Bow Tie Baby Shower

My best friend Angie and her husband Alex are expecting the arrival of their first baby boy (they have three wonderful girls) any day now.  A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of hosting a baby shower in their honor!  I definitely wanted a cute boy theme, but I was more interested in using Angie's favorite color, red.  Well I decided on a bow tie theme and used baby blue, red and lots of bow ties. 

My friend and co-host Veronica had the brilliant idea of using a kite in the decor!  This made perfect sense, not only because kites make me think of little boys, but because we would also be able to use bow ties on the kite tail!  I do not sew, but hand me fabric, an iron, wood dowels and a glue gun and I can make you a kite (I can even throw in a few fluffy clouds). Just don't expect it to fly!

We had tons of fun games for the guests to play, thanks to Veronica, and a photo booth with props which everyone tried at least once!

Angie and Alex loved their baby shower and I actually managed to keep all the details a secret until the day of.  We all had a really great time and we can't wait to meet baby AJ!

Hi Quaintly,

The decorations are amazing! I love the backdrop of the sky with the cloud, where did you get it from?

Hi Sueh,

The bacckdrop is from Joanns, it's bulletin paper from the school supply area. The clouds I made myself out of felt and pillow stuffing!

Happy Party Planning,
