Girl’s Baby Shower {Owl}

Some friends and I hosted my sister-in-law’s baby shower over the weekend.  My sista is the best and has a cool, funky sense of style.  She’s having a girl, Miss V, and doing the nursery in an owl theme.  Here’s some pictures we snapped at the shower.

The entryway was adorned with a clothesline holding adorable onesies.

Inside the formal dining room is where the gifts were stored until time to open.

All of the guests signed future birthday cards to be opened by Ms. V on her 1st, 5th, 10th, 16th, 18th, and 21st birthday.  I can’t take credit for that idea, but I thought it was fun and everyone enjoyed writing special sentiments.

Of course we played, “Guess Mommy’s Tummy Size”  (how cute is that colored yarn?!)

And ate yummy treats (one of the creative hostesses designed these cute little food display cards and the invite).  The shower was from 2-4, so we made appetizers (mini quiches, chicken salad croissant sandwiches, and fruit skewers).  Mimosas and wine were also served.

Jelly beans filled these decorative jars from Home Goods.

The cupcake toppers were from an Etsy shop (I’ll have to ask for specifics and update later).

Pretty flowers were a must.

Even the itty-bittiest guests had fun!
