Hi, guys!!! Needless to say, I'm back from my mini-vacation. I had a ball, but there's no place like home- I missed you guys!!! Ok, ok, enough of the mushy-ness...I have a beautiful garden shower to get to...
Now would be an ideal time to have a garden-themed shower as summer isn't totally here yet; the mild weather is the perfect backdrop!
Colorful invites with pastel flowers is a great way to set the tone for this theme. Also consider using phrases such as "A baby is blooming" in the wording.
The table setting should be full of color. Consider grass-like place mats with colorful tableware for a unique twist. I also love the look of these Martha Stewart paper flower kits. Simple and elegant, they make for interesting conversation pieces! DIY flowered votive candles gives off a pleasant ambiance, and are easy to whip up with a few fresh flowers, tea light candles and a glass vase.
For the menu, go with grilled chicken breasts with an herb-dipping sauce, cream of watermelon soup and strawberry Bellini's. I also thought that the mini-garden cakes were absolutely adorable!
For favors, little seed packets are sweet memento's that are usable, however, I think they might be a bit too cute to open! There you have it! Enjoy!
