Finding out baby’s gender when the little one is born is said to be life’s biggest surprise. But for mom-to-be Julie, her surprise came when her friends surprised her with a baby shower! Having a girl for her second baby, Julie was not expecting a celebration from all her friends and planned by Kristine of Urban Magnolia. “The shower was made even more special with the surprise element. This shower had to be special and it was! I am forever grateful for all the people who attending and participating in the surprise shower for Julie.”
The ladybug theme was selected because Julie loves three things: dragonflies, frogs and ladybugs. Julie event registered for a ladybug theme for her new baby girl, Megan. Ladybugs were on the invite, cake, and the signs for the food.
Kristine kept the decor simple and pink. The welcome table was the centerpiece of the shower decor. Topped with pink and green baby blocks spelling out baby-girl-to-be Megan’s name, the day was all about the coming baby. “I saw the blocks and they added that personalized touch to the tablescape. The letter blocks arrived the day of the shower and I told Tonya with Pickled Pink Boutique.”
We’re really in love with that gorgeous rosette linen Kristine used for the welcome table. “Rosettes and ladybugs exist in nature together so why not indoors. I am so blessed with how the rosette linen and the ladybug theme came together, so that is where the cake comes into play. It is rosettes and ladybugs all over.”
The showstopper was the stunning ombre cake. In keeping with the theme and decor, it was created with beautiful rosettes cascading down it in lovely hues of pink. Cute fondant ladybugs were crawling on the layers. It looks so good, we’re not sure they actually ate it!
“Julie was so surprised about the shower that when she walked in that she had to walk in a different room to wipe tears from her eyes. This shower had everybody she knew at it from church friends to family. She loved being the center of attention and I am still getting emails about how much fun it was to surprise her.”
Thanks for sharing this beautiful surprise with us Kristine and congrats to Julie!
