Several weeks ago, I threw a baby shower for my sister Kelley. She is due any day now (eek!) and we are super excited to welcome Mr. Levi Justice into this big crazy family of girls!! Guests were welcomed by a bunch of balloons tied onto our pram, as well as the jute-wrapped wreath. The letters spelling Levi's name are from my vintage-dictionary!
I know I shared these before, but I can't help but share them again. I LOVE them. Here are the shower invitations I made again.
Kelley is a cultured momma-to-be (as you can tell by the cake-pop moustache), so I did my best to keep it clean and chic, with a vintage woodsy twist.
The shower was full of handmade treasures, which brought warmth and a fun atmosphere to our little celebration! The color palette was neutral creams, whites, with pops of green from the succulent and wheat-grass centerpieces. There was enough color influence from my house without adding in a competing shower color. Also, with a neutral palette, I can re-use some of the decorations in the future.
The succulent centerpieces were made with a hollowed out log, I 'stole' from a friend. My dashing husband Daniel cut them into slices, and I hot-glued a cork bottom onto each section. Then I filled each section with potting soil and planted my succulents. These also doubled as great thank-you gifts for shower hostesses!
Other handmade touches included the vintage paper streamers, the burlap table runner, and the muslin table ruffle. I also showcased a jut-wrapped letter 'L' (for Levi) in an Ikea frame backed with vintage dictionary pages.
And there it is! A sweet woodsy baby shower. I hope you enjoyed this little peek into our afternoon :)
Now for a run-down of my sources:
Birch utensils- These are from a company called Birchware. They are adorable, completely compostable, and are without any harmful dyes, or plastics. This is the link on Amazon.
Wheatgrass seeds- I purchased mine from Ebay for super cheap! However, I've also heard you can buy the already-grown grass from Jamba Juice for a little bit more.
Moustache mold for cake-pops- This was a lollipop mold, but I used it for my cake-pops! Ordered via Amazon.
Grapevine wreath and jute -Jo-Anns Fabric
Succulents- Ebay. I've found these are the cheapest, best quality succulents. I bought the lot of 36, and it was enough for centerpieces and 20 favors.
Favor tray- Klack serving tray from Ikea, later painted with chalkboard paint
Teeny succulent cups- Blanda finger-bowls from Ikea
Picture frame- The infamous Ung Drill frame from Ikea
Vintage Dictionary- I got mine from a local antique dive, but I have seen some great deal for some on Ebay too!
Lots of love,
