DIY Baby Shower

June 29, 2015

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!

DIY Baby Shower -- Boho beach baby theme invitations / handmade invites designed by Delightfully Kristi

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!!

The sisters!  :)

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!

Delightfully, Kristi (signature)
