about a month ago, my friend Joy and i hosted a baby shower for a friend of ours who was having her first baby girl after 2 boys. both joy and i were were the throws of summer, so we wanted to go simple, but still sweet and special. joy came up with the theme of strawberries (perfect for a baby girl in the summer!) and i ran with it from there.
like i said, we kept it simple, using mostly items we had around the house. i have a small collection of vintage table cloths that i spread out randomly all over the looong table. notice i didn’t even iron the table cloths? i’m
lazy crazy like that. i also had this huge strawberry cookie jar that i’ve had for years – perfect! a handful of joy’s polka dotted glasses were filled with iceberg roses cut from my garden.
i had tassels left over from the spring stitch market and joy had some from her daughter’s birthday party earlier that week, so i made a few more and we strung them all over. i’ll be sharing a tutorial on these simple (and weather resistant) tassels soon!
joy did easy snacky foods since this was an evening shower.
between my collections and joy’s we had some fun red and jadeite pieces to pull it all together!
i love planning big elaborate parties, but i also love a simple one that comes together smoothly, don’t you?
