Bow Tie Baby Shower

10 July 2012

Last weekend we had a shower for my sister in law Megan.  If you’re a regular around here you’ll know that Reece made his arrival early.  I told Meg that we should stuff a pillow under her dress for the shower.  {For those of you who have asked, he is now 3 weeks & he is doing GREAT!  All of his tubes are gone, he’s eating well.  We’re keeping fingers crossed that he gets to come home this week.}

Her sister in law Heather and I co-hosted the shower.  Heather was so much fun to work with, we were totally on the same wavelength, great food, no games, relaxed atmosphere.  The melon baby + cute diaper cake below was all her and her husband Andy is a chef, so he took care of the menu.

  • Invitations were designed by Lisa at Ellieoh.  She was fast, attentive, and so patient with changes that I wanted to make.  I found her while perusing Etsy and I’m so glad I did.  I would highly recommend her.  Bright green envelopes from Hobby Lobby.
  • Awesome {free!} Paper Bow Tutorial + Pattern from Ellinee.  {I used the pattern for this and my own paper choices.}  We used black pillow boxes from Michaels, filled with a sea salt chocolate covered oreo and topped with the paper bow for favors.
  • Idea for the melon baby carriage came from Pinterest.  If anyone has the original source of this I will be happy to link, I’ve spent close to an hour and I’m still not sure where it came from.
  • Lime green plates + turquoise napkins, Reece banner, and “new mom” sash from Party City.

Holy cow, Michelle. You girls did a great job! What an adorable shower - that melon baby made me laugh so hard. I had no idea melon could look so much like a baby.
I'm glad to hear that Reece is well. Here's to him - what a champ!

Um, I think the original source for the baby carriage was your aunt moe, we were just laughing about that when she was here last month.

The baby in the fruit creeped me out. I felt like I was taking its blanket of fruit so I scooped from the Noel next to it. NO MORE parties at your mom's house for a month
