Pink And Blue Baby Shower {Guest Feature}

I received this baby shower submission from Natasha of Fete Fanatic, and thought it had some fantastic and creative details. The theme was “Building our family one Block at a time” and incorporates baby blocks, teddy bears, and a FABULOUS Popcorn station – just look at the popcorn ball topiaries and popcorn garland!

Check out all the lovely styling and read what Natasha says about the shower {BTW, it was a shower for her but as we party stylists tend to do, she also had a hand in the decor}.

Popcorn Table Notes:

  • DIY popcorn ball topiaries
  • DIY popcorn garland
  • Mini popcorn ball “pops”
  • Popcorn toppings served in baby bottles {genius}
  • Various flavors of popcorn including: Asiago & Cracked Pepper, Caramel & Chocolate, White Cheddar, Peanut Butter, Chipotle & Lime, and plain.

From Natasha: “Traditionally a family member or girlfriend plans a baby shower to honor the mother to be. My shower was planned by family and friends, but I just had to have a hand in the styling aspect for my very first child! The theme was “Building our family one Block at a time.” I found unpainted building blocks at a craft store, and customized them with paint in the color scheme of pink & aqua (I love shades of aqua!). Expecting a baby girl doubled the fun when styling the shower. I absolutely love feminine touches, and knew that I had to incorporate girly elements. Along with building blocks and teddy bears, ruffles and rosettes were my style trend of choice.

  • Decor started at my front door with over sized building blocks which flanked the entrance of the porch, and a handcrafted ruffled wreath on the front door.
  • Guests were welcomed with a pink grapefruit or berry lemonade spritzer with tiny pacifiers adorning the drinking straws.
  • Tables were dressed in fitted white ruffled table toppers which I designed to accentuated the aqua linens.
  • The centerpieces were hand painted building blocks with teddy bears dressed up in little pink skirts, a rosette bow, and a signature logo tee which matched our stationery.
  • Ruffles and rosettes were incorporated into the cake, signage, table linens, guest of honors chair sashes, custom pillow (for my back)…Everywhere I could put them!!
  • Signage included handmade “baby girl” banner created with ribbon, painted wooden letters, and fleece fabric rosettes.
  • Prizes for the shower games were wrapped in the colors of the shower and doubled as decor on the fireplace mantle.
  • Guests went home with personalized teddy bear favors and lots of popcorn!”
