Little Lamb Baby Shower

 

A Little Lamb baby shower is a darling theme that can evoke a sense of charm and nostalgia for most anyone. If you can appreciate vintage finds and love modern entertaining, perhaps you will consider this for your next baby shower. This theme is ideal for an intimate brunch with friends and the Mommy to be. Following these few easy guidelines will guarantee you to stand out, as the hippest of hostesses.

  • Start with a great invitation. I love this one from Minted. Although the style appears traditional, the soft palette lends itself to feel very modern and best of all it defines a color palette for the event.
  • Follow the same color story in your tablescape. First an an elegant baby blue table cloth. Then use several baby blue vases in varying sizes and shapes, adding flowers in soft ivory hughes but remaining mindful of the size of flowers in accordance to the size of the vase. Large head flowers in larger vases, smaller flowers in bud vases but most importantly, use only one type of flower per vase. The rest of the table elements should remain monochromatic so use ivory china and napkins. Keeping the table simple and elegant will help in highlighting your vintage finds and guard your theme form looking too “kitschy”.
  • Now, for the vintage flair. Pick up a few cute little lamb planters from a flea market or antique store. They are often found in pastel colors and can be easily introduced into your tablescape and/or peppered around the party. Fill them with flowers and place them near a welcome sign, or perhaps grazing near the cupcakes or refreshments. They will definitely get noticed!
  • A personal touch- Add vintage charm with these place cards. Learn the how to here.
  • Really commit- To the sweet color scheme that is. Finish off with these darling cupcakes from Country Living.
  • Must not forget-The bubbly. This is after all, a celebration. There is something about pink Champagne garnished with cherries that scream a fabulous grown up little shindig, but maybe that is just me. Just be sure to have a non alcoholic and “Mommy to be” friendly option….a shirly temple would be most fitting!

Stick to the plan and you’ll make a fabulous Host!
