We are anxiously anticipating the arrival of my sister Christian’s third baby. She has two boys already and tried for a girl, only to remain the only woman in the house. Nonetheless, we are so so excited to see baby Isiah’s face and sniff him! Am I the only one who loves the way newborns smell? LOL! He’s due on December 1st, the day of our traditional, so as you can imagine we are so anxious and nervous about his arrival. Since this is my sister’s third baby, she insisted she did not want to have a baby shower but we persisted. Finally, she gave in to the idea of a “small” baby shower and we planned it all in less than a month.
Planning events is a huge part of my career, so it’s easy for me to run through an event from A to Z in my head. From the guest list to decor to the items we can’t forget to bring, like tape and scissors, I can knock it out pretty easily. I decided on a Bohemian Chic baby shower for her, since she’d already decorated his room in a cute black and white Where the Wild Things Are theme. The majority of the decor came off of Amazon, but I did pick up some other items from local art supply stores like Michaels, Target and grocery stores.
The more events I plan, the more detail oriented I get because I realize how tiny details make things so much more special. This “simple” baby shower quickly turned a little fancier with every cute item I found that I felt we had to have. The teepee for his gifts, the take-home succulents for our guests and even the tiny gold spoons for the build-your-own yogurt parfaits were non-negotiable.
For anyone planning a baby shower, or even a bridal shower, I went ahead and rounded up all of the items I purchased because I know you all will ask 😉 If you need any other information about desserts, caterers or anything else, leave me a comment! I’m happy to help!
