It's a Girl Baby Shower!! Pink and Green Theme

Posted Wednesday, September 11, 2013

Its time for a Baby Shower and even though summer is almost gone it doesn't mean we have to shy away from beautiful spring and bright colors as Pinks and Greens. I love making items with colors as a theme as much as an Item or character because It gives you tons of options to work with .You can pick one pattern and go with it or mix and match ! Chevrons are great as well as Paisleys here are some amazing Items I found to help you with your Girly Pink and Green Baby shower .

Invitations are always the first sneak peak to your party so show them what the theme is with one color or all of them . Have the fonts changed in the color scheme or just add one accent in the main color you are choosing ! Here we have the Baby Bump Silhouette in a beautiful invite from Lilybeedesigns that is super cute and is a DIY printable or for a little extra they will print for you . This little Elephant Invite and Thank you Cards from UrbanTickle are also a DIY printable that is an adorable green and pink mix as well as a great work on patterns. Both are stunning and I am sure are willing to help you customize as well .

Decoration and Location are very important .Most showers take place at home or in a restaurant/catering hall .Both are great options but of course at home you have more to work with because you make the rules ! Most places allow you to decorate as you wish as long as you do not ruin there in house set up. I always Like Flowers over balloons for a baby shower sometime balloons can look cheesy but that's just me! Diaper cakes are another great centerpiece option as well as strollers and rocking chairs you can rent. Table linen for this theme I would choose a white or a very light pink then let it pop with a lime green napkin ! I Love banners and for Baby showers you don't have to be limited to just one but you can have them in different sections of the party and use different ones as well . Here we have one from DesignGirl16 with great circle shapes and hot pink, pink and green patterned papers all tied in with matching ribbon. The second is a Gorgeous felt heart garland from Lullabymobiles  that would be great on a wall or I would drape it over the mom to be chair or gift area ! The Fringe Backdrop from Bellaandteoboutique that is Amazing for a candy table backing a dais backing or anywhere that you want to make a focal point it is stunning. They all make great d├ęcor and all work well together .

Now you have to keep these guests busy because lets face it these parties can be a little boring for the not mommy yet friends in the group ! So games are a must . Have a guess how many pacifiers in a vase game where the closest guess wins. Another great thing to do is have a Chinese auction at the shower with little basket gifts and raffle tickets they get at the door or leave them in the napkin for them to use to pick the prizes they want then have the raffle called out during dinner to keep the ladies entertained. Another great game is Baby Shower Bingo from TooCuteInvites shown below. Guests write in the baby gift item they think will be shown and have them cross them out as you open your gifts. Once they have a line then Bingo they win the prize. Also I have a demo of how to make these adorable Diaper pencil holders you can leave on the desk or on the table with the games. They are super easy . All you need is a Diaper , Glue Gun, Ribbons, Toilet paper roll, Paper trim, and 3 inch circle cut out for bottom so the pencils don't fall out. Glue and roll the Diaper onto the toilet paper roll and roll it up. Add the 3 inch circle to the bottom then roll the trim onto the  top and glue. Tie it all tight with the ribbons so it looks a little bunched up. Easy and Cute !

Favors are also a big part to have your guest remember your party. Candy tables are always favorites at baby showers as well as cookies and milk tables . This way guests can enjoy there favors there and at home too ! Of course you cant have a dessert area with out cupcakes or give the cupcakes in adorable boxes as the favors alone. These cupcake toppers from LenasCakes which are adorable little baby faces and baby bottle tags that help make your homemade cupcakes beautiful and cuts your decorating time in half ! Another adorable favor is this Washcloth lolly pop from Princessandthepbaby They are cute washcloths rolled up into a lolly pop design and you can add them to a great centerpiece or have them laid out onto the dish when guests sit at there tables.
Now normally I would talk about food but since these parties are usually catered we will leave that to the chefs ! and we can talk about these great gifts for mommy to be and baby !! All it the Pink and green theme . First we have these great milestone gifts . This print from PitterPatterPrint  which is a 8x10 print using the new baby footprints ! what mom or dad wouldn't love this it is such a great baby shower gift that lasts a lifetime. The next one Is these cute milestone Wooden Blocks from GetCraftyCreations perfect ways to set the scene for the monthly picture we all love. Onesie Stickers are always great gifts too for mommy to add to any onesie the baby has on and you have a great monthly picture as well .These from SweetSeraphina In beautiful prints for little girls but they have tons more to match any theme you need ! All these are very personal and great to give because with all the registering mommy forgets the little things they need .
Blankets, Burp clothes and Diaper Carriers are always great gifts and mommy must haves ! you can never have enough blankets and these are stunning . The Green pattern on the blanket from ComfyFeely is stunning and super comfy 100% cotton . The Burp Clothes from Ahmelie and chic and modern this trio beats any boring store made burp cloth pattern ! Another great unique gift is this Diaper carry bag from HalieghsBabyGlam is a clutch type bag to hold and hide all those diapers so cute and so hip !! The last Blanket from Kikikiddos is stunning and the pattern is so beautiful for any nursery I would plan the whole room around it I love it so much . It is also very comfy for baby and 100% cotton . They are all glam gifts you will never find at any baby store and that is what makes them super special !
