Personalize the Party

I love showers and intimate parties. Baby showers, bridal showers, stock the bar parties, all of it. I think it’s so much fun to celebrate life’s greatest moments with the people closet to you. One of the most fun parts about hosting these soirees is getting to personalize it!
One of our good friends threw us a baby shower when we were pregnant with Roman and got us these awesome carved books that spell out his name. She used them as decorations for the shower and then sent them home with us and now they sit on a shelf in his room! So naturally when my husband and I hosted a shower for some great friends of ours who are having a baby, I had to do something fun. I made these cute little M wrapped in yarn that matches her nursery decor.

We were given these awesome carved books after a baby shower for Roman.

We made this yarn "M" to display at a baby shower for friends of ours. It sat on the food table and then we sent it home with them.

You can find so many ways to personalize that don’t include monograms (my personal favorite), but my biggest piece of advice is make it something they can take home and use. If you need help coming up with ideas, you know how to reach me!
