Garden Baby Shower

Last weekend my mom and I hosted a baby shower for my sister.  She is having a boy, so I decided to use red and turquoise for the decorations. 

Everybody in blogland has such great ideas, and I grabbed a few ideas to use myself from a couple of different bloggers.

I started with the invitations.  My mom found the cute idea for these at The Pleated Poppy.

Next were these fun pinwheels from All the Small Things that I found via Little Miss Momma.  I love how they added a pop of color to the green background.

Also at Little Miss Momma, I saw that she had a large banner that matched our invitations perfectly, so I made one of those as well.

I made red velvet cupcakes with turquoise cream cheese frosting to display on my new cake stands.

My dad helped me hang lanterns from the trees.  It had been a while since I went tree climbing - both the trees and I had grown a bit.

I couldn't find a tablecloth that was the color of turquoise I wanted, so I bought a plain white one and painted on turquoise polka dots.  I used a red table runner that I already had.

The finishing touch was fresh red gerbera daisies placed in mismatched clear vases (from the thrift store of course) filled with turquoise water, and placed around the patio.

And don't forget the guest of honor!

A great big thank you to everyone that came!  We had a fabulous time, and Kait got many, many needed things for baby Tyce.

You went over the top for the shower - everything was absolutely perfect! I think it made everyone who was there feel extra special because of the care taken for every single detail. Good job Charlotte!
