Little Men

Back in July my sister and I threw a baby shower for my cousin's.
Both are having little boys, two weeks apart from each other. 
Since I wasn't sure at the time if I would still be living here,
we thought we would host a small family only baby shower.
And let's be honest, I was itching to throw a party. 

We went with a little men themed shower. 
It was a nice afternoon to spend with family, although it was a little harder on me than I anticipated.
We were on a fairly tight budget. So everything you see, we already had.
I think we spent $6 total on decor.

 The table decor

For lunch we served a salad bar so everyone could have exactly what they wanted.
We also had fruit skewers and olives & cheese skewers and a black bean/corn/avocado salad.
I have to say, this turned out really well.
I wish there were pictures of it. 

 These are our bowtie cupcakes. 
Don't look to closely at the's pretty terrible looking. 
I should never attempt to frost cupcakes. 

The loot...however the pram belongs to me!

Each mama got a basket filled with goodies...
Swaddle blankets gift set, burp cloths, onesies and pants, hooded towels, Desitin,a travel wipes case,
and I made them each a car seat swaddle blanket.
We also got each of them a diaper bag, but there are no pictures. 

Overall I think it was a great day and I was pretty happy with how it turned out, 
especially considering our tight budget!!


  1. Super cute! The table decor was gorgeous!

  3. I love the baby carrage. Seriously we need to go into a party planning business. you are way to creative.
