{Party Bee} Pretty in Pink & Gold Baby Shower Collection

I was so honored when I was asked to design a collection for a friend's baby shower last month. There is always something so special and fun about creating shower printables. I guess it is the fact that a new little person is coming into the world and it a celebration of such a miracle! Because the shower is for a baby girl, I knew I wanted the feel of the collection to be shabby chic meets a touch of glam. Thus the color palette was created, light pink and white with a hint of gray and an accent of glitter gold. Once that was determined, everything else was easy and the Pretty in Pink & Gold Baby Shower Collection was "born"! Now it is available for purchase!

The entire collection is $35 and comes with the following:

- 5x7 invitation (envelope not included)
- "Oh Baby" banner
- "Baby's Name" banner
- "Sweet Baby" banner
- Circle tags in 3 designs
- 4x6' signs in 4 designs
- Thank you tags
- Water bottle labels in 2 designs
- Straw flags
- Treat bag label
- Blank Place cards
- 8x10" Menu Sign
- Menu tent cards outlining what's on the menu sign
- Coordinating patterned paper

To order this collection, just send me an email with the party information (i.e. date, time, place, RSVP, etc.), receive the files electronically, print out what you need, then cut and assemble!

{Party Bee} Client Feature: Carmen's Pretty in Pink & Gold Baby Shower

I recently had the pleasure to work with and attend a shower for a wonderful mom-to-be, Carmen, and her baby girl, Hayden.

Working with her family to put together the perfect shower was a lot of fun and everything turned out just beautifully. Carmen's cousin (and my bestie), Gabby, really outdid herself with all of the decorations and yummy treats and I am so excited to share the shower photos with you!

When I was approached by my friend to design the decorations I immediately thought shabby chic using light pink with accents of glitter gold for a touch of glam! Once I created the printables, Gabby took off with the rest of the goodies, games, and  party favors.
The table was very sweet (no pun intended) and was filled with pretty decorations to help accent the treats. I loved how baby Hayden's name was a focus of the party.
One of the highlights of the table was a homemade cake by Gabby herself. The sweet ribbon frosting was the perfect touch for the shabby chic table and the cake topper really finished it off so nicely. Also, how cute are those chocolate covered marshmallow baby rattles!?1?
Water bottles with coordinating labels is such a nice party favor for guests as well as a nice refreshing beverage. Seeing the little baby pink shoes just reminds of how little they are when they are born. "Oh baby" indeed....everyone is so excited for Carmen and to meet her little bundle of joy!
If Gabby didn't outdo herself with her cake, she definitely did with the cake pops! She even made her party games cute by adding little coordinating tags to them.
What has to be the most creative element to this party, was the Waffle Bar! I have heard of serving brunch at a baby shower but I have never heard of a waffle bar, but when I did I thought, how brilliant! Guests got to pick their toppings and enjoy a delicious waffle....and they look so pretty too!
Each party table had a little frame featuring Hayden's initial, but also congratulation Carmen, as it is very much her special day as we celebrate the mama-to-be and welcome the arrival of her first baby!
I loved the party favors for all of the guests. Everyone received a small Bath and Body Works Sweet Pea antibacterial hand gel. The tag was adorable and read "Thanks for celebrating the mommy-to-be and her little sweet pea". How adorable, I just love it!
This baby shower was just so pretty and I hope Carmen had such a special and wonderful day!

Congratulations Mama!

{Party Bee} Client Feature: Jackson's Pokemon Inspired Birthday Party

My cousin's sweet little boy, Jackson, turned 4 this year and he had the cutest little Pokemon party. It was simple, and sweet, and completely adorable! Jackson's mom did an incredible job. Everyone had such a great time celebrating the birthday boy with this fun and colorful theme!
She hung a fun poke ball "Happy Birthday" banner above the dessert table that was full of yummy goodies and party favors.
Pikachu and Poke ball water bottles, also known as "Squirtle Spit"(how cute is that!) on the menu tent cards added more Pokemon fun!
I just loved how she was able to use Pokemon terms for the goodies on her table. The "Jigglypuffs" were my kids favorite treat!
Every child that attended the party was given a little party favor bag that was adorned with coordinating labels!

This was a super cute party, great job!  Everyone sure did have a ball! 

Happy Birthday Jackson!
