Eucalyptus Spring Time Baby Shower

Today I had the pleasure of throwing of a baby shower for Alex’s cousin, Brianna…. who I actually claim as my own cousin.

She is due with her 2nd (first girl) in July so I wanted to make this shower intimate and “dainty”.

I got my invitation from Invited by Audriana and it gave me tons of inspiration for the theme of the party. She has the most beautiful invitations to choose from!

I ended up using a lot of eucalyptus with wood, glass, and gold accents.

I went with a brunch style shower because the menu is fairly inexpensive and so easy to put together with little prep time. A special thanks to my mother in law and Auntie for helping with drinks and a few things on the menu. We had a bagel bar, yogurt, egg casserole, and fruit & fruit dip.

The drink table and dessert table were set up outside.

We had coffee, tea, juice, and mimosas (for those of us who are not pregnant ;)). I replaced the “cake” with a doughnut cake which came out so cute!

My sister made the prettiest “Happy Pushing” cake topper and helped with so many other special details!

They picked the name “Makenna Jolene” and I knew that I wanted to display this as the main focal point because it is SO CUTE!!!!

I got the beautiful name sign from My Signature Timber

Thank you everyone who came to celebrate Brianna and sweet little Makenna. We cannot wait to meet her!
