Meet-The-Baby Shower

This baby shower by Loralee Lewis is so pretty with it’s soft colors and it’s vintage circus theme.  This was originally going to be a traditional baby shower for her friend, but sweet baby Beatrix decided to come 5 weeks early!  I think this “meet-the-baby shower” turned out just beautifully. 
Loralee created all the printable designs (which are available in her shop). She place small bags of popcorn at each place setting, for guests to nibble on while waiting for everyone else to arrive.  A light lunch of sandwiches, spinach salad, and chips was served, while mini cupcakes & decorated cookies were displayed for dessert.  Empty soda bottles were recycled and filled with a clear lime-flavored water.  Pretty little flags were attached to the stripe straws.
A couple of my favorite things from this party is the name card at each plate describing the origin of the baby’s name “Beatrix,” and the lovely cards available for motherly advice from the guests.  Finally each guest was given a clear pail filled with colorful gumballs, as a party favor. 
Thanks for the sweet inspiration, Loralee!

    It's so ironic to see this post today. I'm in the beginning stages of planning my daughters second birthday party and I added this exact set to my favorites on Etsy last night! Beautiful presentation!

    So charming baby shower!!! Well, do you know how the dynamic with the bottles work? I have tried to serve some bottles, but people do not keep their bottles, so we have to stop "partying" and wash them, and bring the washed ones back to be used. Any tips? Did I miss something? Please, help me!

    What a perfect party! Everything looks amazing!

    Kisa, you could tie on a name tag to each bottle if that helps. Just use a craft punch to have uniform shapes and tie on with bakers twine. Hope that helps : )

  8. Chris,

    Love,
