This time last year, I was celebrating my upcoming tiny human, Giuliana, with a beautiful baby shower. I am so excited to share this with everyone. My Rustic Fall Baby Shower, was complete with burlap, sunflowers, and of course, pumpkin spiced cupcakes. Let’s take a look!
I wanted to have the feel of a farmhouse, or a barn. I was so disappointed when I couldn’t find a decent one to host the shower at, so we made it look like it instead!
My mom created beautiful centerpieces with mason jars full of sunflowers and babys breath.
The favors, that I wanted everyone to enjoy, were Mason Jars with babys breath. Each had a tea-dyed tag on it with a stamp from myself and Giuliana (even though she wasn’t here yet, I still wanted her to say thank you, hehe).
I needed a wishing tree…
My mom used an old scale that she had, and a basket attached with a sunflower arrangement, oh and my baby shoes to make the beautiful centerpiece for the food table.
We had such a beautiful warm, but Fall September day. The gifts brought by my wonderful family and friends, we placed in my old bassinet from when I was a baby. It was also covered in a blanket the my grandma crocheted for me.
Hopefully each guest got a little prize to take home with them. My dear friends were so creative in their gifts that they bought for the games.
Speaking of games, I not a fan of them, but I wanted people to participate in some way, and of course, go home with a present ( we all love gifts from showers, who doesn’t?) So, my sister came up with a great idea, I call it The Learning Book. My next post will be about how to create one of these fabulous books! Such an awesome idea, and Giuliana is learning from it everyday now!
I hope you enjoyed the details of my baby shower, and create a Rustic Fall Themed Baby Shower for yourself or someone soon!
