Watch Me Grow Baby Shower

Getting ready for that special little bundle of joy is such an exciting time in any expectant parent’s life! And one of the most exciting times during that period is the baby shower! This Momma-To-Be knew exactly what kind of theme she wanted and already knew she was having a little girl that they were going to name Aurora. Based on a “growth theme” her and her husband had already been following throughout her pregnancy, they decided to have a Watch Me Grow Baby Shower!

watch-me-grow-baby-showerThe growth theme had been started long before the baby shower! These soon-to-be parents used plants in their baby announcements and they also used a pink violet to announce that they were having a baby girl! Momma even brought this same plant to her maternity photo shoot! What a great idea!

We LOVE the little details she wove into the big day!  The burlap, calligraphy tags by Fine Print Calligraphy, and sweet plants are such a sweet theme and it all came together beautifully!

Wonderful fresh fruit, along with a variety of sandwiches and quiche was served at the event.

It was such a great garden-y feel while being completely unique and feminine!

Photography, did a great job capturing all of the details!

Everyone was invited to write notes that were either hung on sweet tree branches (how awesome with the Watch Me Grow theme?!?!), or were able to tuck the advice into small envelopes on the growth ruler. So original, and totally adorable!  This baby shower had such a fun, earthy vibe and was a wonderful way for this couple’s friends and family to welcome them to the world of parenthood!
