Operation Shower Sunshine Farms Event Recap!

If you’re a longtime reader, than you may remember waaaay back in the day when I helped put together an Operation Shower event here in San Diego with a modern-meets-rustic “Sunshine Farms” theme. Well, fast forward to today, and I’m so excited to share the UPDATED twist on this theme with you!

When OS decided to use this theme again for an event in Atlanta this past fall, I thought it was about time for the paper collection to get a little makeover first. :) So I spiffed up the original designs a bit and created some playful new signage with phrases like “About to Hatch” and “It’s a BABY, Ya’ll!“. Then, true to form, Operation Shower & their incredibly talented volunteer vendors worked their magic on adorable matching decorations and desserts. The result was this amazing celebration for 30 deserving military moms, and all I can say is… YA’LL, it turned out SUPER SWEET! ;)

P.S. If you want to use this paper collection for a baby shower of your own – it will be available for purchase on Hostess INK early next week! Stay tuned…

DECOR HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Rag tie fabric garlands on the chairs + a colorful bandana-and-doily dessert table garland
– Festive centerpieces with chalkboard rooster silhouettes & darling plush chickens
– Modern farm scene cake (LOVE!) + vibrant & colorful hand-painted farm cookies
– Boxed lunches with gingham napkins + “Raised with Love” drink flags
– Stamped burlap table runners, spilled veggie baskets, & “fresh picked” farm florals

A Gorgeous Lemon & Lavender Baby Shower

If you haven’t gotten your springtime fix from the previous bridal shower post (we know we haven’t), then you’re in luck! As promised, here is the Lemon & Lavender Baby Shower dreamed up by Valerie Gimre of Charming Touch Parties, who simultaneously planned both showers around the same theme, but with their own unique details! In Valerie’s own words, “Both events were lovely, charming, and memorable in their own ways.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves ;).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Lemon adorned floral arrangements & a fondant bow, lavender flowers & lemon slice decorated cake
– Blackberry garnished champagne + berry topped mini cakes, lemon bars & cake ball baby rattles
– Custom ‘Wishes for Mom’ book for guests to write in + pinwheel & lemon onesie garlands
– Framed lavender baby carriage & ribbon bunting backdrop + carriage decorated cookie favors

Charming Rustic Little Pumpkin Baby Shower

I always love seeing occasion showers with a seasonal twist, and this baby shower is a perfect example! Katie Farmer of Celebration Lane drew inspiration from fall colors, flavors, and textures to create a Rustic Little Pumpkin Baby Shower theme with just the right mix of sweetness and vintage charm. And as impressive as the styling and all these pretty treats may be (I mean, the fondant toppers actually have burlap and lace textures!), my favorite detail has to be the adorable Big Sis! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Simple naked cake with mini burlap & lace bunting + cute baby-sized pumpkin naked cakes
– Fall-inspired rag tie fabric garland + bright orange mason jars wrapped in lace
– Mini pumpkin donuts displayed on a bed of crushed Oreo “dirt”
– Incredibly detailed lacy fondant toppers and lace-adorned onsie sugar cookies
– Handmade paper pumpkins filled with treats (DIY tutorial coming soon)
