Step right up, smitten readers. This next baby shower SCREAMS FUN! Don't you just love these bright and colorful decorations and sweets captured by the incredible Kelly Melissa Photography? I sure do. You just can't go wrong with a carnival-themed, gender neutral shower. And... on another note... isn't this baby photo guessing game such a darling idea? I adore the personal touch along with the hours upon hours of entertainment. Perrrrrfect!

From Kelly... I have a beautiful baby shower I shot, with lots of DIY elements.

Katy put her creative and personal touch on every element of her shower. She didn't know the sex of the baby before hand, so she chose to go with a carnival type theme. From the table cloths, to plates, candy and sweets bar, old fashioned soda....

In leu of regular gift cards Katy asked her guests to bring their favorite childhood book, to create a library for her new baby. Such a great idea! She got so many books!

Instead of traditional baby shower games, Katy asked each guest to bring a baby picture of themselves. Each guests hung their baby picture on a clothesline and every guest had to guess whose baby picture belonged to who. So much fun!

Katy did all of the floral arrangements herself. She had a baking party and baked and decorated the cupcakes... Everything was perfect!

Cute shower, the party looks great! I love all the food and the containers they are in.

What are the turquoise balls? Are they made out of tissue paper or where did you find them?

thanks for posting
