When I was pregnant with my second baby, my mom wanted to throw me a baby shower. I was a little uncomfortable with it... second baby, also a boy. I didn't want friends and family to think I was just asking for more stuff. My mom argued that my boys would be born in completely opposite seasons and were going to be over four years apart, so we likely needed some new clothes and new gear. Plus, my mom loves any excuse to have a party, so who was I to argue?
Being the designer I am, I volun-told my mom that I would come up with the invitations and any other printed items for what we were calling a "sprinkle." Since it was held in February, the odds were good it could rain, so I went with a fun rainy theme. Of course, it was gorgeous that day and in the 70s!
I had a lot of fun with the wording!
For party favors, my mom made a big batch of lemon sugar scrub and put them in half-pint-sized mason jars. I added a circle label to the top.
This is one of my favorite printed items for baby showers these days, a card where guests write down their wishes for the new baby. I have even done one of these for a child's first birthday too!
A few of these little umbrellas decorated the food table.
I printed out a bunch of cards like this so we could play some baby-themed Pictonary. It was hilarious how difficult it was to draw some of these!
I cut out this sign in a cloud shape for the front door.
Lastly, I created some simple thank you cards to send to everyone who came, whether they gave a gift or not.
I felt so blessed to share such a wonderful day with my close friends and family. If you'd like to read more details about the party itself, check out this blog post on Mama Say What?!
