An Eric Carle Baby Shower
Swell Parties: Gender Neutral Baby Shower with Eric Carle
Truth be told, I hosted this Eric Carle themed baby shower for a dear friend at the end of last year. I'm not busy at all so of course it took "a few" months to share some photos. Since the baby's gender would not be announced until birth and would be a big surprise (yay!), the nursery theme was the mom's favorite, all things Eric Carle. As a school teacher, this just fit perfectly. It also happened to fit perfectly with the wide array of adorable teethers, books and baby toys being hawked at Marshalls. Lucky me!
I am getting way more efficient at hosting showers even with the two little people in my life keeping me on my toes. Simple menus, planning months in advance so I can buy things as I see them on sale and prevent last minute cramming for the right look, and having the housecleaning ladies from Green Queen come AFTER the shower are a few lessons learned from years of throwing parties.
Enjoy some photos from our festive event. Cake from Henri's Bakery in Sandy Springs, GA. Rubber ducky from Amazon. Stolen decor from another shower the mom-to-be brought back (again, lucky me --- I am not so crafty). Food from the one and only Kroger. And adorable company consisted of her school teacher friends of all ages and stages...they were a hoot.
In case you were wondering, Eric Carle has written a lot of books. Over 40 in fact!
You know every baby has to have one of our personalized Forever Blankets...even if they don't have a name yet and we don't know their gender. The beautiful thing about our navy Millie Forever Blanket gingham check pattern and red embroidery.
By the way, I now know if Baby O is a boy or a girl...to be continued...in the nursery.
