French themed Baby Shower


A little while ago I posted about the French themed baby shower invitation I had the delight to create.  This shower was special to me because the Gramma-to-be, Kim Levine, is one of my dearest friends.  Below is a picture of her with her lovely daughters, Sarah and Mom-to-be, Meredith.

Now that the shower has passed, I thought it would be fun to share all the pink and black French decorations!

This pink feather poodle tree was adorned with all the guests’ name tags.  I hand lettered the ‘Bienvenue’ banner on the tree  ( in my cursive font Belluccia, of course!) that welcomed guests along with this darling Baby Eiffel Tower creation by hostess Nanci Paskell.  Note the poodles below and on top of the tree eagerly waiting for guests to arrive. :)

Kim and Meredith were thrilled that all of the “Club Girls” were able to be there to share in the joy.  Ann, Claire, Ronnie, Kim, and myself have been friends since high school. Kim is the first to be a grandmother.

We were able to squeeze in a few other adventures while they were in town:)

The foyer was further themed with a lighted Eiffel Tower and Pink Shower Umbrella hanging over the dining table, created by sweet friend Therese Deptula.

The pink, black and “ooh la la” decor was carried into the main party areas of the house.  Above the kitchen island large pink poms in three tones were placed in the pot holder and a strand of pearls was draped around it.  Water in Eiffel Tower shaped flower vases was dyed pink for a cute touch.  I created pink food tent cards, featuring hand drawn cut outs of the Eiffel Tower, to identify the various dishes.

Refreshment table decor

Pink plates and napkins with pink and black ribbon

For guests to be able to distinguish their drinks, pink bottle labels with different French themed words were available.  A topiary with pink pom-poms served as a center piece of the refreshment table.  And the pink plates were complimented by napkins, lovingly tied by hostess Mary Leeper, with pink and black ribbon and pearls, of course!

Dessert table

The Dessert table featured cakes and cupcakes decorated with Eiffel Towers and Poodles.

One of our talented hostesses, Laura Evans, made all the items hanging from the fireplace.  She created two different sized tote bags and a garment bag containing a cute baby outfit out of the same fabric I used for the invitations.  How sweet is that!

Rocking Pink Poodle

And what little girl can do without this adorable Rocking Pink Poodle:)  “Gramma Kimmie” scooped this up long before there was any baby, let alone a girl, in the oven!

Favors for the guests were adorable Eiffel Tower and pink poodle cookies made by It’s a Mary Cake.  ‘Merci!’ tags and a ribbon tied them off.

I had so much fun being involved in the planning of this shower along with my fellow hostesses, Mary Leeper, Laura Evans, and Nanci Paskell. You’re the best!

Can’t wait for the arrival of Baby Budwin in June!
