A Peter Rabbit Baby Shower

So, something amazing happened last month.

My mom hosted 2 baby showers for me. They were Peter Rabbit themed. And incredible. And perfect. And I absolutely loved them.

How great does my mom look for being a grandma-to-be?!

And even though my mom was in charge, I may have taken over a couple of the details because I’m a control freak like that. #sorrymom

As guests came in, we had a Peter Rabbit book as the guest book with no-bleed sharpies (very important!).

We also had our first game – one of my faves- the Don’t Say Baby game. To jazz up the clothespins, I added these adorable baby bottle stickers by Jolee’s Boutique.

For the tables in the backyard, we did rounds with chiavari chairs (my fave!) and this BEAUTIFUL linen from La Tavola.

   

For the food, we went with a veggie inspired menu – Peter Rabbit was all about sneaking into the garden afterall.

We had little sandwiches (all pescatarian friendly!), assorted salads and a make-your-own-veggie-tray station with lots of vegetables, hummus and ranch.

For dessert, we had two cakes (two is better than one, amiright?) from my favorite bakery – SusieCakes in Newport Beach, CA! We ordered the luscious lemon and southern red velvet. Heaven.

We also ordered petit fours and delicious fruit tarts from Assal Pastry in Irvine, CA. SO incredible.

For the second shower, we had another red velvet, bunny-themed cake from SusieCakes. #addicted #imayhaveaproblem

But it’s adorable, right?!

Now onto my favorite part of baby showers – GAMES.

I wanted to try out a new game – Fruit of the Womb. Matching the fruit/vegetable that corresponds to each week in pregnancy..not easy, my friends!

The winner correctly guessed 8…8 out of 34 guesses. So definitely a tough one – but it’s gender neutral and all it requires is the gamecard (printable at the end of the post) and a pencil! Plus it’s kind of fun to torture your guests for 10 minutes..

The second game we played was Guess the Baby Food!

This is another torturous game (I mean, have you tasted the the green beans they make babies eat?!) – but again, so fun for me to watch people play.

For the baby shower favors, we gave my favorite little candles by Voluspa. They had the perfect light blue and white candles – and as a bonus, they smelled SO GOOD.

Parisian Bridal Shower

Let me tell you about one of the great loves of my life.

Bridal showers.

Bridal Shower Tent

I’m obsessed. Girly decor. Games. Dainty food. Present-opening. Sign me up for every bridal shower on earth.

This past weekend I was lucky enough to host my cousin’s Parisian Bridal Shower. #iwasinheaven

With each invitation, we asked guests to bring a special recipe to the bridal shower. Such an awesome way to get old family recipes and start a collection of yummy newlywed meals.

We had a birdcage for small envelopes and a recipe box on the gift table for guests to put their recipes in.

When guests walked in, they put on a pearl necklace and couldn’t say the groom’s name for the rest of the event.

For the first activity, guests wrote advice for the happy couple. The bride read each one out loud and gave a prize for the best advice card. (Printable at the end of post)

Advice for the Happy Couple

 

Our second game, my absolute FAVORITE game to plan for showers, was a Q and A game with the bride. We asked the groom 27 questions before the shower, covered up his answers and asked the bride those same questions. The guests then had to guess whether their answers matched or not.

Las Vegas Bachelorette


I was lucky enough to have one roommate throughout all 4 years of college.

That’s 4 years of tiny living quarters, all-night talks, getting dressed up for sorority events (#kappalove), disneyland trips and making the best memories ever.

So when this college roommate of mine got engaged..it was a big deal. And helping out with her Las Vegas bachelorette weekend was the most fun.

My favorite part? CLEAR ENVELOPES.

kims bachelorette

I am obsessed with sending invitations in clear envelopes. And I think you can see why. The theme of an event smacks you right in the face when you open your mailbox. #justhowilikeit

I know clear envelopes can be intimidating..extra cost? how do you address it? The key is to have an insert where you address/stamp it as normal. When I mailed these babies, I triple checked with the post office that the stamp amount/format was correct – so I do recommend that!

Pink and Teal bachelorette

My next favorite part of her bachelorette? The SCAVENGER HUNT.

It was the perfect bonding moment for all the girls and really made the most of what Vegas has to offer. (Customizable printables below!)
