This past weekend was my cousin's 'A Brunch for Baby' shower down in Orange County. I previously posted about the planning process (here) and it was so great to see everything come together! And now, I am so excited to meet that sweet baby girl!

Guests were greeted with this sign and a large pink balloon with tassels.

The 'Mama-to-Be'. Doesn't she look glowing?! I even made her flower crown.

I love that they have so many coordinating options. We continued the scalloped theme from the invitations on to these 'Wishes for Baby' cards that we placed on each table setting. We also ordered pink ombre 'Thank You' stickers from Tiny Prints for the top of the favor boxes. Using the favor boxes on the table really helped to fill up the space.

Shower guests enjoyed filling these out and I know Christine will enjoy reading them for years to come.

baby shower favors
The favors were mini bundt cakes.

The biggest challenge we had with the space was that 1. we didn't have a lot of set-up time and 2. that we were unable to hang anything on the (ugly) walls. My solution was to use foam board and lean it against the wall. I painted the board light pink, added the crepe paper flowers (by making holes in the board and pulling them through) and a balloon 'baby' banner to top it off. It worked out great and had a huge impact in the space!

I also whipped up several chalk signs. The secret to nice lettering is to use a chalk pen.

 Since the theme was 'A Brunch for Baby' it wasn't complete without the brunch themed food. We had assorted pastries, a pear salad, fruit kabobs and several different flavored quiches.

  And we can't forget about the cake!

These personalized napkins from Tiny Prints were perfect to serve the cake with at the end of the shower.

So cute! I hate it when facilities make rules like that about hanging things on the walls. It makes it so much more challenging! You did great though.
