I just love baby showers and I was so excited to get to throw a little winter baby shower for Jen yesterday. She originally didn't want a shower or anything, but I talked her into doing something small and just celebrating with a few close friends.
I used pink, silver, burlap and lots of glittery things for the shower and it felt so girly and like a pretty winter wonderland.
I made a yarn wreath with her baby's initial on it and more glittery snowflakes. I'll share directions of how I made it on Wednesday!
For food we had traditional southern shower food. Croissants and chicken salad, cheese straws, fruit, vegetables and petit fours (also known as cake squares) from our favorite bakery.
Jen is the best friend I could ever ask for and I was so happy to get to help her celebrate the upcoming arrival of her baby girl!
She had friends from her neighborhood..
And also this group of girlfriends (but missing our sweet friend L)...
And even these sweet little girls were in attendance. We let the bigger girls stay for the shower because we knew they would enjoy it and they were a big help handing Jen gifts and played the perfect hostesses as guests were leaving. They made sure everyone got their favors and thanked them for coming.
Jen got some really cute things for her baby girl. Some adorable clothes, some baby essentials and diapers!
For favors I did my favorite thing for a girl's shower...nail polish! I picked out an assortment of colors that matched with shower and tied them up with ribbon and little "It's a Girl" charms I found at Michael's.
It was the perfect girly favor and hopefully all of her friends will have fun painting their nails and that it will serve as a reminder of Jen and her sweet baby.
