Real Baby Shower: Red & Blue Spring Shower


Friday, July 8, 2011


It's so flattering to hear about people being inspired by Bump Smitten. I ABSOLUTELY love love love it! So, when Meriah of Mozingo Photography sent me these photos along with such a sweet note, saying "I must have looked at your website like 50 times. I was kind of hooked really," I just had to feature her baby shower. I would also add that Meriah is a fabulous photographer and captured some amazing moments! Very heartfelt.

From Meriah... My best friend Meredith is having a baby. Her first. I have been friends with Meredith for 19 years now and I have say that I am tripping out that she is having a baby! I simply can’t believe it. It seems like only yesterday that we were teenagers together dreaming of our weddings and families. Now it is here.

Meredith is now living in Oklahoma. She was recently in town and some of her friends and family threw Meredith and her husband, Ben, a baby shower. (Even though Ben was not able to be there.)

Meredith’s mom and sister-in-law, Sam, threw the shower at the house of Meredith’s brother, Jarred. They put me in charge of the decorating and, of course, the pictures. I was inspired by my friends at Studio Wed and a blog called Bump Smitten. I decided to go with a “Spring” theme and chose the colors of cherry red and baby blue.

I had a lot of help in getting together all of the decor! A special thanks to my mom for her help in planning and also for making the amazing blue punch! Thanks to Lori Brown for the punch recipe. Thanks to Robin and Meredith and Sam for helping me set up, plan, put up the decor, and clean up. Thanks to Nicole Riley of Studio Wed for allowing me to borrow the champagne glasses and the vases. Thanks to Jennifer and Kevin Minish for the blocks of wood for the center pieces. Thanks to the McBride kids for helping me paint the birdhouses. Thanks to Kathy Berlin for the amazing cake! Thanks to Whitney Sellers for the paper flowers. Thanks to Sam Brackett for putting up the rain drops (because it took a crazy long time!) And last but not least, thanks to Jarred Brackett for letting me invade his house, for being a wonderful host, and for helping take pictures.

Here are some of my favorite moments and decorations from Meredith’s shower.

Beautiful decorations, the baby shower looks so pretty.

How did you make the clouds and rain drops? Is it tissue paper?

Thanks for sharing

From Meriah...

Yes, the clouds are tissue paper. The mother to be actually made them. She insisted on helping out and contributing to the effort. I can't tell you how exactly she made them.

I did the rain drops. I bought a thick blue card stock with glitter from a local craft store. I then cut out hearts, folded them in half and glued them on fishing line I bored from my husband.

:) I actually got the rain drop idea and the cloud idea from this website! The shower is totally inspired by bump smitten.com!
