Eric Carle Baby Shower

When Thomas and I were getting married I really wanted to skip the bridal shower. We had already been living together for almost three years and had everything we needed so it was a bit of an added stress trying to figure out logistics of a party between our four families.

Our baby shower on the other hand I was VERY excited to plan and decorate for!

We ended up hosting an Eric Carle themed party with around 100 people at our home for a co-ed BBQ with the help of our parents. Thomas’ mom and dad provided the mains and sides and my mom provided the cake and desserts. It truly was a picture perfect day filled with the spoiling’s of all our favourite people. We are blessed with wonderful loving families and friends who showed up to support us and celebrate the next wonderful chapter in our lives, we can’t thank you enough! Amadeo is the luckiest boy!

I wanted the Dessert table to be the star of the show at our Eric Carle themed shower. We rented the greenery backdrop and dessert table from @Pearldecor (they were our wedding decorators and now decorators for life!) Rasha is a DREAM to work with from start to finish and love and respect her as a creative and fierce entrepreneurial mother of a gorgeous little girl! I highly recommend looking into Pearl Decor for any of your party decorating needs!

Daina makes such amazing Desserts that we had only two cupcakes and a bit of cake leftover after the shower!I’ve never seen guests enjoying baked goods like these before and we will never order from anywhere else again!! Highly recommend her services and expertize!

A lot of our paper decorations I ordered off of Oriental Trading, usually I’m all for DIY projects for my parties however being 8 months pregnant this was the way to go!
Favor and Candy Buffet table 

We had a lot of children attend our shower and so I wanted activities and fun things set up for them to do and eat. Along with the take home pineapple cutting boards guests were encouraged to bring home lots of candy as well!

Food!!! We had a cooked pig, BBQ sausage’s and hot dogs, Pulled Pork, and about ten different salads to pair with veggies, chips and fruit! There is never a shortage of food at our parties (after all we are Italian) but there’s even more when our parents are providing and organizing the food!

The Most important part of our special day was sharing it with the people who mean the world to us and I know will mean the world to our son!

“The Very Hungry Caterpillar” is a story about hope. You like the little caterpillar, will grow up, unfold your wings and fly off into the future.” – Eric Carle
