What a sweet honor it was to throw a baby shower for one of my best friends, Sheridan! She and her husband Jeremy were part of the young married community group Daniel and I hosted at our house years ago, and we were so excited when they told us she was pregnant. Much like my friends Les and Dara, the Burnses decided to wait to find out if Baby B was a boy or a girl, so I went with a gender neutral theme – honeybees!
The menu was brunch-themed, and I had a ton of hosts to help me get everything ready. We had mini chicken and waffles, cinnamon rolls, blueberry muffins, avocado toast, and bacon-wrapped tater tots, along with coffee and mimosas. Oh, and the deliciously pretty honeycomb cookies from Chasing India Cookies!
Hands down, my favorite decoration was the handmade honeycomb background for the food table. My brother-in-law Sam is so talented – he’s the one who made the famous mountain shelf that has been used over and over and over!
The rest of the decorations included a honeycomb ball garland, honey sticks as party favors, and lots of fresh flowers.
Looking for a fun baby shower activity? Pictured above is my all-time favorite: a DIY alphabet book. Print off pages with each letter of the alphabet and ask guests to create a page or two, and then compile all the pages into a book for the new parents.
Ugh, she was the cutest pregnant girl!! ♥
And guess what they had?? ↓↓
THIS cute girl!! Cheeks for dayyyyyz. I love you, Ruby! (And Sheridan I guess)
If you need help planning a party, let ya girl know – I’d love to get ice cream or coffee with you sometime and talk about your vision!
