The same weekend I held Henry’s first birthday party, I also hosted a baby shower for my dear friend Whitney. I have known this girl since we were in pre-school! I was so excited to co-host this shower for her first baby! It was also fun to do something pink and girly the day after having everything blue. The pro of having two parties in one weekend is getting to use some of the same decor, the con is that by the time the parties are over you’re exhausted! But it was all worth it!

The tribal pow-pow theme came from this adorable invitation, found here.

Melanie spruced up the flowers on the dining room table by adding pops of pink…so pretty!

I absolutely adore these printables found on BelvaJune. Be brave little one, be brave!

I made the banner one afternoon using my cousin’s Silhouette Cameo, coral cardstock paper, and gold glitter cardstock paper. I really want one of these bad boys for Christmas!! The oversized dreamcatchers were one of my favorite elements from the party. I made them with embroidery hoops, a doily, and ribbon. Pretty cute and simple for only $10!

I made the cupcake toppers on picmonkey to match the printables. I love how they turned out! They really added a pop of color to the cupcakes!

At the last minute, I made the monogram/name circles to add in the mason jars. They looked so bare when I took out the ones from Henry’s party. I really cannot say enough about picmonkey! If you’ve never used it, you should totally give it a try. I’d describe it as photoshop for dummies (aka me!!) and it’s free…win win!! Look for some simple picmonkey tutorials in the future!

Whitney actually requested this idea…so smart! I mean who wants to be addressing thank you notes when they’re 9 months pregnant or in the glory days of having a newborn??

This was such a sweet and special occasion shared between friends and family. Whitney–I am so excited for you to become a mommy, and I can’t wait to meet and love on sweet baby girl! Love you!!
