On Saturday, I had the honor of hosting a baby shower for one of my friends, Jen! When Jen told me she was pregnant, I knew I wanted to offer to throw a shower for her, but I was a bit nervous. I grew up with a mom that was a shower hostess extraordinaire, and I of course wanted to host a shower for Jen that was as beautiful as the ones my mom has thrown for others! Thankfully, Minted offered to partner with me and send me one of their awesome "Perfect Party" packages. I honestly cannot say enough good things about their party decor. Everything you see in the photos above was in the package, with the exception of the honeycomb tissue paper balls. The package even included paper plates, cups, and napkins, but since I absolutely adore my china, and don't use it enough, I decided to bring it out for the shower.
The package included little favor bags, and I sent guests home with little packages of homemade sugar cookies (thanks for the recipe, Courtney!). The last photo above is of little notecards included in the Minted package I picked out, and I had each guest write a note of encouragement or piece of advice for Jen, and then I sent Jen home with a mini photo album filled with all the notes. My favorite element of the package was the custom bunting banner, which I sent home with Jen, and she said she may even hang it in the baby's nursery! I loved all of the little details in the package, from confetti for the table, to striped paper straws, and I'll definitely use Minted party decor again in the future!
And on an even more exciting note, Jen had her baby last night, so congratulations to her and her husband Stuart, on the birth of their sweet baby girl!
Party decor was provided by Minted, but all opinions in this post are my own.
