How many times have you met a mom at the playground and started a conversation, then walked away, thinking, I should have given her my phone number for a future play date? Here’s the solution: Mommy Calling Cards.
I want to have a ‘pear’ themed baby shower.” Talk about original! Green is such a great color for a shower, and it’s a great way to incorporate some femininity in a room full of women celebrating boys. Pear green is between lime green and a more mossy color green, making it a hue that works really well with a variety of complimentary colors including teal, yellow, pink, red and brown. After finding this beautiful table setting, we were off and running with ideas for a fruity affair for the perfect ‘pair’!
It’s not a ‘bee’ baby shower mosaic, it’s a ‘Mommy to Bee’ or ‘Baby to Bee’ baby shower mosaic! The yellow and black color combination at once suggests bumble bee, and it can be done easily and a chic way while keeping the fun in the day.
Going the extra mile to spruce up your tables can have a big visual impact at your baby shower. Using nontraditional patterns such as black and white damask will leave your guests in awe. Google defines damask as “A rich silk fabric woven with elaborate designs and figures, produced by complicated weaving, often of a variety of colors.” When you think of the swirly pattern, you may think Grandma’s boring kitchen table linens or ugly floral patterns…or just plain old…old! But think again, because damask is back! From the runway-ready clothing and accessories to the latest couture table settings, the Damask pattern has reinvented itself and is a fabulous way to accent tables…or anything for the matter in a unique and visually stimulating way! It says “elegant” “vintage” and “ultra-modern” simultaneously.
It all started with a juice stand, which prompted the inimitable Lilly Pulitzer to come up with a dress that would camouflage her fruit stains. The resulting sleeveless shift, with its colorful patterns was not only perfect, it was instantly the most charming item in her wardrobe. Everybody loved Lilly’s dresses. So much so, she stopped selling juice and started selling her dresses. Now, 50 years later, Lilly Pulitzer celebrates her Jubilee Year. And we applaud the adverturous sorts who assume the Palm Beach pedigree, no matter where they live. And, now there is stationery to go with a colorful life. Go throw a color soaked party on your behalf!<
