baby shower inspiration.

I'm throwing my sister-in-law a baby shower this month. I'm really excited! In all of my spare time, I've been thinking, sketching, and planning. I wanted to share some inspiration photos with you.

The first time I saw this color scheme, I fell in love. I knew I wanted to use it at the shower. I think it will match our theme very well.
The theme of our party is vintage paper doll. I'm thinking of having paper dolls or vintage dresses for baby girl strung on a clothes line. I want to incorporate a lot of other paper decor as well. 1//2

I can't decide between these two for favor packaging. I think that the scarf wrapped packages are so fun and playful. I also like the simplicity of the brown boxes, twine, and colorful flowers.

I have a couple of menu ideas right now. Aren't these mason jars are so cute with the ribbon tied around them? They would make any drink pretty. For lunch, we'll be enjoying a platter of turkey wraps and a couple summer salads.

I like how easy and pretty these different garlands are. I also love how they fit in with the paper theme.

Cupcakes are for dessert (of course). Cailen (my one day sister-in-law) makes the prettiest cupcakes and I'm excited to see what she makes :)

Wow! Sharing all of this made me realize how much I still have left to do. I usually procrastinate on things like this. I like to say that I work better under pressure, but that usually means a sleepless night before the shower. I really need to stop doing that.
