Shake, Rattle, & Roll Baby Shower {Guest Feature}

shake, rattle, and roll baby shower

You’re going to love our guest feature today. This Shake, Rattle, & Roll” baby shower was styled and sent to us from Jenny of Bloom Designs Online. Created for her sister who’s pregnant with her first child, Jenny put so many adorable touches into the design that it was tough to narrow down all the photos to a manageable post!

There are food and drink stations, and several auxiliary tables with activities and favors – each one displayed beautifully. Check out the details and read Jenny’s description below…

“I was so excited and honored to plan and host a baby shower for my sister, Nicole, who is having her first baby. Nicole came up with the theme of the party, Shake, Rattle and Roll and I created the images to fit each of the words in the theme- a bottle, rattle and carriage. I tried to use the shake, rattle and roll idea in all parts of the party. We settled on an icy blue, silver and white color scheme. Since Nicole is the writer of a fashion blog, I wanted the shower to be feminine, sophisticated and modern just like her fashion tastes.

DECORATIONS – Lots of 36 inch white balloons tied with silver and blue tassels, which I made out of ribbons and a metallic fringe door curtain found at Party City, framed the yard. Under the welcome sign was a bench with shake, rattle and roll pillows made by our mom. This is where the guest posed for pictures with the Nicole. The shower was set to be outside but real showers made lots of last minute adjustments necessary.

DRINKS – We used Nicole’s changing table to create the “Bottles” station where guests could pick from a variety of drinks like sparkling waters, Ready to Pop Soda, champagne and lemonade. Wine glasses had mini charms tied on with bakers twine. Rock candy sticks with mini pacifiers that had been spray-painted silver complimented the champagne glasses and all water bottles and soda bottle were personalized. A Bottle Bucket was also filled with additional drinks.

LUNCH – The “cravings” table was filled with all of Nicole’s favorite things. Guest dined on baby sandwiches, Brussels sprout, roasted beet, couscous and dried berries or cornucopia salads, fresh fruit and a veggie frittata.

SWEET TREATS – For the dessert table, I enlarged the images from the invitation and mounted them in silver frames. The centerpiece was a banana cake, the mom-to-be’s favorite, decorated in a chevron pattern to match the printables. Of course, we had milk “shakes”, cake pop “rattles,” and cupcake “rolls” (which were gluten free for some guests). For the shake bottles, I used my Cameo Silhouette machine to cut vinyl decals. Other sweet treats included shake, rattle and roll sugar cookies custom made by Lizy B. Bakes, white chocolate mousse in mini baby food jars and boy oh boy chocolate bars.”

“We also had a candy station with blue and white gumballs layered in a chevron pattern (inspired by Paiges of Style), sixlets, taffy, yogurt pretzels, blue and white star marshmallows, and sour patch kids (the mom to be’s favorite) in mini bitty bags sealed with mini clothespins. Guests were given “midnight feeding” boxes to fill with treats.

ACTIVITIES – As the guests arrived, they were asked to sign a baby book for the baby. They also added a baby name suggestion and attached it to the ‘name wreath’. Each place setting had a card asking the guest to “rattle off some advice for the mommy and baby to be.”

FAVORS – Friends took home boxes of mini chocolate kisses {“hugs & kisses”} with shake, rattle and roll stickers on the bottom and tags thanking them for rolling by.”

 

Wow, I’m exhausted just reading about it!  You can tell a lot of love went into creating the perfect shower for her sister, and so much inspiration for us!

Have a great day!
