Sweet Beginnings Baby Shower

Summer before last I planned my very first “real” shower. I had co-hosted a few bridal showers in the past but was still in college and didn’t have a lot of time or money to invest into it. After my best friend Jessica told me she was expecting a baby girl, I knew I wanted to throw her the girliest, prettiest shower I could come up with.

I know, I know. This is a baby shower for Kaylen and I posted about her 1st birthday here. I’m totally posting in the wrong order but I didn’t have my blog then so I get to share it now!

So my love for party planning was born with the Sweet Beginnings Baby Shower.

Jessica is a very special friend sister and it was really important to me that I got everything just right. I wanted her to know how happy and excited I was for her and to feel extra special celebrating the arrival of her baby girl.

In order to get everything perfect, I spent so much time on Pinterest. It got a little scary.

Fun little fact…planning this shower helped me discover blogging and led me to some of my favorite blogs.

Can we be adults a little immature for just a second about this cake? I had touches of paisley throughout my decorations (the invitations, the wreath) and asked the bakery if they could do a paisley design. The baker assured me he could and this is what I got. Maybe it’s just me but I think it looks more like certain male body part rather than paisley.

A sweet beginnings baby shower is not complete without a sweets table.

I absolutely loved the way the centerpiece’s turned out. Plus, all the dresses were Jessica’s to keep.
