|Purchased from the Paperclutch Shop|
Since peach paper products were difficult to get my hand on, we had to have some accent colors. Chocolate brown and ivory. And then I got creative (with the help of Pinterest) with making some decor myself. The goal was to have some decorations that could be re-used in the nursery, which was already painted 2 shades of peach.
|I made the tissue pom poms using this tutorial and the lanterns came from here.|
|Peach balloons came from a party supplier on ebay.|
|And you may remember the bunting from my tutorial that can be found here.|
|Flowers from Aldi on each table.|
The shower was in the afternoon so it wasn't really necessary to serve a full meal, the goal was to keep it simple and budget friendly, so here is what I came up with.
|Bottled water, sweet tea and peach punch.|
Mix together 64 oz white cranberry peach juice, 8 oz Sprite, 4 oz Orange Juice and then float a pint of softened orange sherbet on top.
1) Guess how big the Mom-To-Be's belly is. I simply put out a ball of pink yarn and masking tape, the guests would cut off the length of yarn that they thought measured around her belly, wrote their name on a piece of masking tape and taped it to the wall. At the end of the shower, we announced who was closest.
2) The Baby "Poo" guessing game. (Requested by the Mom-To-Be.) Melted various candy bars into diapers which were passed around for the guest to guess which candy bar was in the diaper.
3) Notes to the baby-- inspired from Pinterest, the guests filled out these cards...
It's safe to say that little Kaylee will be one spoiled little girl! :)
All that is left is to anxiously await the arrival of the precious little girl!
