I’m totally swooning over this new Real Party! It’s a super-stylish, intimate baby shower brunch featuring adorable pinwheels, festive tissue poms, fabulous paper patterns, and a fresh & colorful palette of yellows, greens, browns and blues.

The 3-dimensional invitations are also ridiculously amazing! And added bonus for us – you can find the entire DIY Tutorial for the pretty pinwheels featured in the invites right here on Style Me Pretty!

Our pregnant friend Tracy is on bed rest and so we wanted to do something extra special and over the top in celebration of her and her “little peanut”. Not knowing the sex of the baby, they refer to their little one as “Peanut” – so we decided to run with that and made “Oh Peanut” our tagline.

The invitation started the whole thing off – it was a really small shower (just 8 people) giving us time to create something that we wouldn’t have been able to for a larger number of people. We wanted the invitation to make a statement and thought pinwheels would be something we could make and could carry through to the rest of the shower.

From there our theme was born: Pinwheels and Pom Poms!

Tracy has chosen Robert Kaufman’s Metro Market Chickens fabric for her bedding and color scheme for the nursery, so we drew our inspiration from that and stuck with greens, yellows, blues and browns.

After deciding on the color scheme the rest was a piece of cake! As long as you have a color or group of colors to work with keeping an event cohesive is easy.

We made smaller (less complicated!) pinwheels to decorate the cupcakes, hung pom poms from pomlove on the ceiling, adorned the doorway with a cute “oh peanut” banner printed by Papier Gourmet, and made some scrumptious sugar scrub with the line “from our shower to yours” on the tag.

We even had our own personal caterer (Kari’s oh so talented husband) to cook us brunch!
