Baby A’s Classic Burlap and Blue Shower


I co-hosted a baby shower for one of my childhood friends, Cortney.  Her cousin, Britny, best friend, Chrystale, and myself had so much fun collaborating for this very special occasion!  It turned out beautiful!  It had a masculine feel with the twine and burlap mixed with the hydrangea blue but still had a touch of feminine for the mommy!

Design Inspiration

The mommy-to-be requested a simple but pretty shower for her baby boy!  She specifically asked for blue hydrangea.  We kind of let it roll from there.  We had a ton of leftover burlap and lace from Britny's wedding the previous fall.  We felt the burlap and blue with accents of yellow and ivory would be a very complimenting color scheme!

Decorating Style

Vintage and Rustic

Project Details

Britny handmade the adorable invitations!  She could not have bought anything that cute!  Chrystale got the cake from A&J Bakery in Uptown Dallas.  Let me tell you...that was the best cinnamon streusel coffee cake I have ever eaten!  She ordered the cake as simple as possible and added all the decor to it herself.  I did all of the printed products at home which saved.  The grandmother-to-be had brunch catered in from a local restaurant, Chiloso's.  It allowed us to spend the majority of our time on details rather then trying to prepare food. 

Favorite Items

The favors.  They were simple and fairly inexpensive to make.  We spray painted tin cans white and tied a simple bow of twine around the tops.  We added a thank you tag that was hand written by the momma-to-be.  We found the yellow daisies on sale at a local dollar store.  


Start planning ahead.  This shower took place in March and we started planning in January!  Also make sure you have co-hosts.  If one of us had tried to do this on our own it would have been completely overwhelming!  It made everything so much easier with so many helping hands!

I love using twine and burlap, too! These materials would look really cool with flowers in bright, shouting colors.
