My sister-in-law is expecting her second boy later this month! My nephew Conner is the cutest little 6 year old and he will make the best older brother! While we were in Idaho for Thanksgiving (which was delightful) we also threw Kellie a little baby shower. It was such a good time! Plus I had so much help from my mother-in-law and sister-in-laws Shayly and Angie.
I’m not entirely sure what to name this baby shower since it is a combination of arrows, trees, chalk, plaid, feathers and gold glitter so for now lets call it a warm and woodsy baby shower, ok? While planning it I knew I didn’t want to do a very common baby boy shower theme like mustaches or airplanes and I was inspired by Todd and Kellie’s family pics where they were wearing plaid. Plaid is not usually something I think of for party decor but it ended up complimenting the rest of the decor quite nicely.
For the main food table backdrop I used chalkboard contact paper. Chalkboard contact paper is one of my favorite things ever since it is easily removable and so easy to use (you just peel and stick). My other sister-in-law Angie drew the awesome banner and did the beautiful wording. Greg actually drew the arrows and he was pretty proud of himself.
I (with Shayly’s help) made 3 cardboard cake stands and covered 2 in plaid wrapping paper and one in black and gold arrow paper (download here).
For additional decor I made a simple arrow garland and attached feathers to sticks and placed the sticks inside mason jars.
I even added some glitter tape to the sticks. The shower was a brunch so we had juice, mini scones, mini cinnamon rolls, individual granola in cups, mini frittatas and pastries.
Look at those good helpers! (did I mention that my husband is an identical twin?!)
The shower was a blast and our whole trip to Boise was truly wonderful. We don’t get to just hang out and talk with family nearly enough.
