"Jana's DUE DATE Shower"

I had so much fun decorating for my dear friend Jana's baby shower. The theme I took from Hostess with the Mostess and decided on a Due Date Shower. I love how it turned out! Bright and colorful with orange and blue accents and the food was yummy too!
We had two round tables, clementine Izzy Sodas, cute pacifiers made from "winto green mints" and orange and blue jelly bellies.

I posted Jana's "Due Date" On white shelves and used them as the centerpieces.

I also bought the Martha Stewart tissue paper to make these fun looking tissue paper balls.

I filled baby bottles with coordinating candy these are light blue M and M's

I tied a pacifier on each table setting.

We served Grilled chicken, with fresh basil, mozzarella, Parmesan and tomato Panini Sandwiches, with fruit and fruit dip, and a fabulous pasta salad! For Dessert Orange Sorbet with a cookie, I didnt get a picture but the orange looked great with the table.

To thank the guests for coming, I made orange white chocolate covered cookies with orange sanding sugar, my friend Tina helped me make the custom stickers, I love how they turned out! I put them in small white Chinese looking boxes.

Here is the Invitation

Emily, sooo cute! I love the colors. Everything looked darling. I bet she was dying at how cute it was. She probably wasn't too surprised since you were the one doing the shower! You're awesome!

You are so talented. I am in awe of all the things you do and the detail work that you put into everything. You really are amazing. I think that I need you to come and host my next party. On an unrelated note, will you send me your phone number in an e-mail. I'd love to get together but I can't find your number.

Emily! I can't tell you enough how much I loved my shower! And everyone there keeps raving about what a talented person you are! Thank you a million times over for your hard work in putting the shower together! It was perfect!

Mary said...

Hi Emily, You are so creative. You can tell you spend a lot of time on those things and they turn out perfect! You should put on recipes for people like me who are stuck on basic, if not frozen/already-made food. And what wavy ribbon/material did you put on your towels? Cute stuff! You just need to always put a little side note at the bottom that has either the recipes or how to make the craft. :)
