Recently ( last week) I hosted a baby shower in our home for a neighbor ( and friend). It was such fun to get all the details together and the evening was a delight. I have had questions on Instagram and snapchat to see more and some of the details on where things came from or what was served and such, so here ya go. Enjoy!
The mommy to be works so I hosted the shower one evening and decided why not make it a dinner party, so that is what I did! To start I had a table cloth made in all white, with a single ruffle to the floor. I found two different fabrics in pink (one in a pink gingham and the other a pink toile both from Hobby Lobby) and had four runners made in each fabric and placed those across the table, alternating each print.
The invitations were from Katie & Co notice the bib, she added the baby's initials (how cute is that).
I'm sure you've realized by now there is a P on the salad plate, and my last name starts with a C, but Baby's last name starts with a P!!!!!
The china I used was Lenox Federal Platinum, in addition to the traditional five piece set of Federal Platinum I added the salad plate ( also by Lenox) in Federal Platinum Monogram Script ( also available in gold and block lettering) you can find them HERE
The details on the china can all be found on the links below

ALL OF THE FLOWERS were done by a local florist who does BEAUTIFUL work and was more than happy to work with the containers I had on hand ( Revere Bowls).
Its a week after the shower and I still have flowers in our home.

You will not be disappointed in her work.
Another couple touches I did to help add in the fun and make things extra special were the monogrammed napkins (from Sequins and Lipstick on etsy)which you can find HERE and after the party I gave all the extras to the mommy to be.
The party guest each left with a plush hot pink velvet heart from Plush Pumpkin HERE and if you've never seen her products you'll want to hop over there and look, she has more than hearts ( she started out making plush velvet pumpkins and all I can say is WOW).
Take a close look on the table and all the Ruffled Flowers are also from Plush Pumpkins.
The clear boxes were full of pink and silver Hershey kisses. I found the boxes on Amazon, don't make the mistake I did and think that a three inch box would be small. IT WASN'T and took five party size bags of Hershey kisses to fill twelve boxes. I tied each box with pink gingham ribbon I bought at Craft Tex HERE and glued a little pink safety pink ( found at Hobby Lobby) to the center of the bow. In the future I will use a two inch size box. I placed a box at each place setting but we all agreed that giving them to the mommy to be to hand out at the hospital to visitors would be a sweet gesture. Plus remember, each guest left with a plush hot pink velvet heart from Plush Pumpkin HERE

The night was lovely, the mommy to be is such a doll and in a matter of seven days should be holding her baby girl.
