Pretty in Pink

I recently hosted a baby shower for my niece who will soon have a baby girl. It was fun putting together a pink party.

Instead of a traditional tablecloth, I used 4 yards of pink minky cloth and tied white bows to the corners. The fabric will be used later in the baby’s nursery.

The centerpiece consisted of fresh flowers, mostly pink and white roses, with the umbrella hanging from the chandelier.I had to explain to some of my family members that the umbrella was for the “shower” and the crystals were “rain drops.”

I fixed one of my niece’s favorite treats, peanut butter Ritz crackers dipped in candy coating. This time I used pink candy melts instead of the usual chocolate.

I was able to find some little “it’s a girl” picks for the mini cupcakes. The pink icing was called Pink Lemonade.

We had pink lemonade for our beverage.

For the door decoration, I put a few small soft toys on a grapevine wreath and added some rosettes made from baby socks. I also added pacifiers to the ends of the tulle bow.

My pink Knock Out tree roses did have a few blooms for additional color at the entry.

We are ready to for the arrival of baby Hannah. We are praying for her health and for an easy delivery in a couple of weeks!
