Green and Brown Polka Dot Baby Shower (23 photos)
We chose a celery green and chocolate brown color palette with polka dots and blue baby footprints throughout.
We framed the DIY invitations, which were made by the shower's host and event planner. A welcome banner attached to clustered paper lanterns hung from the main window in the venue. Chocolate pashmina scarves were used as table runners on the white cotton table clothes. Four tea light candles, each wrapped with a sheer brown polka dot ribbon, surrounded bubble vases filled with white hydrangeas on each table as the centerpiece. On the guest of honor table, place cards in the shape of various baby shapes were used for the guest of honor and her special guests. At each place setting were guest welcome packets which were sealed with a "Welcome Cameron" sticker. These plain white envelopes; which included 2 game sheets, a blank name sticker, pen and advice card, were painted with painbrush spouncers dipped in brown craft paint. On top of the welcome packets were brown like linen napkins tied with grosgrain ribbon that mimicked the packets. As they arrived, guests signed Cameron's custom name guest book that was beautifully designed by AJz Delights.
An awesome green punch, which matched the celery green color used throughout the shower, was the signature drin of the evening. A beautiful buffet of appetizers was served which included, among other things, crab salad, chicken salad sandwiches on croissants, mini quiche, shrimp cocktail and crab rangoons. The cake was a beautiful 2-tier cake, topped with a pair of fondant baby shoes, which matched the color scheme perfectly.
Each guest received a "Baby" goodie bags as favors. Everything in the goodie bags included the word baby in it: a pair of baby footprint sugar cookies, baby footprint lollipops, Sugar Babies candy, Baby Ruth candy bar, Cry Babies gumballs, and a custom CD with 19 songs that each included the word baby in the song title.
