Planning only the most amazing baby shower ever...


So my best girlfriend in the whole wide world surprisingly found herself preggers last October and after 9 quick months (I can say that because I wasn't the pregnant one), her precious little girl "Miss" London arrived this past July. I had the honor of acting as her birthing partner/coach and you better believe I sweet talked that little girl out into this world. What an experience...but that's a story for another time!

It's only logical that since I cut the umbilical cord I should also be the one to throw her a fabulous "welcome to this world" celebration in the form of a baby shower.

I'm beyond excited and have a million party ideas. The theme is a pink and green candy shop full of lollipops, gum-balls, sweethearts, cotton candy, macaroons and cupcakes. Considering that my own sweet tooth is absolutely non-existent I think I'm being mighty creative!  
But of course because Mama is hosting this party there will be plenty of fruity sangria, sparkling pink champagne and boat-loads of spiked punch.

Here's what I've pulled together/plan on having so far...

Good Lord how cute is this stuff!? I can barely handle it. I'm so impressed by the creativity of these ladies...and myself -what what!

It's going to be challenging pulling it all together and I'll have to channel my inner Colin Cowie, Mindy Weiss and Martha Stewart - but I'm up for it.
I'm so excited to shower this sweet little girl with all the love, attention and gifts that she and her mommy deserve. It's not taking place till the last week of September but I'll be sure to update you with mountains of pics. 
Can't hardly wait y'all! 

So what else should I do to make this party special, throw me some more ideas girls!
What would you do to make a baby shower fun or original?

Love ALL of those pix. If I ever get remarried, I want you to be my party planner. ;)

And I've seen those puffy hanging balls at Michael's. I bought a pack before and they're a great size for inside and outside decorating.

Gorgeous inspiration photos...you could do a time capsule for the baby. Have each guest write their best 'life advice' that they put into a bottle and then the baby can open them on her 16th, 18th, etc. birthday. My sister did something similar for my 30th b-day, she decorated an old milk bottle she found with silver permanent marker. Mine was more of a favourite memory gift but still one of my favourite gifts of all time. I'm sure it will be beautiful!
