Whatever you say,

does it really matter?

Baby Shower


My sister Sabrina is having twins.  We are throwing her a baby shower in Temecula (where she lives) in October.  Let me tell you something. I am up to my eyeballs in her baby shower to-do list.  I have re-written it several times.  I even put little boxes next to each item so I can check it off was completed. This is not the first time I have thrown a baby shower. It’s the FOURTH FIFTH! So you would think I would have it down by now. But every person and every shower has been different.  Because with each party, it becomes a little more special and little more detailed.   I don’t like to throw the same old baby shower you’ve been to a million times. I want to make it special and unique for my sister.  So here is my inspiration:

I bought the frame, wiring, baby clothes pins and the tags all from Michaels. I purchased a large clothes pin online from this craft store. They have a lot of great arts and crafts for sale at reasonable prices. From this online store, I also purchased mini chalkboards to place in front of each food item to let people know what they are eating.

Side note: there are too many cooks in the kitchen and we cannot decide on a menu. URGH!

My Pinterest

And this is my inspiration for decorating! Isn’t it beautiful?  She is having a boy and a girl so I thought the kiwi color was perfect and neutral.  I purchased lanterns online at Just Artifacts. They have a large assortment of lanterns for a very low price compared to local party stores. I bought glass vases at the Dollar Store, table runners here and table cloths here.  No need for place settings as this is not a formal sit down shower.

Other little touches: A customized Banner to hang in front of the house and cookie favors with personalized stickers. What can I say? Only the best for my sister!

I am going for simple yet elegant. What do you think? Any suggestions or recommendations?

Pictures to follow (after the baby shower of course).

  1. You’re planning my next party!

  2. Love your ideas! Etsy is a wonderful resource. I use a particular vendor who does a wonderful job on personalized stickers. They have everything!

  3. I’ve used these 2 vendors & was really happy with their work! Also, if you need more chalkboards, there is chalkboard spraypaint that you can spray on anything. Instantly turns them into a chalkboard! Genius! Happy planning!

  4. good luck with everything! i threw a baby shower for my older sister like 6 years ago, but she did most of the work haha 🙂
