Something that occurred to me as I just sat down to write this post is that I actually haven’t been to many baby showers for mothers of little girls. Aside from my own before T was born, I had only been to one for my sister and one for my sister-in-law. Yet, looking at how many baby shower photos are out there, you’d think that baby girls outnumber baby boys 2-to-1.
When I was pregnant with T, my sister hosted a gorgeous baby shower with flower pot and whirlypop centerpieces, and an ice cream bar that was brought in at the end of the luncheon. It felt like it was straight out of a fairy tale. When my SIL was pregnant, her friend hosted a book-themed couples baby shower that was cute in a totally different way. The entire event surrounded a giant dessert bar that used vintage baby books as risers, and lots of tasty treats! (why, oh why, didn’t I take more pictures back then?!)
There’s such a wide variety of creativity out there, I wasn’t able to just focus on one color scheme or theme for this post, so just bear with all the cuteness that’s about to follow!
For the super girly-girl, this Baby Wears Prada shower from Dooby Design Group (as featured on HWTM), is the ultimate. Little did I know three years ago that a theme like this would have been perfect for T, as she is all about the girly things in life (the husband even had her checking out bags in Coach the other day!).
You’ve seriously got to check out the other details of this adorable butterfly shower over at Annie’s Eats. I love these parchment cones full of caramel corn…but the butterfly mobiles and cupcake toppers are also gorgeous!
