We choose our colours as navy, grey and white. I focused on decorations. A few easy details helped pull the theme together.
I used two recycled tin cans and wrapped thick twine around to make vases. Seashells, a white seagull and white flowers from our gardens put the final touches on the decor. I even found an anchor cookie cutter at a local cake decorating store. Each guest was able to take an anchor sugar cookie home with them.
We had a few activities for the guests to participate in. The guests were asked to sign a baby book, 'Oh the Places You Will Go" as the guest book. A keepsake for sure. Newborn diapers were set out and each guests was asked to write a message to the new parents for those exhausting late night diaper changes. Hopefully it will bring a smile to their faces at 3am in the morning. Lastly, we had the guests write down their favourite baby items they received/use or have given to a new mother. This list of items will hopefully be helpful as they stock up on all their baby items.
Overall, it was a nice afternoon showering the mommy to be and her baby boy. It's only a matter of weeks will we get to meet him.
