Real Party: Vintage Bird Inspired Baby Shower

Annie, Leah, and friends threw a super sweet, vintage inspired, peach and gray, bird baby shower with lots of personal touches and cute details… Perfect for the Pretty Parties Series.

There was even a photo booth with all kinds of props and chalkboard signs :)

The hostesses… in the photobooth… showing off some of the props!  (See here, here, here for free photo booth printables!)

It was a brunch…check out the cute tulle ball garland dangling on the front of the food table and yarn balls on top of the table :) Annie says Elmer’s glue works way better to make yarn balls than Stiffy’s fabric stifner!

The food card holders are corks wrapped in yarn with a small knife slit down the middle…
 I love mint chocolate anything…
 A new twist on an old favorite…mimosas! Melting popsicles and champagne (or sprite :) YUM!

Annie decided to do a similar version of Who’s Who. Instead of making it a game with prizes, she used it more as a conversation starter. She had everyone email her their baby pictures before the shower and printed them out. She also had a list of shower attendees pinned up so guests could match names with pictures. See the sparkly clothespins below :)

The clothes pins were cure and sparkly :) Thanks to Martha Stewart glitter!
They also printed a sweet 5×7 tree and had everyone “leaf” a thumbprint and sign their name. This little memento will be framed and used in the babies room :) (See 25 unique guest book ideas)
How cute is the purple yarn wrapped letter V for Vivian?
As for party favors…. everyone took home a strawberry short cake in a jar :) They even modge podged the lids of all the jars and added a copper heart.
And last, but not least…here were the invitations from Sassy Photo Creations
