Rustic Baby Shower

Over the weekend I had the honor of co-hosting a baby shower for my dear friend, Murin, and it was awesome (if I do say so myself). Our friend, Robin, and I started planning this shindig a few months ago. We wanted to create a shower that wasn't the "standard", while incorporating aspects of Murin's wedding into the design. Thanks to family, friends, Pinterest and a lot of blood, sweat and tears, I think it's safe to say we pulled off one hell of a shower. And Muriny deserves it!

GETTING OUR NOSH ON: We created this table staging with canning jars in varying colors and sizes, antique doilies in all shapes and sizes, flowers, twine, ribbon, burlap, tree stump slices, mini-chalkboards, handmade toothpick flags and a vintage wood crate.

PARTY FAVORS: Handmade S'more and mini-garden kits were wrapped in clear cellophane and tied with raffia and wood grain thank you cards.

PARTY GARLAND:  Garland was made with strips of fabric and thick twine. We placed these garlands throughout the space to pull in the primary colors at all levels.

SIGNATURE COCKTAIL AND SPIRITS:  What's a party without a signature cocktail? Served in small canning jars with striped straws and fresh blueberries and pomegranate seeds. Wine, champagne and sparkling water were also served.

So adorable baby shower party d├ęcor!! All this baby shower decoration stuff is quite easy to arrange and gives wonderful looks in tiny budget. My cousin wants to host baby shower party for a friend at one of domestic San Francisco venues. I’ll suggest this party theme to her!!
