8 themed baby shower ideas

I’m a party girl {no, not the crazy wet T-shirt type}! I love attending a good party and I especially love hosting a good party. My party idea file literally grows everyday. Today I spent a ridiculous amount of time online gawking at gorgeous baby shower ideas because my little sister is expecting! For some reason I feel like Spring is ‘baby time’, so thought I’d share some inspiration.

1. First I have to share the twin shower that my amazing friends threw for me last year (thanks Jen). How cute are those two ‘pigs in a blanket’? I love the Napkin Dress too {Tutorial coming soon}!twin shower

2. Brittany Egbert designed this gorgeous Elephant themed shower (she is a Salt Lake City based designer. Lucky Utah girls)…

      I have twins as well. I have tried to dress my girls as Thing One & Two before but could never find any hair that would do. Where did you get your wigs?
      • February 18th, 2010 at 11:20 am
        Shelley says:
        I made their wigs! Super easy,...I just bought 2 long blue feather boas and wrapped them around little hats. I used hot glue to make the boa stick. :)

          Oh, that is SOOO smart! I tried blue hairspray stuff, but it did not look good at all. Now if I can find some blue boas.... Thanks!

      This question is way off base but I was wondering if you could tell me where you found your red and shite stripped socks for your twins for their halloween thing one andthing two costumes? I have twins and I really want to have them be that for halloween this year but I can't find the sock. Your girls were SOOOO cute! Thanks

        Shelley says:
        Sure! I found them at Walmart last year. They were actually women's knee high christmas socks. I just cut off the feet. :) -I'm sure you could find red and white striped leggings on etsy? --I'd love to see their pictures! :)

      What a great selection of baby shower themes. I really love the Turtle baby shower theme, but my favorite has just got to be that awesome picture of Thing 1 and Thing 2, it made me laugh.

      The babys look so cute.

      First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!
