Baby Shower Brunch {On A Budget}

Sunday, March 26, 2017

A few months ago my neighbor and I had the opportunity to throw her assistant and our friend a baby shower.  She kept the gender a secret, so we kept it neutral and decided a simple baby shower brunch would be the perfect way to celebrate.  (Update: she had a beautiful baby girl)

Set Up: Keep it Simple

You could really go crazy when throwing baby showers or any kind of party at that.  If you're like me, you love Pinterest and know how out of hand that can get.  For this baby shower brunch, we kept it simple and stayed on a budget.  It was a small group of friends, so we kept the table setup to a minimum.  We had a simple gray tablecloth and used a mixture of teal, clear and white dishes.  


Less is more, right?  We went with the cutest and perfect sized BABY balloons from Twigs and Twirls and hung it above our brunch table.  We had a vase full of fresh flowers that tied it all together perfectly.  You really don't need to spend a lot to make a table look good.  Chalkboard tags are always nice to have to label food/drinks and they are reusable.  I always like to find decor that I know will have multiple uses, like the Celebrate banner below.
