Jenn's Preppy Baby Boy Shower


In August I hosted a Preppy Baby Boy Shower for my sister, Jenn. BTW... Jenn is due any day now. I. CAN. HARDLY. WAIT. The color scheme of the shower was Navy Blue and Lime Green with hints of Orange. I made the pinwheels from scrapbook paper, directions here.


Jenn looking fabulous!


The Hostesses
My outfit matched the shower color scheme,
Navy Dress with Lime Green Flower Pin :)


The Food Table
Ooey Gooey Ham & Cheese Sandwiches & Turkey & Cheese Sandwiches,


The Beverages
Izze Soda~ Lime and Orange
We also served wine and punch





Cupcakes for Dessert
My mom and I made the cupcake tower.
It's so easy and economical!
We got this fantastic idea and directions here.
For the bottom of our cupcake tower, we used a cake stand.



One of my favorite features of the Baby Shower was the Blessing Tree.
The white vase was my Grandma's and the white "button" on the ribbon is one of my Grandma's clip earrings. Even though she couldn't be at the shower (in a dementia care facility), a part of my Grandma was there.





The Gifts






Friends




A great party isn't complete without fabulous and tasty Party Favors!
I ordered these CUTE and delicious cookies from See Jane Living on Etsy.
As I was looking for cute and reasonably priced cutout cookies, See Jane Living had the best prices! I wondered if the cookies would be tasty. Sometimes decorated cutout cookies are prettier than they are tasty. We were not disappointed... these cookies were just as yummy as they were cute! They came individually wrapped in clear bags. I added the sticker, "For this child, I prayed. 1 Samuel 1:27."

You throw the best showers! Everything looks amazing.

After I read this post, I was asking myself why I didn't think of that color combo last year for my baby...such great colors!

I am so thrilled for your family. That will be one adored little boy.

I think you could start a side business as a successful party planner. You seriously did an amazing job on your sister’s shower. From the colors to the details, everything looks fabulous.

Your sister looked great and so did you. I love how you matched the colors of your outfit to the color scheme of the shower! The spread of food looks delicious and it’s set-up so cute. I love how you even wrapped the water bottles. The cupcake tower looks really great and I bet they tasted delish.

I think it’s really special how you included your Grandma even though she could not be there physically.

The cookies are adorable…gotta love Etsy!
