A Southern Style Baby Shower

As a new mommy to be, I knew that when it was my turn to plan and design our very own baby shower that I would go all out and create a southern pink party!!

In our business of event planning and design we work with many wonderful vendors who often become like family and our vendors we chose to work with on this event were no exception. Especially our Desserts, Bradley from Cravinleys went above and beyond when it came to our 3 tiered pink and white baby shower cake!

When I was asked to plan the menu I knew that I wanted pretty food(girly foods) even though this was a couples shower I still liked the idea of all of my favorites! Pasta Salad, Chicken Salad, Cheese Displays, Fruit, Quiche, and Sliders were just a few of the items that Creative Catering were able to serve up!!

The design for this party was easy for me. I am having a girl…so well then the party must be Pink!! I wanted a fun and southern environment to fit in with the beautiful scenery. I worked with Debbie who runs our floral department to create beautiful bubble ball centerpieces filled with Pink and White flowers. We also used old wooden boxes and filled these with similiar flowers.

Many special touches were added as well. I created baby blocks with mod podge, wooden letters and of course lots of glitter. Our maternity pictures as well as a few baby pictures were also placed on the dessert and entry tables for guests to view as they entered the back yard! One of our most favorite projects were the game prizes. With a love of champagne we purchased pink chamapge and made fun tags that said ” Shes about to pop!!” for the guests who won at baby bingo!!
