Not going to lie, this post is to show off my mom’s skills and hard work.
She surprised me with a baby shower a few weeks before I was due with our third baby. She was way too excited about having a grand daughter that she went all out for this shower.
The theme was “Vintage Baby Girl”.
My mom is old-school. She hand-makes EVERYTHING including making homemade food and desserts. No catering here people. Oh and did I mention that her parties are never under 100 people?!
Yeah, she’s nuts!
She doesn’t have a fancy die cutter machine or stencils so she drew baby clothes on scrapbook paper and cut out these cute little baby clothes for the centerpieces.
Guests were welcomed with a hanging baby clothes line. She thinks of EVERYTHING!
She even set up a little sit-down photo booth for guests to interact and have fun.
Every details was filled with love. My sister told me she spent months crafting and planning every detail.
Every vintage party needs a suitcase right?!
How about a real set of vintage books and an antique dial phone?
Here are a few of the other decorations throughout:
How cute is this pearls baby rattle?!
She even decorated a bird cage for gift cards.
For the menu:
We had tuna salad and chicken en adobo rolls with walnut cranberry spinach salad.
To drink, she made pink lemonade and pink horchata water.
Now let’s talk sweets!
There’s no such thing as “just cake” at my mom’s events. Although she is famous for her cakes, she always has about ten other options haha.
We also had cupcakes, mints,
sweet rice balls with white chocolate ganache and toasted coconut,
more marshmallow pops for favors,
jelly bean filled baby bottles,
rattle sugar cookies (she’s amazing with her self-taught cookie skills),
and a salt water taffy tree.
The dessert table looked so darling with all that lace and pale pink.
We received so many beautiful gifts from friends and family. Our baby girl is loved so much already!
Kyle and I felt very humbled and grateful for everyone’s generosity and especially for my mom’s love. My dad and sister were a huge help too and we truly appreciate their hard work.
My mom is such an amazing and talented woman. I hope to one day be just half as wonderful as she is.
Here’s to a great woman, my mom who is now going to have a little grand daughter to pass on her awesomeness too 🙂
