High Fashion Paris Shower

A couple of weeks ago my smallgroup hosted our final baby shower for 2009 for the Elams. This was the first girl baby shower that I had done in a while, so it was a bit challenging to switch over to the pink mode, but it didn’t take long! The mommy-to-be has picked out an adorable (and I really mean super cute) nursery theme: Paris. Paris being the capital of fashion and femininity how could everything not be cute and pink?! So here are some pictures from the shower:

This was the nursery that I attempted to mimic for the shower décor

The bubbles hanging from the mantle in the gift opening area say “Sugar & Spice”

One of the women from the group found these amazing Paris themed clothes from Janie and Jack that we decided to give to the Elams, but not before we could use them as part of the décor.

There was a pink and black candy bar as favors for guests to take home.

The French themed cuisine was simply scrumptious (thanks Gina & Amy!) We had strawberries romanoff, chicken salad croissants, strawberry-vanilla cupcakes, quiche, crepes, maple scones, lovely cheeses, and delicious pink punch.

Amy made this French memo board to match the nursery for all the shower attendees to offer words of wisdom for the mommy-to-be.

As a shower activity and gift for the mom, everyone at the shower decorated a page with a letter. We had the alphabet book bound and given to the mom to help teach baby Elam the alphabet. This was the page decorating station (Thanks Morgan!).

Here are the hostesses with the mommy-to-be. We found it really funny that without even talking about it, everyone wore shades of pink and black. Congratulations Stephanie & Brandon!

I have a slight obsession with Paris so I obviously think this is adorable! Great job, I love all the details and pink and black. :)
