Blue & Orange Baby Shower

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

I've decided to make January the month of parties!  I'll start with the most recent, a baby shower for my friend Alli who is expecting a boy in April!  The theme was blue and orange.  It was a lot of fun to throw, especially with help from my friends! 

 Here are the details:
The invitation, found here
Chocolate cup-cakes with peanut butter frosting, decorated with orange reeces pieces and topped with "It's a Boy" and ultrasound cup-cake toppers.  
I made the toppers but printing on paper and gluing the paper to appetizer pics (thick toothpicks)

Blue & White tissue paper puffs in the entryway

Christmas CD's and blue and Orange wrapped chocolates for favors (the shower was the week before Christmas)

Ultrasound photos on display for decor  
Baby banner made out of rosettes
I added blue and orange bulbs to my tree to tie it into the theme 
I found BABY goldfish crackers! They're baby themed and orange!
Blue and orange scrapbook paper rolled to make snack cones
The Food
Blue Christmas bulbs scattered on the table were fun & added color
Orange Izze and Champagne

My friend Lisa brought the "Guess the Baby Food" game
My friend Jena brought onezies to decorate with Jungle stamps,since the baby's nursery will be Jungle themed.
