I recently had the privilige of giving a baby shower for one of my dearest friends, Talitha, who is expecting her first baby at the end of October. It was a simple shower, but I still wanted it to be festive and meaningful.
She's having a baby boy, but I didn't want the party to be too traditional. I was inspired by the colors in maps as the theme for the shower. I used soft lime, aqua and baby blue, with just a touch of navy.
For a focal point, I hung paper poms from the chandelier with lime letters and paper stars (ps- this is my parent's house...I couldn't fit more than four people in our little apartment : ). My friend Karis made the delicious and cute cupcakes, which were the perfect centerpiece. She makes amazing baked goods through her bakery, Genschies.
I made the little paper flags for the cupcakes and fruit, along with the paper bunting.
I'm in love with this striped grosgrain ribbon. I plan to use the black version in a lot of my Christmas decor, but the navy and white stripes were perfect on mason jars holding candles for the shower.
The shower turned out great, and I think Talitha got lots of wonderful gifts for their first little bundle. I can't wait to meet him in a few short weeks!
Congratulations, Tom and Talitha!
