Baby Shower Idea: Sugar & Spice Inspiration Board

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

Brainstorming themes and party ideas are often the hardest part about throwing a party! Thankfully, Candice and her talented team from The Finishing Touch has graciously offered to provide a shower theme and inspiration board once a month, for the next three months. Yeah. This Sugar & Spice board is beautiful and so perfectly cheery. (Just the right pop of color to cure us from the winter time blahs) And the copy below... La La Love it.  Love the favors. Love the music. Love it all. Thanks ladies -- can't wait to see what you come up for February.

From The Finishing Touch... The key to theme showers is to not have them appear too "themed". Keep the look elegant and just add a touch of whimsy. Create an environment that is inspired by the theme and not overpowered by it. A great way to come up with a theme is to look towards the mother-to-be's interests and hobbies. For a foodie or gourmet cook mom-to-be who is having a girl, consider a Sugar and Spice shower.

For a Sugar and Spice shower, we envision a bold color combination of Honeysuckle, Ginger, and Blush Pink. Top tables with silky, brightly colored linens. Centerpieces can be made from glass cylinders filled with colored sugars or colorful spices topped with bright colored flowers.

For favors, tie together with sheer orange ribbon two glass vials filled with hot pink sugar and exotic Himalayan pink sugar or pink peppercorns with a card that has recipes to use both - or give out sweet and spicy lip balms in flavors like Gingersnap or Chai Tea. Serve a buffet of mini spicy and sweet bites

Have a chocolate and spice tasting - have guests sample rich dark chocolates paired with exotic spices like sweet Indian curry powder and Mexican ancho.

Create a sweet and spicy mocktail and serve with a rock candy stick.

You can also play songs like Sugar, Sugar by The Archies and Cinnamon Girl by Neil Young.
