Twinkle Twinkle Baby Shower Decor

Sunday, a few girls in my home group and I threw a baby shower for our friend.  She sent us two photos as her nursery inspiration (both had white + grey with pops of coral and gold).   The co-hosts and I decided to work with these and host a “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” themed shower to emphasize the gold. Our house was perfect since we have so much grey and white. It was a huge hit because of all of the little details in the baby shower decor.

Tips:

Co-host.  Don’t try to plan a whole shower by yourself and take on the financial responsibility.  It can get expensive and is much easier on your wallet (and your sanity) if you divvy out responsibilities.

Plan.  Be sure to work out all of the details and stay in communication with the co-hosts.  This will keep everything running smoothly.

Decor.  Keep decor simple.  If you are crafty…DIY your baby shower decor.  If you aren’t, look on Etsy to support people who are.

Entryway decor is simple. Decor: Light up star, framed invitation, vase with roses and baby’s breath, M (for name) and little favors.  Guests wrote funny or sweet messages on diapers for the couple to read during late night changes instead of a traditional sign in book.

Texas ladies love brunch, so our baby shower featured finger breakfast foods (sausage balls, mini quiches, banana bread), a yogurt parfait bar, cake, cupcakes, and drinks (tea, lemonade, strawberry cucumber mint infused water, and a coffee bar).

Fun personalization idea: Give every girl had a “milk bottle” with a name tag, so drinks don’t get mixed up.

Yogurt parfait bar: Put ice in a basket and cover with cloth.  Grab a few different flavors of yogurt (strawberry, original, plain, etc.) and put in basket.  Toppings can include fruit (strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries), granola, raisins (or other dried fruits), honey and cinnamon.

Switch out the coral for blue/mint and you have a boy baby shower decor too!  This shower was easy to pull off with the help from others, and everyone commented on how pretty everything was.  Most importantly, the mama loved it and baby M was showered with lots of love.

    I love everything about this! I am looking for inspiration for my 1 year olds birthday and I think I have just found it! Thank you so much!

  • Ali B June 9, 2016 at 11:47 pm

    Love the decor! The colors are exactly what I would pick.

  • Clare Speer June 10, 2016 at 8:30 am

    Lovely lovely – especially the decorations! Yes, great tips and especially the one where we should never take on a baby shower by ourselves… my niece helped me co-host my daughter’s baby shower and she and a friend did all the decorations, set up, etc…. I could have never done that without her and it turned out wonderful!

    • Jessica June 11, 2016 at 3:07 pm

      I am so glad to hear that! Sharing responsibilities with others is for sure the way to go.

  • Rachel June 10, 2016 at 12:00 pm

    This is so darling! I love the idea of giving everyone milk jars with name tags for their drinks. And that cake looks so delicious!

    • Jessica June 11, 2016 at 3:04 pm

      I went to a shower a couple of years ago that did that and thought it was the cutest idea! Thank you so much.

  • ValAroundTown June 11, 2016 at 1:02 pm

    This is so cute and great for even a birthday party, I love your attention to detail!

    • Jessica June 11, 2016 at 3:03 pm

      Thank you so much!
