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!
The 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!
She wanted to keep the same theme going for little Aurora’s baby shower, so she hired Emma Anderson of Sweet Emma Lou, as event planner and baker for the special event and she took the theme of growth and ran with it. 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!
The table settings were absolutely adorable! Burlap was continued into the theme and the menus were tucked into small burlap pockets at each place setting. Wonderful fresh fruit, along with a variety of sandwiches and quiche was served at the event.
The dessert table was about the most adorable thing ever! Wonderful cake pops were made with beautiful pink details, along with yummy cupcakes and other sweet treats! The tablescape was perfect, which included a large letter “A” for Baby Aurora and a cute scale and wooden accents. It was such a great garden-y feel while being completely unique and feminine!
The cake was simple, yet elegant, as well. Sweet Emma Lou designed the cake with beautiful flowers on top, which complemented the rest of the décor perfectly!
There were many fun activities surrounding the event! Everyone was invited to share advice for the new parents-to-be, and sweet thumb-print trees were created by all of the guests, as well! The photographer for this event, T.Y. Photography, did a great job capturing all of the details!
“Love Notes” were also on the agenda for guests to share with Baby Aurora. How sweet! 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!
