Basically every party I throw is exactly the same, but I don’t really get tired of it. Because I do love the rustic, don’t I? We hosted Melanie & Sky’s baby shower on Saturday in the backyard.
It was fun and festive and actually, now that I’m thinking about it, not very “baby” at all. But I think everyone had a good time and there were all sorts of kidlets running beneath the adults’ feet, which made it great fun for Dashiell, especially.
Also, I didn’t take many photos because I forgot to charge my battery pre-party. Of course.
I realized I didn’t manage to post their invites yet! They were pretty cute. Perhaps I will shoot some photos of the few I have left if you’d like to see. Also, do you love our new turquoise wall? I do. Twas inspired by Mel and Sky’s nursery.
The one actual shower-type activity at the party involved sporting your guess for the baby’s gender on your person. I made a tons of little pink and blue poofs and glue-gunned safety pins to the backs so people could wear them on their shirts.
It was a Mexican theme, mostly because I wanted an excuse to order papel picado banners from AyMujer! on etsy. I love them, especially in kraft tissue. And also Tamara’s makes amazing tamales, which meant I didn’t have to cook.
The parents of honor. You can see that their house is divided in terms of the guess for who will be joining the family.
More peonies. I am addicted, I think.
A few of our littlest guests. Parties with kids are so fun!
Melanie posted a bunch of photos on her blog too, if you’d like to see more. Celebrating babies is the best.
