One month ago I celebrated such a wonderful day with tons of my closest family and friends for my baby shower for Sofia Everly. I had been planning this event for around 3 months, and the fact that it was here and I only had 7 weeks until my daughter would arrive make it extremely excited and anxious.
We ended up having the event at the Houston Height’s Woman’s Club because it allowed us to have a gorgeous space that I could decorate any way I wanted. I had a complete theme in my head of how I wanted my daughter’s baby shower from before she was born, and this allowed me to do everything I had always dreamed off..Pinterest didn’t help that addiction. 🙂
My favorite colors are blush pink and ivory, so when thinking of my daughter’s baby shower I knew I wanted to incorporate those colors in some shape of form. I have always been drawn to the shabby chic style, and for this event there was no exception.
Since I am pretty picky when it comes to what I like and want, I did most of the planning and decorating on my own. For around a month prior I started purchasing items slowly, bringing my whole thought process to life and completely taking over the dining room kitchen. From chalk painting tons of mason jars, hot gluing paper flowers on tulle, to setting up sample tables and centerpieces, I was on a total roll.
Some of my favorite parts of the shower were the 3 stations that I had setup for my guests. My favorite was a headband making station for Sofia Everly. The guests could choose what month range they wanted and decorate a headband to their choosing; another Pinterest idea I was obsessed with. The other two were completely fun; one was where everyone had to a message on a diaper to get my husband and I through the long nights of diaper changes and the third was a cute sheet that they could write “advice for mom”.
I also loved some of the games we got play, like guessing how big my belly was, it’s so funny seeing how many people thought I was bigger than I actually was. 😉 Then who could draw the best baby on a plate on top of their heads. So much fun!!
Most importantly I want to say thank all my family and friends for coming out and sharing in this extremely special moment with my husband and I. We feel extremely blessed and know that Sofia Everly is loved more than she could ever imagine. <3
Thank you for following!!!
