A champagne brunch baby shower? Bubbly being the main theme….. is that weird? Thats what I said to my friend Roxy when she said she wanted a bubbly and brunch shower. Her response… “NO, it is awesome!” So that is exactly what we did. I used Pink as the main color since Roxy is having a girl (Frankie Belle!) and metallic champagne + gold for the accent colors to tie in the champagne bubbly theme. It turned out so cute and everyone had so much fun!
As usual I tried to DIY as much as possible and personalize lots of details to make this day extra special for Roxy. Below are a few pictures of the shower and if you keep scrolling down you will find instructions for the DIY details!
For the above juices I bought flavored lemonades at Trader joes and saved the cute bottles to use for the shower. It took a little Goo Off to get rid of the original labels, then I simply refilled the bottles with fresh fruit juices, also from trader joes. The flavors were grapefruit, mango, blood orange and pomegranate juice.
My besties… Laurel, Roxy (guest of honor) and Colleen!
Paint a Block
The “Paint a Block” activity was a hit! Everyone had fun painting and chatting. While the paint dried everyone took time to grab some food, get drink refills etc. It was an easy craft that people enjoyed and the finished product will look great in the nursery!
Coffee Filter Flowers
Spray painted mason jars with coffee filter flowers were used for centerpieces! Instructions below
I had these little dot garlands hanging everywhere. I made them by punching card stock using a circle punch and then sewing them all together into strands.
The buffet table centerpiece was two coffee filter flower jars connected by an OH BABY tassle sign. I used my Silhouette Machine for the letters.
I absolutely love baby gift bingo. It is a fun way to keep everyone engaged and interested in the gifts being opened. Be prepared to have at least 4-5 prizes because about 1/2 way through people will start winning quickly. I like to give away wine (affordable lower price trader joes wine) and I relabel them with some sort of winner stickers.
Water stickers are really easy to make. Simply print your design on adhesive paper, cut into strips and stick on. You can also just use regular paper and tape it together at the back. Works just as well. Make sure your waters don’t go into ice bucket tho, it will ruin the paper.
My friend Tanya Patterson made these adorable, amazing little gum ball favors. Roxy loves to chew gum balls and it looked so cute with the whole bubbly theme. She actually handmade every one of these, can you believe it? LOVE!
Above is my beautiful Mom who was gracious enough to let me use her house for the shower weekend (I threw this shower in my hometown where I no longer live… and yes, I schlepped all of these crafts and decor in my suitcases. Amazing what you can fit when you don’t have your child with you).
I got this idea from pinterest and it was so easy to make!! I sketched out the baby and glued on the pink circles cut out of craft paper then left it for people to fill in their comments. Roxys nursery colors are shades of pink with black so she framed this artwork and it is hanging in the nursery. Super Cute!
YOGURT PARFAIT CUPS
I bought 99 cent store cups and silverware and simply spray painted the bottoms of the cups and the ends of the silverware. I used these for the yogurt parfaits. Greek yogurt topped with fruit and granola. YUMMMM. It is a great vegetarian option for brunch and quick to make!
Mimosa Bar Fruit Serving Bowls
I bought these bowls at the 99 cent store and simply spray painted them with white primer then with Rustoleum Metallic champagne spray paint and Rustoleum glitter spray paint.
Gold Washi Swizzle Sticks
Super duper easy! I cut a few dowels down into small sticks (using gardening shears) then simply wrapped gold washi tape around the top. Next I cut out a middle triangle to create the flag shape.
Sewn Tissue Garland
I bought a few bags of tissue garland at the 99cent store and decided to sew them together to create a really cool textured background. It was fast to sew since these don’t need to be perfect, I didn’t sew in a straight line at all. Set your machine to the longest stitch possible like a baste gather stitch in sewing. I mixed up the textured garland with plain tissue to save a little time on the sewing.
Paint a Block Activity
Like I mentioned above, this paint a block shower activity turned out to be so much fun! Everyone talked, ate and drank while painting and decorating these cute little blocks. I bought alphabet blocks from amazon and I spray painted them white so they would be clean palette to paint on. At each place setting I had 2 paper plates (one to paint the block on, one to pour out your paint on), a cup of water, a napkin, a paint brush and some simple instructions. At each table I had various shades of pink paint along with sharpie pens so people can write their name or a note on the block. People actually used the gold sharpie pens to decorate the blocks as well which made me realize that you could prob just have people decorate with sharpie pens (metallic ones are great!), no paint would even be needed.
Silhouette Sign Making
I used my Silhouette Cutting machine to make the signs.
Tissue Tassel Garland
I made different tissue garlands to hang around the house. 1. You need tissue paper, thread, scissors and hot or regular glue 2. Fold the tissue lengthwise 3. Cut strips up to 1″ away from fold 4. Unfold 5. Unfold again 6. Roll up the tissue 7. Twist the center 8. Fold over string, then twist and glue to hold together 9. Hang the garland!
Coffee Filter Flowers
I spray painted some mason jars using the metallic spray paint then used coffee filters to make centerpiece flowers. I followed a few of the different instructions found on Bridal Musings Post the complete coffee filter flower guide. After I made the flowers I simply taped them to some plastic straws, cut the straws to length of mason jars and stuck them in!
Shower Activity – Creating Nursery Artwork
I made this little fill in the balloons artwork that I saw on pinterest. Such a cute idea and it looks fab in the nursery! Everyone put such sweet thoughts for Frankie Belle
