Little Birdie Baby Shower

This week, I took a little break from my toy closet project to help some friends plan "all the little details" of a baby shower.   I LOVE party planning! Baby showers, Bridal showers, Birthday parties, Going away parties, any type of party! I just LOVE to plan & create for them.  

I can't share the details of that baby shower quite yet, {because it's this weekend} and I wouldn't want to ruin the surprise for the guest of honor {although, she probably doesn't read my blog.}  It is going to be super duper cute!! So come back next week to see it. {or follow my blog to stay updated on more creating, organizing & decorating inspiration}

BUT... I wanted to share a shower I had planned for a while back:
 
The details of a Little Birdie Baby Shower 
Actually we called it a "baby sprinkle" because a sprinkle is a smaller scale baby shower in which guests "sprinkle" the new mom with the little necessities she needs for a new baby. It's not actually a full shower, and is usually planned for any children after the first child.  This sprinkle was for my very good friend who was expecting her 6th BOY! I think she DESERVED to be sprinkled!
 I LOVED this little bird {it's a Cricut cutout} so decided this would be the theme of the sprinkle. 
The b.a.b.y letter blocks were also made with my cricut.
 Here are the Table Centerpieces
The "eggs" are rolled up socks & diapers
Nestling Necessities for sure! 
This is not a good photo, but this was the guest of honor's hair corsage.
The flower is from Walmart & I  hot-glued some pearls and some feathers {also from Walmart} onto it.
I passed out single feathers & a bobby pin, and all the ladies wore them in their hair.
It was so cute!
I made a diaper cake, as a gift & part of the decor
 The food was delicious!
 and so were the desserts!
{those 6 birds hanging from the OH BOY letters represented the guest of honors 6 BOYS!
I set up a little table with this poem, and all the ladies wrote their name suggestions
on the birds hanging from the tree
If you read my blog... I mean actually READ my blog, 
then you will know who I called to help me with this poem.
And then there were PARTY FAVORS...
But guess what, I have not ONE photo & I am still mad at myself for not taking a photo,
every party NEEDS favors & I made them for this one. They were sitting in this basket:
and I don't know why I didn't get one photo of the favor...

Anyways, it's not the favors or the decorations that  matter at a Baby Shower.
It's the People!!  I mean, think about it - what would a party be without anyone there?
B.O.R.I.N.G
Although, I think it's pretty fun to have a coordinating theme throughout any party.
and it is the little details that pull it all together, which, of course, I LOVE!

Check back next week to see the baby shower for this upcoming weekend.

  6. This is so cute! I love everything about boys! I have 6 boys of my own! Does Janelle have a blog of her own? It's nice to know other moms of only boys. It's like we know something others don't. ;) It's so much "FUN".
