Hot Pink and Grey Winter Snowflake Themed Baby Shower

One of the greatest parts of having a lifelong friend is celebrating milestones in life with them.  Lindsey met her best friend Kristen when they were six years old. They have seen each other through switching schools, bad boyfriends, deadlines, tennis team losses, college rivalries, marriages, new houses and now, finally, pregnancy.  I” could not be more excited for Kristen to bring her baby girl into the world and that baby, the first girl born to our group of friends, is bound to be spoiled by her elective aunties.”  To get her started off on the right pink-baby-bootied foot, Lindsey hosted a small luncheon shower for Kristen featuring pink and grey ornaments.

“Kristen is this mix of sweet and sophisticated, classic and modern.  She is not the sort of Mama-to-be who would appreciate cartoonish or cheesy shower decor–no diaper pins or letter blocks spelling “BABY” around here.  I went with blush pink and fuchsia for girliness and gray and silver for sophistication then brought in a few snowflake and Christmas elements as a nod to the winter season without going all Christmas-y.”

Lindsey’s very favorite part of the decor was the pink and silver ornament chandelier.  Ornaments on ribbons are traditional for Christmas decor but with the bows, different shades of pink ornaments, ribbon and the slight sparkle from the glittery snowflakes, this one was not only beautiful but reminiscent of a baby’s mobile and was big enough to help transform the room.

Snowflakes made appearances as napkin rings and Lindsey even used china with a beautiful snowflake pattern in the center. The place settings were made using a tablecloth , glassware, flatware, and snowflake plates. Lindsey already had and new fuchsia napkins from Crate and Barrel which coordinated perfectly.  Beaded snowflake ornaments did double duty as napkin rings and favors.

With all this ribbon and silvery sparkly ornaments around, Lindsey was able to make chair decor by simply looping ornaments strung on fat fuchsia ribbon around her dining room chairs. “The centerpiece couldn’t have been easier and was made with stuff I had on hand plus some affordable grocery store carnations that look lush en masse and monochromatic.  White tray (Lowes) lined with pink craft paper (Michaels), sprinkled with cardstock snowflakes from a punch (Martha Stewart) and topped with two rectangular vases (Michaels) strapped together with ribbon and a glittery snowflake ornament (Michaels) on each side.
