Sweet Lamb Baby Shower {Ideas}

Did you know I have another blog? I do! It’s my other blog that was actually my inspiration for starting THIS blog here. My original blog is The Sparkle Queen, and that’s where I started sharing my event and wedding design boards.

And you may be asking yourself, “why is she telling us this?”, and hang with me. I’m telling you because on The Sparkle Queen, I’ve have a series called “Etsy Treasury Tuesday” where I share some of beautiful items I find on Etsy in a curated treasury collection. And the other day, the theme was “Decorating a Lamb Nursery for a Baby Girl.” You can check out the post here.

I found SO MANY adorable and just flat out sweet lamb themed items; I just had to turn them into a baby shower inspiration board. I cannot remember the last time I said “Awwww” so many times in an hour!

So without further ado:

You’re Invited: Easter Peeps Birthday Party for Kids

Do you know any kids with birthdays near Easter?

I always wondered if the kids who had birthdays on or around Easter got the short end of the presents-stick, like the kids with Christmas birthdays. But then I got to thinking, the kids with birthdays on or around Easter and Halloween probably have it MADE.

Think about it. During that time, there is literally TONS of yummy candy lining every available store shelf. Those kids can have one heck of an awesome candy party!

That got me thinking about if MY birthday was near Easter, and I was a kid, what kind of party would I want to have? And I immediately thought “PEEPS PARTY”. Naturally I just had to make a party inspiration board for something that cute. Here’s what I came up with:

What Will It Bee? Baby Shower Ideas

Buzz! Buzz!

Are you a gardener at all? I am, on a very small scale, as there is only so much I can fit on my little apartment porch. But one thing I always make keep in my little garden is a few butterfly friendly plants. Right now they are in FULL bloom and absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been spotting butterflies, bees and lots of little critters near those plants. It’s quite an active little pot!

The other day I was out watering and noticed several of those plump, round, bumble bees. They were so busy zooming here and there, I doubt they even noticed me, but they were my inspiration for this week’s event idea and inspiration board.

This baby shower was inspired by the nature loving mommy to be, that is excited about her baby, but may not be ready to reveal the gender just yet. Yellow is great for gender neutral baby showers, is bright and cheery for spring, but is also different from the normal baby blue or pinks that most baby showers lean towards.

If the mommy to be wanted to announce the gender of the baby at the party, she easily could with this theme!
Let’s take a look shall we:

Love Is Sweet – A Cocktails and Sweets Engagement Party

Have you heard the phrase “Love Is Sweet” before? As the rise of themed candy bars grows, so does the popularity of that saying!

Do a quick search for “Love Is Sweet Take A Treat” and you will get MILLIONS of picture results with every color candy bar imaginable. Crazy isn’t it?

I thought: why not take that theme, and go a little bit further?

This week’s inspiration board was for a young, recently engaged couple who are fun loving and want to celebrate their engagement with their family and friends.  They want a relaxed and fun environment where everyone can mingle and chat. So what better way to do that then to have a cocktails and sweet party?

love is sweet cocktails and sweets engagement party ideas teal blue bronze unique pastiche events

Love Is Sweet – A Cocktails and Sweets Engagement Party

Everyone loves desserts and can’t resist a yummy drink. I went with a light blue, almost turquoise color, paired with a bronze for this idea board, but any color combo you choose would do.

A must have for this type of party is a signature drink, extra points if you can make it match one of your theme colors.

Another must is lots and LOTS of desserts. I tried to get a little of everything in, but the highlight of the evening will undoubtedly be the Ferrero Rocher inspired desserts.

If you REALLY wanted to run with this color scheme, you may want to take a trip to the thrift store. They often have odd mix and match glasses, and I bet you could probably pick up a few blue glasses for your guests to use. Don’t worry, they don’t all have to match, in fact, it’s almost better that way. Everyone will have their own unique glass, and they will help enhance the party’s décor! Win win!

The Beauty of Baby’s Breath at a Wedding

If the words “simple but elegant” describe your wedding aesthetic, then look no further then baby’s breath. This beautiful floral is just that. It can be incorporated into almost any facet of your wedding, is easy to work with, has a great price point, and more importantly: looks fantastic.

This week I decided to challenge myself to pick one flower type, and base an entire wedding around it. I wanted to choose something that I believe to be underused and underestimated. Baby’s breath fit the challenge!

Here is what I came up with for this challenge:

I don’t know what it was about it, but I was completely captured by the beautiful colors and the soft elegance it radiated. I knew I just had to create a wedding inspiration board where this bouquet would be at home.
