Butterfly Baby Shower

I am so excited to share this lovely butterfly themed baby shower with you today.  My client was hosting a shower for her sister and they decided that the color scheme be pink and brown to coordinate with the baby’s room.  So, when I found this adorable Pink Boutique clip art I knew I was going to be able to create some really fantastic party elements.

My client found an invitation online that she liked but wanted something with a bit more pizzazz.  So, using the original invite for inspiration, I designed a custom invitation with a spray of butterflies against a chocolate brown background with all the details for the party.

Next I needed to come up with some really great party décor ideas.  My client kept repeating over and over that she wanted her niece and sister to be celebrated with a bang and that she wanted a real wow factor.  I knew the perfect way to do that would be to create a fabulous dessert table for the party and to also create small focal points throughout her home.

As guests entered the home, they were greeted with a welcome sign.  I always like to feature a welcome sign of some sort for all my events. I was able to use the papers and some images from my Cricut to make this sign.  The guest of honor is a sassy and hip lady.  I really wanted to convey that image in this sign by using this modern silhouette image of an expectant mother!

Mimosa cocktails were passed out as guests made their way into the main area of the party.  Another little detail I like to add to my parties is some form of charm or decor to my drinking glasses.  Dressing up a cocktail drink is as easy as adding a small embellishment to a basic cocktail stirrer. I attached little butterfly cut outs onto bamboo sticks to add the right amount of flair to these champagne flutes.IMG 0625 e1338397686443 336x450 Butterfly Baby Shower

While guests were busy mingling, we prepped the food buffet with delicious Chinese cuisine!  Since the food was catered, I designed food cards similar in look to the invitation.  The cards were used to easily identify what each dish was.  Food cards or markers are essential when throwing a large event where guests serve themselves.

After the meal guests were kept busy with fun games.  I personalized a variety of game cards that were selected by my client.  One of the favorite games played was a customized version of baby bingo , or in this case ZOEJR which is the baby’s name and her middle & last name initials.  The Bingo squares were selected by the hostess using an online Bingo generator.  You can find a similar tool here.   Once you’ve chosen your boards, you can easlily import the cards into Microsoft Word and add your own text and images to them!

As the party came to a close, we opened up the dining area to reveal a beautiful sweets table.  This is where I really had a chance to utilize a lot of the clip art and paper.  I wrapped water bottles with paper and attached scalloped party dots to accent them.

The original bottles looked like this!

You can also apply the same technique with other water bottles, just cut your paper to a size that accommodates the bottle you want to embellish, add a decorative accent and voila!

Another personalized item I created were these chocolate bar wrappers.  I just adore them!  I stacked them on a framed mirror which added a nice reflective light to the table.

It’s always fun to add a bit of whimsy to your sweets table.  I created these custom baby block boxes as accent pieces!

I designed a table sign for the sweets table directing guests to grab a bag, which was embellished with a simple party dot, and to enjoy the buffet of sweets available to them.

Along with party bags filled with sweets, guests left with a dainty cherry blossom candle – which I did not embellish – but fit with the theme, none-the-less.

  20. A few patients have a hernia condition that can induce the
    symptoms of acid reflux Gerd. One of the best things
    about using an acid reflux herbal treatment in comparison to other medications
    prescribed by your doctor or which you can purchase over the counter of
    your local drug store is they do not cause unwanted side
    effects. Or you turn over to hug your loved one and forget you’re on the reflux pillow and slip off.
