PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jen

“Under the Sea” Baby Shower. We kept it gender neutral as the mom-to-be did not find out before hand if baby was a boy or a girl. The baby shower was hosted at the home of a family that that the mom-to-be babysat for while she was in grad school.


Hydrangeas picked from the homes’ gardens filled the vases, colorful linens/chairs/plates rented from Party Corner, onesies hanging on clothesline from weddingchicks and etsy shop, TheJetty, and a framed whale print from Society 6.

Food and Drink:

Catered by D’Jeet? Catering, special homemade punch made for bottles, cake custom made by Cups & Cakes.


Custom for the event and created by Meghan Hopkins Sokorai of And Here We Are


Mini whale soaps, purchased on etsy from SoapFavor


“Dear Baby” cards for guests to fill out, BINGO, Celebrity Baby Name Match Up

DIY Projects:

The glass bottles used for drinks were Starbucks Frappuccino bottles that were emptied and cleaned and new “Sweet baby Woolston” stickers were added. Tissue paper poofs, tissue paper garland,  & the games were also DIY.
