As always, Zeta really does make things happen for me. One of my sorors was welcoming her first grandchild and was planning a baby shower for the “birth of a southern gentleman.” Yes, that’s exactly what she said. She sent me a copy of the shower invite, a cute little black and white number with a mustache prominently displayed on the top, and I designed the event around that.
In sticking with the gentleman theme, I wanted to include some artwork for the tables, but I didn’t find anything that fit the bill, so I made my own. I had them printed and framed and I placed one on each table. #Fancy
The guest tables included elegant black table linens, the gentleman artwork, white gift boxes with luscious satin ribbon, vintage style milk bottles, fluffy white carnations in baby food jars, and a little teddy bear with coordinating ribbon. While we’re on the subject, who knew that a teddy bear was a seasonal item?!?!? Apparently everyone else buys them around Christmas. We won’t discuss how hard these were to find (in May), but we will gaze upon their plushness in the next few photos.
That DIY bow tutorial came in handy for this shower. I made diaper cakes for the head table with hand made bow tie decorations. I was really happy with how they came out. I also made extra and pinned them on onesies (not pictured) for the mommy-to-be to take home for the little gentleman.
Lastly, here’s the dessert table. I used the same stands from our wedding and they look great here with these ‘stached out cupcakes by A Little Slice of Heaven. The mommy-to-be also requested a boxed cupcake tower that’s pictured below.
