Real Baby Shower: Little Man is on his Way

Monday, February 7, 2011

Melissa & Kellie from Icing Designs came up with this adorable blue, brown and champagne baby shower. I especially love the chocolate mustaches on the cupcakes. Perfect for this Super Original "Little Man" theme. And also a BONUS for the photos. I'm sure photographer Meredith Price would agree. Be sure to read her sweet description below -- I especially love the labor bracelet. What a wonderful idea and something that will be treasured forever. And... How lucky to find "little man" jammies -- that adds such a personal touch. Don't you think?

From Melissa & Kellie... This past weekend we had such an amazing time having a baby shower for one of my best friends, Tina! It was so much was a laid back, lazy Sunday afternoon dessert and coffee shower. It is really funny, but I do not have one girlfriend with a boy, so it was so much fun having a baby shower for a boy! Kellie came up with the idea of "A little man is on his way!" I loved it! We created all of the paper goods a couple of months ago and used them to compliment the shower. We used a smoky blue, champagne and chocolate brown color palette. We made, cupcakes with chocolate mustaches on top, chocolate covered marshmallows, chocolate licorice, brownie pops with shimmered chocolate jewels, scotcheroos, French macarons and mini cupcakes for the dessert table! We also made rosette lollipops for either side of the table, and hung a big champagne colored satin ribbon from the mirror above the table. And of course had a letter garland that read, "A Little Man Is On His Way".

We also set up a drink station with a “café” letter garland. We found the cutest "little man" jammies and hung them from a satin ribbon above the drink table. We served all different kinds of flavored hot coffees and teas and cold sodas and punch.

We also created blank note cards with the glittered “little man” illustration on them for all of the guests to leave Tina some sweet words of advice. Then all of the guests put a pearl onto a string and we created a labor bracelet for her. So that when she went into labor she could bring her bracelet with her to the hospital and know that we are all there with her supporting her and thinking of her! We got a special baby book and tucked all of her notes into it so she could read them whenever she wanted! 

We are also really excied to announce that we worked with a fabulous new photographer....which you will be hearing a lot more about! She is good friend of mine, Meredith Price of Bloom (Photography by Meredith Price). She did such a great job and we are so excited for her new business!!

Oh my goodness! Our etsy shop has a maternity t shirt transfer design that would have been perfect for someone to wear to this shower- even down to the colors! (The title of it is "A Gentleman"). Sad I missed the chance! But if you are ever in need of a shirt or diaper bag design for a mommy-to-be - please check out our maternity designs on
(PS - we should have a new girl gender design on there in a couple of days...)

Everything is so cute! I'm curious, what does your labor bracelet sign say?
