I hosted a baby shower for a good friend this weekend & it was so much fun. I  didn’t do the typical baby shower games but created a baby headband making station where all the ladies could make cute flower headbands.

For the headband making station, I got a lot of different flowers & pre-made different colored headbands so people can just glue the flower or clusters of flowers to the headband.

Here’s what you need:

  • Lots of Flowers from The Ribbon Retreat
  • Fold Over Elastic from The Ribbon Retreat
  • Felt Circles or Squares
  • Hot Glue Gun

If you need more detailed info on how to make the headbands, you can go here.

For the decor I rented some white tables & chairs, used lavender tablecloths & got some lace fabric at Joann’s to put on top of the table. I hung up a personalized sign & got some Pouf Balls to hang around the apartment.

It was a lovely shower & everyone had a blast making the headbands.

Favorite Things – English Tea Party – Baby Shower Ideas – Bridal Shower Ideas

English Tea Party - How to throw an english tea party

Afternoon tea began back in the mid 1800s, when the Duchess of Bedford started having a tray of tea with bread and butter served to her in the mid-afternoon. In those days, lunch was served at noon but dinner was not eaten until 8 or even 9 o’clock at night. The Duchess found herself hungry during those long afternoon hours. It became a regular occurrence and as she began to invite other high-society ladies to join her, having Afternoon Tea became the ‘in-thing’ for the upper-class women. Along with tea, there would be small pastries with clotted cream or preserves, delicate sandwiches, and scones.

Today, the tradition is still enjoyed by many. I love the little dainty tea cups, delicious scones & mini sandwiches. I think having an English tea party is an awesome idea for a baby shower, briday shower or just a relaxed afternoon with friends.

Baby Shower Menu Ideas

This weekend I hostess a baby shower for my friend, Neeru and I wanted to share some of my decorations for the shower. The theme was butterflies & flowers.

This day was PERFECT! The weather was beautiful, the company was delightful, and celebrating Neeru and her baby girl {on the way} with lots of girlie goodness was just so wonderful!

I used a lot of different colored butterflies, pink pompoms & flowers for decor. I also made a diaper cake & an advice tree. I purchased some tablecloths to decorate the dessert table and gift table.

On the menu we had a zucchini, broccoli & bell pepper frittata, 2 different kinds of quiche, a fresh citrus spinach & avocado salad, a chinese chicken salad & some mini salmon bagels. For the drinks, I had pink lemonade, to go with the pink theme & of coarse some grapefruit juice mimosas for the guests.

For the dessert table I purchased some beautiful pink cupcakes, I made a baby carriage out of a watermellon to hold the fruit salad & we also had home made ice cream sandwiches.

For the advice tree, I created Wish Cards with pieces of pink, yellow and green card stock. Guests were asked to write advice & wishes for the new mom to be and were asked to hang their cards on the tree so later the guest of honor, Neeru, could take them home. It was a huge hit and a fun project that doubled as a great gift and keepsake!
