This is the Perfect Summertime Celebration for Baby-To-Be

This past summer we were expecting our third baby, and my sweet friends wanted to throw me a baby shower. I opted for a non-traditional co-ed barbecue since it was our third child. I love all the popular pink flamingo parties I have seen, but when we found out we were a having a little boy, I knew pink was out! But I still wanted a bright, colorful and fun party, so we came up with this little cutie citrus baby shower!

My friends set up a table to welcome guests to the baby shower complete with a framed copy of the invitation and an adorable custom chalkboard sign.

Since the shower was a family event, we set up a small dessert table for the kids to enjoy, and it was filled with gum balls, lemon slice candies, lemon french macaroons, orange cream cake and sugar cookies.

Citrus-flavored Izze sparkling juices are one of my favorite summer drinks! They went perfectly with our theme, and they’re delicious.

We purchased flowers at the local farmers market and put them in vintage mason jars on the guest tables.

Hi Jennifer, Sorry I don't know the exact details on the tablecloth, but I think you could achieve a similar look by dip dying a white tablecloth. Good luck!
