"dreamy" baby shower

A few weeks ago now one of my bestest of friends had her first baby.  She is the most beautiful, full- head-of-hair, gorgeous baby!! Getting to hold this little pumpkin I remembered I hadn't posted any pictures of the shower we had thrown for her mom a few months back.

There are so many cute baby showers ideas, sometimes it is hard to decide what to do, but I had seen these homemade clouds from a few different blogs and I really wanted to build the party around these!  So a dream/cloud theme was born.  My invitation queen Kate of Paper Rock Scissor did the adorable invitations that compliment everything so nicely! And thanks to Heidi of Heidi Lynn Photography for taking these pictures!
 the doily wrap and scallop edge on the address wrap helped introduce the clouds 

wild rice soup, bread & fresh salad was on the menu

of course we needed some actual clouds in the room.  thanks pinterest for all the how-to's!!

all the desserts had some "cloud" quality to them
etsy is so great for finding those finishing touches like these cloud straw decorations...

aren't those baby cups the cutest!!!

my first go at royal icing on sugar cookies.  I definitely want to make these again!

overall these were some of my favorite flowers I have worked with...the peonies, cotton and astilbe all went so well with the clouds

we requested guests bring books instead of a card.  Everyone was a fan, especially the pretty mama who has a good start on baby's library now!

Can't wait to see baby Teegan grow up!!


  1. OMG!! What an elegant baby shower. Seriously in love with all your décor and arrangements. Will love to use your ideas for my friend’s baby shower that will he organized at one of LA venues. Thanks for sharing amazing post and ideas too.
