It's A Girl!

No, no, not for me! For my sweet friend, Beth. A couple of weeks ago, some of my favorite ladies and I hosted a baby shower at my place to welcome our lovely Beth's bun in the oven (who, by the way, she has named the adorable name of Ella Kate!).  

Party planning is really so much fun, but it can definitely be stressful. Especially when your kitchen is halfway painted and there are drop cloths, paint cans and painters tape all over the place the day before the party (seriously? who starts a kitchen makeover right before hosting a party?!). Luckily my husband ROCKS so we got it all done and the party was a hit.

Here I am with the glowing mommy-to-be!

The fun thing about parties for babies (and especially little girl ones!) are all of the cutesie decorations you can throw together. We opted for lots and lots of pink, of course!

Here are some of Ella Kate's little pink gifts (how tiny are those onesies?!) displayed on the mantle.

We scattered lots of pretty pink flowers around the house.

I made Ella Kate a little welcome banner with some adorable scrapbook paper.

And yes, those are plastic folding chairs at my new dining room table. Classy, right?!! Ha... as I've said before, the chairs are a work in progress.... 

But my favorite part were these adorable tissue paper pom poms we put up in the kitchen.

How cute are these?! Lets be honest... they are still hanging in my kitchen. You call it lazy, I call it my first chance to decorate with pink since I've been married! I promise they'll come down before the Christmas decorations go up :)

And here are all of the lovely hostesses with the mommy-to-be! I love my girls!

With the holiday season just around the corner, I am sure many of you will be hosting a party soon. What's your best party planning or hosting tip?!

  1. what a beautiful shower!!!

    jillian xoxo

  2. fun, sweet shower! Love the pom daughter's room has those (left over from a party too, I just couldn't part with them!)

    Good for you for not rushing out and grabbing chairs just because you hosted a party...this way you're sure to get what you love!

  3. ahhh, I love decorating for showers. So sweet!!

  4. so cute. I love those pom poms! I have some turquoise ones in my craft room! so I get to have them up for as long as I want! LOL! :)
    cute idea with the onesies- I initially thought the Ella Kate banner was done in the same way with baby bibs! Great ideas.

  5. So cute. Those pom poms are darling. And I still want to steal the windows by the pom poms. So great. And you are adorable!

  6. how cute! you did a great job decorating!

  7. Ah! So adorable. And it's totally okay that they're still hanging. I'd leave them all year! I've been seeing the cute pom poms for a while now...where'd you get yours? And Ella Kate is a very cute name! (I'm the girl who's had her baby names picked out since I was 10...ha!) (:

  8. What a beautiful shower. I'd keep the pom poms up too, they are fantastic.

  9. Everything looked beautiful! I hosted a baby shower and made poms poms too - they were definitely a hit. What if you just replaced the pink ones with green ones? Instant fun Christmas decor!

  10. The poms are so cute- and I love seeing the little onesies! They outgrow them so fast:(

  11. Beautiful party Michelle! I too love the pom poms, so fun!

  12. Too funny! I made those SAME pom pom balls (in purple and gold) for a wedding shower I hosted November 7th! I guarantee we were sitting at home folding and cutting tissue paper at the same time!! Great minds think alike :)


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think. I ♥ comments.
