Bow-Tie Baby Shower

This past weekend I was down in Houston to help throw an adorable bow tie baby shower for little baby Pierson.

First of all, Pierson's mommy Ashley is ADORABLE! She looks to cute preggo and her little belly is  so stinkin' cute. This mommy rocked this blue dress that she rented from MineforNine. I was so intrigued by this and really wish I would have known about this during my first pregnancy...when I was buying dresses for showers and events that I have now have zero desire to wear again! I thought I was doing good by getting non-maternity stuff...but trust me...you don't want to wear anything you wore when you were pregnant once you aren't. Loved finding out about this site so I thought I'd share!
Anyhow, I digress, back to Ashley...

So cute! I believe she is almost 28 weeks here!
So to back up a little bit, there were seven of us hosting the shower and we basically planned everything over email. I honestly don't remember how we came up with the bow-tie theme but the invitations that Jessica found on Etsy were adorable! We used orange and blue for the shower colors because those were the colors that Ashley was going to use for the nursery...however now she is replacing orange with gray.  Here is the invitation we used...of course we did it in orange and blue and it was ADORABLE!
On to the shower details...first of all I must admit, I wasn't on my A-game with pictures...in fact I missed the entire food table. I know...so we will start with candy. 

We did a candy bar because Ashley is the one girl we all know who LOVES her candy!  


This adorable bow-tie garland that Jessica made hung over the candy bar perfectly!
MK made these adorable decorations! How cute is the diaper cake and wreath?

Guests had a lot of work to do at the shower! All for a good reason of course! We had them sign a children's book for baby Pierson, fill out a Wishes for Baby AND a Hello Baby printout. I thought they were so cute and so fun to read together with her husband...and with little Pierson one day!

I made these little printouts (inspiration from Pinterest) and would love to share them with anyone but don't know how to make a downloadable link on my site. So just email me if you are interested. 


We served water, iced tea and a sorbet punch

Sadly this is the only shot we got of the food table...I promise it looked really good. The shower was at 2pm so we didn't serve a ton of food - we had tea sandwiches, a bow-tie pasta salad, and a fruit salad. For sweets we had monogramed petit fours, cake pops and adorable cookies! (Ugh I am really kicking myself right now that I didn't get pictures of this stuff!!) Everything turned out super cute and we all had a great time putting it together. 


And here are all the hostesses with the mommy-to-be!

 So now for a few party pics....
Ashley is due August 28th and I am due September 15th! Excited for our little ones to play together!

My little man joined us as the shower was winding down...and he found his way right to the candy table. He is addicted to jelly beans. 

Caroline and Ryan were having a "Jelly bean Picnic"

What cuties!

July, August, and September babies! (Can you match the mommy to the month?)


 All the preggo ladies! 

So much fun - and I can't wait to meet baby Pierson!

Baby Wishes

  30. Hello Michelle! I'd also appreciate a copy of the pdfs you used for the wishes and hello baby! My email address is mrs.s.hess at gmail dot com.

    [Also, since you are still getting requests for the pdfs you may benefit from uploading them to your google drive and then sharing the link to them on here. If you adjust the sharing settings on the document (once it's uploaded to google drive) to "Anyone with a link" then you won't have to respond to so many of us with email requests. :) Just a thought!]

  31. Hi Michele,
    I noticed that you've linked your "Hello Baby" and "Wishes" documents to your blog but they are a different color than the originals that you used and posted on pinterest. Is there a way that I can get them with the original orange and blue colors?
    I don't have a google+ account nor am I a blogger so it's not letting me use the "notify" feature when you reply so here's my email just in case!

  32. Hi Michele,
