This weekend I hosted a baby shower for my beautiful sister-in-law, Katrina. When we first started planning the shower Katrina asked if we could have the peanut butter and honey cupcakes that Emma made for my wedding shower (they are pretty amazing). I loved the idea and decided to use the honey theme for her baby shower! Katrina is expecting a daughter in September and we could not be more excited! Here are a few snapshots from her baby shower…
The invitations were illustrated by my pal Kelli Murray (you can order them in her Etsy shop). I'm in love with the little honey details.
The shower was held at my favorite local restaurant, Aviary Cafe and Creperie. They have the most delicious food ever.
Here's the cutest story of the day… My six year old nephew was told by my mother-in-law that he was going to stay home for the shower because "baby showers are only for girls". He was a little upset that our niece was invited and he wasn't. He disappeared into the other room and came back with his own hand drawn invitation to the baby shower. It was so cute that he got to come to the shower… and all our hearts melted!
Katrina had plenty of help opening her gifts… ha!
The kids loved filling their bags with candy. I'm pretty sure this was their favorite part…
The grownups took home honey favors. I made mason jars with vintage textile details on the lids and honey bears with feather bees.
It was a very fun sunday afternoon. I love Katrina so much. I will never forget at my bachelorette party she told me about her baby fever and then the day we found out the good news! It's so special to see our family growing and it was wonderful to celebrate together. XO. elsie
This is so beautiful! My friends daughters name is Honey, this would have been a wonderful baby shower for her 🙂
I LOVE this little set up that you all have. My husband and I are about to open a store (with food and snacks) and I could so see something like this selling honey bears, sticks and local honey in it. I love how you make these little shabby table set ups and I remember Emma you had pictures of them on your old blog but I can not find that now..
Whoops, the above comment should have read, “Baby showers are for girls….” typo!
Baby showers of for girls only when the mommy of two little very active boys would like a little “grown-up” time to relax and visit with other adults.
But mommy relented at their disappointment at not going, and the boys were very good and it was all fine.
ahh! i love this theme! i’ve been keeping kelli in mind to do my invitations for a couple years now. hopefully i won’t have to wait too much longer!
As sweet as honey.
It is so awesome when people do something original. I love every aspect of this theme.
All the best to the future mama :)!
looks gorgeous and so yummy, what a lovely shower.
I stumbled upon your blog after reading your DIY from TresChicMama and boy, am I glad I did! You have a beautiful site, and this is one of the coolest baby showers I have seen- hands-down. I love the entire concept.
Really well done! Looking forward to seeing more of your posts in the future!
what a sweet(no pun intended) looking party, Elsie. You’re sister-in-law is glowing and I love the story about your nephew. 🙂
Your blog is well-written and moving, in reading your article is good to enjoy happiness.This blog people have to like it.I am seriously reading this article, every word every word I was able to silence this a better theoretical knowledgereat! Thank you!
I’m wishing all the best to Katrina. Your honey themed shower is simple beautiful, Elsie.
If I could have had a shower for my second baby this winter, I would have wanted you to design it! My baby’s nursery theme is black and white (I made b/w polka dotted curtains myself) and I have my own handmade bib and burp cloth roses (https://www.etsy.com/listing/103578824/3-bib-and-burp-cloth-roses-create-your) on his shelf. They have little felt honey bees on honey sticks planted with them. Now all I need is to indulge in a delicious peanut butter honey cupcake 🙂
Love this idea! Especially the papa, mama, and baby bear bottles. Saw it on Pinterest and thought it was too cute! Themes showers are the best! And what better theme for summer than honey…
What a cute idea! I love it!!
All the shower details were so sweet! And the stationary… ABSOLUTELY adorable!
This is very sweet! I love all the photos, and the stories put a smile on my face!
This was the cutest and tastiest theme ever! I love love love honey, especially local ones (we have a local college that sells delicious honey) and honey sticks always remind me of childhood and sticky memories.
Looks great! Btw you’re sister-in-law is so pretty! 😀
