Today’s Real Party feature is an absolutely GORGEOUS Shabby Chic Baby Shower created/hosted by Kristeen from Kristeen LaBrot Events.

From the fabulous color palette and whimsical floral designs to the pretty milk glass vases and creative fabric decor (check out the guest of honor’s stunning chair!), this party is a buffet of eye candy and full of great inspiration for everything from spring/summer baby and bridal showers to girlie birthday parties!

“The shower’s theme was “whimsy chic“and featured shades of pink with apple-green accents and lots of vintage milk glass vases.  I rented Pink Champagne Lamour linens and Apple Green Lamour napkins and had a custom runner made with bunny damask print by Tula Pink.

Cut pieces of fabric hung from the guest of honor’s chair and were secured with a peony.  Vintage fabric pennants hung from the fence.

The favors were baby block shaped cake pops from CAKEGoodness and were displayed on top of the napkins at each place setting.

I decorated the manzanita tree with ruffle balls and hanging pink baby rattles

I also made the tags that were on the cake pops and the framed sign asking guests to “Please Write a Love Note to Baby G.” The guest book was a copy of Disney’s Cinderella as the mom-to-be was Cinderella at Walt Disney World for several years!

The menu consisted of: Mini Pigs in a Blanket, Caprese Skewers, Veggie/Fruit Platter, Brownie Bites, Lemon Cakes, Almond Tea Cakes, Fruit Infused Water, Peach Champagne Punch, and a Mocktail version of the punch.

For activities, we played the “My Water Broke” game and a “Celebrity Baby Name Game” that I designed.”
