Real Baby Shower: A Frilly Pancake Brunch


Monday, November 7, 2011


Happy Monday to me and all my Bump Smitten readers! Why??? Because Sarah Stewart Holland of Salt & Nectar sent me this SUPER CRAFTY baby shower she co-hosted with ONE amazing seamstress, her friend Elizabeth. And... it's FABULOUS! From the welcome wreath to the baby bibs and bloomers to the fun corsages, all these fabric goodies are very feminine and very girly. Inspired by this Pancake Brunch on Design Sponge, this soiree is one of the girliest showers I've seen yet!

From Sarah... This shower was for my dear friend Millie who is having her third child and first girl! I co-hosted with my fabulous friend (and master seamstress!) Elizabeth.

Naturally, we wanted the girliest shower known to man. We decided to do a pancake brunch—much like this fabulous pancake brunch featured on DesignSponge—and were also inspired by the awesome invitations we got from Sara at Less Ordinary Design.We wanted to use lots of frilly, feminine florals and lucky for us that seemed to be exactly what our local fabric store Hancocks of Paducah had on sale that week. We cleaned them out and used all the material to make matching cloth napkins, coordinating bibs and bloomers for decorations (all sewn by Elizabeth!), a wreath, and little fabric corsages for all the guests. We also made cinnamon chocolate scone mix in mason jars for favors and added the fabric to the top of the jars.

I love using the bibs and bloomers as decoration! Pancake parties are so much fun, and I love how girly this one is.
