Adventure & Camping Boy Baby Shower
A quick little recap from last spring when my sister and I threw our other sister a baby shower for her little adventure baby. The idea came from the fabrics and theme our sister, Sara, chose for her baby's room. I loved this theme, because we tried to stick with globe colors or green, blue and yellow, then tossed in a handful of vintage floral linens and a few patterns, too. We picked up this vintage globe bank as a gift for Baby T and I moved a sign in from our guest room on an old high chair she found for me at a yard sale.
We also pulled out a vintage map and some globes that live in our guest room, added some garlands from Target and called it fancy. Our Mom gifted her a baby seat and stroller combo, so we popped a bow on those, assembled them and used them as party decor of sorts. We seperated the drink station out from food to keep guests moving around the house and served up lemonade and water.
The shower was in the afternoon, so shared a variety of 'trail snacks' that included veggies, fruits, cracker and cheese and some pasta salad. We also included cashews, as those were a craving of my sister's while she was pregnant. I homemade a funfetti cake with chocolate icing that matched the colors and we all dug in after the presents were open. Loved digging up a few old photos of my sister and her husband as kids, too, and popped them in the clipboards overtop some ripped out pages from an old atlas I found at the Goodwill.
Guests left with their own little baggie of trail mix that featured the mom-to-be's favorite snacks and that sweet little TeePee onesie was a gift to our sister. Lots of simple things, a bunch of chopped up yummy food - but mostly just a gaggle of ladies excited to meet and love on a new baby gathering together to celebrate! It doesn't have to be expensive or extravagant to be meaningful and a blessing of a shower!
