Parisian Baby Shower

  

On Sunday my girlfriends and I hosted an Oh La La Parisian themed baby shower for our dear friend who is expecting a baby girl next month. Doesn't she look fabulous?! Check out the shoes!
 
Invitations from Tiny Prints


  Rose wine and champagne, pink roses, and lots of Parisian pink and black accessories.




DIY bunting flag banner. I was so excited to find this Eiffel Tower fabric at my local craft store.

Ronda printed menus on coordinating paper and tied with a black satin ribbon. Meringue cookies for favors/place cards.

Rose Champagne and wine, French cheeses,  nuts, and toasted baguette to start.
 Chocolate cupcakes topped with vanilla frosting and a chocolate Eiffel Towers for dessert. I used this $2 mold to easily make these Eiffel Towers.


Our mommy of honor requested a book for baby and big brother instead of baby gifts. Such a great idea for a second baby.

We are a very close group of mommies and had so much fun celebrating together. We can't wait to meet this little girl.

  20. Hello,
    I visited your blog today. I thought it was so pretty, and I especially loved the Parisian Baby Shower. I live in California and have two girls too, but mine are grown. We just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your beautiful ideas. Jess and Nel went to Paris a couple of years ago, and loved everything about it. I thought your shower was so creative and the pink was darling. Have a sweet day.

  32. That was beautiful and bless her for being that pregnant and rocking those shoes. I am pretty sure all I could squeeze into were some some oversized flip flops.
