twin girl baby shower

it always begins with the invites, and unfolds from there…

mommy-to-be (again)
black and white polka dot linens from my s.i.l. and runners from walmart ($1.50/yd!)

joy made this incredible cake. oh man! i forgot to take pics of the food – it was all amazing, super yummy! thanks so much, joy – you are always wonderful to pair up with!

water bottles wrapped in wrapping paper

french berry lemonade from trader joe’s

tissue paper covered eggs on top of pink easter grass and shredded newspaper nests

nests spray painted black with pink candy (strawberry whoppers – they were gross)

tin cans wrapped in wrapping paper and ribbon

each guest had a special posy pin

hydrangeas from trader joe’s. i always buy the plants (under $7) and can get 3+ blooms off of it, then replant it and have blooms later in the season. love it!

twigs with tissue paper cherry blossoms (from this shower) tucked in the chandelier to look like a nest
the giant cage decorated again

raspberry flavored bird soap – i couldn’t resist!

    I just LOVE this baby shower. My SIL is having twin girls, so I was just browsing. One question: What is that cute font you used on the invitations? I love how it looks and would also love to borrow some ideas from you!

    lindsey says:

    hi kate! the font i used on the invites is called vaguely repulsive. silly name! i know i got it free, but not sure from where?

  29. 29

    Love it, where did you get the black and white polka dot table cover?

  30. 30

    shawnalee – the polka dot cloth was actually just fabric used as a tablecloth. i borrowed them from my sister-in-law, and i believe she bought the fabric in the fabric district in l.a.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if
    you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have
    some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and
    I look forward to your new updates.
