Berrylicious Baby Shower

If I had to be honest and pick my ultimate dream job, I don't know whether it would be photographing beautiful food on beautiful dishes or planning baby showers/kid parties.  Not that my kids EVER get great parties, let's be honest here, but I'd do it as a dream job.  {I think my first two kids got a couple of rockin' parties, but after a while, they just become painful}

SO...Kadie and I have been working on a shower theme for my beautiful, ADORABLE sister-in-law and what could be more perfect right now than strawberries?!  {gasp!!!}  No pink rubber duckies or diaper pins here - we're going straight-up classy, sophisticated, and sweet! {oh, and no weird, miniature naked babies swimming in the punch, either...???...who does that?!}

Here's some of my inspiration so far!  The cute napkin below is something Kadie brought back from her vacay.  {she was gone so long I almost died}  It's the inspiration that spurred on this baby shower idea. 


...mmmmm....how beautiful is a basket of berries?!


The invites are almost done!  I took my file to Staples and had them printed - I TOTALLY pushed the easy button and it worked!!!  haha.  They look much better laser printed than on my home printer.


Yes, ladies, that is machine stitched.  AND...the name tag/jam jar stickers are from Wal-Mart!  ???  Who would have thought?!  They match my invites perfectly.  I'll  have to take back some of the horrible things I've said about Wal-Mart.

The best part?!  I went to one of many of our antique stores here and LOOK at the eye candy I found!  I'm in love with all of it - I haven't even put it away yet because I just want to look at it.  I have an illness, I know.

...mmmm....berries again.  I could never tire of them.  In a pink dish even?!  It's all so overwhelming.




SO - the planning will continue but here's a little taste of the fun so far.  I don't know what I'm more excited about - the baby shower or getting to snuggle a new little family member!!!  Ahh--life really is good.




**For my strawberry invitations, I used a digital scrapbooking mini kit called "Strawberry Patch" from Designer Digitals.

Everything looks so cute! If you haven't decided on a cake, I recommend the Pioneer Woman's Strawberry Shortcake Cake. I may have to go out and get some berries to make a cake for myself.

I love the strawberries! I was just at World Market yesterday drooling over the strawberry table linens and sweet pink strawberry marshmallows. What a great idea for a baby shower.
