Oh, Bebe'

I will be hosting a baby shower for my sis-in-law, Jenny, on Nov 15th. I am so excited because I love throwing parties! I mentioned here before that I chose a french theme for the shower. Jenny is having a sweet baby girl to be named Caroline Rose. I am going with a black and white shower with baby pink accents. These baskets I bought at TJ Maxx were my inspiration for the whole thing. Aren't they pretty? Best of all, they were on sale. I bought both baskets for less than $25 total! I know!!!! I can't wait to fill them up with croissants and door prizes.

I was fishing around for some baby shower games and some of you gave me some good ideas. Stay tuned for the photos of the food and fanfare!

Here are photos of the invites I made. We have a lot of friends and family out of town that cannot attend, but me and my friend, Theresa, made 50 invites by hand. They turned out really sweet.

You probably can't see very well, but the little pink dots are pearlescent beads and they are so pretty in person. I was going for understated and elegant, I hope it didn't come off as too plain. What do you think?
