This was my first experience throwing a baby-shower, and I enjoyed every moment of planning it. Once they found out she was having a little boy, I gathered up all the inspiration I could find for boy-themed showers. After thumbing through some good ideas on Pintrest, I settled on a mustache themed shower with grey-chevron (one of the colors/patterns in his nursery) and blue colors.
The shower was going to be a big event with 40+ people on the guest list, so I did as much work beforehand as possible. This included putting together a diaper cake, sewing some grey-chevron table runners together, making a sweet banner and getting all the supplies.
Crafts I did before the shower:
|This banner was the easiest to make, and was $10 worth of materials vs. $30-$50 for banners I saw on Etsy.|
|Hard to tell, but these were supposed to be bow-tie shaped|
|Mustache straws were a must!|
|Bought this off of Etsy - so cute!|
|Went with fresh flowers from the Farmer's market for table centerpieces|
|Vanilla and buttercream cupcakes|
|Glitter cake pops - not my best work, but pretty enough considering all the work to be done!|
|One of the only pictures of me for the day - had a chance to take a quick photo with my SIL's BFF|
|The best picture I got of the table put together. Those balloons did NOT want to stay upright!|
|Fun blue punch|
|One last shot of all the yummy desserts!|
