Today was Baby Emma’s shower. It’s one I’ve been planning for a while. The theme for this shower was based in color….hot pink, tangerine and lemon, and over time, I found flowers appearing often as well! Here’s the pictures!

I set up a candy buffet to add some color and to use as favors

Here’s a close-up of the cake….and yes, even it was pink and yellow!

This was the entry table. It held the diaper cake, guest packets, “Price is Right” game basket, the onsie for guests to sign for the baby, name tags (decorated with pink, orange and yellow sharpies!), a “guess the number” game (in this case, guess how many chocolates) and a beach themed gift box for the guest whose birthday was the closest to the mom’s due date.

Here’s a closer picture of the Price is Right basket and the gift box. The gift baskets contained a beach towel, insulated cup, sunscreen and after sun lotion.

Diaper cake!

A pink and orange polka dot onsie for Baby Emma, signed by each guest….perfect for framing!

As guests arrived they each took a guess at the day Baby Emma will arrive.

Each person wrote their name on a tag, and pinned it to the day of their choosing.

The entry table also held these guests packets. Each packet contained the 2 paper based games we played, an 8×8 scrap-booking page we used to make the guestbook and a blank card where each guest wrote advice for the mom to be.

Here are a few of the pages made for the guestbook, and the book itself. Pictures will be added to each page.

The gift table held an “Emma” sign, painted to match the color scheme.

This is a pin I made for the mommy to be to wear, but unfortunately I left it at home!

The shower was held outside on a patio in the community center of my friend’s neighborhood. The colors looked beautiful together, especially out in the bright sunshine!

Here’s an update to a previous post, Pocket Invitations… A Success. After making the mock up of the invitation, we worked out some details, changed the main card color and went on to make the full set. These invitations are for a baby shower planned in may, but can be customized for any event. The invites consist of a main invitation card and 4 inserts: “special requests”, “RSVP”, “location” and “registry”. Take a look!

Here’s a goodie that arrived in the mail today. I ordered them for the hot pink, tangerine and lemon colored shower I’m planning for this May for a baby girl (See post: Loving that Summer Feeling). I ordered these from Land of Nod. They came in a variety of colors, I chose the orange ones with hot pink handles….so cute!


I plan to use the smaller two for stands/decorations on the candy buffet and I’m using the larger one for a price is right type game where guests will guess the cost of a case filled with baby products (diaper cream, orajel, a bottle, etc). The person who guesses the closest without going over wins a prize and the mom gets the case filled with the baby products! Win Win!

Hot pink, tangerine and lemon. The colors for my next baby shower for a little baby girl arriving this spring. I wanted a more modern color scheme that combined with the time of year makes this one perfect! I love the “oh baby” centerpiece and it should be pretty simple to make. I’ve always wanted to try out a candy buffet and I think this will be the one to do it, with cute tins/ boxes to fill up and take home! I also plan to include the izze drinks in coordinating colors…which I think would be very festive! Stay tuned for updates!
