorations.  I had the honor of being involved in my Cousin Amanda's baby shower {which is why I went to Buffalo a few weekends ago} and got to do so many cute little decorations for her.

How cute does she look??

Her theme was Chevron with Navy Blue and Grey

Boy oh Boy Baby Shower Invite

This was her invitation I made .. and can be found HERE on my Etsy Shop.

The center pieces were white and blue balloons anchored down by these cute vases.  I also made each table a grey chevron table runner to match the theme.

This is all could see of Amanda when we picked up the balloons

and this is all she could see of me!

Each setting got a little diaper packet that included ... Pretzel Favors, Wishes for Baby, An Envelope {to address for Thank You cards}, a little blue or grey circle, a pen, spoons {for the baby food tasting game} and instructions for everything in the diaper! You can find out how to make these cute diapers with a template from Martha Stewart {Here}

And all those little circles everyone had to write their name on ended up being this:

Each diaper also had a favor of four hand dipped chocolate covered pretzels

Chocolate Covered Pretzels
We did 280 of them!!

I dipped in chocolate and Amanda covered with sprinkles 

Gram and Aunt Amy came by to help with all the prep too! 

 Here are a few more pictures of things from the shower ... it really was a great time!

I also made her a gift, something I started when Brandy had her first child and carried on with Marie's first child and now Amanda's.  I like to tailor the alphabet for the baby's room and what they will most likely like {take a close look at Letter B}

  1. Fabulous arrangement! We did the same kind of blue and white arrangement on our 10th wedding anniversary last week in one of the prettiest New York wedding venues. The invite looks so catchy, it reflects how the party would be like i.e. fantastic!
