Made ~ Pink & Brown Baby Shower

My friend Brandi is expecting her second child and first girl, Brooklynn.  Another friend of Brandi's, Jessi, and I threw Brandi a baby shower a couple of Saturdays ago.  Brandi had chosen brown, magenta and white for her baby girl-to-be's nursery so that was the color palette for the shower.  I created floral arrangements from supplies I found at Dollar Tree.  The pale pink foam roses were the focus of the arrangements.  They were accompanied by white berries in a low glass vase.  I wrapped each vase with wide chocolate brown velvet ribbon I found at Hobby Lobby.  I LOVE how they turned out!

I also created some tissue poms in brown, magenta and pale pink to hang in the living room and over the buffet.  They were easy, peasy to make.  Brandi plans to hang the poms in her baby girl's room. What a compliment!

For food, we had petit fours and cupcakes frosted to match the color palette.  We had a great chicken wing dip that Jessi made.  Yum-e!  For beverages, we had pink lemonade, Cherry 7-Up and bottled water (the bottles were wrapped with pink and brown paper to coordinate).

From the smile on Brandi's face, I would say the shower was a success!


  1. Wow! Party planning must be in your future. It turned out fab!

  2. Cute shower!! I've been wanting to make some tissue poms...I guess I should try...especially if they were easy, peasy to make!!! ; ) I thought 2 or 3 hanging from a corner ceiling in Kara's room might be fun.
