Tis the season of parties – birthdays, graduations, showers, and more – which is why I am so excited to share that my brother and sister-in-law are having a baby this summer! I am already an auntie to the two cutest nephews, and I absolutely cannot wait to meet my new niece!
As soon as we heard the exciting news, my mom and sisters and I immediately volunteered to throw the baby shower. Fast forward several months and we divided up the responsibilities and got to work! We made all of the food, desserts, favors, games/activities and hung all of the decorations ourselves. It was a lot of work, but so worth it to celebrate the beautiful mama-to-be!
I was in charge of invitations and decorations. Because Sam, the shower honoree, is a bit of a free spirit, we chose a bohemian beach baby theme for the shower. I created the invitations and then started thinking about decorations. To direct guests, I created signs matching the invite design. I also found a ton of hanging paper lanterns, made a small doily garland and set up a fun photo booth area! (Thank you, Pinterest, I have always wanted to make a photo booth!)
Why don’t you join us?? ;)
After all of the hard work that my mom, sisters and myself put in over the past couple weeks, I can honestly say that celebrating Sam made it all worth it. She had a great time, as did everyone else, and we couldn’t be happier to have her in our ever-expanding family! I would not trade anything in the world for my beautiful, crazy, wonderful family!!
Side note – I totally failed as a fashion blogger because I completely forgot to get a picture of my outfit for the shower! Whoops! Oh well, now that the party is over, I am so ready for vacation!! ;)
Are you celebrating anything special this summer?? What’s your favorite way to celebrate – a big party, a fancy event, or something more low key?
As always, thanks for reading!
