A friend of mine recently had a sweet, sweet baby girl. Baby girl is kiddo number two for her, joining her big brother. Back in 2011, when she was pregnant with her first, I had a shower scheduled, but her son had his own idea and came the day before the shower. This time around, we scheduled enough in advance so the chances were better that baby girl would stay put.
This family is a cross-Pacific one, as mom is from the US and dad is from Australia. So mom has tried to make sure that some of both countries are always represented. This time, it’s koalas. I took that nursery theme and ran with it, bringing in cherry blossoms to soften it up a bit.
And I have to say that throwing parties is probably one of my favorite things to do, especially now that I have Two Little Birds Design – I enjoy the challenge of new themes and decor ideas.
For other decorations, I made a couple of banners (“Welcome baby” and “Sweet Girl”), some cupcake toppers, and re-used decorations from Tori’s first birthday party to add some interest to the corner:
I decided on nail polish as favors, so I designed a thank you tag and tied them to the nail polishes.
And see those cherry blossom stems? On clearance at Ikea!
We all had a great time and mom-of-two-to-be was spoiled, just like she needed to be! And now, she’s snuggling this sweet little girl:
