sprinkle for lizzie + iver : recap





As you may remember I had very a specific style in mind for my baby shower. It was however my first one and I am however a control freak. I had a lovely hostess who teamed up with my mom and sister to put on my "sprinkle" but I couldn't help doing some decorating and getting involved. My third child is due any minute so at 34 weeks my friends and family gathered to celebrate him (first boy) at my "sprinkle". I had a great time and was so honored to be in the company of amazing women who I love and adore.

The theme if you want to call it that was "vintage toy" and I displayed some from my own collection. I had chosen the invites on Etsy with my hostess and she graciously found a local cake maker to bake us a red velvet cake with a buttercream top to match! The party favors were pocket mirrors also available and handmade on Etsy and I made marshmallow treat pops to act as centerpieces but also to send home with guests for themselves (and their kiddos) to enjoy! Color wise, the theme was red and blue and I carried that through by wearing the items from my Sprinkle Style collage. I wore my red patent clogs to stay comfortable and chic and of course coordinating.

My thank you notes (found at Target and LOVED them because they remind me of Par Avion stamps) are all out in the mail and I made return address labels on my own with coordinating fonts that I had used throughout the shower! My husband is responsible for the party favor gift tags which I printed myself. However he wrote the copy "Who's That Pretty Lady?" because he is witty and also because I was struggling with something catchy to say (for once) and I left my label design up on my laptop while I was taking trip 500 of the day to the loo. When I came back he had updated it with the cute saying which was perfect as the favor was a mirror.


Thanks SR for taking the photos! While I was busy stuffing my chubby cheeks, and opening many lovely goodies. Thanks again mom and zoƫ for putting together the eats, and I LOVE you Olivia for being the best hostess and putting up with my bossiness. Cannot wait till you are knocked up and I can return the favor! xo
