A Baby Shower

February 12, 2012

I threw my first baby shower today. Have you seen Bump Smitten? It is an amazing resource for baby shower ideas. While perusing the site one day, I fell in love with a design of yellow and grey elephants.

Just to let you know how amazing the site is, they have PDF downloads of the entire shower for FREE!

As a thank you to Bump Smitten for being so fabulous, I am posting photos of their documents in action. I didn’t take photos of the invitations, but they were adorable.

Included in the downloads is a template for invitations, games, and decorations. Each is customizable by adding text to the PDF.

I wish I would have taken more pictures of the actual printouts, but you can see the full documents on Bump Smitten’s site.

As you can see, this was simply a post to tell you how much I love that site. You should go to it if you are planning a shower anytime soon.

As you can see from the photos, I served chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting, chocolate chip cookies, and lemon bars. The recipes are linked if you are interested.

    Did you host this baby shower for yourself, or for someone else? I’m wondering because I don’t have a close friend where I live who could host my shower, and I’m trying to debate whether to host one myself or just not have one. Etiquette says no to hosting your own shower…

      I hosted it for a friend. I’m no etiquette expert, but I’d say you probably shouldn’t host one for yourself. Maybe just hint around to some of the people you would invite to a shower that you wish you could have one.
