Boy Baby Shower Decorations and Menu

I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I really do love to entertain. I love to have people over and make them happy, comfortable and well fed! Recently I had the pleasure of hosting a baby shower for my beautiful, adorable friend Lisa. She is the kind of pregnant that makes one excited to be in one's 3rd trimester only to realize that she is, in fact, the exception not the rule...

I REST MY CASE! Ok posting that picture of Lisa was kind of a last minute decision....I hope she doesn't kill me :) But doesn't she look fabulous!?

Aaaaannyways, I am excited to show you what we did for the shower! (And when I say we I am talking about myself and my two friends Rachael and Anna who are simply fabulous) 


I am not huge on themes when it comes to my own parties (though I do love them when other people host them!). So this is what we came up with. I will be doing a tutorial for the giant flowers on the backdrop in a post next week!

So as you can see our main flower was Babies Breath scattered throughout the house in lovely vases. This really tied everything together. We also had Cherry Blossom branches that were absolutely stunning on the table (Thank you Anna!!) Everything else you see on the tables were random pieces from each of our own homes and I think the effect is just gorgeous. 

For the menu we had an assortment of cheeses, cured meats, breads and crackers. Red Velvet cupcakes for dessert (thanks to my fabulous Mom!) And these unbelievably delicious salads (seriously I am starving looking at these pictures)

Salads left to right: Italian Pasta Salad, Fruit Salad with Pomegranate seed and Mint, Asian Cabbage Salad, and Arugula salad with herbed feta

Are you drooling??? I am! 

Thanks for tuning in! XOXO Christie

Oh my goodness.
This makes me want to get pregnant, move to California, become besties with you, and then ask you to plan my baby shower.
Hahaha

UM....yeah, she's all cute and hot from behind...and from the front too, I'm sure, but she's one of those that you'd never know she's pregnant until you get a side shot! LUCKY!

Gorgeous! I love the addition of fresh mint to the fruit salad. I'll have to try that! Beautiful.

Absolutely fabulous. Love the colors and how totally contemporary it looks. I was never one for baby-baby themed parties. This is beautiful! Love the flowers; can't wait to learn how to make them (and the salads???).
