In our end of the school year madness (still mid-madness btw!) I forgot to share pictures of the baby shower I had at my house for my sweet friend a couple of weeks ago!
I didn’t do much to decorate – my friends and I decided to keep it simple, but I found this adorable banner on etsy that I loved so much and wanted to share with you all. I found them on-line at LaCreme Boutique – so many darling party banners! I’m sure I’ll use this all the time. In fact I’m using it again this weekend for my daughter’s birthday party.
I loved the colors in this one – teal, navy, grey, coral – basically the colors in my house. :) Oh and gold! You can’t tell in these pics, but the gold is glittered. Added some fun bling!
I doubled another triangle banner to make the fireplace festive!
The other banners were from Target – good ol’ dollar section! They were a bit small for the fireplace but they worked. I didn’t have time to make anything so they had to! :) I put some fun old pictures of my friend when she was a baby on them and around the fireplace.
Terrible lighting because it was night but here are a few pics from the evening…
It always makes me happy to have my house full of friends. :)
My beautiful guest of honor sitting in her striped throne! ;) She has three little boys and is having her fourth. And it’s a girl! Coming this Friday. :) Oh my word she got some darling clothes! Made me want another baby. Until I remembered I could hold and love my friend’s new baby girl all I wanted. And then sleep at night.
I really wished I could have taken better pics of a few things before the shower started, but there wasn’t time so again excuse the bad lighting! Which doesn’t show off these adorable flower arrangements a friend of mine made. Glittered mason jars. So simple and fun! They matched the gold in the triangle banners. Because it’s all about the details. :)
We just set them on the islands and tables with all of the food. The mason car cups with striped straws were darling too and I didn’t even get a picture of them. I’ll have to do better next time!
Such a fun night! Now we’re all counting down to get to hold that sweet baby girl.
It’s the little things.

HAVE YOU EVER MENTIONED WHERE YOU GOT THE WOODEN BREAD BOARDS BEHIND YOUR RANGE FROM?
Hi Andrea! They are from Pottery Barn. :) xo
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Erin, I just LOVE the little paper garlands you ordered from Etsy!! And the colors are perfect for your decor! Thank you for inserting the link – I will definitely be ordering some! How many did you order to decorate in your kitchen?
The baby shower looks like a huge success – such a great turnout for the pretty Momma!!
Thank you Jane! I ordered three total. There were two in the kitchen on the oven hood and then I doubled one for the fireplace mantel. So happy you like them! :) xo
I think what I love the most about this post, Erin, is seeing all the people in the beautiful spaces we always see! It brings so much life to the space, if that makes sense, I know we see the kids, but it’s as if I could feel the love being shared in the baby shower!!! I’m sure you’re a wonderful host and the space is perfect for entertaining!!
What a sweet thing to say Aria! Thank you so much. So kind of you. It really is so much fun having the house full of laughter and friends. :) xo
I love the untraditional color scheme. Unique and beautiful!
Thank you Samantha! xo
That looks like so much fun! I love that colorful banner.
There are so many blondes! :)
Erin, your blog post on helping your child sleep through the night is WONDERFUL! Just printing that up and delivering it with a ribbon and a bow would be gift enough!! And I have recommended it to many of the expectant mothers I know. Just wand to let you know!
Oh my word you are sweet! Thank you! I wrote that post ages ago but I definitely stand by it! It’s not the easy thing to do, but it worked great with my three. :) xo
I was wondering what type your counter tops in your kitchen are. I am putting Carrera marble in my bathroom but was looking for another option for countertops that are white. I absolutely love the Carrera throughout your house it’s stunning
Hi Jessica! My countertops are quartz – “Organic White” – Caesarstone. I love them. I love marble too, but I just knew that would have been way too high maintenance for my kitchen. Quartz is so great – looks good and you can’t hurt it! Carrara is perfect for bathrooms and backsplashes – lower traffic areas! Thanks for your sweet words about my house! xo
This is Vanessa from LaCremeBoutique…I just found your blog and LOVE it!! Loving these pictures from your baby shower, too. Would you mind if I shared one of these pictures of my garland in my shop and on IG? If not, I’d love to tag you :) Thanks!
Hi Vanessa! Oh my word – LOVED your garland! It was so perfect for the shower and I can’t wait to use it again! You can absolutely use my pic if you don’t mind tagging me! Thanks cutie! xo
Where did you get the sign above your range “Enjoy the small things” I LOVE it and want it! :) ha ha
Thanks Heather! It’s from a shop on Etsy called “House of Belonging.” I love all of their signs! xo
