REAL PARTIES: Darling Bow-Tie Baby Shower

REAL PARTIES: Darling Bow Tie Baby Shower

Get ready for a serious dose of adorable… because this Bow-Tie themed baby shower thrown for Jesi Haack & her new little man is exactly that! Bow-ties adorned everything from mason jars and flower arrangements to the darling ruffle cake, sugar cookies, and stationery. I think my personal favorite detail has to be the ultra creative “bow tie” party garland fashioned from diapers & ribbon though!

REAL PARTIES: Darling Bow Tie Baby Shower

“For Jesi’s baby shower, we (me, Carissa of JL Designs & Melody of Sweet & Saucy Shop) decided to celebrate her new little man by having a bow-tie themed party. Posh Paperie‘s invitations set the tone for the clean, cheery decor.

Guests were greeted with a little ribbon bow-tie clip I made, which everyone wore throughout the shower. Instead of a guestbook, Carissa wrote a mad lib to fill in about the baby, which was a lot of fun!

For the decor we incorporated in pops of mustard yellow, kelly green and baby blue. Carissa used a variety of white ceramic vases to keep it light and modern and filled them with an array of monobotanical arrangements using our theme colors – white pom pom dahlias (Jesi’s favorite!), white hydrangea and yellow ranunculas. Wrapped around each vase was a striped or polka dot “bow tie”, which I created using striped and polka dot ribbons in coordinating colors.

To deviate from the standard diaper cake, I created a bow-tie garland using diapers and ribbon.

For lunch, Carissa, Melody and I made light options including bow-tie pasta salad, chicken salad sandwiches with coordinating ribbon picks and tiny sized tomato basil soups.
