Oh dear Internet, things in this side of the coast have been chaotic to say the least. With my school, Joshua going to school (another post on its own…), relatives visiting, parties being planned and the whole mother/wife thing, it just seemed that 24 hours were not enough. But we are now slowly going back to our regular routine.
I was asked to plan a baby shower for a sweet mommy-to-be expecting her first baby – a baby girl. The grandma’s to be were the ones hosting the shower and they wanted the party to have a wintery feel to it.
A few months back I came accross a post from Hostess with the Mostess where Jennifer created this adorable Yarn Pom Snowpeople and I knew right away that I wanted to create that for this baby shower too. It was just too YARN cute!!
I went with an apple green and fuchsia color and the first thing I created was the invitation. From there I started to work on the SnowLadies ( so easy to make and came out so adorable!!) and the rest was history
I created a dessert table using a vintage iron Corsican crib. Once again may favorite cake stands came to play and oh did they play… I just love how versatile they are…a change of ribbon and voila…PERFECT!!
We had baby vanilla cupcakes, baby jars with coconut custard, pink and green M&Ms, Coconut bonbons and Hazelnut bonbons. Delicious!!!!
S’mores wrapped in cellophane and tied with ribbons were placed on each table set with a little poem chosen by the family.
I also did a diaper cake ( my second one, YAY) and I love how it came out!And I also made table runners for this party ( NO SEWING REQUIRED) using just fabric, ribbon and a hot glue gun
I had a so much fun creating the special things for this shower and I hope you enjoy how it turned out.

Couple of months ago I had the privilege of styling a Sock Monkey Inspired baby shower for my dear friend Juliana. You might remember her invitation from here.
I went with the same color I used for the invitation. I made a personalized wreath using fabric and the baby’s name Caleb (yep, Gigi did her thing).
We wanted to have a diaper cake ( my first one) instead of the cake – there were cupcakes instead made by Gabi Walker, and I just love how it all turned out.
I was so excited to show off my newest acquisition - a mirrored dresser that I found at Homegoods ( I just heart that store so much!!).
Instead of having the clothesline with the oneses I decided to use the vintage frame I got at Material for The Arts the last time I was there and display the oneses inside as if they were some Art. There were mason jars decorating the tables and my favorite party item: red stripped paper straw ( love the vintage look paper straws bring to any party)
We sent guests home with chocolate covered honey breads wrapped in ribbon.
There were also personalized thank you cards with M&Ms and handmade crochet monkeys by avapapernewyork
Pam Rodrigues was in Boston on that day photographing Bella Angel’s 1st Birthday so my dear friend Joyce Walker was the girl behind the lens this time.
Hope you like all the details.
I had so much fun styling Juliana’s party. Congrats amiga on the arrival of baby Caleb ( he is now almost a month old)
If you need paper straws or looooove the Monkey invitation please stop by my Etsy shop
Hope you have an amazing Friday!!!
