Boho Baby Shower

Angie had the fabulous idea to throw a shower for our very loved babysitter, “Miss Alexa”. She has been such a blessing to both of our families and we all adore her! She’s having her first little baby in January and we wanted this to be a special time of celebration for her family and friends. I had a blast putting this together with Ang! She’s took on the menu and hosting while I got right on crafting the decor. 🙂 Here’s a look at our boho inspired brunch…

We partnered with PosterSimplicity (the cutest little Etsy shop) to design some sweet invites and “new mommy advice cards”. I love the way they both turned out. It’s been a while since I’ve done paper invites but for something as special as a first baby, I think it was perfect. All the family members loved getting something they could keep as a memory forever.img_7986

We used the advice cards as a filler after the present opening had wrapped up. It was touching to hear women of all different ages offering her support and encouraging her to be confident in her own “momming abilities”. I’m glad she has so many women cheering her on in this new journey!img_7916img_7917We also did “late night diaper messages” for the tired mama. This always seems to end up being the kids station for artwork.  Hopefully she’ll get a kick out of their pictures when it’s 2 am and she’s still awake. 🙂img_7919 img_7918 img_2469

I traded in my tissue paper for yarn this time. I had so much fun creating this backdrop. This kind of stuff is like hours of therapy for me. 🙂 Matt found me the perfect branch in the back yard. I bought about 8 spools of yarn in cream, wine, and orange and got busy. I love the way it turned out and plan on selling it so it can get way more use. I feel like it would make such a cool headboard, outdoor wedding backdrop, or even a huge statement wall hanging.img_7988img_7864

I made some yarn tassels for a mobile in Crosby’s room and loved the way they turned out so I decided to use this idea again somehow. I layered a few colors on a branch for a little extra “pop of boho”. Also selling this piece if anyone’s an interested buyer!? 🙂img_7912

Angie and Josh did amazing with the spread. Josh is a master chef and made three incredibly unique and delicious quiches. They were BOMB! They also made a zillion waffles and had all the fixings which we spread out and used butcher paper to label.img_7908 img_7906 img_7907

Angie put together the cutest gift basket of our favorite mom items for Miss Alexa: nose frida, bandana bibs, pampers diapers, gas drops, board books, Aiden and Anias swaddle blankets, Mother’s Love nipple cream, and Via instant coffee. img_7911We love celebrating babies and making mama’s feel loved! 🙂img_2530 img_7870img_7865img_7881  img_7885img_7863
