When it was discovered that Emily Hewett from A Well Dressed Home was expecting twins AND that she was having a boy and girl, her friends put together an extra special for her shower. Jennifer at Memento Designs had the privilege of designing all of the paper goods, and held the shower at her home. “It truly was a fun day filled with beautiful details and lovely people.”
When we asked Emily what her favorite details of the day were, she replied: “My favorite details were the mercury glass hours glasses which were turned sideways to look like rattles as well as the food…they served several items which I craved throughout my pregnancy such as salads from my favorite restaurants, etc.”
But all baby showers start with invitations, and this is where Jennifer really shines. She wanted the invitation to really set the stage for the “Perfect Pair” theme, which was inspired by the lil’ twins themselves. A palette of dusty pink, grey and turquoise and the modern houndstooth pattern continued through to the signage and other paper goods
for the event.”
The invitation was boxed and wrapped with a turquoise ribbon and two tags.
Each invitation was lined with grey striped tissue paper and included a pair of houndstooth baby booties!
Yep, over 75 baby paper booties! They were made in grey with brown buttons for the boy and pale pink with a pink bow and button for the lil’ girl.
Corresponding wrap around address labels to match. Super chic.
The main table was filled with all sorts of pretties- the invitation, pairs of baby booties of course, oversized tissue paper flowers and mercury glassware of all shapes and sizes.
Mercury glass hourglasses from LaurieAnna’s Vintage Home were the perfect touch. When Jennifer added a ribbon and turned them on their side, they looked like rattles!
Pretty candy for guests of course!
To go candy bags with houndstooth tags matching the invitations. Pink and grey striped straws were used for the lemon water and peach sangria which were served in small mason jars!
Vintage porcelain baby booties decorated the tables throughout and brought the theme to life.
Fruit cups galore! The galvanized tray from LaurieAnna’s was the perfect serving piece for these yummies. The flowers arrangements consisted of blush roses, blue hydrangeas, cream roses and grey dusty miller leaves.
The cake was made by The Cake Stand in Mckinney, Texas. They did amazing job of creating a design to match the invitation.
The food served was an assortment of Emily’s most craved bits and bites during her pregnancy.
Jennifer asked guests to bring a children’s book instead of a card to the shower. Such a cute idea!!
Wishing trees tags filled with words of wisdom and well wishes for the new parents. A great keepsake for the baby book.
Thanks so much for sharing with us Jennifer and Emily!
