I worked with a lovely group of girls to host a baby shower for my sister-n-law. The event was not only beautiful but so much fun! The theme was Welcome to the World and the colors were earth green and blue with pops of orange (my sister-n-laws favorite color).
The invitation design might give you an even better feel for the event.
A close friend of mine has a collection of globes, which were perfect for depicting the theme.
We had globe cake pops made at a bakery in Houston. Guests took them home as party favors. The orange chevron paper straws were from Hobby Lobby. We added little tags to each one. The flags said "Welcome to the World and had the GPS coordinate for the baby's home.free globe graphic from The Graphic Fairy and we stuck them to clear plastic cups. The napkins are George Stanley cocktail napkins.
I'm in love with the true round 3 foot balloons. Seems I can't host a party without them.
I designed thank you post cards that matched the invitations and guests wrote their mailing address on one as they arrived. This was to save the mommy to be time when sending her thank you postcards.
And, no party post is complete without my sketches.
My brother and his wife are expecting their first baby and I was thrilled to help a wonderful group of girls host a baby shower in their honor. Because Joshua and Sarah love to travel, we thought a welcome to the world theme was appropriate for their baby. Sarah's favorite color is orange so that was a nice neutral color since the gender of the baby is unknown. These invitations were mailed in orange envelopes with these free vintage parcel post labels from World Label in blue. The map inside the heart was also a free download from The Graphics Fairy. She had so many beautiful maps to choose from!
