Last Saturday was my sister’s baby shower. She is keeping the gender a secret (she doesn’t even know!) so I had to come up with a fun, gender-neutral shower. Jennie has been drinking San Pellegrinos pretty consistently throughout her pregnancy, so not only did we base her nursery on the drink, I decided on a cupcake and SanPellegrino Brunch for her shower. The colors – coral, yellow, light blue- were really fun to use, and I used a watercolor theme on her invitations as well as the banner.
One of my favorite things about the shower, although I didn’t get a good picture of it, was the nursery tree. Because the baby is a surprise, people couldn’t buy girly or boyish things. So instead of bringing presents, people could bring money and clip it to a tag explaining what it was for (a pillow, curtains, etc). The tags were hung from the “nursery tree” by the presents.
After years of being away during Jennie’s pregnancies, I was so blessed to be able to throw a party for her. It was a perfect day full of celebrating Jennie and her baby.
