Hello and Happy FRIDAY! AFS here. Many of you know that my husband and I are expecting a baby girl in August. To honor the coming of our little one, my friends offered to throw me a baby shower, and, of course, I eagerly accepted. True to form, my friends threw an incredible party, right down to every last fantastic detail. I just had to share with you their beautiful success!
Since the temps in Memphis are already SO HOT, they knew that a poolside baby shower would be the perfect theme. The invites set the stage for the poolside par-tay. Here are the perfect parasol/ beachy invites that they used to announce the event (from tinyprints.com):
My friends used our baby girl's nursery colors (aqua, orange, and pink, as found in the Target Liberty of London crib bedding) as the color scheme, and this awesome tutorial (found at hostessblog.comwas the starting point for their entire decor scheme:
They used a Cricut machine to make monogram labels for everything...from the banner between the topiaries, to the drink tags featuring her monogram for the Izze drinks.
The food was perfect for an outdoor event. Melon was served in a watermelon baby crib (built by one of the hostesses' husbands!), and kabobs, pasta salad, spinach salad, and to die for guacamole rounded out the lunch. Cupcakes with baby girl's monogram were a perfect sweet ending to a fresh and delicious meal.
If you have a summer baby shower, why not consider a poolside party? The water does wonders for relieving the expectant mama's sore feet, back, joints, etc. (I can speak from firsthand experience on that one!), and there are plenty of party goods and ready-made decorations to take your shower from snoozy to splashy! Hope you enjoyed this poolside parasol baby shower!
