Picnic Themed Baby Shower

Another party in my PARTIES PAST series:

SEPTEMBER 2011: CATHY'S BABY SHOWER

This is a shower for my sister Cathy, who was pregnant with her first baby - a girl! We went with a literal shower/picnic theme to complement Cathy's gray, pink, & turquoise nursery.

I made white and blue tissue paper "clouds" (tutorial here) and hung an umbrella above the food table, and set out a pink gingham table cloth for our picnic munchies.

We had deviled eggs, mini sandwiches, cookies, cheese & crackers, veggies, and a fruit salad.
Drinks were a pink punch and water bottles.

For the plates, cups, and napkins, I used picnic baskets lined with turquoise gingham fabric.

It turned out really cute! Thanks to Stephanie, I didn't have to climb up onto my parents' dining room table in all my 8-month-belly glory to hang up the decorations.

Here is the entrance table.
It has advice cards for the mom-to-be, a rainboot full of pens,
and a picnic basket to add your completed card.






























I also set up a craft table for the guests to make something for Cathy. I used the same hair clip materials (tutorial here) that I had used earlier this summer for Pia's shower, and also set up a onesie-making station (I got the idea from a 2009 post by Oh Happy Day, that has since been removed, but tutorials are everywhere now!) Sadly, I forgot to take pictures of the completed projects, but they turned out really cute.
